Mike Triplett reports that Saints TE Jimmy Graham will officially be a game-time decision for Week 8 matchup against the Broncos.
Triplett notes that Graham was able to “do more” during Friday’s practice. We won’t know whether or not he’ll be available until later on Sunday, considering that the Saints are on Sunday Night Football.
New Orleans Saints interim head coach Joe Vitt mentioned on Monday that they plan to test TE Jimmy Graham‘s ankle on Wednesday.
Vitt said that “right now we feel good” about Graham’s status for week 8, per Mike Triplett of the New Orleans Times-Picayune.
There’s no question that Graham is one of the best young tight ends in the league, but has struggled to to overcome the ankle injury that he sustained back in Week 5. The Saints have managed to remain effective in recent weeks, despite not having Graham, so things could be looking up for them in the coming weeks if he’s able to get back to being close to 100 percent.
