New Orleans Saints coach Joe Vitt says he thinks TE Jimmy Graham will be fine after hurting himself in practice on Wednesday with the New England Patriots, according to Larry Holder of The Times-Picayune. Graham appeared to injure his back during team drills after making a touchdown catch. After the play, Graham was attended to by trainers and was later seen holding his back trying to stretch it out. He remained on the sidelines but it's not yet clear if he will play on Thursday against the Patriots.
Analysis: Graham is an elite fantasy tight end, so there had to be some momentary concern after this play. He caught 11 touchdowns last season and there's no reason to think the Saints will stop going to him in 2012. This isn't sounding like a big deal and there is no reason to shy away from Graham at this time.
