SEATTLE -- Seattle Seahawks tight end Jimmy Graham will miss the rest of the season after suffering an injury to the patellar tendon in his right knee in the fourth quarter of Sunday's win over Pittsburgh.
Coach Pete Carroll said after Seattle's 39-30 victory that Graham will need surgery to repair the injury and will be out the rest of the season.
Graham was hurt with 13:36 left in the fourth quarter after trying to grab a deep pass in the end zone from Russell Wilson.
Graham landed awkwardly as he attempted to reach behind him to catch the pass. Graham immediately signaled for trainers and was in significant discomfort on the ground. Trainers placed an air cast on Graham's right leg and he was taken off the field on a cart.
Graham led Seattle with four catches for 75 yards against the Steelers, including a juggling 36-yard catch to set up a touchdown in the third quarter.
