Bryant’s re­turn al­ready over?

Los Angeles Times - - NFL - Wire re­ports

Dez Bryant’s stint with the New Or­leans Saints might be over be­fore it starts, as the team fears he tore his Achilles ten­don on the last play of prac­tice Fri­day, ac­cord­ing to re­ports.

Bryant, who had been un­em­ployed since be­ing cut by Dal­las on April 13, joined the Saints on Wed­nes­day af­ter agree­ing to a one-year, $600,000 deal.

“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,” tweeted Bryant, who was not only ex­cited to join a Su­per Bowl con­tender but also look­ing for­ward to a home­com­ing on Nov. 29 when the Saints play the Cow­boys at AT&T Sta­dium.

Flacco hurt­ing?

Bal­ti­more quar­ter­back Joe Flacco was un­der­go­ing test­ing on a hip in­jury and could miss the Ravens’ next game Nov. 18 against Cincin­nati, ac­cord­ing to re­ports.

Flacco, who has made 41 straight starts, hurt the hip on the first play last week­end and played through it. If he’s un­able to go, rookie La­mar Jack­son could get his first start, or vet­eran Robert Grif­fin III could step in. Flacco’s thrown for 12 touch­downs and six in­ter­cep­tions with an 84.2 quar­ter­back rat­ing for the Ravens, who’ve lost three straight.


Jack­sonville run­ning back Leonard Four­nette, who missed the last four games, is “com­pletely healthy” for Sun­day’s game at In­di­anapo­lis, coach Doug Mar­rone said . ... Kansas City linebacker Justin Hous­ton and safety Daniel Sorensen are ex­pected to play Sun­day against Ari­zona . ... Dal­las ruled out line­men Taco Charl­ton (shoul­der) and David Irv­ing (an­kle) and lineback­ers Sean Lee (ham­string) and Joe Thomas (foot) for Sun­day against Philadel­phia . ... Detroit will be with­out stand­out corner­back Dar­ius Slay (knee) and guard T.J. Lang (neck) Sun­day at Chicago . ... Buf­falo’s Derek An­der­son (con­cus­sion) is out, and coach Sean McDer­mott hasn’t in­di­cated if rookie Josh Allen will re­turn from in­jury to start at quar­ter­back over Nathan Peter­man or Matt Barkley.
