New Orleans Saints tight end Jimmy Graham has been nursing a shoulder injury, and it caused him to have an underwhelming season by his standards.
Graham caught 85 passes for 889 yards and 10 touchdowns, but his production was sometimes scarce in the second half of the season as he even had a game where he was held without a catch.
Due to the pain in his shoulder, the Saints tight end is pondering whether to go through surgery.
“It’s something we talked about and is something that’s still being debated. This is kind of a trial to see where I’m at. I’ve had three weeks off and I’ve finally had some time to heal,” the Saints tight end told The Times-Picayune.
Graham will use the Pro Bowl as the final test for whether he decides to ultimately get surgery on his shoulder.
The Saints will need to get him back to full health as soon as possible as quarterback Drew Brees looked off at times in 2014.
