Per Schefter, the Saints could turn to Brandon Marshall, who also worked out for the team along with Bryant recently.

NFL Network's Jane Slater reports, "Sources informed me Dez Bryant was coming out of a routine route when it happened". The injury came just days after Bryant signed a one-year contract with New Orleans worth up to $1.1 million. The surging Saints have won seven straight and last Sunday knocked off the previously unbeaten Los Angeles Rams.

Bryant, who has been unemployed since being cut by the Cowboys April 13, joined the Saints on Wednesday after agreeing to a one-year, $600,000 deal. He led the league in receiving TDs in 2014. And the Saints reportedly fear he could actually be done for the year with a torn Achilles. Meredith was scheduled to have an arthroscopic cleanup performed on the same knee that required reconstructive surgery in 2017 and sidelined him all of that season.
