REPORT: Jimmy Graham Expected To Play On Sunday
Sept. 20, 2019
Green Bay Packers tight end Jimmy Graham had a strong season debut in Week 1 against the Chicago Bears , recording three receptions for 30 yards and a touchdown.
However, Week 2 didn’t go as well. He had no receptions on just one target and suffered an injury against the Minnesota Vikings .
There’s some good news on the injury front though. It appears that Graham is likely to play in Green Bay’s Week 3 matchup with the Denver Broncos on Sunday.
The Packers are 2-0 on the year, but the offense has looked a little “eh” to this point. That being said, getting Graham back should help the team tremendously. He gives quarterback Aaron Rodgers another serious threat to target.
Meanwhile, Graham takes pressure off Davante Adams as well.
The fact that he’s not only practicing, but looking good while doing so, is wonderful news. Graham looked ready to break out and have a big year after Week 1, hopefully last week hasn’t slowed down his momentum too much.
In his first year with the Packers, Graham recorded 55 receptions for 636 yards and two touchdowns. By all accounts, that’s a very solid year. However, many people believed it was a down and disappointing year for the tight end. Now he has a chance to build on it though and reestablish himself as one of the better tight ends in football.
The Packers are looking to go 3-0 to start the year, and have to go through the 0-2 Broncos to do so. Although their record isn’t good, the defense is legit. Green Bay will need all the help it can get to keep their undefeated season going. That means Graham suiting up could be the difference in this contest.
Good thing for the Packers, that seems likely.
