It's been roughly seven months since Dez Bryant's disastrous achilles injury that forced him to miss the entirety of the 2018-2019 season with the New Orleans Saints. But No. 88 doesn't care for the term adversity. Check out this clip that Dez shared on social media of his first full-length strides since the injury:
Let's remember that he suffered the injury just two days after signing with the Saints, making the tear that much more gut-wrenching for the three-time Pro Bowler who was itching for a team to give him a chance.
It appears that Bryant isn't quite ready for sharp cuts but to say that this is great to see would be a colossal understatement.
Whether the former All-Pro pass catcher will have a second attempt at stardom with the Saints or not is still very much up in the air.

But we can't deny the fact that Bryant is making considerable strides and could be ready to gear up come training camp.
Is anything more inspiring than seeing an athlete work their way back from a calamitous injury?
