Just as the Seattle Seahawks were getting it together, they lose Jimmy Graham for the season with a torn right patella.

The injury list in the most important month of the NFL season reads like a Pro Bowl roster: Jimmy Graham, Rob Gronkowski, Julian Edelman, Chris Johnson, Ben Roethlisberger and Peyton Manning (and that’s just in the last two weeks). Playoffs contenders like the Kansas City Chiefs have won five of their last six games without leading rusher Jamaal Charles who went down On October 11th.

In the days to follow, the man who heckled Okafor began the process which could lead to a civil suit. It also became public knowledge that Okafor had a gun drawn on him early in November, attempted to use a fake I.D. and was stopped for driving 108 MPH on the Ben Franklin Bridge back in October.
