Graham (ankle) practiced fully Tuesday. According to Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer, the Eagles entered the practice field in full pads. Shortly thereafter, Graham was partaking in individual drills, per Martin Frank of The Delaware News Journal, a good sign the defensive end was getting over the ankle injury that forced him out of the regular-season finale. Graham proceeded to handle every rep thrown his way, though, which sets up the Eagles with their full array of pass rushers for Saturday's divisional-round game against the Falcons.
Graham (ankle) didn't participate in the Eagles' walkthrough Thursday. The Eagles have held walkthroughs rather than practices on back-to-back days, and Graham's inability to participate in either suggests he likely won't be available for the Week 17 contest against the Cowboys. Instead, Graham's top priority will be recovering from the ankle injury and returning to full health for the Eagles' first playoff game in the NFC divisional round. The team already earned a first-round bye and home-field advantage throughout the playoffs with its victory Week 16 over the Raiders.
Graham, who departed Monday's 19-10 win over the Raiders with an ankle injury, said after the game that X-rays came back negative, Reuben Frank of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports. He accrued four tackles before exiting the contest. Graham indicated that he would be fine going forward, but with Monday's win guaranteeing the Eagles home-field advantage for the postseason, the team might not have much incentive to run the defensive end out there for a mostly meaningless Week 17 matchup with the Cowboys. If Graham is sidelined for the regular-season finale, Chris Long, Vinny Curry and Derek Barnett could pick up a few extra snaps as part of the Eagles' defensive-end rotation.
Graham injured his ankle and is listed as questionable to return to Monday's game against the Raiders. Neither the nature or severity of Graham's injury is clear. Both Derek Barnett and Chris Long should pick up additional snaps in his absence.
Graham had two tackles (one solo) and one sack Sunday against the 49ers. Graham is approaching his career high of 6.5 sacks, and he's only played eight games. His tackle count is troubling, though, with just 20 (13 solo) on the season, meaning his IDP value is held up by his sack count, and Graham has had three games without a sack this season. Facing the Broncos in Week 9 bodes well for Graham, though, since quarterback Trevor Siemian has been sacked on 9.2 percent of his dropbacks, ranking 32nd in the league.
