Jimmy Graham has reportedly returned to training with the New Orleans Saints following a medical incident that led to him getting arrested on the weekend.
Graham had been taken into police custody after cops observed him wandering in traffic on Friday. The lawmen had gotten called after persons observed someone behaving erratically outside of a hotel in Southern California, with the Saints flying there to prepare for a preseason game against the Chargers.
It was believed that the tight end was under the influence of a controlled substance because of the way he behaved at the time of his arrest.
The Saints later revealed he had experienced a “medical episode” that left him disoriented.
“New Orleans Saints tight end Jimmy Graham experienced a medical episode last evening, which resulted in him becoming disoriented,” the team announced in a press release.
“He was taken into custody by local authorities and transported to a local hospital for evaluation for what Dr. John Amoss believes to be a likely seizure and spent the night under medical supervision and testing. Amoss met Graham at the hospital and is overseeing his care at this time.”
According to John Hendrix of Saints News Network, the tight end returned to practice on Wednesday afternoon. This is certainly a good sign given the worries stemming from his recent ordeal.
Graham signed a one-year deal to return to New Orleans earlier this year after sitting last season out, having played for the Chicago Bears in 2021. While he isn’t expected to have a significant role with the team, he’d be very useful in the red zone.
