Dez Bryant didn't want to deal with his injury, so the Cowboys fined him

Dallas is preparing to miss be without him for 3 weeks.

Dez Bryant suffered a gruesome-looking knee injury Sunday night against the Chicago Bears.

While he momentarily exited the contest, he shortly returned to finish the game.

Over the week, when he was supposed to get looked at, Bryant refused to come in for treatments and team meetings, per ESPN, because he feared the knee injury was worse than suspected.

Because of that, the Cowboys fined Bryant, who Dallas is reportedly preparing to miss for three games with a hairline fracture in his tibial plateau.
