Found October 28, 2012 on NFL Injury Report:
New Orleans Saints tight end Jimmy Graham traveled with the team to Colorado for tonight’s game against the Denver Broncos, reports Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.com. Graham remains a game-time decision due to his ankle injury. A source with knowledge of the situation confirms that Graham made the trip in advance of Sunday night’s showdown between Drew Brees and Peyton Manning. What’s significant about Graham making the trip is that he didn’t do so last week when the Saints traveled to Florida to take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. New Orleans thought Graham would be back and ready to return this week after sitting out the Bucs game, but it’s been more difficult for the tight end to recover than initially expected. Florio notes that Graham’s still not a certainty to suit up against the Broncos just because he made the trip to Denver.
