Found November 05, 2012 on NFL Injury Report:
The New Orleans Saints will enter tonight’s contest against the Philadelphia Eagles without running back Darren Sproles and wide receiver Courtney Roby, but tight end Jimmy Graham has been removed from the team’s injury report and will be full-go. The Saints announced Sproles’ injury early last week, and it was later revealed that his broken hand would require surgery. The procedure generally sidelines players four to six weeks. New Orleans also ruled Roby out due to a shoulder injury, but they are otherwise healthy. The only other players on their injury report, linebacker David Hawthorne (hamstring) and wide receiver Joe Morgan (chest), were able to fully participate in practice this weekend. The Saints were also able to drop Graham from their report, an indication that the tight end is nearing full health. When he’s been on the field this season Graham has been one of quarterback Drew Brees’ favorite targets, catching 30 passes for 315 yards and four touchdowns.
