It looks like disaster has struck for Dez Bryant.
The Saints wide receiver, who reportedly tore his Achilles tendon while running a routine route during practice, seemingly confirmed the bad news on Twitter.
That said, Payton said he hasn't seen Bryant practice yet and "we'll see" if Bryant plays this weekend after that changes. "I won't question the man upstairs. this is the ultimate test. thank you everyone for the prayers". The injury came just days after Bryant signed a one-year contract with New Orleans worth up to $1.1 million. Fresh off a famous win over the previously undefeated Los Angeles Rams, Drew Brees and Co. were widely backed to hit a new gear and boss the NFC all the way to paydirt.
Oil tanker rams into Norwegian frigate, leaving eight injured
Its crew of 137 had been evacuated, rescue leader Ben Vikoeren at the Joint Rescue Coordination Centre for southern Norway said. The frigate is believed to be the KNM Helge Ingstad , which took part in NATO's massive Trident Juncture 2018 wargames.
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.
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. He led the league in receiving TDs in 2014.
Bryant was signed as the Saints placed receiver Cameron Meredith on injured reserve.
