When the Seahawks were rallying against the Steelers on Sunday, it seemed they couldn't do any wrong. Then tight end Jimmy Graham went down with an injury and was carted off the field with an air cast on his leg. The initial injury didn't look good and the news afterwords is even worse.
Not long after the victory over the Steelers, the Seahawks announced that Graham will miss the rest of the season.

This is a huge blow to Seattle, who are already down Marshawn Lynch and will no longer have Graham for the remainder of the season and potentially the postseason. Right now, Seattle is on the cusp of the Wild Card picture and are hoping Arizona melts down in the final stretch.
No matter what happens to Seattle, they won't have Graham — which is a shame since he was just starting to click with the offense. Graham will be back next year and hopefully he can pick up where he left off — but things are going to be tough in the here and now for the Seahawks as they attempt to make a run at a third straight Super Bowl appearance.
