Cowboys' Bryant says he's playing against Steelers

IRVING, Texas (AP) Dallas Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant says he will play with a broken finger Sunday against Pittsburgh and there are signs that it might not be wishful thinking.

Bryant was listed as a limited participant in practice Thursday, an upgrade from a day earlier, when he sat out. Dallas coach Jason Garrett said he caught some passes in practice after saying before the workout he didn't think Bryant would.

The third-year pro fractured his left index finger in last weekend's 20-19 win at Cincinnati, but he caught a touchdown after getting injured. He will need surgery, but the question remains whether he can try to play through the injury and have surgery after the season.

It didn't seem like much of a question in Bryant's mind Thursday.

``Only thing y'all need to know is I'm playing,'' he said while ducking in and out of the locker room without stopping for interviews.

Bryant was the last player on the field for the open portion of practice, and he was wearing a padded white glove that had the tip of the finger exposed. Several players said he looked good catching passes.

``There are different ways to catch a ball,'' quarterback Tony Romo said. ``He can probably tell you better than anybody just how to catch a football. I trust him. If he's going to put himself in that position, I know he's going to find a way to play at a certain level.''

Bryant wants to keep playing for two reasons: the Cowboys (7-6) still have a shot at the playoffs, and he's in the best stretch of his career. The third-year pro has his first 1,000-yard season and has scored in a career-best five straight games.

Dallas has won four of five, and Bryant has 33 catches for 525 yards and seven TDs in that stretch.

``He certainly has a willingness to play,'' Garrett said. ``We've just got to see if he can function the way he needs to.''

Potential coaching candidate Urban Meyer spotted at Redskins-Eagles game

Potential coaching candidate Urban Meyer spotted at Redskins-Eagles game

Former Ohio State coach Urban Meyer is in attendance at the Redskins game on Sunday, according to NBC Sports Washington's JP Finlay. Which leads to one question for fans: Is he there to catch a game and cheer on his former QB or a glimpse at his future?

Meyer's name has surfaced in rumors as a potential candidate for the open job in Washington in recent weeks and was on the top of fans' lists before that. He coached Haskins at Ohio State, where he won a title and went 83-9 in his seven years in Columbus. 

He retired from the Buckeyes at the end of the 2018 season, citing health reasons. Before his time in Columbus, Meyer spent six years at the helm in Florida, where he went 65-15. He stepped down from that program in 2009, also citing health reasons at the time.

Redskins vs. Eagles Week 15: Date, time, TV channel, live stream, how to watch

When the Philadelphia Eagles defeated the Washington Redskins in Week 1 on the 2019 NFL season, things were a lot different. 

Despite the loss, the Redskins had hopes of contending with veteran quarterback Case Keenum and some offensive talent, while the Eagles and a fully-healthy Carson Wentz were expected to be Super Bowl contenders. Fast forward to Week 15, and that hasn't been the case.

The Redskins struggles have come in bunches. A 3-10 record, Washington has dealt with injuries, off the field problems and the firing of Jay Gruden during the season. Things in Philadelphia haven't gone much better. At 6-7, Philadelphia is still fighting for a playoff spot, but an inconsistent offense has led to an underwhelming year for Wentz and company.

On Sunday, the Eagles will fight to keep their NFC East title hopes alive while the Redskins look to see more growth from rookie quarterback Dwayne Haskins. The Week 15 matchup may not be what was expected earlier in the season, but it still has implications. Here's everything you need to know about the game.
