DE Brandon Graham Hopes To Be Cleared To Practice In September

When Eagles defensive end Brandon Graham hasn’t been rehabbing his surgically repaired right knee in the Los Angeles area, he’s been on a golf course. A lot.

“I played for two weeks straight to get ready for this,” Graham said Monday at Barton Hills Country Club, appearing at an event to support the Jalen Rose Leadership Academy. “Before that, it was about twice a month. It has improved my game. But it has improved my knee, too.”

Graham said the lockout has given him time to rest and recover from major knee surgery last winter. Philadelphia’s first-round pick in 2010 said he is to see Dr. James Andrews this week and hopes to be cleared to practice, not play, in September.

“It’s kind of benefiting me in my situation,” said Graham, who says he’s close to full health. “But I know my other players want to get back and get to work and I’m all about that.” Eagles head coach Andy Reid said in mid-June that he didn’t think Graham would be ready for the start of the season and it appears Graham is sharing the same sentiments.
