The Philadelphia Eagles received more good news the day after snapping a four-game losing streak with a 20-13 win over Washington. In his Monday press conference, head coach Andy Reid said defensive end Brandon Graham will most likely return to practice following the Eagle's bye week. Graham is currently on the physically unable to prepare (PUP) list after having microfracture surgery on his right knee this past December. The Eagles have until Week 10 to take him off the list.
"He's worked so hard, and you can't help but be pulling for him," Reid said. "He spent so much time rehabbing and getting out there running around and doing the things that he does coming off tough surgery. We'll see how he does."
Reid also said that offensive tackles King Dunlap and Jason Peters, and defensive end Trent Cole have all made progress with their respective injuries and should benefit from the rest and rehab provided by the bye week. Though Reid would not say for certain, he said it's possible Cole and Peters could begin practicing again after the bye week.
"We'll just see how it goes," Reid said. "They made good strides here. The thing I've done with the players is we met today and went over the tape, and I have them out of here until next Monday. The injured guys will remain up here and continue to rehab. We'll just take it day by day here with those guys and see how they do."
