Jimmy Graham hauled in 2-of-5 for 13 yards in the Packers' Week 14 win over the Falcons.
Graham was inches away from a big play in the first quarter, but the pass from a scrambling Aaron Rodgers was broken up at the last minute near the goal line. He came up with an eight-yard catch later in the first half, but that was it for him at the break. The Packers were able to sit on the ball with a big lead in the second half, but Graham did come up with a big third-down catch in the fourth quarter to help bleed more time off the clock. Mostly a disappointment this season, Graham will be nothing more than a back-end TE1 next week against the Bears. Dec 9 - 4:32 PM

Jimmy Graham (knee, thumb) will play in Week 14 against the Falcons.

Both Randall Cobb (hamstring) and Graham were removed the injury report Friday. With Mike McCarthy's approach now out the window, Aaron Rodgers and Graham should logically return to being mid-tier starters against the Falcons' injury-riddled defense. Cobb remains a dicey WR4/5 after seeing only five targets in a full-time role upon his return against the Cardinals.
Dec 7 - 4:32 PM

Jimmy Graham caught 8-of-11 targets for 50 yards in Green Bay's Week 13 loss to Arizona.

It was Graham's best game in a long time; the 32-year-old tight end has recently battled thumb and knee injuries. Graham will draw another plus matchup in Week 14 against the Falcons. Despite his inconsistency, Graham remains a low-end TE1 play each week.
Dec 2 - 6:02 PM

Jimmy Graham (thumb, knee) will play in Week 13 against the Cardinals.

Jimmy Graham was limited mid-week and promptly removed from Friday's injury report. He fought through his current thumb injury for a 3/34 receiving line in Week 12, but is still a viable low-end TE1 against the Cards given his inevitable on-field usage.
Nov 30 - 3:29 PM

Jimmy Graham (thumb, knee) returned to Packers practice on Thursday, getting in a limited session.

Graham is going to practice even less than usual as he guts out his thumb issue. Graham caught three balls for 34 yards as he played through the injury in Week 12. He will be a mid-range TE2 against the Cardinals.
Nov 29 - 4:15 PM

Jimmy Graham (thumb, knee) didn't practice Wednesday.

Graham was active Sunday but didn't start and played only 22 snaps. He could be held out now that the Packers are unlikely to make the playoffs. Lance Kendricks would be on the streaming radar on if Graham sits.
Nov 28 - 4:40 PM

Jimmy Graham caught 3-of-4 passes for 34 yards in Week 12 against the Vikings.

Graham was active but didn't start. He played limited snaps until the final drive, where he caught all three of his passes. With the Packers out of playoff contention, Graham isn't a lock to play at less than 100 percent next week.
Nov 26 - 12:10 AM

Jimmy Graham (knee/thumb) is active for Week 12 against the Vikings.

Graham will play with an attachment on his thumb. His effectiveness is a concern, but Graham should have a decent target share and red-zone role. The Packers inactives are QB Tim Boyle, WR Randall Cobb, OL Alex Light, DE Mike Daniels, CB Kevin King, CB Bashaud Breeland, and S Raven Greene.
Nov 25 - 6:55 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport confirms Jimmy Graham (questionable, knee/thumb) is "on track" to play Week 12 against the Vikings.

He'll play "barring any complications" to his broken thumb. Graham is also dealing with a knee injury. The veteran was expected to miss 4-6 weeks after his injury last week, but with the struggling Packers facing a must-win, Graham will attempt to play with an attachment on his thumb. At risk of an injury setback and playing in a tough road matchup, Graham will be a shaky TE1 against the Vikes.
Nov 25 - 7:47 AM

Jimmy Graham (thumb) is questionable for Week 12 against the Vikings.

Graham resumed practice on Thursday and looks on track to play Sunday in Minnesota despite breaking his thumb in last week's loss to the Seahawks. Supposedly Graham looked fine catching balls at practice this week and will play with an attachment on his injured thumb. He'll be a risky TE1 in a tough matchup.
Nov 23 - 4:10 PM

Coach Mike McCarthy said Jimmy Graham (thumb) "looked good" at Thursday's practice.

Graham appears to be giving it a go with his broken thumb. It sounds like he'll be out there Sunday night against the Vikings. Graham hasn't produced in weeks and has just two touchdowns. He's a borderline TE1/2.
Nov 23 - 10:55 AM

Packers coach Mike McCarthy said Jimmy Graham will test out his injured thumb during Thursday's practice.

Graham wants to play through his broken thumb, but to do so he will need to be able to block and catch. McCarthy said Graham has an "attachment" for his cast he will test out on Thursday to see if he can do those things. We will hopefully have a better idea of his availability following Thursday's practice.
Nov 22 - 9:33 AM

Jimmy Graham (knee, thumb) did not practice Wednesday.

Graham will allegedly "try to play" through his broken thumb, but we have no idea how that's going to work. Graham can't catch passes if he has to wear a club-like cast, and he won't be able to block with a broken thumb. Graham is likely going to miss weeks. If ruled out, Graham can be dropped in redraft.
Nov 21 - 1:41 PM

Packers coach Mike McCarthy said Monday that Jimmy Graham will "try to play" through his broken thumb in Week 12.

McCarthy wasn't entirely committal on Graham being able to do so, however, explaining that Green Bay's medical staff will work with "different splints and protections" to try to get Graham game ready. Losers in three of their last four, the Packers are in must-win position ahead of Sunday's date with Minnesota.
Nov 19 - 4:15 PM

The San Diego Union Tribune's David Chao expects Jimmy Graham (thumb) to miss 4-6 weeks.

A Friday MRI confirmed a broken thumb for Graham. He may potentially need surgery, putting his rest-of-season status in question. Graham hasn't been a huge factor this year, but losing him is another hit to the Packers' offense. Lance Kendricks will start until Graham returns.
