OXNARD, California — Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant told reporters he was fine when he left the practice field Saturday, but he missed the final portion of team drills after feeling tightness in his hamstring.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones says the team will take the same approach with Bryant that they have with his fellow starting wideout Miles Austin. 

When it comes to hamstring issues, the Cowboys say they'll take a conservative approach - no need to push anyone at this point of the preseason.

That means Bryant could miss the preseason opener Monday night in Oakland.

Austin won't play, and if Bryant misses as well, your starting receiver tandem will probably be Kevin Ogletree and Dwayne Harris.
