The Cowboys will likely have an official announcement on Monday. But Dez Bryant has already let the cat out of the bag on Twitter with this tweet Sunday night _ Back in Action Thursday Night !!!!

Bryant has been out since the first week of training camp with a high ankle sprain. He has finally been cleared to return to practice this week. Owner Jerry Jones said there was a chance the Cowboys would play Bryant in the preseason final against the Dolphins Thursday night. But he said it was likely contingent on the starters playing as well.
After Saturday's embarrassing blowout loss to the Texans, both Jones and coach Wade Phillips said they were considering playing the starters some on Thursday rather than rest them until the season opener because they need more work.
Maybe Bryant will provide the spark that is missing from the offense. He was simply the best receiver in camp before he suffered the ankle injury.
The first-team offense has scored just one touchdown in 12 possessions through four preseason games and that one was set up by an 80-yard fumble return.
