Graham back at practice; Ingram not

Jimmy Graham (back) was able to turn in a full practice Wednesday.

Graham started hurting in pre-game warmups Sunday, but managed to lead the Saints in targets and play 46-of-75 snaps. Although he's still experiencing some pain, the fact Graham was able to practice in full today suggests he's not in any danger of missing Week 15. Even at less than 100 percent, he remains the best fantasy tight end not named Rob Gronkowski.

Mark Ingram (turf toe) did not participate in Saints practice Wednesday.
Ingram suggested last week he was dealing with a minor case of turf toe, but he's off to a bad start for Week 15. If he's not able to at least practice in a limited capacity on Thursday, he'll be more likely than not to miss his second straight game. Chris Ivory, and not Pierre Thomas, handled most of the Saints' short-yardage work in Ingram's Week 14 absence.

Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege.

All little common sense goes a long way.

Not worried! Ivory can certainly handle toting the rock.

And, it's good to get Ivory some playing time, and feel for the game again, after the injury and rehab.

C'mon Ingram!! I'm rooting for the guy. I would like to see him try to come into his own before the end of the season.

I gotta admit; I had a teen girl Justin Beeber moment when Ivory walked over to the bench last Sunday right in front of me.

O my God! O my God! O my God!!! LOL

I dig Ivory after his burst last year. A couple more games and he'll be devastating. I noticed he nursed his hams constantly on the sideline last week. That's good... I hope.

Would love to see Ingram back on the sideline as well. We are going to be MASSIVE, with FOUR running backs during the playoffs.
