VIDEO: Earnest Graham Injury, Bucs RB Out With Ankle Injury

UPDATE: Earnest Graham reportedly tore his Achilles' tendon, according to ProFootballTalk.com.

***

Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back Earnest Graham went down untouched with an ankle injury. He left the game and wound up going to the Buccaneers locker room for treatment. The Bucs are also without starting running back LeGarrette Blount who was inactive with a knee injury.  Without Blount or Graham, the Bucs will turn to back up running back Kregg Lumpkin who has played sparingly for the Bucs the past two years.

The Bucs offense will suffer now being down to their third running back and will put more of the Bucs offense on quarterback Josh Freeman's shoulders. The Bucs should be able to still run the football somewhat, but Freeman will need to limit his mistakes and hit some big plays in the passing game.
