A key member of the Dallas Cowboys offense has been listed as questionable on their injury report for this Sunday's game against the Baltimore Ravens, but there may not be a reason to hit the panic button.
Earlier this season, wide receiver Dez Bryant missed three weeks - between week four and week six - due to a knee injury. The Cowboys managed to win all their games without him, but the wideout is always a threat on offense thanks to his big play ability, so they would have loved to have him on the field.
However, he could end up missing Dallas' game this weekend as he has been added to the injury report once more, according to ESPN.

ESPN's Todd Archer said: "Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant was added to the injury list with a back injury after he was limited in Friday's practice but given how Bryant moved around following the workout there's little doubt he will play.
"Tony Romo, Tyron Smith, DeMarcus Lawrence and Chaz Green are also listed as questionable but expected to be active against Baltimore."

That's good news for the Cowboys, but like most players that are given a questionable status, an announcement as to whether or not they will play won't be given until game day.
Bryant has been brilliant since returning from his knee injury after the team's bye week, only having one disappointing game against the Cleveland Browns in week nine.
He took off against the Pittsburgh Steelers last Sunday, catching six of nine targets for 116 yards and a touchdown, his best performance of 2016 from the six games which he has played in.
The two-time Pro Bowler will be hoping to be active so he can repeat that kind of performance against the Ravens this week, but we'll have to wait until Sunday to find out if that is the case.
