Griffin caught three of three targets for 30 yards during Sunday's 36-27 win over Tampa Bay. Griffin hadn't even been targeted with a pass all season before catching three of them Sunday. However, it's possible the Air Force product could go the rest of the season without matching this production.
Griffin (undisclosed) is expected to return to the Saints' practice field Thursday, Amie Just of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports. Griffin sat out of Monday's exhibition game against the Jaguars due to an undisclosed injury. His quick return to practice is a positive, as he is competing for a depth tight end role with the team. The 27-year-old has primarily been a practice squad player for New Orleans during his four-year career.
Griffin (undisclosed) won't play in Monday's preseason game against the Jaguars, Nick Underhill of NewOrleans.Football reports. Griffin apparently got "banged up" in the Saints' last practice. He's in a battle for a roster spot as a depth tight end, so Griffin can ill afford to miss significant time due to this injury.
Griffin signed a reserve/future contract with the Saints on Monday, per the NFL's official transaction log. Griffin made his first NFL appearance since 2017 when he was called up for four games this year. The Air Force product totaled 91 targetless snaps on offense in that stretch. The 26-year-old will aim to secure a depth role in 2021.
