Eagles being cautious with Brandon Graham

Last year’s first-round draft pick, defensive end Brandon Graham, is eligible to return to the field for Week 7 and could see his first game action of the year in Week 8 vs. Dallas, but the Eagles are being cautious with Graham, despite the fact Trent Cole is also out at the DE position.


“Listen, he’s coming off major surgery, so you want to bring him back in and let him get back into football here, and that normally takes a little bit of time. You have to be realistic about it and then go from there,” Coach Andy Reid said. “I can tell you, his last play was his best play. It was a phenomenal move on his last play when he hurt his knee. So we’re looking for him just to get back in the swing and get in that groove of playing football. He hasn’t had contact with anybody yet, you can’t do that when you’re on the [Physically Unable to Perform] list.”
