The Saints left Sunday’s game against the Bucs with a victory. Jimmy Graham left with a diagnoses.
The New Orleans tight end reportedly suffered a sprained shoulder after being knocked out of action during the first quarter of the 37-31 win, according to NFL.com. Graham will be further evaluated Monday.
Graham returned to the game after the initial hit and made a 23-yard reception over the middle on his first play back.
The tight end remained on the sidelines after the series and later retreated to the locker room with a member of the training staff for X-rays. He did not return.
Coach Sean Payton would not get into the specifics of the injury after the game.
“I think we were smart and got a chance to take a peek (at the shoulder) and decided we were going to wait,” the coach said.
Graham caught two passes for 36 yards.
