Just a couple of days after signing with the New Orleans Saints, wide receiver Dez Bryant reportedly is feared to have suffered an Achilles injury, which would be a season-ending deal. This is very unfortunate for a guy who was trying to resurrect his career, playing for a contending team.
Once this news broke, Twitter of course exploded with commentary and well wishes.
The Twitter Takes are aflame with the @DezBryant news — his potential Achilles injury is either a direct result of his not being active for so long or the exact reason why @LeVeonBell has been holding out.
How about this one — it’s an awful shame.

– Saints sign Dez Bryant earlier this week
– Media and fans are excited
– Bryant appears to have ruptured his Achilles tendon at practice today.
Saints are tempting Fate and Fate is having none of it.

Bad day and injury for Saints WR Dez Bryant, whom team fears tore his Achilles. As one NFL HC just texted: “If that is in fact the case, not shocked. Out that long. Does not matter what you do while away from REAL FB. Can’t duplicate it.”
