Jones phrased the statement oddly, suggesting Bryant might have actually had an MRI, or else may end up having one later. In any case, there's been no indication the wide receiver's injury is serious, as he played through the issue in Sunday's win over the Bears. It remains to be seen if Bryant will miss any practice time leading up to Sunday's favorable matchup with the 49ers.
Bryant injured his knee during the second play of Sunday's night win over the Bears. Although he only missed a few plays following that incident, he was seen receiving medical attention on the sideline during the course of the game and had X-rays on his knee afterward. According to
A week after he was only able to bring in one reception in a narrow loss to the Giants, Bryant was involved early and often Sunday, notching just his third 100-yard game since 2014. He struggled to produce when matched up against Josh Norman, but he feasted on the rest of the Washington secondary and could have had an even bigger day if he could have come down with one of the two jump balls he was thrown near the goal line. With the Dallas offense moving quite efficiently with Dak Prescott at the helm-- and the newfound emphasis on feeding Bryant-- he could be in for another productive game in Week 3 at home against the Bears.
Bryant appeared to catch a nice touchdown pass in the second quarter, but the play was ultimately overturned via replay, as he bobbled the ball a bit in the back of the end zone. Dak Prescott didn't throw a touchdown pass but also didn't look bad, primarily using Jason Witten and Cole Beasley, who combined to catch 17 passes for 131 yards. It would be unwise to expect Bryant to be held down for too long, but next week's game at Washington represents a challenge, as the star wideout will likely square off against prized offseason acquisition Josh Norman.
Bryant (concussion) is not listed on Wednesday's injury report.
Bryant only missed a few days of practice after suffering a concussion more than two weeks ago. This merely confirms that he's fine for Week 1 against the Giants, though it remains to be seen how he'll fare with rookie Dak Prescott under center.
