BAGSHOT, England (AP/CBS) –Earnest Graham fantasy value just increased a little bit more.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach Raheem Morris says running back LaGarette Blount will not play against the Chicago Bears in London on Sunday.

Morris ruled out Blount again after he missed practice all week in London, meaning Graham should receive the bulk of the careers on Sunday. He has 193 rushing yards on 35 careers so far in 2011, 109 yards coming last week against the Saints.

Blount took a hit on his left knee in a Week 5 loss to the San Francisco 49ers and missed the Buc’s win over the Saints last week.

Morris says center Jeff Faine was doubtful after missing practice this week with an arm injury. Wide receiver Sammie Stroughter will be a game-time decision.
