Dez Bryant injury: WR suffers apparent Achilles tear at practice

10 November 2018

NFL Network's Jane Slater reports, "Sources informed me Dez Bryant was coming out of a routine route when it happened".

Dez Bryant's tenure with the Saints may have been short-lived. "I won't question the man upstairs. this is the ultimate test. thank you everyone for the prayers".

Bryant had just signed a one-year deal with the Saints this week after spending the past seven months as a free agent.

Even if he can't get on the field himself, Bryant can offer his Saints teammates support and advice through his long experience in the NFL. After his first practice on Thursday, he expressed an eagerness to play with National Football League all-time passer Drew Brees, and help a club that looks like a Super Bowl contender. Fresh off a famous win over the previously undefeated Los Angeles Rams, Drew Brees and Co. were widely backed to hit a new gear and boss the NFC all the way to paydirt. And the Saints reportedly fear he could actually be done for the year with a torn Achilles.

The Saints signing Bryant meant he was likely to play against his former team on November 29.

Bryant was signed as the Saints placed receiver Cameron Meredith on injured reserve.
