Jimmy Graham TE NO 6 Days
Jimmy Graham played on 54-of-62 snaps in Monday night's loss to the Seahawks.
The Saints were getting blown off the field in slippery conditions and Graham still played just about every snap. It's a sign there's no concerns at all with his foot. Expect a monster performance as the Saints come home to face the Panthers in a NFC South showdown on Sunday Night Football. Graham lit up Carolina for 16 catches, 186 yards and two touchdowns in two meetings last season.

Jimmy Graham caught three passes for 42 yards and one touchdown in Week 13 against the Seahawks.
Graham saw a team-high nine targets. He could have had a much bigger night had he been able to hold onto a couple passes that he took big hits on. Either way, Graham still led the Saints in receiving in a game which Drew Brees passed for just 174 yards on 38 attempts. Graham had the two biggest gains of the night. His touchdown came from two yards out in between three defenders. At the season's three-quarter pole, Graham is on pace to catch 90 passes for 1,317 yards and 16 touchdowns. He's an every-week top-two tight end.

Jimmy Graham caught five passes for 100 yards and a touchdown in New Orleans' Week 12 win over the Falcons.
Graham filled up the highlight reel despite drawing only seven targets. He scored an easy 44-yard touchdown on play action in the second quarter - and mis-aligned the field-goal uprights with his dunking celebration - and dump-trucked any and all defenders along the sideline on a 35-yard catch early in the second half. Graham moved the way you'd expect LeBron James to look in a football uniform. Clearly no longer restricted by his foot injury, Graham now has 11 days to heal up for Week 13, where the Saints will venture to Seattle for Monday Night Football.
