Dez Bryant’s knee bent awkwardly in the first quarter of Sunday night’s 31-17 victory over the Chicago Bears jerseys, causing the star receiver to limp toward the sideline in what has become an all too familiar sight in Dallas.
After working out the knee, Bryant returned to play the rest of the game, catching Dak Prescott’s first career touchdown pass.

Owner Jerry Jones was optimistic Sunday night that Bryant’s injury isn’t serious.Despite playing through the injury, the Cowboys receiver underwent X-rays Sunday night and underwent an MRI on Monday, coach Jason Garrett said. Garrett added the team is continuing to wait for results from Bryant’s tests.
“We feel OK,” Jones said, via ESPN.com. “We’re going to do some other things, too. But right here, yes. Right now, we’re fine.”
The injury came on the second play from scrimmage. Replay showed Bryant’s right knee caught under the defender. He returned to play 52 of 68 snaps, the most of any Dallas receiver, catching three of six targets for 40 yards and the score.
Bryant missed seven games in 2015 with a foot injury and never looked right when he returned after the Week 1 break. The Cowboys hope their rookie quarterback won’t face playing without the star receiver.
“I saw how the knee took it. That was a little concerning,” Jones said. “I did see him moving around, but I saw Michael Irvin — I’ll never forget that — go back out and play (after an ACL injury) … We’ve got what we’ve seen in here, and that’s not something I would be alarmed about.”
Thanks, Mr. Jones, for conjuring Irvin’s ACL when discussing Bryant’s most recent injury. As if the blood pressure in Dallas needed that spike. Now Cowboys fans will be holding their breath until the test results are made public.
With Rolando McClain facing a 10-game ban, the Dallas Cowboys jerseys are searching for help at linebacker.
A reunion with Justin Durant is the first step.
The Cowboys signed the veteran linebacker to a one-year deal Monday, the team announced. And even the team is billing the signing as a depth-related move.
McClain suited up for the Atlanta Falcons in 2015, registering 82 tackles in an otherwise forgettable season under Dan Quinn. He was released in February.
Durant played in Dallas in 2013 and 2014, compiling 73 tackles in 12 starts, and is familiar with the Cowboys’ system. But at 31 years old, it’s clear he’s a stopgap at best.

In need of an experienced backup with Tony Romo sidelined for two months, the Cowboys will work out free agent signal-caller Austin Davis on Wednesday, Bryan Broaddus of the team’s official website reported.
Davis was waived Monday after starting two games for the Browns last season.
Undrafted out of Southern Miss, Davis generated momentary buzz in NFL circles when he passed for more than 300 yards and three touchdowns in each of the second and third starts of his Rams career in 2014.
After failing to top 250 yards in any of his next five starts, he was promptly benched for Shaun Hill jersey and ultimately waived in September of 2015.
Due to his physical limitations, Davis is best-suited for an emergency role. If he ends up in Dallas, he will likely back up preseason sensation Dak Prescott, relegating Jameill Showers to third on wholesale NFL jerseys and the depth chart.
Rapoport noted that Tony Romo might not be physically ready to play versus the Cleveland Browns in Week 9. The Cowboys will be prudent with their 36-year-old quarterback coming off a back injury. Coach Jason Garrett told reporters Wednesday Romo hasn’t been cleared for practice, but is throwing more and working on enhancing his core strength.
Health is a convenient excuse for Dallas to keep Romo on the sideline. Even if he were healthy, the Cowboys shouldn’t bench Prescott at this point.
The offense is rolling behind a punishing offensive line, Ezekiel Elliott and the sublime play of Prescott. The rookie quarterback frequently throws darts under pressure, displays heady decision making and elusiveness without the tendency to flee the pocket too early.
The stats speak for themselves. Prescott broke Tom Brady’s record (162) for most pass attempts without an interception to begin a career, which ended at 176 against Green Bay on Sunday. He earned a passer rating over 100.0 in five of six starts. Prescott has completed 68.7 percent of his passes, second-highest among quarterbacks that started every game this season (Matthew Stafford). His 8.2 yard per attempt average is the fifth highest in NFL. The 7-to-1 TD-to-INT ratio speaks for itself — only Brian Hoyer has thrown more passes with fewer picks.
The Cowboys might have had a mutiny on their hands if they benched Dak. That won’t happen after the bye week.
