Saints fear Achilles tear for Bryant

"Things was just starting to heat up for me".

The Saints wide receiver, who reportedly tore his Achilles tendon while running a routine route during practice, seemingly confirmed the bad news on Twitter.

Bryant had just signed a one-year deal with the Saints this week after spending the past seven months as a free agent.

Bryant wasn't expected to play this Sunday, but the Pro Bowl wideout was brought in to provide relief opposite of Michael Thomas.

He is getting an MRI and the club is awaiting more information.

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.

Bryant said multiple times during the offseason that he wanted to play for a contender, which made New Orleans an easy choice for him.

The New Orleans Saints chapter of Dez Bryant's career could very well be over before it even had the chance to begin. He led the league in receiving TDs in 2014.

Bryant was originally planning to make his Saints debut in Week 11 against the Philadelphia Eagles, but it's up in the air whether he will play at all this season.
