"The assignment, he'll know. He's been practicing in the meetings. It's just making sure he's 100 percent. But I anticipate that happening this week. I anticipate him being able to work this week and get some playing time," said Sean Payton.

The University of Texas-San Antonio product missed most of camp with a lingering groin injury.
