NFL Network's Jason La Canfora is reporting that Cowboys WR Dez Bryant will make his NFL debut Week One against the Redskins.

Bryant missed the entire preseason with a high ankle sprain after an eye-opening start to training camp, where he was a daily star.

The Cowboys' offense struggled without Bryant, but it also lacked a healthy offensive line for much of it.

Bryant is not expected to start, but he likely will be heavily involved as the No. 3 receiver behind Miles Austin and Roy Williams and as a punt and kickoff returner.

The 24th pick in the 2010 draft, Bryant missed all but three games of his final season at Oklahoma State after being suspended for lying to the NCAA.
