Saints tight end Jimmy Graham is likely out for the rest of October, writes Michael David Smith of Pro Football Talk (citing Ian Rapoport of NFL.com). Graham, who suffered a shoulder injury in last week’s win over Tampa Bay, is reportedly out for the next 2-3 weeks. Although the Saints are on their bye this week, that 2-3 week timetable means that he will certainly miss the next two games against the Lions and Packers. After the Packers game, the Saints will take on Carolina on a short week, so he may not be available for that divisional matchup.
Graham is putting together a typically excellent season, with 34 receptions, 376 yards, and 3 TDs. He will be sorely missed as the Saints attempt to rebound from their 2-3 start.
