USAToday The Seattle Seahawks will have to make their playoff push without their high-priced tight end. Jimmy Graham is out for the season after suffering a torn patellar tendon during Sunday’s game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, coach Pete Carroll said. “We’re gonna miss the heck out of him for the rest of the season,” Carroll said. Graham had four catches for 75 yards before the injury. The Seahawks acquired Graham in an offseason trade with the New Orleans Saints, giving up center Max Unger and a first-round pick to receive the three-time Pro Bowl selection and a fourth-round selection.
The prize in the biggest trade of the 2015 offseason, Seahawks tight end Jimmy Graham, was finally finding his niche in the Seattle offense over recent weeks. However now his season is over, after tearing is patellar tendon in his right knee during the Seahawks 39-30 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers, a devastating injury for both Jimmy Graham and the Seahawks. The last receiver that I can recall tearing their patellar tendon is New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz, and he missed the entire 2014 and 2015 seasons, so the road to recovery for Jimmy Graham will be long as he rehabilitates this potentially career altering injury.
