The New Orleans Saints will be without star tight end Jimmy Graham for 2-3 weeks. The team is currently on a bye.

The team were not as concern about the star when the week began. Now, he’s out against the Detroit Lions next week and the Green Bay Packers the week after.

Graham is dealing with an sprained shoulder. Ben Watson, Josh Hill, and Tom Crabtree are expected to fill in at tight end.

Three days ago, Saints head coach Sean Payton said that Graham was “doing fine.” And at the beginning of the week, it was reported that his injury was not serious.

“The bye comes at a perfect time for him,” Payton said on Friday.

The 27-year-old has played in five games this season. He has 34 receptions for 376 yards, including one 100+ yard reception game. He also has three touchdowns.
