NEW ORLEANS — Saints tight end Jimmy Graham is active today against Buffalo in spite of missing two days of practice this week with an undisclosed foot injury.

Several national reports said Graham is suffering from a partially torn plantar fascia, but the Saints have not commented on what exactly is ailing the hard to match-up with tight end.

Running back Mark Ingram, meanwhile, was limited Friday and claimed to be feeling as good as he has since injuring his right big toe against Tampa Bay in Week 2. That wasn’t enough to keep him active, however, and he’ll miss his fifth consecutive game.

Tackle Terron Armstead, quarterback Ryan Griffin and running back Travaris Cadet are all healthy scratches.

Receiver Lance Moore is active and will play for the first time since injuring his hand against Arizona in New Orleans’ Week 3 win over Arizona.

Safety Roman Harper (knee), defensive lineman Tyrunn Walker (knee) and cornerback Rod Sweeting (hip) all were deemed out earlier this week.

For Buffalo, running back C.J. Spiller will not play, ending a week of speculation as to whether he would be a factor against the Saints.

He’s joined by quarterbacks E.J. Manuel and Matt Flynn, defensive back Justin Rogers, linebackers Ty Powell Manny Lawson and offensive lineman Antoine McClain.
