The Dallas Cowboys held Cowboys Night (aka the Blue and White Scrimmage) on Sunday evening, and we are now officially less than two weeks away from the regular season.

When Dallas ultimately takes the field on September 13th against the Los Angeles Rams, there will be plenty of eyes on an offense that is expected to put up serious points. Amari Cooper, Michael Gallup, and CeeDee Lamb figure to be one of the league’s best receiving groups, but of course there are other names that will fill out the depth chart.

It seems like Cedrick Wilson has cemented himself as the solid WR4 of the bunch, but there is still at least one more spot to be had. One of the contenders for said spot, Ventell Bryant, went down with an apparent injury during Cowboys Night, but thankfully word is out that it wasn’t worst-case scenario.

MRI results show no ACL tear for Ventell Bryant

As the Cowboys were holding their scrimmage, Ventell Bryant went down. There was speculation that this could have been an injury of a serious variety, but on Monday morning NFL Network’s Jane Slater reported that the MRI showed no ACL tear for the wide receiver.

This is certainly good news as an ACL tear would be devastating for any player, let alone one that is in a fight for a roster spot. Whether the team’s WR5 is ultimately Bryant, Noah Brown, or Devin Smith remains to be seen, but thankfully Bryant doesn’t have a serious tear.
