Earnest Graham Likely Done for Season

If Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Jon Gruden thinks the return of Cadillac Williams is like an early Christmas gift, I have to imagine the news of Earnest Graham's season-ending ankle injury ranks somewhere between root canal and watching somebody kick his dog.

According to Anwar S. Richardon of the Tampa Tribune, Gruden informed the media today that Graham is likely done for the season, after a Vikings defender landed on his ankle in the Buccaneers 19-13 win on Sunday. I suppose this means it's time to warm up the Cadillac.

The injury comes the same week Tampa Bay released Michael Bennett so it could active Williams from the PUP list.

It's a huge blow for the Buccaneers, as Graham was leading their ground attack with 563 yards rushing on 132 attempts, while scoring four touchdowns. He also caught 23 passes for 174 yards.

With Graham out, Tampa Bay's backfield will now be limited to 33-year old Warrick Dunn, and Williams, who as we've mentioned before, has been a sideline observer for 23 of the Buccaneers past 27 games.
