New Saints WR Bryant injured, could be out for season
New Orleans Saints receiver Dez Bryant, who the Saints agreed to a 1-year deal Wednesday, could be out for the season.
According to a report from Tom Pelissero of the NFL Network, Bryant was helped off the field at the practice Friday after suffering what the team fears may be a torn Achilles.
Bryant was seen during the stretching portion of practice, which the media has access to.
According to ESPN’s Adam Shefter, the injury happened on the last play of practice.
The reports came out shortly after Friday’s media availability.
The Saints’ injury report for Sunday’s game, which came out at 3 p.m., listed Bryant as limited in practice with an ankle injury. It also listed him as questionable for Sunday’s game at Cincinnati.
With wide receivers Cameron Meredith and Ted Ginn on injured reserve, the Saints’ only active receivers to catch passes this season are Michael Thomas, Tre’Quan Smith and Austin Carr.
