(NFL) Bryantwith the Saints after spending the past seven months as a free agent. Bryant suffered an injury at practice on Friday and the team is fearful that he has torn his Achilles tendon, which would cause him to miss the rest of the season. Bryant is set for an MRI, and the Saints should know the full extent of the injury by the end of day on Friday.
Bryant suffered the injury while coming out of a routine route.
If Bryant did tear his Achilles, it’s a huge devastation for the receiver who was participating in just his second practice with the Saints. Bryant’s first practice came on Thursday, and he admitted that he used most of that session to knock some of the rust off.
“It was good,” Bryant said after his first practice. “Just knocking a little bit of the rust off, but it was good.”
If Bryant’s injury is officially diagnosed as a torn Achilles, that means he’ll miss the Saints’ final eight games of the season, including a Week 13 game where he would have had a shot at getting revenge on the Cowboys.
