Saints TE Jimmy Graham has partially torn plantar fascia
We know that Saints tight end Jimmy Graham is unlikely to play today against the Bills because of his foot injury, and he will probably be in pain for the rest of the season. Graham told FOX Sports' Jay Glazer that he has a partially torn plantar fascia in his foot.
That type of injury heals best with simple rest. And that means Graham will likely have to play through pain for the duration since the Saints are just now coming out of their bye. He probably won't play today, and even if he does, he'll be heavily limited. Maybe the week off does him some good, but plantar fascia injuries don't tend to heal quickly. For today, Ben Watson is on the fantasy radar if you need a deep option at tight end.
