Jimmy Graham to test ankle on Wednesday, could be ready for fantasy owners in Week 8

Derick E. Hingle-US PRESSWIRE

New Orleans Saints tight end Jimmy Graham (ankle) will be tested on Wednesday and could be ready to play in Week 8. We break down the fantasy implications.

New Orleans Saints tight end Jimmy Graham will test his injured ankle on Wednesday and could be ready to take the field in Week 8, coach Joe Vitt said on Monday. Vitt said there was a pretty good chance of Graham being able to play against the Denver Broncos.

Graham was inactive for Sunday's win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Graham was was limited late last week in practice and had been listed as questionable for Week 7. Graham hurt the ankle earlier this month against the San Diego Chargers.

Fantasy Impact: Fantasy owners counting on Graham had to be a little frustrated on Sunday but that is the risk of not having a backup plan for an injured player. His injury status will be monitored as the week goes along but there is a better chance he plays this week.

Graham remains a No. 1 fantasy tight end and should return soon.
