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".

New Orleans Saints receiver Dez Bryant is being evaluated for a possible torn Achilles tendon, according to reports.

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

The president said he had not decided if Acosta's pass would be reinstated and he suggested there "could be others" who lose their credentials.

Per Schefter, the Saints could turn to Brandon Marshall, who also worked out for the team along with Bryant recently. "I won't question the man upstairs. this is the ultimate test. thank you everyone for the prayers". An Achilles injury would cause him to miss the rest of the year.

On the Saints' end, the team was in some serious need of wide receiver depth when they added Bryant and now they're back at square one.

The three-time Pro Bowl receiver hasn't played in an National Football League game since Week 17 of last season.

"I hope we don't lose on Sunday or not this derby or the following derby". "I didn't offend anyone at the end", he said . Asked if he would have reacted like Mourinho, Allegri replied: "No, I leave the pitch immediately to avoid reacting".

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.

It's a brutal blow for Bryant, who waited to find the right fit this season after being released by the Dallas Cowboys before the year.
