TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- Tampa Bay Buccaneers leading rusher Earnest Graham is done for the season.
Graham limped off the field after his only carry against the Vikings. The Bucs said he hurt his right ankle, but did not release specifics about the injury.
Fourth-year pro Noah Herron was signed to fill Graham's spot on the roster. He has appeared in 23 games with Green Bay and Pittsburgh, rushing for 273 and three touchdowns and catching 29 passes for 211 yards and two TDs.
With Graham out, Warrick Dunn moves into the featured tailback role. He will be backed up by Carnell "Cadillac" Williams, who hasn't played in a game since September 2007 because of a serious knee injury. Williams was moved from the physically unable to perform list to the active roster last week.
