Jimmy Graham injury: Missed Wednesday practice puts fantasy stock in jeopardy

Derick E. Hingle-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Jimmy Graham was held out of Saints practice Wednesday due to an ankle injury. We break down the fantasy implications.

Jimmy Graham missed practice Wednesday for the New Orleans Saints, Mike Triplett of the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports. Graham suffered a sprained ankle during last week's game against the San Diego Chargers. He was seen leaving the locker room in a walking boot.

Graham ranks 13th among tight ends this season with 252 yards receiving through five games. He has 25 receptions and three touchdowns on the year.

Fantasy Impact: Graham hasn't been the force of a tight end that he was last season, but he has been plenty solid for fantasy owners. Wednesday's injury report creates some serious doubt his availability against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 7, however.

Be sure to take a look at Thursday and Friday's injury reports, and make adjustments accordingly. Graham could very well be headed for a questionable designation and a game-time decision Sunday.
