New Orleans Saints tight end Jimmy Graham will have an MRI on the foot he injured against the Patriots on Sunday, according to a report from NFL.com.

Graham was held without a catch against the Patriots, which defeated the Saints 30-27.

Graham will be hoping for the best due to the fact he's in a contract season. A severe injury could hurt negotiations to get the kind of money he'd want in a long-term deal. 

Graham has been New Orleans' most reliable receiving target this year, catching 37 passes for 593 yards and six touchdowns. However, the Patriots were the first team this season that was able to contain him in the passing game.
