NFL IN BRIEF Saints place Bryant on IR

The Beaufort Gazette (Sunday) - - Sports - — WIRE SER­VICES

Dez Bryant’s sea­son is over be­fore it had even be­gun. The New Or­leans Saints placed the newly ac­quired wide re­ceiver on in­jured re­serve Satur­day, pro­mot­ing re­ceiver Keith Kirk­wood from the prac­tice squad to the ac­tive ros­ter be­fore Sun­day’s game at Cincin­nati.

Bryant was in­jured dur­ing his sec­ond prac­tice with New Or­leans on Fri­day.

A per­son fa­mil­iar with the sit­u­a­tion says Bryant


Pa­tri­ots: Star tight end Rob Gronkowski will be side­lined for the third time in four games when the Pa­tri­ots take on Ten­nessee on Sun­day, NFL Net­work’s Ian Rapoport re­ported. Gronkowski was lim­ited in prac­tice all week while con­tin­u­ing to deal with lin­ger­ing back and an­kle in­juries.

Bills: The Bills ruled out rookie Josh Allen and an­nounced that Matt Barkley is ex­pected to start against the Jets. Barkley gets the nod in­stead of turnover-prone Nathan Peter­man de­spite hav­ing just two weeks of prac­tice ex­pe­ri­ence in Buf­falo. Gi­ants: Of­fen­sive line­man Pa­trick Omameh, an off­sea­son acquisition who started the first six games of the sea­son at right guard, was waived. That cleared the way to pro­mote re­turn man Quadree Hen­der­son from the prac­tice squad, four days af­ter he was waived to free up a ros­ter spot for an­other player.

Jets: The Jets signed quar­ter­back Davis Webb from the prac­tice squad and placed tight end Neal Ster­ling on sea­son-end­ing in­jured re­serve.
