The Dallas Cowboys have not had a great start to the 2015 NFL season, finding themselves floundering with a 2-3 record.
The Cowboys have opened up the campaign in devastating fashion, losing both starting quarterback Tony Romo and star wide receiver Dez Bryant to injury, significantly harming their chances of making the playoffs.
Dallas have yet to win a game since the pair went down hurt, but could be set to receive a huge boost, with Bryant potentially returning this week.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones was on “Shan and RJ” on 105.3 The Fan, via the Dallas Morning News, and said that there is a possibility of Dez making a big return.
Jones said the team will gauge Bryant’s work in practice on Wednesday and Thursday before making the call.
Listen to his Body
“It totally depends on how he’s doing,” Jones said. “He had a good end of the week last week. He got in some really good work. He didn’t have much negative response from that work. It was strenuous work, the kind that if he can step out here and have a couple of really good days of practice then you could see him go. "
Ultimately, Bryant is probably the only man who can fully say if he will play or not on Sunday. He has to listen to his body and make the best decision, as Jones alluded to.
"Everybody will get a feel for it, but more importantly, he’ll get a feel for it. He’s the key. He’ll have to decide, does he push off on it? This is strictly ‘Do you feel comfortable making your cuts? If you do, then it’s on go. If not, then we’ll wait a week.'”
The Cowboys will be facing the New York Giants in a crucial NFC East divisional matchup. They will want to get back to winning ways, whether that is with Dez Bryant or not.
