Bryant, a three-time Pro Bowl selection, was optimistic about joining the Saints after experiencing an acrimonious split with the Dallas Cowboys earlier this year. Unfortunately, the top team in the NFC South just received horrendous news surrounding its newest acquisition.
In Bryant's second practice with the Saints, the 30-year-old went down on the final play of practice with team believes could be a torn Achilles, according to the NFL Network.
Of course, Saints players weren't the only ones who reacted to the news.
Dez Bryant spent training camp, preseason and more than half of the National Football League regular season waiting for a team to give him a shot to prove himself. "He's getting an MRI now". Per Schefter, the Saints could turn to Brandon Marshall, who also worked out for the team along with Bryant recently.
This is just bad for both the Saints and Bryant.
Even though this is devastating for the veteran wide receiver, New Orleans still has Michael Thomas and Alvin Kamara to shoulder the load on offense.
