Bryant has been fined by the Cowboys following his absence from the team Monday through Wednesday this week, the Dallas Morning News reports,

EDGE Analysis

Injured on the initial drive of Sunday night's win against the Bears, Bryant wasn't receptive to news that the ailment may be serious and subsequently missed treatment and team meetings through Wednesday. Hence, the reason an MRI was delayed until midweek, when the Cowboys learned Bryant has a lateral hairline fracture of the tibial plateau in his right knee. According to Todd Archer of ESPN.com, head coach Jason Garrett said Bryant will miss a second consecutive practice Thursday, but the wideout cannot yet be ruled out for Sunday's game in San Francisco. If he's unable to take the field in Week 4, it could mark the first of multiple absences.

Bryant received a diagnosis of a hairline fracture in his right knee Wednesday, NFL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Bryant will seemingly feel the after-effects of the injury suffered on the Cowboy's' first drive of this past Sunday's game for some time, as intimated by head coach Jason Garrett, who said that the team will take his recovery "day-to-day, week-to-week." Garrett is hopeful that the standout wide receiver will miss no time as a result, but Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reported Bryant may suit up this week, or sit out three weeks in order to tend to the injury. With such a range of timetables for Bryant's next appearance, his status will be watched diligently in advance of Sunday's contest at San Francisco.

Bryant (right knee) will not practice Wednesday as the Cowboys continue to evaluate his injury, ESPN's Todd Archer reports.

EDGE Analysis

Per the report, coach Jason Garrett would not confirm Wednesday whether Bryant has had an MRI yet, while not offering much in the way of details on that front Wednesday. Garrett did note that Bryant's situation is day-to-day as Sunday's game against the 49ers approaches.

The results of the MRI Bryant underwent on his injured knee are expected to be released Wednesday, ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Bryant was able to return to Sunday's game after injuring his knee, but he was still sent for an MRI after the contest to determine the extent of his injury. It's not entirely clear when the test on Bryant's knee was performed, but the details of the exam should provide an update on his health heading into Week 4.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said he doesn't think Bryant (knee) ended up having an MRI, David Helman of the team's official website reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jones phrased the statement oddly, suggesting Bryant might have actually had an MRI, or else may end up having one later. In any case, there's been no indication the wide receiver's injury is serious, as he played through the issue in Sunday's win over the Bears. It remains to be seen if Bryant will miss any practice time leading up to Sunday's favorable matchup with the 49ers.

Bryant is anticipated to undergo an MRI on his right knee Monday morning, The Dallas Morning News reports.

EDGE Analysis

Bryant injured his knee during the second play of Sunday's night win over the Bears. Although he only missed a few plays following that incident, Bryant was seen receiving medical attention on the sideline during the course of the game, and had X-rays on his knee afterward. According to Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, Bryant may have sustained a sprain to his right knee, but the results of Monday's MRI should help clarify his condition and availability going forward.

Bryant caught three passes for 40 yards and a touchdown on six targets in Sunday's 31-17 win over the Bears.

EDGE Analysis

Bryant hurt his knee on the game's opening drive and subsequently missed a few snaps, but he otherwise rarely left the field. However, he may have been impacted by the soreness, as NBC's broadcast showed him getting medical attention on the sideline. Bryant still managed to salvage his night -- at least to some degree -- catching a 17-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter to give Dak Prescott the first passing score of his career. Oddly enough, Cole Beasley finished the night as the team's season-long leader in targets, receptions and receiving yards. While that obviously wont hold up unless Bryant suffers an injury, he probably won't get the consistent volume that's typical for elite wide receivers. Granted, that could change later in the season when Tony Romo (back) returns. For the time being, Bryant should enjoy a Week 4 matchup against a fast-paced San Francisco squad that was chewed up by Russell Wilson, Doug Baldwin and Jimmy Graham In Week 3.

Bryant led the team with 12 targets, seven catches and 107 receiving yards in Sunday's win over the Redskins.

EDGE Analysis

A week after he was only able to bring in one reception in a narrow loss to the Giants, Bryant was involved early and often Sunday, notching just his third 100-yard game since 2014. He struggled to produce when matched up against Josh Norman, but he feasted on the rest of the Washington secondary and could have had an even bigger day if he could have come down with one of the two jump balls he was thrown near the goal line. With the Dallas offense moving quite efficiently with Dak Prescott at the helm and the newfound emphasis on feeding Bryant, he could be in for another productive game in Week 3 at home against the Bears.

Bryant caught just 1-of-5 targets for eight yards in Sunday's 20-19 loss to the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

Bryant appeared to catch a nice touchdown pass in the second quarter, but the play was ultimately overturned via replay, as he bobbled the ball a bit in the back of the end zone. Dak Prescott didn't throw a touchdown pass, but didn't look bad, primarily using Jason Witten and Cole Beasley, who combined to catch 17 passes for 131 yards. It would be unwise to expect Bryant to be held down for too long, but next week's game at Washington represents a challenge, as the star wideout will likely square off against prized free agent Josh Norman.

Bryant (concussion) is not listed on Wednesday's injury report.

EDGE Analysis

Bryant only missed a few days of practice after suffering a concussion more than two weeks ago. This merely confirms that he's fine for Week 1 against the Giants, though it remains to be seen how he'll fare with rookie Dak Prescott under center.
