Dallas Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones had no update on the status of wide receiver Dez Bryant while speaking on 105.3 The Fan in Dallas. Jones said he was not sure if Bryant had an MRI on his knee but he could have one today. Jones said left guard La'el Collins is "less likely" to have surgery on his big toe but did not have a timetable for a return. Jones said it will be a pain tolerance issue.
