Dez Bryant and Cole Beasley were both injured on the Dallas Cowboys’ opening drive of the game, but have returned.

Bryant appeared to injure his right knee after an 11-yard catch on the second play of the game. He went to the sideline then headed to the locker room before returning.

He missed six snaps, but is now playing with a sleeve on his knee.

Beasley took a big hit from Adrian Amos and appeared to get the wind knocked out of him.

The Cowboys still scored on Dak Prescott’s 1-yard run for an early 7-0 lead.

Both receivers were back on the field for the Cowboys’ second series, which ended with a Dan Bailey field goal and a 10-0 lead.
