Adam Schefter recently reported from a source.

"Injured New Orleans Saints tight end Jimmy Graham‘s status is uncertain for Sunday’s Week 8 game against the Buffalo Bills, a source said Monday.The Saints will test Graham’s foot injury this week and determine whether he is healthy enough to play."

This is honestly nothing new if you’ve been reading our recent reports.

Everyone should know by now that Sean Payton stays very tight-lipped about injuries until Wednesday, so obviously we won’t know anything official until then. Graham has played through injuries previously, and the bye week should have been a great chance for him to rest.

Again, the Bills and Jets are the next two up on the plate for the Saints.

Not having Graham takes away a certain dynamic for the Saints offense. However, Benjamin Watson is definitely a capable backup to fill in should Graham be held out.

On a side note, Buffalo has been playing extremely well against tight ends this season. The best game any tight end has had this season was Carolina’s Greg Olsen, who caught 7 balls for 84 yards, and a score.
