Graham posted two tackles (one solo), including a half-sack, in Sunday's loss to Carolina.
Graham's assisted sack gives him just 1.5 on the season. He's not had a prolific year, but he's been able to get to the quarterback twice in the last three games, which could be a sign he's starting to return to form. However, he's still on pace for his worst sack numbers since 2013, and he hasn't done much to warrant consideration as an IDP. Looking ahead, Graham and the Eagles take on the Jaguars in Week 8.
Graham had three tackles and a sack during Sunday's 23-21 loss to the Vikings.
After posting a career-high 9.5 sacks in 2017, Graham's sack of Kirk Cousins in the first quarter of Sunday's game was his first of the season. The 30-year-old veteran will look to add to that Thursday against the Giants and their suspect offensive line.
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.
