Brandon Graham not looking good

Philadelphia Eagles defensive end Brandon Graham tore the ACL in his right knee on Dec. 12 of last season, and following surgery shortly thereafter, the early word was that he would be in question to start the 2011 season. That prognosis was darkened a bit on Tuesday by Eagles head coach Andy Reid, speaking from the NFL owners meetings. According to Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer, Reid indicated that it would be a "real stretch" for Graham to be ready for the start of the 2011 season. Though Graham may have a delayed start to his second season -- and other DEs on the roster are battling injuries of their own this offseason -- the team will be helped by the addition of defensive line coach Jim Washburn. During his tenure with the Tennessee Titans, Washburn was able to make solid players out of previously unheralded options while turning some into superstars (Jevon Kearse, Albert Haynesworth, and most recently, Jason Babin). It's possible that the Eagles will add some additional options along the defensive line, though their needs on the offensive line and defensive backfield appear to be a greater priority.
