Packers tight end Jimmy Graham practiced (thumb) for the first time with an attachment taped to his injured thumb Thursday. Head Coach Mike McCarthy told reporters on Friday morning he has “no reason to believe” Graham will be limited against the Vikings after catching the ball fine in practice. “I thought it went well. He took his normal reps for a Thursday practice,” McCarthy said. “So just keep working through (Friday) and (Saturday). But I thought he looked good.
Barely hanging on to top-10 tight end status with a paltry 9.1 PPR PPG, Graham has been ineffective this year. The addition of an injury to his thumb is cause for concern for his owners. We have him ranked as a low-end TE2 for Week 12.
