The New Orleans Saints will be without two key receiving threats on Sunday against the Broncos.
The New Orleans Saints will be without two key players in Sunday's game against the Denver Broncos, as tight end Jimmy Graham and receiver Joseph Morgan won't travel with the team for the crucial game on NBC.
Graham returned to practice yet had limited participation with the team this week, missing last week's 35-28 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with an ankle injury. In five games, Graham has 25 receptions for 252 yards and three touchdowns and had become one of Drew Brees' go-to targets this season.
Receiver Joseph Morgan, in his second season with the Saints, has just three receptions on the season but has been incredibly effective when given the chance. The Saints' speedy threat scored on a 48-yard touchdown pass against the Buccaneers, but was forced to go to the hospital because of chest injury sustained in the win. Like Graham, Morgan had limited participation in practice this week.
The Saints and Broncos take the field at Mile High on Sunday with kickoff set for 6:20 p.m. MT.
