Dez Bryant sets the record straight on his injury, missed MRI and health

BY foxsports • September 29, 2016

Dez Bryant has been a hot topic since hurting his right knee Sunday, with rumors swirling about how long he might be out. Then on Thursday, Dallas Cowboys coach Jason Garrett addressed reports that the star wide receiver, who'd been missing from practice and team meetings, had avoided getting an MRI and was fined by the team.

Bryant clearly was getting frustrated about the critics talking about him, not to him.

So he took to Twitter to set the record straight on his actions ...

... his injury (hairline fracture) and his status:

The Cowboys play the 49ers on Sunday, and while Bryant indicated that he could be healthy enough, Garrett might not elect to play him after he missed the first two days of practice.

Bryant missed seven games last season, the first five after breaking his right foot in the opener. The foot wasn't the same all season, and he also battled ankle and knee injuries. The Cowboys opted to sit him the final two games when they were out of contention on the way to a 4-12 finish.
