Jimmy Graham's shoulder still an issue at times

The Advocate - [Full Article]

Given his performance in recent weeks, the shoulder injury Jimmy Graham dealt with earlier this season might feel like a distant memory for those observing games.

But for the man they’re observing, the shoulder is still very much an issue.

The Saints tight end said Friday that he’s still managing the pain in his shoulder “every day” and that it has impacted his blocking this season.

“At times this year the shoulder has really held me back sometimes,” Graham said. “Other times I’m able to fight through the pain. I just got to man up and keep doing it.”

Fantasy Impact:

Graham initially injured his shoulder during a Week 5 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Coming out of a Week 6 bye, Graham was limited to 30 snaps in the next game against the Detroit Lions. He’s not appeared to be limited since, the story said. Graham currently has 65 catches for 670 yards with nine touchdowns this season. He did not record a catch during last week’s loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers, but his presence and the fact that he drew double teams on many snaps helped open things up for the offense, the story also pointed out.
