NFL Network reported the Saints feared Bryant suffered a torn Achilles tendon that would prevent him taking the field for them this season.

Bryant agreed to a one-year, $600,000 contract on Wednesday and was participating in his second practice when he was injured.

"Things was just starting to heat up for me", he tweeted. "I won't question the man upstairs. this is the ultimate test. thank you everyone for the prayers".

Per Schefter, the Saints could turn to Brandon Marshall, who also worked out for the team along with Bryant recently.

I'm training for a certain type of mission. "When it's time for fighting and I'm risking my life, I turn into the Bronze Bomber". Fury tests the raw power of the 6-foot-7 Wilder against the unmatched size and mobility of the 6-foot-9 Fury.

The three-time Pro Bowl receiver hasn't played in an National Football League game since Week 17 of last season. He was unable to land a new gig prior to the season or during the first half of the campaign.

The team's injury report listed Bryant as questionable for Sunday's game in Cincinnati with an ankle injury, but a person familiar with the situation said the team is still awaiting the results of a doctor's examination of Bryant. New Orleans now ranks second in the National Football League in points per game with 34.9, trailing only the Kansas City Chiefs who are averaging 36.3.

From 2012-14, Dez was a easily a top 5 receiver in the league, an unparalleled red zone weapon and a terrific vertical threat.
