Jimmy Graham’s return to Seattle ended with him breaking his thumb which can most definitely side line him for the rest of the season. The test took place on Friday which showed that, Green Bay Packers’ tight end, Jimmy Graham have broken his thumb during his most recent game.
Jimmy Graham got signed by Packers this off season after playing for Seahawks for three years. But now he had to be benched in his most recent game just after the first half of the play. The game was lost by the packers by 27-24.
Packers decided to use Lance Kendricks solely in Graham’s place post his injury. But it is being said by the coach that if his injury proved to be suggestively long term, Robert Tonyan, who is famously known for catching a touchdown at 54 yards, can have his play time increased.
The coach is confident that Robert is ready for this opportunity, he has been showing off his skill well. He also added that there is no doubt in the fact that he can play and can really raise the bar in the hour of need.
He also added that he really came around and performed his best till the end of training camp this year and since then, he has pleasantly surprised us all. This is the reason the whole team and the coach as well, has such confidence in his abilities.
The packers are all set to play against Minnesota this Sunday. The coach hasn’t yet declared that whether or not Graham would play in the game against the Vikings.
They are still not quite sure about the extent of his injury and don’t want to pass a statement without having the complete details about it.
They would let him decide what he wants to do and how he feels about playing in the game next Sunday. The coach says he is in the practice room, so it would be his decision.
We don’t know if the packers fan would be able to see Jimmy Graham play in the next game against Vikings, but we sure hope to see him back on the field to play some exquisite quality game.
The team has invested a lot of money and time on him, this can prove to be a big blow to their plans to win the season. Nevertheless, it didn’t seem to have broken their morale and they seem ready to go and play their next game with their current team players.
