Cow­boys WR Dez Bryant has hair­line knee frac­ture

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - SPORTS -

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.
