Saints fans everywhere should be holding their breath today as the best receiver on the team gets his injured knee checked out.

Sure he’s not officially a receiver. But tight end Jimmy Graham is for all practical purposes a receiver who lines up tight to the tackle roughly 40 percent of the time.

Graham per a league source is getting an MRI to determine the extent of the injury suffered during Sunday’s loss to the Patriots. In the final year of his contract Graham has retained the injury risk while the Saints have as they did with Drew Brees two years ago delayed getting a deal done for the kind of compensation Graham wants.
