Man, this bye week couldn't have come at a better time. Hopefully 2 weeks is enough for Graham to get back to full health.

Graham injured his shoulder in the first half of the Saints win against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday. He was able to play through it briefly, but left the game in obvious pain and went to the locker room with trainers.

Graham was ruled out after undergoing x-rays at half time.

Re: Sprained shoulder for Jimmy Graham

You could clearly tell he wasn't allright after that first hit. Hope he gets well soon and are ready to roll after the bye.

Yeah but we call plays to shove it to him three times in a row, and he drops all three. Again, I question play call and don't understand why we don't spread the ball around. After Graham got hurt, suddenly we start spreading the ball around the field.

In the replay I saw, the defender clearly lowers his helmet and spears Graham in the shoulder.

Re: Sprained shoulder for Jimmy Graham

To me the offense looked a lot more unpredictable after Graham left the game. The play of Kenny Stills has been a MAJOR disappointment to me.

Completely agree, brees forces it to Graham on 3rd downs and he's always ends up dropping them

Kenny stills looked scared out their yesterday, like he knew he was going to get hit so he didn't want to catch the pass.

Both Kenny's are a major disappointment this season, I hope its only a sophomore slump.

Graham learned a painful lesson that he can't bulldose a LB the same way he has been doing to all the DB's this season.

I somewhat noticed that too. When they replayed one of his drops, it appears as if he was bracing for the blow instead of making the catch.

We've seen all of our WR's do that though. From Colston to Jimmy to Joe Horn...

The thing he has to learn is to make the catch while bracing for the shot. He's still young and I think he'll learn, especially after the team calls him out on it in film review.
