NEW ORLEANS -- Saints tight end Jimmy Graham suffered a shoulder injury that knocked him out of Sunday's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Graham originally went back into the game for two series in the first half (making a 23-yard catch in traffic on his first play back).

But after several chats with doctors and trainers between series, he eventually went into the locker room for X-rays and was later ruled out.

The exact nature of the injury is unknown.

Saints center Jonathan Goodwin (knee) and backup linebacker Ramon Humber (ankle) were also ruled out for the remainder of the game after suffering injuries in the first half.

This was more bad news for a 1-3 Saints team that lost safety Jairus Byrd to a season-ending knee injury during a non-contact drill in practice Thursday.
