Saints will leave Jimmy Graham in New Orleans

Early in the week, the Saints’ plan was to play tight end Jimmy Graham on Sunday.

The plan has changed.

A source with knowledge of the situation tells us that the team has decided to let Graham rest his injured ankle.  He will not be traveling with his teammates to Tampa for Sunday’s game against the Buccaneers.

The absence of Graham, who injured the ankle but kept playing 13 days against against the Chargers, puts more pressure on the rest of the offense.

And on the defense.  With the bye week to improve a unit that has been overmatched and underperforming, first-year coordinator Steve Spagnuolo could have a few surprises for the Fighting Schianos.  (Or is it Schianoes?)

    Good trade, lucky for me I have them both…..and megatron. But I’ll bench Graham and go with Kyle Rudolph from Minn.

    I will never wish another player to be injured. But sometimes I pray…

    Hope Graham gets well. We need him. And I would wish anything bad on anyone Bc I believe in Karma. And I need all the good luck!

    @philly803- regardless of the injury you hosed him/her! Top WR for a top TE is always a huge upgrade.

    What dumb trade that fantasy player made. You definitely got the better of that one even if Graham was healthy!
