Cowboys' Bryant questionable vs SF, remorseful for absence
FRISCO, Texas (AP) Dez Bryant is questionable for Dallas' game against San Francisco, and remorseful about going AWOL on the Cowboys early in the week over fear about his knee injury.
The 2014 All-Pro receiver didn't practice all week after sustaining a hairline fracture in a bone in his right knee in last week's win over Chicago. He was officially listed as questionable Friday.
Owner Jerry Jones said on his radio show Friday that an X-ray the night of the game revealed the hairline fracture, and Bryant missed a follow-up MRI on Monday and team meetings Tuesday because he didn't want to get some bad news.
Bryant missed seven games last season after breaking his right foot in the opener and also battled ankle and knee issues. He says he wishes he ''would have done a better job'' communicating with the team while he was away.
