    Bryant set to undergo MRI after suffering knee injury in practice

    Posted on 08/20/2012 by Tom Orsborn


    Wide receiver Dez Bryant will undergo an MRI after suffering a knee injury during practice Monday, according to the team’s web site.

    With No. 1 wideout Miles Austin sidelined for the rest of the preseason with a hamstring injury that’s already kept him out of most of camp and the first two exhibition games, the Cowboys can ill afford to lose Bryant.

    Austin is expected to be ready for the Sept. 5 season opener at the New York Giants, but his long layoff could lead to timing issues with quarterback Tony Romo.

    Two other receivers, Andre Holmes and Tim Benford, apparently also suffered injuries Monday. Their status is unknown...

    Beasley, Harris, and Ogletree have maybe had the best preseason so far of the WRs 3-5 candidates....and may make the team by default anyway.

    Can a mod edit the title to say that it's been diagnosed as patellar tendonitis?

    Patellar tendinitis is an injury that affects the tendon connecting your kneecap (patella) to your shinbone. The patellar tendon plays a pivotal role in the way you use your leg muscles. It helps your muscles extend your knee so that you can kick a ball, run uphill and jump up in the air.

    Patellar tendinitis is most common in athletes whose sports involve frequent jumping — such as basketball and volleyball. For this reason, patellar tendinitis is commonly known as jumper's knee. However, even people who don't participate in jumping sports can experience patellar tendinitis.

    For most people, treatment of patellar tendinitis begins with physical therapy to stretch and strengthen the muscles around the knee
