Well, you couldn't expect Saints tight end Jimmy Graham to post 100 yards and multiple touchdowns every week, right? He came back to earth with a thud on Sunday. And he picked up an injury upon landing. Graham caught none of his six targets against the Patriots, and he missed time during the fourth quarter due to an unspecified left foot injury. Graham returned to the game after getting his foot taped up during the quarter, but he was later seen walking with assistance to the locker room.
Sunday was Graham's first game without a catch since his 2010 rookie year.
There has been no update on Graham's injury from the team, and we may not hear anything for a while since the Saints are now entering their bye week. It's good timing for Graham, who was locked down for much of the day by Patriots cornerback Aqib Talib, who also suffered an injury during the game. Graham came close to hauling in a 34-yard touchdown in the fourth. Here's hoping he'll be ready to go in Week 8.
