Tampa Bay running back Earnest Graham will miss the remainder of the season because of a torn right Achilles' tendon.

Graham was injured during Sunday's 24-18 loss to Chicago in London. He's appeared in all seven games this season, starting the last two with LeGarrette Blount sidelined with a knee injury.

Graham rushed for 109 yards in a victory over New Orleans two weeks ago. He averaged 5.6 yards per carry this season, finishing with 206 yards on 37 attempts. He also had 26 receptions for 163 yards.

The Bucs have a bye this week. If Blount remains sidelined, Kregg Lumpkin likely will move into a starting role.

The team also announced long snapper Christian Yount was waived Tuesday.
