METAIRIE, La. - Dez Bryant said he'll leave it up to Sean Payton whether he plays on Sunday. Bryant then left the teams facilities expecting to get a high-demand within the free agency market.

METAIRIE, La. - Just two days after Dez Bryant finally returned to the National Football League, it appears that his 2018 season is over.

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.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that if the news regarding Bryant is as bad as what the Saints fear, they could turn to veteran wideout Brandon Marshall, who they worked out last week in addition to Bryant and ex-Baltimroe Ravens receiver Kamar Aiken.

During the offseason, Bryant was suddenly blindsided by the Cowboys when they chose to release him.

"He's definitely one of those guys you have to watch if you're playing the receiver position", Thomas said. "I asked him a lot of questions, and it's just cool to play with a guy like that".

Dez Bryant: I'm going to always be me. "You can ask my teammates - my ex-teammates - how I am". The Saints take on the Bengals in Week 10, who will be without A.J. Green for at least their next two games.

Receiver Ted Ginn Jr. also is on injured reserve and can not come back until the final few weeks of the regular season, if he's ready by then. Bryant came into the workout "a little heavy".

Bryant said he does not feel like he has something to prove after the way things ended in Dallas.

"It was good", Bryant said of his first practice.

Soon after, Bryant tweeted several times that he holds no bitterness or anger toward the Cowboys.
