Saints activate Graham; Bills scratch Spiller

New Orleans has decided to activate injured tight end Jimmy

Graham for Sunday’s game against Buffalo, but has scratched running

back Mark Ingram for a fifth straight game because of his injured

toe.

The Bills have scratched running back C.J. Spiller because of

his sprained left ankle and starting linebacker Manny Lawson

because of a hamstring pull.

Graham injured his left foot at New England on Oct. 13 and had

the bye week to rest. He did not practice most of this week.

Graham’s activation is no guarantee he’ll play.

Buffalo’s scratches include cornerback Justin Rogers, linebacker

Ty Powell and guard Antoine McClain.

Those deactivated by New Orleans included safety Roman Harper

(knee), defensive tackle Tyrunn Walker (knee) and running back

Travaris Cadet.
