ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Dez Bryant will return for the Dallas Cowboys against Philadelphia after missing three games with a hairline fracture of a bone in his right knee.

The 2014 All-Pro receiver was active for Sunday night’s game between the NFC East rivals, with Dallas seeking a sixth straight win behind Dak Prescott. The rookie quarterback is filling in for Tony Romo, who practiced for the first time this past week after breaking a bone in his back in a preseason game. Romo was declared out Friday.

Cowboys cornerback Orlando Scandrick was active after missing four games with injuries to both hamstrings. He was out all last season after injuring a knee in training camp.

Philadelphia defensive tackle Bennie Logan is missing his second straight game with a groin strain. Beau Allen started in his place in last week’s win over Minnesota and recovered a fumble.
