SAN FRANCISCO — Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant will not play agains the 49ers.

He has been ruled inactive for today's game.

The second year player bruised a quad muscle in the season opener against the Jets.  Bryant missed workouts all week, but the team said the move would be a game time decision.  That decision not good for Bryant or the club.

That means your top three receivers today will be Miles Austin, Kevin Ogletree, and Jesse Holley.

21 personnel anyone?  Look for more 2 tight end formations.  That means in his first game-time action of the season, tight end Martellus Bennett could get some opportunities to make a difference.
