METAIRIE, La. -- New Orleans Saints tight end Jimmy Graham was held out of practice again Thursday, leaving his status in doubt for Sunday’s game against the Buffalo Bills. He participated in the team’s stretching period before leaving the practice field. But the Saints didn’t offer any specifics on whether he might be healthy enough to play Sunday.
“He’s day to day,” Saints coach Sean Payton said of Graham, who has been sidelined since injuring his foot during the Week 6 loss to the New England Patriots. “(Friday) will be an important day.”
On a positive note, Saints defensive end Cameron Jordan (ankle) and right tackle Zach Strief (ankle) returned to practice on a limited basis Thursday, boosting their chances of playing against the Bills.
It appears as though Ingram suffered a setback in his recovery, since he was practicing on a limited basis before the Week 7 bye. But Payton declined to comment on Ingram’s status.
