Graham signed with the Falcons after Matt Bryant suffered a quadriceps injury, and he connected with 11-of-13 field goals in five games. The 38-year-old filled in well, all things considered. Matt Bryant has one year left on his contract, and while the team will probably look for a younger option this season, the 38-year-old Graham isn't going to be a long term option.
Graham figures to serve as the Falcons' kicker for the remainder of this season, after teammate Matt Bryant (quadriceps) was placed on injured reserve Friday. Graham had filled in for the injured Bryant the past two weeks, but now enters this Sunday's game against the Panthers with some clarity regarding his situation for the rest of this season. Last weekend, the veteran Graham made all four of his field goal attempts against the Buccaneers.
Graham will once again serve as the Falcons' kicker Sunday against the Panthers, ESPN's Vaughn McClure reports. With Matt Bryant (quad) ruled out by the team Friday, Graham will handle the team's kicking duties for the third week in a row on Sunday. In Week 13, the 38-year-old made all four of his field goal attempts in a 23-19 loss to the Bucs, en route to a 13-point effort.
Graham will serve as the Falcons' kicker once again this Sunday against the Buccaneers, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Graham will once again fill in for the injured Matt Bryant (quad), who has already been ruled out for Sunday's NFC South showdown. In his Falcons debut last weekend, Graham made one field goal and one extra point.
Graham made a field goal and an extra point in his only two tries in Sunday's loss to the Vikings. Graham was signed to fill in for the injured Matt Bryant, and he did his job Sunday. It's uncertain how long Bryant may be sidelined with the quadriceps injury, so Graham will continue to handle the kicking duties for the foreseeable future.
