Cowboys' Bryant misses practice, plans to play

Dallas receiver Dez Bryant says he will play in a winner-take-all finale against Philadelphia despite missing practice because of a persistent back problem.

Bryant was downgraded on the practice report Thursday, a day after being a limited participant when the back flared up. He said he aggravated his back in the 24-23 win over Washington.

The Cowboys (8-7) play the Eagles (9-6) on Sunday night in their third straight season-ender with the NFC East title and a playoff berth on the line.

Bryant said he planned to have doctors take a closer look at his back after the season. He had back problems last season as well.

Receiver/kick returner Dwayne Harris (hamstring) was upgraded to a full participant.
