In a season of disappointment, even last night's win for the New Orleans Saints came with some bad news. Tight end Jimmy Graham injured his ankle in the first quarter of the game and left the stadium in a walking boot.
His status going forward is up in the air, according to NOLA.com.
Graham only had one catch for 4 yards against the Chargers. Graham also left the Saints locker room with a walking boot on his right foot. All interim coach Aaron Kromer said about Graham's injury after the game was, "We'll see."
He did play a limited number of snaps in the second half, after not playing any in the first half following his injury.
Luckily for the Saints, they hit their bye week in Week 6, meaning that Graham will have at least two weeks to recover.
The Saints will return from their bye week in Week 7 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
