Jimmy Graham sidelined with broken thumb

We're guessing they did a lot more than that.

The Seahawks play host to the Green Bay Packers on Thursday night as they look to recover from a 4-5 start and fight their way back into the playoffs, much as they did in similar circumstances in 2015.

The Packers (4-4-1, third in NFC North) bounced back from a two-game losing streak to beat the Dolphins 31-12 last weekend.

The Seattle Seahawks have a big stage for one of their few remaining good opportunities to make a push for the playoffs. Seattle was 1-8 in its previous nine games decided by one score.

The Packers are first in the National Football League with 5.2 yards per carry, but they rank 27th in rushing attempts.

"Robert's definitely ready", McCarthy said. Green Bay is close behind at 7.7 yards per pass attempt.

In 10 games this season, Graham has 34 catches for 452 yards and two touchdowns.

Aaron Rodgers threw a attractive, 54-yard touchdown pass to fourth-string tight end Robert Tonyan Jr. on Thursday.

"Of course there's hope".


Jones finished with 40 yards rushing after going for a career-high 145 a week ago.

Valdes-Scantling missed just one snap and St. Seattle ranks eighth at 8.0 yards per passing attempt.

Wilson had one more answer.

- Green Bay ran just 49 offensive plays; Seattle had 70.

"I let it go and I stared at it and said, 'Oooooo yeah.'" Rodgers told Silver. "Frustrating obviously, I can do that a hundred times and probably not do that again". And after the Seahawks took the lead back (27-24) with just over five minutes to play, it seemed nearly certain Aaron Rodgers would add another 4th quarter game-winning drive to his resume.

Rodgers thought he was throwing to starting tight end Jimmy Graham, but Graham was out of the game at that point.

The extent of Graham's injury was first reported by NFL Network.

Mike Daniels suffered a foot injury early in the second half and backup safety Raven Greene suffered an ankle injury.
