Seahawks’ Jimmy Graham out for the season

The Seattle Seahawks have lost tight end Jimmy Graham for the rest of the season. Graham suffered a patellar tendon injury against the Pittsburgh Steelers on CBS Sports.

He’ll have to undergo surgery, according to head coach Pete Carroll.

“We’ve loved Jimmy Graham coming to our team and [are] very grateful that he’s been part of it,” Carroll said. “We’re going to miss the heck out of him the rest of the season. He’s been a fantastic addition. You saw him again today doing stuff, and he was going to have a huge day today if he was able to stay out there. So that’s unfortunate.”

He had four receptions for 75-yards. This comes at the worst one for as the team was just beginning to utilize him like they were supposed to.

On the play he was injured, he was running a fade route down the right side of the field against Steelers cornerback Antwon Blake early in the fourth quarter. Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson threw him the ball; however, the ball was under thrown.

On the incomplete pass, Graham went down awkwardly that looked ugly from the get-go.

“It’s heartbreaking,” wide receiver Doug Baldwin said. “One of the reasons why is because Jimmy works so hard, and the type of person he is in our locker room, everybody loves him. You never want to see anybody go down, and if they do, hopefully it’s not a season-ending injury.

The 29-year-old had 48 receptions for 605 yards and two touchdowns in 11 games. This is his first season in Seattle after being traded by the New Orleans Saints to the Great Northwest for center Max Unger and a draft pick.
