Garrett: Dez Bryant Won't Practice Wednesday; Team Still Evaluating His Knee

FRISCO, Texas – Wide receiver Dez Bryant will not practice Wednesday as the Cowboys continue to evaluate the status of his injured right knee, head coach Jason Garrett said.

"We'll take it day by day," Garrett said.

Bryant hurt his knee during an 11-yard catch on the second play from scrimmage in last Sunday's 31-17 win over the Chicago Bears. He missed a handful of plays but returned for the majority of the game and caught three passes for 40 yards, including a 17-yard touchdown from quarterback Dak Prescott.

"You're getting feedback from the player and how he feels and how he's able to function," Garrett said. "Obviously he functioned pretty well at the end of the ballgame. He caught a slant and ran two guys over and ran it in for a touchdown. He was feeling good enough then, and we'll see how he feels as the week goes on and what the evaluation is medically."

Garrett said the team does not yet have the results of the follow-up MRI Bryant was expected to get this week.

Asked if Bryant could play Sunday against the San Francisco 49ers without practicing, Garrett said, "We've just got to see how he does today and as we go forward in the week." He said it was premature to speculate who might replace him in the lineup for Week 4 if he's unable to play.
