Texans-Patriots Injury Report: Garrett Graham Has Concussion, Limited In Practice On Wednesday

Ugh. - Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

You might think the availability of the Texans' second string tight end isn't a monstrous concern heading into Sunday's playoff game in New England. You would be wrong.

First, let's look at today's injury report for the Texans and Patriots, courtesy of NFL Communications:

Now, let's freak out that Garrett Graham is confirmed to be concussed, presumably from that final hit on his HUGE catch late in the fourth quarter in the Wild Card victory over the Bengals. Let's up the ante on said freak out by recalling that prior to the Week 14 matchup against New England--which Graham missed with a concussion received in the previous week's win in Tennessee--he actually practiced all week, only to be declared inactive at the last minute. Finally, let's put a cherry on the freak out sundae by remembering how vital Graham is to what the Texans hope to do on Sunday.

Alright...yours in the Comments. Make your fellow fanatics feel better.
