Details have been sparse regarding the status of New Orleans Saints tight end Jimmy Graham . Thankfully a source close to the team told Pro Football Talk that Graham will be ready to play Week 7. The 6'7", 265-pounder was seen in a walking boot following New Orleans' 31-24 victory over the San Diego Chargers. Graham only logged one reception for four yards in that game and was forced out of action during the second quarter.
A lot can happen during the Saints' upcoming bye week and there's always potential for a setback, but this is great news for Graham owners. Although he has failed to live up to the high expectations placed upon him, especially considering his average draft position, Graham is still having a solid 2012 season. The former Miami Hurricane remains a Top 10 tight end and should be found in starting lineups as long as he's healthy enough to play.
