Dez Bryant injury update: star Cowboys wideout says he's out "day-to-day" after a meeting with Dr. James Andrews.
Dez Bryant injury update: Dallas Cowboys star wide receiver Dez Bryant is reportedly "day-to-day" after suffering a slight hairline fracture in his right knee. Who's making that call? Bryant himself.
Bryant took to Twitter on Thursday to apologize to fans for his behavior earlier this week, which included skipping an MRI and missing team meetings on both Monday and Tuesday. He also noted that after a positive meeting with Dr. James Andrews, he's "day-to-day." The team, of course, has not confirmed that report.
He also shot down the theory that he'd be out three months.
Bryant suffered the injury in his team's win over the Chicago Bears on Sunday night. Cowboys coach Jason Garrett had this to say about Bryant's behavior this week:
"Right after the game on Sunday night, he got some information about his knee and he suspected it was a serious injury," Garrett said. "He's a very passionate guy, like we've talked about, and he really thought he was going to get some bad news when he got the MRI on Monday. Like some of us do in life, at times, he avoided it and didn't come in to take care of his business on Monday or Tuesday. Then he came in on Wednesday and took care of that part of it (the MRI). We got the information. He suspected it was worse than the information that we got."
It remains to be seen how much time Bryant will miss. But it looks like he'll return to the field sooner rather than later.
Bryant, one of the most electric players in the league, has 11 catches for 150 yards and a touchdown this year. He's playing in his seventh season in the NFL after being drafted 24th overall by Dallas back in the 2010 NFL Draft.
