Pete Carroll confirmed to the media that Jimmy Graham has torn his patellar tendon and will miss the rest of the season after having surgery to repair it. This is obviously a very tough loss for the Seahawks.
It's a very tough road to recovery for Graham.
Confirmed patellar tendon tear for Graham. No good comps for Graham here. Very tough recovery ahead. https://t.co/ql8K5Aarqd— Jene Bramel (@JeneBramel) November 30, 2015
By "no good comps" I mean there are no positive examples of players returning from patellar tears. Williams, Cruz most recent examples.— Jene Bramel (@JeneBramel) November 30, 2015
Jimmy Graham left the Seahawks-Steelers game in the fourth quarter with an apparent knee or lower leg injury. Graham's right leg folded up underneath him as he fell hard to the turf going for a pass in the endzone, and he immediately writhed around in pain on the ground, clutching his knee.
He was fitted with an air cast and put on a cart. He was taken directly into the X-ray room in the stadium, but there's no word on the extent of the injury.
We will update here as soon as we hear more.
