On the heels of a painful loss for Seahawk’s Thursday night, Packers now apparently will be without Jimmy Graham for a while.

The veteran end left the game in the second quarter with a tumor injury and ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported on Friday afternoon that a source said the thumb is broken. The team is now trying to determine how long Greenbay’s marketing campaign will be sidelined. It’s not good news for a team that wins 4-5-1 after another loss.

Graham seemed to hurt himself and blocked Seattle security Bradley McDougald.

Shortly after he left the game, Aaron Rodger’s Fourth string struck tight Robert Tonyan for a 54-yard touchdown pass – and confirmed afterwards that he believed in the split second he let the ball throw him to Graham before he realized it was actually Tonyan downfield.

Graham, 31, has 34 receptions for 452 meters and two touchdowns this year, but his production has dimmed recently. Including Thursday’s early exit, he has recorded a reception in three of Green Bay’s last four games.

Packer’s next game is at the weekends on November 25th.
