Saints fear Achilles tear for Bryant

Dez Bryant Saints

Dez Bryant Saints

He will make his Saints debut on Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals. He practiced for the first time Thursday.

In fact, Sharpe on Thursday equated Bryant joining the Saints to the New England Patriots signing James Harrison last season after the veteran linebacker was released by the Pittsburgh Steelers. "I asked him a lot of questions, and it's just cool to play with a guy like that".

The Saints could activate undrafted rookie receiver Keith Kirkwood from their practice squad for added depth Sunday. New Orleans now ranks second in the National Football League in points per game with 34.9, trailing only the Kansas City Chiefs who are averaging 36.3. "They're my family", Bryant said. He caught just 69 passes for 838 yards and six touchdowns in a full 16-game season in 2017. He ranked first or second for the Owls as a senior in every receiving category (logging 45 receptions for 671 yards and seven touchdowns) and performing well at his pro day, timing a 4.45-second 40-yard dash at 6 feet 2 and 221 pounds. The Cowboys were ultimately ready to move on from what executive vice president Stephen Jones described as a "fiery" personality that could sometimes be a "distraction".

When asked Thursday if he thinks he will assimilate in a new locker room, Bryant said, "Of course".

Latest injury updates for Patriots heading into game vs. Titans
New England has defeated the Chicago Bears, Houston Texans, and Kansas City Chiefs, who all lead their respective divisions. Last season, the Titans suffered a rout at the hands of Tom Brady and the Patriots in the Divisional Round of the playoffs.

So, what number is Bryant going with?

And any doubts about Bryant fitting into the locker room were addressed as well. I've always been a good guy, you can ask my teammates. I'm not a bad guy.

Bryant signed a prorated contract that will pay him $600,000.

The signing sets the stage for Bryant to play in Dallas when the Saints visit the Cowboys for a Thursday night game on November 29.
