Pro Football Talk reports Buccaneers RB Earnest Graham will miss the remainder of the 2011 season after suffering a torn Achilles during Sunday’s loss to the Chicago Bears.
Tampa Bay was already thin at running back as LeGarrette Blount missed Sunday’s game. The good news is that Blount is expected to return next week but they’ll have to consider signing a free agent at some point this week. I still wouldn’t expect to see them contact Tiki Barber despite their current predicament. As of now Kregg Lumpkin will be Blount’s backup.
