Brandon Graham suffers knee injury in Eagles vs. Seahawks [UPDATE]


NFL: NFC Wild Card-Seattle Seahawks at Philadelphia Eagles Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

UPDATE: Graham (thankfully) was able to return to the field after halftime.

The Eagles still have some original starters healthy, you say? Well............

Defensive end Brandon Graham is the latest Philly player to head to the locker room for evaluation. He was injured in the first half against the Seahawks, and after returning briefly and spending some time on the sideline with his helmet, he eventually made his way to the locker room with a knee injury.

The Eagles’ defense has done a solid job of slowing down Russell Wilson and the Seahawks’ offense — thanks in large part to Fletcher Cox being a monster — but having Graham on the field adds another level of energy and 1-2 punch at the line.

Graham is only one of four defensive ends the Eagles activated for this game. The other three: Derek Barnett, Vinny Curry, and Josh Sweat. Genard Avery is a healthy scratch despite the Eagles trading a fourth-round pick for him.
