Sounds to me it was a Spinosaur, not a tyrannosaur.  Tyrannosaurs do not have 
sails on their backs
(though I could be proven wrong at any moment). It really all depends on the 
digits on the front legs.
Tyrannosaurs have been known to only have two but if this dinosaur had three 
than it really was of the
Carnosaur family (same family that Allosaurus, Dilophosaurus and Ceratosaurs 
belongs to).
