Cowboys WR Dez Bryant has hairline knee fracture
Dez Bryant has a slight hairline fracture in a bone in his right knee, though Dallas Cowboys coach Jason Garrett says the receiver might not miss a game.
Bryant didn’t practice Wednesday, three days after getting hurt in a win over Chicago, and the same day the team got back results of an MRI.
Garrett said he has been told that some players never miss time with that kind of injury.
“We’ve had players with this kind of injury who missed no time in the past and other players who have missed up to a week or more than that,” Garrett said. “We don’t think it’s something that will keep him out for an extended period of time. It will be a day-by-day, week-byweek situation.”
Bryant injured the knee on his first catch on the opening series against the Bears, but came back in the first quarter. He caught his first touchdown of the season in the fourth quarter of the 31-17 win.
Bryant missed seven games last year after breaking his foot in the opener. He also dealt with knee and ankle injuries last season.
