    Graham suffering back spasms; limited for rest of day

    In warmups for the New Orleans-Tennessee game today, tight end Jimmy Graham seemed to be hobbling around and having a tough time getting loose.

    It’s because he’s suffering from back spasms, and after catching two passes for 14 yards early in the first quarter, reports have surfaced that say he’ll be limited the rest of the day.

    Though the Saints should have enough firepower to beat the Titans, but without Graham, quarterback Drew Brees will lose his favorite receiver target. And sadly, we probably won’t get to see him dunk the football over the goalposts.


    Hasselbeck suffers calf injury, Locker in for Titans

    With playoff implications on the line, the Titans are hanging tough with the Saints, trailing just 3-0 midway through the second quarter. At 7-5, they come into Week 14 two games out of the final wild-card spot behind the Bengals and Raiders.

    But Tennessee's mountain might've just gotten tougher to climb: on what looked like a routine pass play, quarterback Matt Hasselbeck suffered a calf injury even though he was untouched on the play.

    Rookie first-round pick Jake Locker is now in the game for the Titans. Coming into Sunday, Locker had completed 10 of 21 passes this season for 152 yards, including two touchdowns and no interceptions.

    Hasselbeck's return is questionable.

    Gronkowski sets TE TD record

    A few weeks ago, I wrote about the Top Ten second-year players of today, and much to the chagrin of some in the New Orleans area, I declared Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski to be the No. 1 player from the 2010 NFL draft.

    Gronkowski helped prove it today. With an 11-yard touchdown reception from Tom Brady, Gronkowski set the scoring record for a tight end with his 14th touchdown of the season, breaking his tie with Antonio Gates.

    Like usual, Gronkowski performed his big Gronk spike, only to realize a second later that the ball was something he’d probably like to keep.

  • This was probably not worth a personal foul penalty.
