But for the Saints, a maddening game of "what might have been" is the order of the day.
The Saints signed Dez Bryant earlier this week to bolster their receiving corps with a capable veteran, but Bryant's season may have ended Friday before it ever truly began in New Orleans. Unfortunately, the top team in the NFC South just received horrendous news surrounding its newest acquisition.
Bryant was not expected to play this Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals as coach Sean Payton wanted to him to get in better shape by dropping five pounds and also have more time to get a grasp of the offense.
Of course, Saints players weren't the only ones who reacted to the news.
Now, it appears his season could be over before he even made his debut. He was carted off the practice field and taken to get an MRI.

Whitaker, who was serving as chief of staff for Sessions, was not serving a post that required Senate confirmation. The mayor, who has gotten into it with the president on Twitter , added: "It is a shocking abuse of power".
If Bryant did tear his Achilles, it's a devastating blow for the receiver who was participating in just his second practice with the Saints, CBS Sports reports.
Expect everyone in the Big Easy to wait for confirmation on the injury.
This is just very bad for both the Saints and Bryant.
