The MMQB's Albert Breer confirms Dez Bryant suffered a torn Achilles at Friday's practice. He's done for the year. Getting injured this late means Bryant is in danger of missing the start of 2019. It's a potential career ender for Dez after going unsigned until Week 10. The Saints visited with multiple receivers last week and may look to bring in another veteran behind Michael Thomas and Tre'Quan Smith.
Giovani Bernard (knee) is questionable for Week 10 against the Saints. Bernard has practiced all week, so it would be a shock if he is not active, especially since the Bengals have already ruled out seven players. Bernard could see a few more catches than usual with A.J. Green sidelined, but he is nothing more than a handcuff in standard-sized leagues.
