Jimmy Graham expects to be active vs. Broncos

Mary Langenfeld-US PRESSWIRE

Saints tight end Jimmy Graham is expected to be active for the team's game against the Broncos on Sunday night.

New Orleans Saints tight end Jimmy Graham should be active against the Denver Broncos, barring an issue occurring during warmups, according to a tweet from Fox Sports' Jay Glazer. Graham sprained his ankle on Oct. 7th against the San Diego Chargers, and missed the team's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Oct. 21st while nursing the injury.

Graham's return is good news for Drew Brees and the Saints offense. Even though the Saints were able to score 35 points against the Bucs without him, Graham has quickly become one of Brees' favorite targets. A prolonged absence would undoubtedly hurt the Saints' already tough task of crawling back from an 0-4 start. The Saints are looking for their third straight win in Denver on Sunday night.

Graham has 25 catches for 252 yards and three touchdowns in the 2012 season. He had 99 catches for 1310 yards and 11 touchdowns in 2011.
