It looked like every thing would be alright with Saints tight end Jimmy Graham when he was able to return to practice on a limited basis Friday for the first time since suffering a foot injury in Week 6 vs New England that forced him from the game and led to his team’s first loss. Graham rested his foot through the bye week but still needed to sit out Wednesday and Thursday before returning to practice Friday.
Now, FOX Sports’ Jay Glazer reports Graham is dealing with a partially torn plantar fascia in his foot:
Partially torn plantar fascia is extremely painful and makes it hard to run and cut. No way to predict until he runs this AM

On the year, Graham has 37 receptions for 593 yards (16.0 yards per catch) and 6 touchdowns. Ben Watson is next in line to start if he’s out or limited.
