Dez Bryant heading for MRI on knee

The Cowboys are starting to run out of people to catch Tony Romo’s passes.

Miles Austin will be out a while longer with his hamstring injury, Jason Witten is in a holding pattern after lacerating his spleen and now Dez Bryant will be headed to the MRI machine. Nick Eatman of the team’s website reports that Bryant left Monday’s joint practice with the Chargers after it looked like he slipped on the grass coming out of a break. He immediately limped off the field with the trainers and didn’t return to the session.

Calvin Watkins of ESPNDallas.com said that Bryant answered in the affirmative when asked if he was fine while making his way off the practice field. We imagine that the Cowboys will be waiting for the results of the MRI before making any such proclamations. Bryant had previously dealt with a hamstring injury this summer.

If that wasn’t enough fun for one day, the Cowboys also lost two other receivers to injuries on Monday. Andre Holmes left practice with a back injury and Donovan Kemp also hurt his knee. Per Watkins, both of them will also be getting MRIs to evaluate the extent of their injuries.

All of the injuries at receiver have left the Cowboys with a skeleton crew at the position. If Bryant’s injury is at all serious, it may be time for the Cowboys to polish off that list of available wideouts.

    If T.O. blows another game like he did Saturday night T.O. WILL be available. I am not a fan of Pete Carroll in the least bit but I give him credit for not taking any BS from his players

    This is all I’ve been worried about w/ the joint practices.

    Hopefully it’s nothing serious. I really do not want the Rhodes Scholar Plaxico anywhere near my rooting interests.

    Looks like it’s just precautionary. Minor tweak.

    That creak you hear is the sound of the Cowboys window of opportunity closing faster and faster….

    Chad “Ochowhatever” Johnson is available on the cheap.

    TO is fine dropping passes that hit him in the hands right where he is.

    He doesn’t even have enough brains to understand how to stay healthy. All of this kids problems are the result of being a certified Bird Brain. He has over the top physical talent and athletic abilities, but it all goes straight down the drain because of the little pebble brain ricocheting around inside his cranium. Nothing sadder than wasted talent. This clown will never reach his potential because he’s a total and complete Bird Brain.
