Saints’ Bryant hurt, calls in­jury the ‘ul­ti­mate test’

The Reporter (Lansdale, PA) - - SPORTS -

METAIRIE, LA. >> Dez Bryant has been in­jured in just his sec­ond prac­tice with New Or­leans Saints and the newly ac­quired re­ceiver has in­di­cated in so­cial me­dia posts that he has had a sig­nif­i­cant set­back.

The team’s in­jury re­port on Fri­day has listed Bryant as ques­tion­able for Sun­day’s game in Cincin­nati with an an­kle in­jury, but a per­son fa­mil­iar with the sit­u­a­tion says the team is still await­ing the results of a doc­tor’s ex­am­i­na­tion of Bryant.

The per­son spoke to The As­so­ci­ated Press Fri­day on con­di­tion of anonymity be­cause the team has not an­nounced any de­tails of Bryant’s med­i­cal exam.

Bryant has in­di­cated on so­cial me­dia that the in­jury will be chal­leng­ing to over­come, writ­ing on his ver­i­fied Twit­ter ac­count, “Things was just start­ing to heat up for me ... I won’t ques­tion the man up­stairs ... this is the ul­ti­mate test.. thank you ev­ery­one for the prayers.”
