The New Orleans Saints placed newly-signed wide receiver Dez Bryant on injured reserve after he suffered an Achilles injury during Friday’s practice.

Rookie wide receiver Keith Kirkwood was promoted from the practice squad to the 53-man roster.

Bryant signed a one-year contract with the Saints earlier this week in efforts to bolster a thin position which includes Ted Ginn, Jr. and Cam Meredith already on IR.
