Still No MRI For Dez, As Cowboys Continue To Monitor Injured Knee

FRISCO, Texas – There's still no update on Dez Bryant's much-discussed MRI, to hear it from the Cowboys' front office.

Speaking in a radio interview with 105.3 FM The Fan on Tuesday morning, Cowboys owner/general manager Jerry Jones said Bryant had not yet undergone the MRI after suffering a knee injury in Sunday night's 31-17 win against Chicago.

"He hasn't taken an MRI, to my knowledge," Jones said. "I'm assuming that he's on go. But I don't – will he get an MRI here, probably later today? Maybe."

Bryant was expected to undergo the scan on Monday, after he injured the knee in the first quarter against the Bears. The All-Pro receiver returned to the action and finished with three catches for 40 yards and the game-clinching touchdown.

That fact was cause for optimism that Bryant will be available as the Cowboys begin preparations for their Week 4 trip to San Francisco.

"He certainly finished the game out, and that in and of itself is a good indication," Jones said. "It doesn't mean that he's going to be free of the symptoms or the injury, but, again, we may look at an MRI before this day is over."

Still, it's understandable to feel some concern where the Cowboys' best receiver is concerned. Bryant missed seven games last season with various injuries – including a knee injury he sustained while scoring a touchdown against Philadelphia in Week 9 of the season.

I don't want it to sound anyway. I'm always concerned," Jones said. "This is their day off, and we'll monitor him through the day. It may be that later in the day he does an MRI, and if he does, we'll give the results."
