Saints TE Jimmy Graham has dealt with unreported wrist pain since preseason

Saints tight end Jimmy Graham @TheJimmyGraham missed a game back in October due to a sprained ankle. That was widely reported by the team. What hasn't been revealed until today, by Graham himself, is that he has been playing with a wrist injury since before Week 1.
"It has been pretty bad since preseason," Graham said of his wrist pain to the New Orleans Times-Picayune. "... I played through a lot of stuff and unfortunately, I've played every game this season pretty banged up but so has everyone else in this locker room."
Graham also said that he feels the pain while blocking and catching passes.

Fantasy Analysis:

And we're just finding out about this? Fantastic. You can certainly assume that the wrist has played a role in Graham's relatively disappointing season, which has included nine dropped passes, tied for second-most in the league. I have a feeling the Saints will be having a little chat with some suits from the league office about this one. Even if Graham is not limited in practice or on game days, the team still must fully disclose all injuries to key players.
For fantasy, you're still rolling with Graham. He hasn't built on last season's performance, but given the schizophrenic nature of the position this year for fantasy points, Graham remains an easy top-three option.
