Graham (ankle) was not listed on the team's most recent injury report, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM Radio reports.
It had been previously reported that Graham was closing in on a return to full health. Graham's absence for the injury report points to notion that he'll be available for Thursday's season opener against Atlanta.
Graham (ankle) is practicing at about 80 percent, Zach Berman of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
The Eagles have remained cautious with Graham's transition back onto the field. With the big picture in mind, Graham's long term availability takes precedent over short term practice reps. As Week 1 approaches, it's still unclear whether Graham will be in uniform. Fortunately, we should have an idea of his status following this week's practice.
Graham (ankle) will only take reps in individual drills initially, Zack Rosenblatt of NJ.com reports.
Graham was lifted from the PUP list early Monday, but the Eagles aren't going to rush his recovery. Being back on the field in any fashion is a favorable sign for the Eagles, however, as Graham made a career-high 9.5 sacks and forced two fumbles in 2017. He isn't expected to play in either of the final two preseason games, and coach Doug Pederson isn't even sure if he'll be ready for Week 1. Regardless, the Eagles can absorb his absence in the short-term since they have depth at defensive end with Chris Long, Michael Bennett and Derek Barnett.
Graham toughed out his high-ankle sprain through Philly's Super Bowl win, and he underwent surgery after the season. Training camp isn't necessary for Graham's development, as he posted a career-high 9.5 sacks last season and added one in the postseason -- a strip-sack of Tom Brady to basically clinch a championship. Graham is confident he'll be ready to go Week 1 to kick off the final year of his contract.
Graham -- who underwent ankle surgery in early May -- hopes to retake the field in time for Week 1 against the Falcons, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Graham indicated Thursday that he will be off crutches next week and believe he is ahead of schedule in his recovery from the procedure. A better grasp on his timeline will likely surface as the preseason progresses, but his status for the beginning of the regular season appears hazy at this point.
