Saints tight end Jimmy Graham saw a much more limited role in Sunday night’s throttling of the Dallas Cowboys, as he continues to deal with a partially torn plantar fascia in his foot. Per Mike Triplett, Graham was in on just 33 of 83 snaps on Sunday night. Graham sounded fairly accepting of the process when he spoke to the media. “They just want to make sure that they’re handling me the right way. They really look to limit me at times. You know, I’ve got some issues. But you know, everyone does. So it’s gonna be like that from week to week.” Graham caught five passes for 59 yards. While the game may have been a letdown to Graham and his fantasy owners, the Saints’ offense erupted for seven touchdowns. The Saints were under some heat for their overuse of Graham in previous weeks, so the balance the offense found in Sunday’s game is a great sign. It was an extremely well-rounded effort; Drew Brees threw four touchdowns to four different receivers and three different running backs found the end zone. Marques Colston, struggling with injury and lack of production, got back on track with seven catches and a touchdown. The Saints need all weapons firing if they’re planning a deep playoff push. For Graham, the injury is really starting to linger but it will be best for everyone in the long run if they can get their other offensive weapons going while Graham is paced a little better than he had been early on.     You can find me on Twitter @robsirloin.
