It appears the Green Bay Packers lost more than just the game last night, as the severity of Jimmy Graham's injury was just revealed.
The Pro Bowl tight end left the field early, after injuring his thumb against the Seattle Seahawks. While early reports indicated that he'd miss time on the field, the specifics weren't out yet.
According to NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport, Graham broke his thumb and will be out for the foreseeable future. However, the team is still working to determine an exact timetable.
Graham has 34 receptions for 452 yards and two touchdowns in 10 games. Although Davante Adams is the focal point of the offense, there is no denying that this news is devastating.
This past offseason, Graham signed a three-year deal, worth $30 million with the Packers.
Now, Green Bay will look for Lance Kendricks or Robert Tonyan to assume a larger role. Last night, Tonyan made his first reception of his NFL career, which went for a 54-yard touchdown.
It's been a tough season for the Packers, and losing Graham adds to the team's misfortune.
