Jimmy Graham may have more than just the bye week off. According to reports, the New Orleans Saints' all-pro tight end will miss an additional two to three weeks after the bye with a shoulder sprain.

This news comes as a bit of a surprise after head coach Sean Payton said earlier this week that Graham was "doing fine" and noted that the bye came at a perfect time.

Although this news should not come as a big shock as the Saints signed tight end Tom Crabtree earlier this week as insurance in case Graham missed time.

For the season, Graham has 34 receptions for 376 yards and three touchdowns.

Next week the Saints travel to take on the Detroit Lions. Kick-off next Sunday is at noon and you can hear all the action on 97.3 The Dawg starting with the pre game at 10am.
