This Given Sunday is examining the biggest injury questions before each week of the NFL season. Here are the top-five health-related storylines entering Week 8.
After missing the Saints' Week 7 game in Tampa, Graham has been practicing this week on a limited basis. That's progress, but it's a bit concerning that Graham wasn't able to go last week coming off the bye. It'll be tempting for fantasy owners to roll the dice on the stat-heavy Graham in Week 8, but he's very likely to be a game-time decision and the Saints don't play the Broncos until Sunday night.
DeMarco Murray/Felix Jones
It's looking as though Murray will sit out his second straight game due to a foot injury, while Jones was held out of Wednesday's practice due to a knee bruise. Jones should still be good to start if Murray can't go, but he'll be less than 100 percent and is coming off a bad game vs. Washington. If you can avoid the Dallas backfield this ...

Sean Payton may not have contact with his team, but it doesn’t mean he’s not emotionally involved. It must be hard for the fiery coach to stand by watching his team prepare and play each week. The man who helped rebuild New Orleans, Payton only can sit back and watch, and he spoke to Bobby Hebert and Deke Bellavia on WWL in New Orleans about his confidence abou his staff.
A New Orleans Saints fan, who posts as "2009ring" on SaintsReport.com, recently managed to pull off this photo of him and NFL commisioner Roger Goodell. What makes this pic so intriguing is the "Free Sean Payton" shirt the clever fan was wearing at the time of the shot. Why is that relevant? Well, the man responsible for putting Payton on the sidelines is none...
In the aftermath of Sean Payton being suspended by Roger Goodell for the entire season, “Free Sean Payton” t-shirts began to pop up all over the web. But one place we never thought one of those t-shirts would pop up is in a photo with Roger Goodell himself.
Well, that all changed when a Saints fan who posts under the name,”2009ring” on SaintsReport.com posted the picture...

Saints running back Chris Ivory is not happy with his lack of playing time, Kristian Garic of WWL Radio in New Orleans reports.
"Deep down, I would have to say, yes, I'm frustrated," Ivory told Garic. "It's a little frustrating to just kind of sit back. I just feel like my worth is more than that, than just, you know, sitting back on the side."
Irony plays no small part in the picture above, and if you're like me, you're asking yourself how Roger Goodell, commissioner of the NFL, found himself in focus for this shot.
The fan who's picture was fetched by the great folks at Deadspin, posted his own explanation of how the picture came to be on the Saints' forums,
The picture. During the event, I...

The last time Peyton Manning and Drew Brees met - in Super Bowl XLIV - the game ended with Brees and the New Orleans Saints raising the Lombardi Trophy.
Manning will be looking for a bit of revenge Sunday night as the Denver Broncos host the Saints, who play their first game under interim coach Joe Vitt.
A lot has changed since that matchup in February 2010. Of course, Manning...
I know, I know, you might think that I am crazy for saying this. But I firmly believe that The Madden Curse is real and I HAVE PROOF! Here are the stats of the last few Madden Cover players and the failing seasons that they have had.

The Tampa Bay Offense. The Saints won? Oh right, like you had any doubt. You expect the New Orleans offense to fire on all cylinders. Tampa Bay on the other hand, not so much. Free Agent acquisition Vincent Jackson goes for 216...
