Graham caught six of eight targets for 95 yards during Sunday's 29-29 tie with the Vikings.
Graham finished second on the team in targets and led the team in receiving yardage while posting a long gain of 34 yards. He appeared to score his first touchdown as a Packer midway through the third quarter, only to see it nullified by a holding penalty. Nevertheless, it was an excellent bounce-back performance for Graham, who managed just eight yards on two receptions in the season opener. Perhaps Aaron Rodgers' knee injury has shifted his focus more to short and intermediate pass catchers for the time being, which could have Graham heavily involved once again Week 3 against the Redskins.
Graham isn't expected to suit up for Friday's preseason game at Oakland, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.
Graham rewarded the Packers in his debut for the green and gold last Thursday, parlaying a red-zone look from Aaron Rodgers into an eight-yard touchdown. The coaching staff likely was envisioning such connections upon Graham signing with the organization in March, but his next chance to do so should come in the season opener Sunday, Sept. 9 against the Bears.
Graham (knee) is in uniform for Thursday's preseason game against the Steelers, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Graham was among a group of skill-position players to sit out last Thursday's exhibition versus the Titans, but he'll join Aaron Rodgers and (likely) Randall Cobb (ankle) for approximately one possession this time around. The Packers' big offseason splash, Graham (6-foot-7, 265 pounds) provides Rodgers with a red-zone weapon the likes he hasn't had in his incredibly efficient career.
Graham has been tending to a knee injury for a brief spell, but the concern held him out of his first chance to make an in-game impact as a Packer. His next chance to do so arrives Thursday against the Steelers, assuming he's healthy.
Graham (knee) isn't in uniform for Thursday's preseason game against the Titans, Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports.
Graham didn't take the practice field Tuesday due to a minor knee injury, which presumably is the reason for his absence. Lance Kendricks and Marcedes Lewis will thus handle TE reps with the first-team offense, but less-experienced hands like Emanuel Byrd and Robert Tonyan are poised to receive the most run at the position Thursday. Graham's next chance to make his first impact as a Packer arrives next Thursday, Aug. 16 versus the Steelers.
