Saints' Jimmy Graham playing against Lions

Jimmy Graham's recovery from a serious shoulder sprain has been nothing short of incredible.

As it turns out, the Saints tight end is playing Sunday against the Lions. The plan is for Graham to be used mostly in red-zone situations, according to NFL Media's Albert Breer, per a team source. This could help preserve Graham a little bit.

The reeling Saints will need all the help they can get. Graham already has 34 catches for 376 yards and three touchdowns this season and can open up the offense for Drew Brees unlike anyone else the Saints have.

Brees, who had arguably his worst game of the season during his last outing, an Oct. 5 win over Tampa Bay, will certainly be looking Graham's way inside the 20.
