Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant was diagnosed with a foot sprain after Sunday’s victory over the Giants, but said Monday that he felt certain he would be on the field for the team’s Week Two date with the Chiefs.
That confidence wasn’t enough to keep him from getting an MRI on his left foot to see if there was any structural damage that might get in the way of Bryan’t prediction coming true.
According to Ed Werder of ESPN, the MRI showed nothing of the sort. Werder reports that the test showed Bryant suffered a “mild” sprain of his foot and that the Cowboys fully expect him to be on the field against the Chiefs, although he may be a limited participant in practice during the week because of the injury.
It’s probably a good bet that Bryant will be on the field. He’s played through injuries in the past without seeing much of a drop in effectiveness and he returned to the field on Sunday night after initially suffering the foot injury, so there’s every reason to believe he’ll be on the field for a date with a defense that didn’t allow a point in Week One.
