Brandon Graham Injury Updates | Shark Bites

Eagles DE Derek Barnett returned to a full practice Wednesday. Barnett missed Week 1 with a hamstring injury that also cost him a large chunk of training camp. But it sounds like he'll be ready to face the Rams on Sunday. That will be particularly helpful, as DE Brandon Graham is in the concussion protocol and DE Vinny Curry landed on IR this week with what HC Doug Pederson called a "significant" hamstring injury. Philly also got DT Javon Hargrave back for a limited workout Wednesday. The free-agent addition missed all of camp with a pectoral injury. The Eagles are likely to ease him back in.

Eagles DE Brandon Graham is in the concussion protocol after leaving Sunday's loss to Washington with the injury. We'll see about his status for this week. You should proceed as though Graham will not be available for your Week 2 IDP lineups.

The Eagles have reached agreement on a 3-year extension with DE Brandon Graham, according to multiple reports. The deal keeps Graham from hitting unrestricted free agency later this month. It also keeps in town a player who split his time between the right and left edges of the D-line in 2018 after serving as the primary left DE in 2017. With 3rd-year DE Derek Barnett returning from injury, Graham figures to return to primarily playing the left side in 2019. He has been a productive IDP over the past 4 years but has lacked the big sack numbers to deliver consistent starter value for fantasy owners. Graham tallied 9.5 sacks in 2017 but has no other seasons of more than 6.5.

The Eagles on Monday activated DE Brandon Graham from the PUP. He has been sidelined following the 2017 ankle injury that required offseason surgery. Graham played through the injury in the playoffs, including the Super Bowl. We'll see how ready he is by Week 1.

Eagles DE Brandon Graham "recently" had surgery on his right ankle, according to ESPN's Tim McManus. Doctors operated to promote faster healing on a high ankle sprain Graham suffered in Week 16. He played through the injury in the playoffs but has obviously struggled with it this offseason. Graham's seems likely to miss spring workouts. We'll see if the issue lingers beyond that.

Eagles DE Brandon Graham left in the 4th quarter of Monday night's win over the Raiders with a right ankle injury. We have yet to see any further details on the issue, which originally left him "questionable" to return. After locking up the NFC's #1 seed, though, Philly will have no reason to play Graham in Week 17. That's good news for a struggling Cowboys offense. Expect more playing time for DEs Chris Long and Vinny Curry in the regular-season finale.

The Eagles watched LB Jordan Hicks (quad) and DE Brandon Graham (elbow) leave practice Monday and sit out Tuesday's workout this week. It seems likely that neither defensive starter will play in Thursday night's 3rd preseason game. But HC Doug Pederson called both "day to day" after Tuesday's practice, according to The Intelligencer. That indicates we shouldn't yet worry about either's status for the regular-season opener -- still a little more than 2 weeks away. We'll certainly watch for their healthy returns in the meantime and update for IDP owners.

Eagles DE Brandon Graham is active for tonight's game against the Bears. The last time that was true was Week 14 of 2010. A 1st-round pick, Graham showed pass-rushing promise as a rookie before a serious knee injury ended his season early. He's active ahead of Juqua Parker (ankle) and Philip Hunt, which figures to make him part of the DE rotation. Graham isn't likely to present IDP value the rest of the way but is an interesting option in deeper dynasty formats.

Eagles DE Brandon Graham returned to practice Monday for the 1st time since tearing his right ACL in December. Graham required an ACL repair and microfracture surgery after the injury and opened this year on the PUP. The Eagles now have 3 weeks to decide whether to activate him or put him on IR. The team is expected to activate Graham, though it's unclear how much playing time he might find. Philly already has Trent Cole, Jason Babin, Darryl Tapp and Juqua Parker at the position. DE Philip Hunt seems a likely candidate for release if the team activates Graham. The 2010 1st-round pick showed pass-rush promise last year before his injury. At full health, Graham's speed off the ball fits well with DL coach Jim Washburn's preferred wide-9 style.

Multiple sources are now reporting that Eagles DE Brandon Graham needed microfracture surgery to repair the torn ACL he suffered last year.  Microfracture surgeries are tough to come back from.  Graham now seems much more likely to begin the 2011 season on the PUP list.  And there's a chance that he'll never return to pre-injury form.
