Dez Bryant Saints

Just two days after signing with the New Orleans Saints, Bryant was helped off the field with what is feared to be a torn Achilles tendon according to Tom Pelissero of NFL Network.

With wide receivers Cameron Meredith and Ted Ginn on injured reserve, the Saints' only active receivers to catch passes this season are Michael Thomas, Tre'Quan Smith and Austin Carr.

However, his professional reputation has been marred at times by public confrontations with coaches and teammates during games and practices.

The win helped Australia end its 7-match losing streak, which was their longest in one-day worldwide cricket. The win set up a series-deciding third match in Hobart on Sunday.

Bryant, 30, worked out for the team and quickly agreed to a deal after being a free agent since April.

Bryant said Thursday that he had been working out and getting his body and mind right all season - but he also acknowledged that he was "thinking about preparing for the next year" before he got the call from Payton to come audition in New Orleans. He earned First-Team All-Pro honors in 2014 when he caught a career-best 16 touchdowns.

Fans can get unprecedented access to every play, of every game, all year long, including the playoffs and Super Bowl with NFL Game Pass. "I asked him a lot of questions, and it's just cool to play with a guy like that". Plus, New Orleans just took down the Rams. We felt like he did a number of things that we liked in the workout. "I'm not a bad guy. They're my family", Bryant said. He will make his Saints debut on Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals. "I accepted that and moved on".
