Saints | Jimmy Graham misses practice
Thu, 24 Oct 2013 15:21:12 -0700
New Orleans Saints TE Jimmy Graham (foot) did not practice Thursday, Oct. 24, and the likelihood of him playing in Week 8 against the Buffalo Bills decreased. TE Benjamin Watson may start in Graham's place if he cannot play. Watson had three catches for 61 yards against the New England Patriots in Week 6 when Graham was blanketed in coverage.
Watson could pick up some of the slack, but as Larry Holder notes, he'll likely be used to block frequently, too. Marques Colston should be primed for a big game, and Kenny Stills and Nick Toon are sleeper options that could make some big plays if Graham doesn't play.
