Dez Bryant's tragic Achilles injury has taken over social media. Rightfully so, as the receiver was finally about to step foot onto a football field. Bryant tore his Achilles tendon just two days after being signed by the Saints.
He was excited to play for New Orleans
Things was just starting to heat up for me... I won’t question the man upstairs... this is the ultimate test.. thank you everyone for the prayers— Dez Bryant (@DezBryant) November 9, 2018
Firstly, Bryant reacted to the injury. He seems to be aware that his career may be over. But, it is the ultimate test. If he can keep his confidence, who knows what can happen.
Jets' safety Jamal Adams also responded.
We're hurting too, Jamal.
Adam Schefter leaked a quote from an anonymous head coach.
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.”— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) November 9, 2018
It is a solid point. You can be in shape, but it is hard to stay in 'football shape', especially a year removed from the game.
Then the funny-but-cruel Twitter stepped in. This is what the platform is known for, after all.

Just like that, Bryant is ALREADY on his way back home.
The only X Dez Bryant threw up with the Saints is the X-Ray— NFL Memes (@NFL_Memes) November 9, 2018
That's cold. I don't even have a quip for that one.
And for my favorite of the day.

No one is safe from the brutality of Twitter. It's all in fun jest, though.
