I was surprised to hear that Jimmy Graham was going to be active in this game after hearing the details about his injury. He had a partially torn plantar fascia in his foot. The plantar fascia is a band of fibrous tissue that extends along the underside of the foot. The pain feels like it is radiating throughout your entire foot. This injury usually sidelines wide receivers for weeks! Then he goes out and catches 3 balls for two touchdowns and 37 yards! Big props to Jimmy!
