Dez Bryant injury: WR suffers apparent Achilles tear at practice

The Saints fear their new receiver could be dealing with a torn achilles and is getting an MRI exam, according to an NFL Network report.

This is a potential huge disappointment for Bryant who was not only excited to join a possible Super Bowl team but looking forward to a homecoming on November 29 when the Saints played the Cowboys at AT&T Stadium.

According to National Football League reporter Tom Pelissero, Bryant was helped off the field at Saints practice on Friday and is undergoing an MRI to determine the extent of his injury.

Bryant's first practice came on Thursday and he admitted that he used most of that session to knock some of the rust off.

But this leaves the Saints with their own problems to sort out - like starting over with the process that led to signing Bryant in the first place.

Bryant had just signed a one-year deal with the Saints this week after spending the past seven months as a free agent.

He turned down a three-year, $21 million offer from Baltimore Ravens in April and only received interest from Cleveland Browns in the preseason before finally latching on with the Saints to improve their depth for a possible post-season run.

Bryant was selected in the 1st round of the 2010 NFL Draft by the Dallas Cowboys and was selected to go to the Pro Bowl 3 different times.

This is a developing story.
