The MRI on Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant’s injured knee revealed no structural damage. According to a report by Rowan Kavner on Dallascowboys.com, Bryant has been diagnosed with patellar tendinitis.
Bryant suffered the injury on Monday while practicing against the Chargers. The former Oklahoma State star slipped coming out of a break while attempting to run a route.
Kavner reports that “Bryant is day-to-day and no timetable has been set for his return to practice. Patellar tendinitis is also known as “jumper’s knee,” and occurs most frequently in athletes who jump routinely, as Bryant did when he soared into the air to snag a ball in the back of the endzone Saturday.”
