Bryant has torn Achilles

The Saratogian (Saratoga, NY) - - SPORTS -

NEW OR­LEANS (AP) >> A per­son fa­mil­iar with the sit­u­a­tion says med­i­cal ex­am­i­na­tions and imag­ing have con­firmed that Saints re­ceiver Dez Bryant has a torn Achilles, end­ing his sea­son be­fore it had be­gun.

The per­son spoke to The As­so­ci­ated Press on con­di­tion of anonymity Satur­day be­cause the Saints have not an­nounced de­tails of the vet­eran re­ceiver’s med­i­cal exam or up­dated Fri­day’s in­jury re­port. Bryant was listed as ques­tion­able for Sun­day’s game in Cincin­nati with an an­kle in­jury. But the re­ceiver made it clear on so­cial me­dia that he’d had a sig­nif­i­cant set­back, call­ing his path to re­cov­ery the “ul­ti­mate test.”

Bryant be­came a free agent in April af­ter eight sea­sons with Dal­las. He’d been look­ing for a new team un­til sign­ing with New Or­leans on Wed­nes­day. He was in­jured dur­ing just his sec­ond prac­tice.
