PFT first told you on Sunday that Bucs running back Earnest Graham had a torn Achilles’ tendon.

That initial diagnosis has been confirmed on Monday. Graham will undergo season-ending surgery, according to a league source.

It’s a big blow to a thin Bucs backfield. Kregg Lumpkin took the carries in Graham’s place on Sunday in London. The 4-3 Bucs hope to have LeGarrette Blount back after the bye.
