Saints fear new WR Bryant lost to Achilles tear

The Tribune (SLO) - - Sports -

Two days af­ter Dez Bryant signed with New Or­leans, the Saints be­lieve the for­mer Dal­las wide re­ceiver has suf­fered a torn Achilles ten­don.

Bryant, re­leased by the Cowboys in April with two years left on his five-year con­tract but un­signed un­til Wed­nes­day, was hurt in prac­tice Fri­day and the club fears the likely sea­son-end­ing in­jury, a source told the NFL Net­work’s Ian Rapoport and Tom Pelis­sero.

An MRI was sched­uled to con­firm the ini­tial di­ag­no­sis.

Safety rank­ings: Min­nesota’s Har­ri­son Smith was voted the top safety in the league by a panel of 10 foot­ball writ­ers, gar­ner­ing eight first-place votes to out­dis­tance the New York Gi­ants’ Lan­don Collins.
