I'm just glad I didn't see that mess. I'd hate to have to try to get it out of my mind. We should not be losing this kind of game...at the end of the season...on our way to the playoffs...

The bigger concern is not the loss, but the injuries. Jenkins, Ivory and Graham better all heal up in a huge hurry along with Pierre & David Thomas, Shockey, Colston, Hargrove and Waters...

I know Graham slightly sprained a knee, couldn't have been to bad. He was trying to walk it off and get back in today. Payton was probably just saving him for next week.

Have no idea what happened to Jenkins, Billick said something about a shoulder and that's all I ever heard.

Ivory and his hamstrings, that's been his story ever since he was in college. I don't know if he doesn't properly stretch or what, but if he can't make it through full games I don't see him on the roster next year.

Graham appeared to have come down wrong after his chest butt celebration following his touchdown.

Jenkins grabbed his knee following that tackle at the sideline.

Ivory did something to the foot. Missed what happened there.

I thought Graham was hurt before he caught the TD. He was limping on the play before it, but got back in and made the catch.

Jenkins was definitely missed out there.

Ivory? Drives me crazy when he goes out.

Time to put the delicate china away....

Yup. Graham initially hurt it two plays earlier, but when he came down from the chest, or shoulder bump, you can see him stumble and look down.

Ivory plays alot like Shockey. Lots of heart and punishes defenses, but puts a toll on his body. He can be coached out of that. But man it does seem like he gets hurt every time he touches the ball.

Graham's TD gave the Saints their only lead at 7-3 in the first quarter, but he left favoring his left ankle and did not return to a Saints squad that came in with only two tight ends in uniform; Jeremy Shockey (groin) and David Thomas (right knee) were inactive.

The Saints also played most of the game without starting free safety Malcolm Jenkins and leading rusher Chris Ivory. Jenkins hurt his right knee on the first defensive series while tackling Blount along the sideline. Ivory had a left foot injury in the first half.

The MJ Knee Injury looked like it was hit by the Runners Knee. Probably a Bruise...hopefully
