Found October 26, 2012 on Pro Sports Daily:
The playing status of injured New Orleans Saints tight end Jimmy Graham will be a game-time decision for Sunday against the Denver Broncos, according to the Times-Picayune. Graham missed last Sunday's game with an ankle injury. The tight end, who is listed on the team's injury report as questionable, told the newspaper he wants to play. "If it was up to me, I'd play," he said. "I'm good." Graham has 25 catches for 252 yards with three touchdowns in five games this season. Also, linebacker Johnathan Vilma is expected to play while he awaits a decision on his appeal of a one-year suspension in the 'bounty' scandal. He made his season debut last week, coming off a knee injury. A decision on the appeal is scheduled Tuesday.
