Jimmy Graham injury: Saints tight end leaves game with shoulder injury

Wesley Hitt

Update: Jimmy Graham has been declared out for the game.

Jimmy Graham has headed to the locker room the game between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and New Orleans Saints with a shoulder injury, suffered during the first quarter of the game. The exact nature of his injury is unknown, but he did return for two drives after initially suffering the injury.

We'll update this story as soon as we know more about the nature of Graham's injury.

The Saints lead 13-0 in the middle of the second quarter, mostly because the Bucs' offense has shot itself in the foot repeatedly. Graham himself has been largely shut down by Mark Barron so far, his only catch coming against zone coverage.The Saints offense really hasn't faltered without Graham.
