Cowboys coach Jason Garrett confirmed Dez Bryant missed treatments and team meetings on Monday-Wednesday because the receiver feared the knee injury was worse than suspected and did not want to face the decision. "It was the wrong thing to do,"Garrett said. Bryant has a tibial plateau fracture in his right leg. Garrett said Bryant would not practice today but Bryant is moving around better and not ruled out of playing Sunday.
