The New Orleans Saints offense should receive a lift against the Denver Broncos on Sunday night as tight end Jimmy Graham is active after missing last week's win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with an ankle injury he sustained against the San Diego Chargers on Oct. 7.

Graham led the Saints with 99 receptions for 1,310 yards and 11 touchdowns in 2011, but has just 25 receptions for 252 yards and three touchdowns through the first seven weeks (six games) of 2012.

Denver will be without cornerback Tracy Porter, who has not been cleared by the team's medical staff after experiencing the same symptoms - light headedness, dizziness, increased heart rate - as when he suffered a seizure in August. The Broncos held Porter out of their Oct. 15 win over the Chargers.

New Orleans: WR Joe Morgan, TE Daniel Graham, OT Bryce Harris, DT Tyrunn Walker, DT Brodrick Bunkley, LB David Hawthorne, LB Scott Shanle

Denver: QB Caleb Hanie, RB Knowshon Moreno, TE Julius Thomas, G C.J. Davis, DT Sealver Siliga, LB Steven Johnson, CB Tracy Porter
