New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton is "undecided" on wide receiver Dez Bryant's status for Sunday's game against the Cincinnati Bengals, the team announced Friday.

With only two full days of practice with his new team, Bryant needs time to learn the offense and build chemistry with his teammates, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. The Saints reportedly want Bryant to lose at least five pounds to help him get back into shape.

Bryant has yet to play this season after a long free agency since the Dallas Cowboys released him in April. The three-time Pro Bowler agreed to a one-year contract with the Saints Wednesday.

If he misses Sunday's game against the Bengals, Bryant could return for New Orleans' game against the Philadelphia Eagles on Nov. 18. New Orleans will face Bryant's former team on Nov. 29 in Dallas.
