Last weekend, Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant suffered a hairline fracture near his knee. However, the Cowboys have not officially ruled him out for the team's game on Sunday against the San Francisco 49ers.
Ian Rapoport of NFL Network is reporting that Bryant has traveled to San Francisco (actually the Santa Clara area) with the Cowboys. Had he been officially ruled out, he likely would not have made the trip. Bryant was listed as questionable on Dallas' official injury report on Friday.

On Thursday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reported that Bryant could miss up to three weeks with the injury. While he is very unlikely to play against the 49ers on Sunday, we probably won't officially know for sure until about 90 minutes prior to kickoff when teams announce their inactive players for the game.
For the 49ers, CB Jimmie Ward has officially been ruled out and it is likely that either Rashard Robinson or Keith Reaser starts in his place. Ward suffered a quad injury during the second quarter of Sunday's loss to the Seattle Seahawks. He is reportedly week-to-week.
