In addition to losing the game on Thursday night, the Green Bay Packers lost one of their top playmakers, tight end Jimmy Graham, to a broken thumb.
Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports Graham will miss an indeterminate amount of time with the broken thumb.

Though not as potent an offensive weapon as he once was during his heyday with the New Orleans Saints, Graham is still a difficult cover in the red zone and has been one of Aaron Rodgers’ favorite targets this season.
Before being injured, he hauled in 34 passes for 542 yards and two touchdowns in 2018.
Meanwhile, the Packers are 4-5-1 after losing to the Seattle Seahawks on Thursday night, which puts them in eighth place in the NFC playoff chase.
