New Orleans Saints TE Jimmy Graham is active and will be playing in Sunday’s Week 8 game vs. Buffalo.

Graham is dealing with a partially torn left plantar fascia.

Graham told JayGlazer that it’s a pain tolerance issue. Graham tested out his foot earlier this morning in pregame warm-ups and made the decision to play.

Graham will likely be on a snap count, but it’s entirely possible he sees a few red-zone targets.

Partially torn plantar fascia is extremely painful and makes it hard to run and cut.


Graham missed practice Wednesday and Thursday before returning to get in a limited session Friday.
