Saints TE Jimmy Graham seen wearing walking boot due to ankle injury

For what it's worth, New Orleans Saints tight end Jimmy Graham @TheJimmyGraham chose a good week to injure his ankle because they are on a bye in Week 6. Graham was seen wearing a walking boot after Sunday's win over the San Diego Chargers. Graham rolled his ankle after logging his only catch for the evening late in the first quarter. After sitting out the remainder of the first half, he played limited snaps in the second half.

Fantasy Analysis:

The early assumption would be that Graham should be ready to play in Week 7 but it's still too early to know the severity of the injury. Considering he was able to return to the game, even if only as a decoy is a positive sign regardless. Graham is having a good year in spite of the Saints' struggles. Enterting Week 5, he had 24 receptions for 248 yards and three TDs. Now that the Saints have finally registered their first win, maybe they can build off that momentum and improve upon their slow start to the season. Graham isn't quite on pace to match his 2011 season, but he's still playing very well.
