Seahawks’ Jimmy Graham may be headed for a ‘major setback’

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Jimmy Graham has been ruled out for the upcoming season after suffering a torn ACL.

Graham, who had surgery earlier this year, tore his ACL on the second play of the first half of Seattle’s 31-28 victory over the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday.

The Seahawks released a statement on Graham’s injury.

“We wish Jimmy the best and wish him the best of luck moving forward,” the team said in the statement.

“He has been a tremendous contributor to our team and has been instrumental to the team’s success.

We are grateful to the Seahawks medical staff for the time they have given us to fully evaluate Jimmy’s injury.”

Graham had two catches for 38 yards.

He missed two games this season with a foot injury.

The 26-year-old Graham, who started all 16 games for the Seahawks last season, has caught 44 passes for 681 yards and four touchdowns in his seven seasons with Seattle.

Graham, a third-round pick of the New York Giants in 2015, was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Seahawks in 2016 and played in 12 games in 2017.

He has three career touchdowns and three career receptions for 19 yards.
