Receiver Dez Bryant will undergo an MRI today, according to a source.

Bryant injured his right knee on the second play of Sunday’s game when his leg got caught underneath Bears linebacker Christian Jones. Bryant returned after sitting out five plays.

“I’m always concerned,” Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said Tuesday on his weekly radio show on 105.3 The Fan. “We’ll monitor him through the day.

“…But he certainly finished the game out. That in and of itself is a good indication. It doesn’t mean he’s going to be free of the symptoms or the injury.”

The Cowboys are crossing their fingers.

Bryant never played fully healthy last season, missing seven games with a foot injury that twice required surgery. He also had ankle and knee injuries he played through.

Bryant has 11 catches for 150 yards and a touchdown this season, including seven catches for 102 yards in Week 2 against the Redskins.
