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.

The hype was real surrounding Bryant after his decision to sign with the Saints.

Bryant, 30, tweeted Friday after the injury occurred that, "Things was just starting to heat up for me ..." The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Saturday because the Saints have not announced details of the veteran receiver's injury. "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.




NFL players across the league wished Bryant well on social media.

The Saints could activate undrafted rookie receiver Keith Kirkwood from their practice squad for added depth Sunday.

Bryant, in his eight years in Dallas, caught 531 balls for 7,459 yards and 73 touchdowns. Meredith was scheduled to have an arthroscopic cleanup performed on the same knee that required reconstructive surgery in 2017 and sidelined him all of that season.
