Graham finished Sunday's 38-20 loss to the Vikings with four tackles, including a sack.
Sunday's sack of Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins was Graham's fourth of the season after he collected three in a win over the Jets in Week 5. The 31-year-old has already equaled his sack production from a season ago and needs just six more to set a new career high.
Graham registered three sacks in Sunday's 31-6 win over the Jets.
Graham didn't mark a sack in each of the first four games, but he throttled up against the lowly Jets. His career high is 9.5 sacks posted in the 2017 season, and that's now a realistic goal again.
Graham is signing a three-year contract to stay with the Eagles, Eliot Shorr-Parks of Sports Radio 94 WIP Philadelphia reports.
The 2010 first-round pick has spent his entire career in Philadelphia, playing out his rookie contract followed by a four-year, $26 million deal. While never quite dominant as a pass rusher, Graham offers a nice mixture of durability, consistency and versatility, with five straight seasons recording at least 39 tackles, four sacks and 15 appearances. He'll celebrate his 31st birthday in April and should be locked in as a starter at defensive end for the Eagles.
Graham generated 39 tackles, four sacks, two pass breakups, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery over 16 games in 2018.
Graham's stats belie how impactful he was as a pass rusher. He only logged four sacks, but the 30-year-old ranked among league leaders with 60 quarterback hurries. Overall, Graham performed well in what was the last year of his contract, and he should have a strong market when free agency opens in March.
Graham produced three tackles (three solo), one sack and one forced fumble in the Eagles' 28-13 win over the Redskins on Monday.
Graham suited up for 82 percent of defensive snaps for the Eagles on Monday and was able to notch his fourth sack of the season. The Michigan product is up to 33 tackles (25 solo) on the season and will take on the Giants in Week 14.
Graham recorded five tackles (three solo) and 1.5 sacks in Sunday's 27-20 loss to Dallas.
Graham got to Dak Prescott by himself on the Cowboys' first play of the game and later joined Chris Long for a second-quarter takedown, but it didn't keep the Dallas quarterback from scoring a touchdown later that same drive. The 30-year-old played 55 snaps, the most he's seen this year while matching his season high for tackles in the process. He's up to 27 tackles (20 solo), three sacks and a pass defensed in 2018.
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 from the injury report means he should 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 logged 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, considering they have depth at defensive end with Chris Long, Michael Bennett and Derek Barnett.
Graham (ankle) has been removed from the PUP list ahead of Monday's practice, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.
After missing all of training camp while rehabbing from May ankle surgery, Graham apparently is ready to practice in some capacity. He'll likely be eased in over the next few weeks, as Eagles coach Doug Pederson has already admitted he isn't sure if the 30-year-old will be ready for Week 1. The team is fortunate to have solid depth behind Graham at defensive end, with the position group also including Michael Bennett, Chris Long, Derek Barnett and Josh Sweat. The likelihood of a rotation could make it hard for any of the bunch to stand out as an IDP asset.
Head coach Doug Pederson said Tuesday that he didn't know if Graham (ankle) was going to be ready for Week 1, Eliot Shorr-Parks of NJ.com reports.
Graham, who is recovering from ankle surgery, has been on the PUP list since the start of training camp, and there has been no sign that the defensive end is going to be ready for the start of the regular season. He is coming off a season where he posted a career-high 9.5 sacks, so there isn't a reason for the team to rush Graham back to the field, but there does seem to be a real chance his absence could extend beyond the Eagles' season opener.
Graham (ankle) was placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list Thursday, Dave Spadaro of the Eagles' official site reports.
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 that basically clinched a championship for the Eagles. 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 believes 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.
Graham had right ankle surgery earlier in May and is expected to sit out offseason workouts, Chris Wesseling of NFL.com reports.
Graham suffered a high-ankle sprain in Week 16, but he managed push through it on the way to a Super Bowl win, during which he stripped Tom Brady late in the fourth quarter. This surgery was to expedite the recovery process, and he's on track to be back in action for training camp in July. Graham had his best year yet in 2017, mustering 47 tackles (33 solo) and 9.5 sacks in 15 games.
Graham tallied two solo tackles, a sack and a forced fumble in the Super Bowl victory over the Patriots.
His strip-sack of Tom Brady in the waning minutes of the fourth quarter led to a field goal that put the Eagles up by eight with 65 seconds remaining. It was a perfect ending to a career season which saw the 29-year-old make 47 tackles (33 solo), and shatter his previous career high with 9.5 sacks. He also forced two fumbles, defensed two passes and scored his first career touchdown. The Michigan product should be a top option again at his position in 2018 IDP leagues.
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) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Cowboys, Zach Berman of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Graham did not participate at practice this week, so this is hardly surprising. The Eagles are likely to feature a heavy rotation at defensive end, as they've already secured home-field advantage through the playoffs. The 29-year-old will prepare for a potential return in the divisional round.
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.
