Dez Bryant injury: WR suffers apparent Achilles tear at practice

Dez Bryant injury: WR suffers apparent Achilles tear at practice

According to National Football League reporter Tom Pelissero, Bryant was helped off the field at Saints practice on Friday and is undergoing an MRI to determine the extent of his injury.

Despite the fact that he suffered a potential season-ending injury on Friday, Dez Bryant still found some time to send out a tweet.

The New Orleans Saints learned Friday that life comes at you fast, with wide receiver Dez Bryant leaving practice with what's feared to be a torn Achilles tendon after signing with the team on Thursday.

The team's injury report listed Bryant as questionable for Sunday's game in Cincinnati with an ankle injury, but a person familiar with the situation said the team is still awaiting the results of a doctor's examination of Bryant. An Achilles injury would cause him to miss the rest of the year.

Dez Bryant works out for Saints
The Saints haven't gotten enough production from their receivers despite posting a top flight offense week-in, week-out. New Orleans has plenty of options in the pass game including running back Alvin Kamara and tight end Ben Watson.

Bryant joined the Saints this week after a long stint as a free agent.

Marshall was one of two receivers the Saints worked out earlier in the week, along with Bryant.

The three-time Pro Bowl receiver hasn't played in an National Football League game since Week 17 of last season. He led the league in receiving TDs in 2014.

It's a brutal blow for Bryant, who waited to find the right fit this season after being released by the Dallas Cowboys before the year.
