New Orleans Saints remain optimistic that tight-end Jimmy Graham won't face a prolonged spell on the sidelines after he was forced out of the defeat against the New England Patriots on Sunday.

Graham failed to finish the Saints' first defeat of the season with a foot complaint.

After picking up the injury the tight end returned to the pitch but soon had to pull out, and was spotted with heavy bandaging to his lower left leg afterwards.

ESPN quoting sources close to the Saints say there is optimism that the 26-year-old will be fit to return to action after the bye-week.

To make matters worse for the Saints, Graham, the NFL's leader in receiving yards, finished without a single catch for the first time since 2010.

Saints lost their perfect record in Massachusetts against the Pats, going down 27-30 after a late Kenbrell Thompkins touchdown.
