No scrutural knee damage for Dal WR Bryant - [Full Article]

An MRI on Dez Bryant's injured knee revealed patellar tendinitis, according to a source, which should only require rest before the star receiver can return to practice.

Bryant hurt his knee Monday practicing against the Chargers when he slipped coming out of a break. The MRI revealed no major structural damage and provides a much less severe diagnosis than originally feared when Bryant limped off the field.

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.

Fantasy Impact: 

Dez Bryant is one of a handful of WRs available in the middle of the 4th round in 12 team leagues. We prefer Jordy Nelson & Percy Harvin. Bryant could be a target if he falls significantly in your draft due to injury concerns. However, there are a lot of red flags here.
