However, during practice on Friday, Bryant went down with a what was initially reported as just a "lower leg injury".

Bryant, the Cowboys all-time leader in touchdown receptions, is undergoing a magnetic resonance imaging exam to get a final diagnosis.

"Things was just starting to heat up for me", Bryant said on Twitter a few hours after the injury.

Bryant, a three-time Pro Bowl selection, was optimistic about joining the Saints after experiencing an acrimonious split with the Dallas Cowboys earlier this year.

" Tom Curry is not available this week and he'll be ruled out for the rest of the series as well", said England forwards coach Steve Borthwick.

The 30-year-old signed with the Saints on Wednesday following a workout in New Orleans a day earlier.

Even if he can't get on the field himself, Bryant can offer his Saints teammates support and advice through his long experience in the NFL. "I won't question the man upstairs. this is the ultimate test. thank you everyone for the prayers".

Bryant's first practice came on Thursday and he admitted that he used most of that session to knock some of the rust off.

Of course, Saints players weren't the only ones who reacted to the news.
