Saints | Jimmy Graham questionable

Wed, 17 Oct 2012 14:34:52 -0700

New Orleans Saints TE Jimmy Graham (ankle) is highly questionable for Week 7 after he missed practice Wednesday, Oct. 17. It's unclear if he dealing with a high or low ankle sprain, but he doesn't look to be back to 100 percent health. Graham has been doing some running, and the team is optimistic he'll be back sooner than later. TE David Thomas is the backup tight end should Graham be unable to suit up in Week 7.

Fantasy Tip: If Graham doesn't play, expect boosts in looks out of Marques Colston, Devery Henderson and Lance Moore. Darren Sproles and Pierre Thomas would likely be more involved in the passing game, too.
