Dez Bryant sat out practice Tuesday after being diagnosed Monday with patellar tendinitis. We break down the fantasy implications.
Dez Bryant sat out Dallas Cowboys practice Tuesday after being diagnosed Monday with patellar tendinitis, according to Todd Archer of ESPN Dallas. The diagnosis is actually good news compared to what was initially feared when news broke that Bryant was forced to limp off the field into the locker room during practice Monday. There is no word yet on how much time Bryant will miss.
Analysis: Bryant will apparently be fine for the start of the regular season, though the fact that he constantly finds himself on the injury report is nonetheless disheartening. The potential is through the roof for the third-year wideout if he can stay on the field. That may be asking a lot, however. Bryant was slowed by hamstring problems last season, and missed three games at the end of 2010 with a broken fibula.
