Saints TE Jimmy Graham had wrist surgery earlier this month
Saints tight end Jimmy Graham underwent surgery earlier this month to correct a wrist injury. Graham played the entire 2012 season with the ailment -- something that wasn't made known until mid-December -- and according to the Times-Picayune, he will have more than enough of time to recover prior to summer camps. Graham won't play in Sunday's Pro Bowl. He has been replaced by the Vikings' Kyle Rudolph.
Graham had the wrist issue, missed about a game and a half due to a sprained ankle and played with a dislocated finger and lingering pain during the final two weeks of the season. He still led an underwhelming class of tight ends in fantasy points, but his 85 catches, 982 yards and nine touchdowns left his fantasy owners wanting more. Graham is a cinch to be a top-2 tight end in drafts next season.
