DENVER — Tight end Jimmy Graham is active tonight against the Denver Broncos after missing the previous game with a right ankle sprain sustained three weeks ago.

The linebacker corps, however, is down to five players with starters David Hawthorne (right hamstring) and Scott Shanle (undisclosed) ruled out.

Shanle wasn’t listed during the week’s injury report.

Meanwhile, running backs Chris Ivory and Travaris Cadet both are active.

On the defensive line, tackle Brodrick Bunkley is out. He also was not on the week’s injury report.

Receiver Joseph Morgan (chest) and tight end Daniel Graham (left ankle) were both deemed out earlier in the week. Tyrunn Walker and Bryce Harris haven’t been active for a game yet this season.

Graham returns after missing the Saints’ win over Tampa Bay. He was limited in practice throughout the week and was listed as questionable.

For Denver, former Saints cornerback Tracy Porter is inactive after missing the past two days with health problems.

In addition to Porter, quarterback Caleb Hanie, running back Knowshon Moreno, linebacker Steven Johnson, offensive guard C.J. Davis, tight end Julius Thomas and nose tackle Sealver Siliga are inactive
