Dez Bryant reacts after reportedly suffering season-ending injury in Saints practiceNovember 10, 2018
The Saints wide receiver, who reportedly tore his Achilles tendon while running a routine route during practice, seemingly confirmed the bad news on Twitter.
The injury came during Bryant’s second practice with the Saints and although he had been with the team for just two days, he clearly made an impact, because multiple Saints players were tweeting their well-wishes after the injury happened.
Two other Saints players, linebackers Alex Anzalone and Criag Robertson, sent out prayers.
Several other plays who have never played with Bryant also sent out tweets.
If Bryant’s injury is officially diagnosed as a torn Achilles, that means we definitely won’t see him on the field until the 2019 season. The injury came just days after Bryant signed a one-year contract with New Orleans worth up to $1.1 million. Before signing with the Saints, Bryant had been a free agent since being released by the Cowboys in April
