Watch: Dez Bryant returns to workouts after torn Achilles
Dez Bryant’s road to recovery has progressed to running routes and catching passes.
Last November, Bryant signed a one-year deal with New Orleans Saints. Less than a week later, he tore his Achilles tendon during practice.
Nearly six months later, Bryant has returned to the practice field. On Monday, the three-time Pro Bowl wide receiver shared two videos of himself running for what he called the “first time in a long time.”
As we have seen in the past, Achilles injuries can have a devastating impact on an athlete’s explosiveness. While the recovery from a torn Achilles is generally a long road, Bryant looks to be moving about as well as can be expected at this point in the process.
