IRVING, Texas --- Dallas Cowboys rookie wide receiver Dez Bryant missed practice Wednesday with a bruised hip.

Bryant suffered the injury after making a catch and crashing into a camerman along the Cowboys' sideline in their victory over the Houston Texans last Sunday.

"We had that looked at today," coach Wade Phillips said. "We don't think it's anything serious, but we had that looked at. It's not a hip pointer."

The Cowboys are not required to provide a injury report because they're having a bye week, but tackle Marc Colombo (knee), tight end Jason Witten (knee) and left guard Kyle Kosier (knee) also missed practice.

Phillips said Colombo's absence was more a precautionary.

As far as Kosier and Witten go, Phillips noted, "I think again we'll see where they are [next week] and reevaluate."
