Cowboys rookie quarterback Dak Prescott, who has turned heads with the impressive start to his NFL career, said today the 49ers expressed little interest in him prior to the draft. The 49ers didn’t draft a quarterback until the sixth round when they selected Jeff Driskel, who was among their final roster cuts.
After getting burned by No. 1 wide receivers the past two weeks, it appears the 49ers could avoid facing Dez Bryant when they host the Cowboys on Sunday at Levi’s Stadium.
Dallas head coach Jason Garrett revealed that Bryant has a hairline fracture in a knee bone, an injury he sustained in a 31-17 win over the Bears on Sunday.
Bryant sustained the injury early in the first quarter Sunday, but missed only six plays and finished with three catches for 40 yards, including a 17-yard touchdown.
In Week 2, Panthers wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin had seven catches for 108 yards and two touchdowns in a 46-27 win over the 49ers.
Bryant, 27, had three straight seasons (2012-14) in which he collected at least 1,200 yards and 12 touchdowns before he missed seven games last year with a broken foot.
