Cowboys WR Dez Bryant had his knee checked after limping off the practice field on Monday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant limped off the practice field on Monday and had his knee examined by trainers. ESPN Dallas.com reports that Bryant slipped coming out of a break during 1-on-1 drills. Bryant later came out of the training room with no noticeable limp and told reporters in a serious tone that he was OK. He did not return to practice.

Analysis: Unless more comes out later, this just sounds like a scare for the Cowboys. Bryant is a top target in that offense and one of the better receivers in fantasy football. He had 63 catches for more than 900 yards last season and will again be counted on by Tony Romo and the rest of the Cowboys. At this time, there doesn't appear to be a reason for fantasy owners to adjust their rankings but monitor this in case it is something more serious.
