In the second quarter of the Seattle Seahawks’ home opener against the San Francisco 49ers, star TE Jimmy Graham went down in pain after he was injured on a Chris Carson running play. FOX never showed a replay of what happened, but it was definitely a knee issue after a 49ers player rolled up under him as the play ended.
Graham rolled around in agony after the play ended, tried to walk off under his own power, but dropped to the ground again. He was able to make it to the sidelines, where he remained for the rest of the Seahawks drive (which was all of two plays).
Here’s the latest update from Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times.
Graham out of the tent and appears okay.— Bob Condotta (@bcondotta) September 17, 2017
Graham has been held to no catches in the first half, dropping his only target after taking a big hit by safety Jaquiski Tartt.
Seattle currently leads the 49ers by a score of 6-0.
UPDATE: Graham returned on the ensuing Seahawks possession, so that’s a huge sigh of relief.
