Saints' Dez Bryant: Achilles tear confirmed
Bryant is expected to miss the next 8-to-12 months after an MRI confirmed Saturday that he suffered a torn Achilles' tendon, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
The injury occurred during the final play of practice Friday, just two days after the wide receiver signed a contract with the Saints. The 30-year-old will now begin a rigorous rehab process, with the outlined timetable putting him on track to be available as early as the start of training camp in 2019. The Saints promoted Keith Kirkwood to the active roster to provide more depth at wideout, but he's unlikely to see much volume in the passing game during his time with the team. Instead, Michael Thomas and Tre'Quan Smith should see most of the looks at receiver, with backs Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram and tight end Benjamin Watson also getting their fair share of targets.
