Dez Bryant reports good MRI results on knee

A week that started with word that the Dallas Cowboys were no closer to getting starting wide receiver Miles Austin back from injury teetered on disaster when Dez Bryant had to leave practice early Monday. Fortunately for the Cowboys, the MRI results on Bryant's right knee appear to be as positive as can be expected.

David Moore of The Dallas Morning News reports:

Bryant has patellar tendinitis in right knee according to an MRI, but that apparently won’t keep him out of the opener on Sept. 5 against the Giants. The question is how much rest his knee requires until then.

The receiver suffered the injury during a one-on-one drill in the early part of Monday’s practice with San Diego and didn’t return. On his way to have the MRI, Bryant replied “yeah’’ when asked by reporters if he was OK.

“Hopefully this injury is not too severe,’’ head coach Jason Garrett said earlier today. “But if it is, we’ll deal with it and go forward.’’
