METAIRIE, La. — The Saints will go into Sunday’s key NFC South showdown at Tampa Bay with a nearly full roster.

But they won’t know whether they’ll have stand-out tight end Jimmy Graham until Sunday morning before the noon game. Graham was limited in practice Friday and is listed as questionable.

Graham sprained his right ankle in the first half of the Oct. 7 San Diego game and, while he returned to finish that contest, was all but taken out of the game plan in the second half.

Meanwhile, linebacker Scott Shanle, who missed the previous two days with an illness, returned to practice Friday and is listed as probable against the Bucs.

Cornerback Jabari Greer (groin) was full and is probable as is right guard Jahri Evans (left big toe, full).

Additionally, running back Travaris Cadet (right shoulder, full), defensive end Turk McBride (left ankle, full), receiver Lance Moore (right hamstring, full) and linebacker Jonathan Casillas (neck, full) are probable.

Only linebacker David Hawthorne (right hamstring, DNP) is listed as out after he missed his ninth consecutive practice.
