Jimmy Graham's Week 8 status for the New Orleans Saints is uncertain, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. According to Schefter, Graham would have had difficulty suiting up in Week 7 if the Saints hadn't been on a bye due to the foot injury he suffered in Week 6 against the New England Patriots.
The Saints have yet to officially comment on Graham's status. He underwent an MRI last week Monday, but the results of the test were not reported. Last week, ESPN's Ed Werder reported that the Saints did not consider the injury to be serious, though Schefter's latest contradicts that report somewhat.
Graham has been the most vital piece of a high-powered Saints passing attack led by Drew Brees. He is currently No. 6 in the NFL with 593 yards receiving despite the Saints' Week 7 bye and being held without a reception in Week 6. Graham is tied for third in the league with six touchdown receptions.
