New Orleans Saints fear Dez Bryant tore Achilles tendon in practice

Shannon Sharpe Equates Saints Signing Dez Bryant To This Patriots Move

The Saints could activate undrafted rookie receiver Keith Kirkwood from their practice squad for added depth Sunday.

Dez Bryant was helped off the Saints practice field Friday afternoon with an injury the team fears is a torn Achilles tendon, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports.

One of those "baby goats", as Bryant named the young stars on the team is Brees's favorite target. The three-time Pro Bowler was released in April when he was due to earn $12.5 million. Payton said the wideout is expected to make a "full recovery". "Wanting to play football, thinking about playing football". "They're my family", Bryant said. He reportedly turned down at least one multiyear contract offer during the offseason.

Thomas, who is New Orleans' leading receiver, said he has been following Bryant's career.

Last season was Bryant's best since he caught 88 passes for 1,320 yards and 16 TDs in 2014, which at the time was his third consecutive season with at least 1,200 yards receiving.

On Friday afternoon, 31-year-old Mohamed Khalif pulled up in his four-wheel-drive, which caught fire. Police said the scene had been cordoned off, and it was being "made safe" by a bomb response unit.

Last season, Bryant hauled in 69 passes for 838 yards and six touchdowns.

Bryant rejected the notion Thursday that he would be a locker room chemistry concern.

"I'm going to always be me", Bryant said. You know I still love those guys.

Bryant has indicated on social media that the injury will be challenging to overcome, writing on his verified Twitter account, "Things was just starting to heat up for me ..." I've always been a good guy, you can ask my teammates.
