According to multiple reports, New Orleans Saints tight end Jimmy Graham is likely to miss the next 2-3 with a shoulder sprain.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Network first reported Graham's status, and Adam Shefter of ESPN followed up by saying that the 5th-year tight end would miss time.

Graham suffered in the injury in last Sunday's 37-31 overtime win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.


If the reports are accurate, Graham would likely miss next Sunday’s game at Detroit, as well as the October 26 home game against the Packers.

The following game for the Saints is Thursday, October 30, against Carolina, and being that it's a short week, there’s a chance Graham will have to miss that game as well.


The 27-year old Graham leads the team with 34 catches, 376 receiving yards and three touchdowns in 2014.

Over his career, Graham has compiled 335 receptions for 4,239 yards and 44 touchdowns.
