Gragg, who suffered a torn ACL during Friday's preseason loss at Washington, was waived/injured Tuesday, BuffaloBills.com reports. The Bills can place Gragg on IR if he passes through waivers, which we assume they might be up for since he was coming on strong before the nasty injury.
Gragg suffered a torn ACL during Friday's preseason loss at Washington, Vic Carucci of the Buffalo News reports. One day removed from predicting the diagnosis, head coach Rex Ryan confirmed the news Saturday. With Gragg lost for the season, Blake Annen and Nick O'Leary may have clearer paths to spots on the 53-man roster.
Gragg may have suffered a serious knee injury during Friday's preseason loss to Washington, BuffaloBills.com reports. "Yeah both of them it looks like ACLs, which is a real shame," said coach Rex Ryan after the game in reference to Gragg and cornerback Jonathan Dowling. We'll wait for the actual medical results to come back over the weekend, but Gragg had a good shot at landing a roster spot and even seemed to be coming into his own in what will be his fourth season.
Gragg will not return to Friday's matchup with the Redskins due to a knee injury, Chris Brown of BuffaloBills.com reports. The severity of Gragg's injury is currently unknown. Heading into Friday's contest the 26-year-old projected as the third tight end on the Bills depth chart. Expect an update when the team reveals the nature of the injury.
Gragg caught two balls for 26 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's preseason loss to the Colts. He also blocked a punt for a safety. Charles Clay is far and away the No. 1 tight end on this team, but it's wide open after that, with Jim Dray, Gragg, Blake Annen, NickO'Leary, and Jimmy Mundine all vying for what will likely be two spots. Gragg's performance Saturday will certainly help, especially when you consider special teams will probably be the tie-breaker. Dray is currently ahead of Gragg on the official depth chart, while Annen, who's just behind Gragg, is coming off a good camp.
