Saints TE Graham, CB Greer get medical checks Monday

METAIRIE, La. – Saints tight end Jimmy Graham spent part of his Monday going through a medical checkup to determine the severity of an ankle sprain, interim coach Aaron Kromer said.

“We really don’t know of his progress right now,” Kromer said early Monday.

Additionally, cornerback Jabari Greer was going through testing after re-aggravating the groin injury that forced him to miss nearly all of training camp and the season opener after having sports hernia surgery.
Greer didn’t play in the second half and played only 23 of the team’s 65 defensive snaps.

But Kromer is optimistic about his return after the bye week.
“It looks good, so hopefully he’s ready for Tampa Bay (in two weeks),” Kromer said.

Graham, meanwhile, was announced in the press box as being questionable to return coming out of the halftime break. But he did return, though he didn’t make any catches in the second half. He wasn’t thrown a pass in the final 30 minutes and caught only one ball all game.

He left the Superdome with a walking boot on his right ankle.

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

All little common sense goes a long way.

When are we eligible to re-sign Marquis Johnson? Assuming he'd be willing to come back.

I think every guy we've cut so far will pretty be available when we give them a call. We're working the wire like New England these days with a street free agent taxi squad.

I do not like the sound of this on Graham: “We really don’t know of his progress right now,” Kromer said early Monday.

If it were just a sprain they would have said that. We do not know.... They are hiding something.

GREAT timing for the bye.

Maybe we can get both of them + Hawthorne back after this break

I have a bad feeling that Greer will be hobbled all season.

Colston needs the rest also, he was struggling on that foot even though he had a huge game.

Re: Saints TE Graham, CB Greer get medical checks Monday

i need to go back and give papz a like on his post about seining the wire for fit bodies. damm were the walking zombie town, looking at coaches, players, and managers that are outn for us. i saw when grahm folded that ankle under his own body. its the way he always falls after a catch. goes straight down to his knees after a catch and tacklle. he needs to improve on falling that whale body of his. remember ricky williams had that problem when ditka married him.

Greer is the one that I'm worried about. He's no spring chicken and that groin injury doesn't seem to be going away.

Hate to say it, but; an incomplete pass to Greer's receiver = FIRST DOWN.
He has become an absolute mugger as of late.

Graham needs to stop slam-dunking through the goal posts when he scores, too. I keep waiting for him to come down wrong and lame himself for celebrating.
