Saints' Dez Bryant has torn Achilles tendon: report
Pro Bowl receiver put on IR after suffering season-ending injury in practice
A person familiar with the situation says medical examinations and imaging have confirmed that Saints receiver Dez Bryant has a torn Achilles, ending his season before it had begun.
Not that there was a question but MRI confirmed that Dez Bryant tore his Achilles, per source. An expected 8-month recovery.—@AdamSchefter
The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Saturday because the Saints have not announced details of the veteran receiver's medical exam or updated Friday's injury report.
Things was just starting to heat up for me... I won’t question the man upstairs... this is the ultimate test.. thank you everyone for the prayers—@DezBryant
The 30-year-old Bryant became a free agent in April after eight seasons with Dallas. He'd been looking for a new team until signing with New Orleans on Wednesday.
The six-foot-three Kirkwood is a 24-year-old undrafted rookie out of Temple.
