I'm not terribly concerned since he came back in the game (and he has the week off due to bye), but anytime you see a guy rolled up on like that you have to believe at least some sort of serious injury occurred.

Everything I hear/read is the same:

- seen in a walking boot after the game Sunday
- interim coach says they'll wait and see

I cannot even find any news as to when they expect him to go have it checked out to verify the degree of the injury.

Any Saint homers hearing anything on the local news?

QFT.

While I expect him to play in week 7, I wouldn't hold your breath for any significant news about whether or not he will until Thursday before the week 7 games.

It's an ankle sprain, and I doubt it's a high ankle sprain since he stayed in for parts of the Charger game to play decoy.

I think the bye is coming at the perfect time for him and the 2 week gap will help him be just fine to tape it up and play at/near full strength.

New CBA will give him a week away from the locker room. Don't sweat it until next week.

Yah, don't sweat it.

On the other hand, how disappointed are the guys who went with Graham and Gronk high in drafts?

I did buy Graham in the front of the 2nd round, but his performance hasn't hurt my team so far. Funny considering my 1st two picks were Megatron and Graham, neither have really done much this season. Good thing I landed Ryan, Marshall and Wayne in later rounds.

Mid round picks can make or break you often. Reggie Wayne / RGIII owners know what I'm talking about.

yep, i waited on a qb in a local league. Ryan kept falling lost track and tried to select him he was gone too many rb and wrs wer falling to pass up on, took doug martin in the 8 th figure I could get rg3 in the 9th and someone took him the pick just before me.

Oh fer sure...

I grabbed Wayne in both redrafts I did this year in the 8th or 9th. Also landed rg3 to back up Peyton (and luck to back up Ryan in the other).

I like how it worked out. :D

Sadly my TEs were Graham and Gates, neither of whom is really that exciting, but I backed them up with Owens and Rudolph late (like 12th round probably) and those guys are doing just fine.

For Moore and Graham owners:

The New Orleans Saints are waiting to release information on injured tight end Jimmy Graham and wide receiver Lance Moore.

Coach Aaron Kromer on Monday declined to provide updates on either player as the Saints prepare to face the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Graham suffered an ankle in the Saints' 31-24 victory against the San Diego Chargers in Week 5, while Moore missed the game because of a hamstring injury.

Moore was held out of practice during the week leading up to the game with San Diego.

Fantasy Impact: These are two key fantasy players from this offense, so owners will want to monitor updates when practice reports are released on Wednesday.

The Saints have had to rely heavily on their passing attack this season and Graham and Moore will continue to benefit from that approach.

Graham had just one catch for four yards against the Chargers but will be a No. 1 option at tight end once he returns.

Moore was targeted 15 times in the Week 4 loss to Green Bay. He is a No. 2 wide receiver, when healthy, in most fantasy formats.

I couldn't agree more, on the same note I feel equally dumb for trading my 3rd round pick for him in the event he's more hurt then reports are letting on thus far. :Drink)

i must have made a dozen posts trying to talk sense into people. Also..had they Gronk owners with first round picks are far dumber than Graham owners. You knew his partner in the 2 te scheme was coming back. to take away his..everything to a great degree. Repeating those numbers from last year for either of them was FARRRR fetched. Even if they came close..STILL not worth the opportunity costs subtracted from the (maybe) gains at the te position. I tried..hopefully some changed their view.

Agreed. Only leagues I own him in were auction drafts where I got him at a discount.

a 3rd is as high as i would ever go for ANY te in the history of the game. Is this a dynasty? Keeper?
