Packers will be without Jimmy Graham for the next 4-6 weeks

The Green Bay Packers have continued to see their season head south over the last few weeks currently on a three-game skid that has pushed them out of the playoff picture.

Things have become a bit more difficult with Pro Bowl tight end suffering a broken thumb in the 27-24 loss to the Seattle Seahawks on Thursday night. According to Dr. David J. Chao, who is a former NFL team head doctor, this is an injury that takes between four-to-six weeks to heal completely from surgery.

Regardless of the timetable for a return, this is a significant loss for the Packers as Graham is one of the primary targets in the passing game. He has recorded 34 receptions on 56 targets for 452 receiving yards and a pair of touchdowns. However, his production has dropped off n the last few weeks as he has notched fewer than 30 receiving yards three times in the last four games played.

Graham is a huge asset in the red zone that the Packers will miss over the next several weeks that should see them switch things up a bit with more of a dependency on Pro Bowl wideout DaVante Adams along with wide receivers Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Randall Cobb, and Geronimo Allison. Meanwhile, it could see them utilizing the running game more with running back Aaron Jones.

This makes the path to the playoffs a bit more difficult, which will make it quite interesting to see how things unfold over the next several weeks.
