Eagles Injury Update: Brandon Graham placed in Concealer Protocol


Doug Pederson said veteran defenseman Brandon Graham is in concussion protocol after suffering a head injury during the Eagles’ game in Washington.

Graham, who has not missed a game since an injury since 2010, was hurt early in the fourth quarter during a short pass from Dwayne Haskins to Terry McLaurin. He was slow to get up and slowly walked off the field with the trainer. He did not return to the game.

As with the findings, no one is telling how long Graham will be out or whether he will be able to play against Ram on Sunday. Generally – but not always – players who are a victim of uproar miss at least one game.

Graham has played in 135 of a possible 136 games since the start of the 2012 season. That was the only game on the final day of the 2017 season, when Pedersen rested several already locked starts with the No. 1 seed against the Cowboys.

The last time BG missed an injury was in 2010, when he troubled his ACL with three matches left in the season.

Since the beginning of 2012, only one NFL defensive lineman – the Saints Cameron Jordan – has played more games than Graham (136).

Graham, Fletcher Cox and Jason Kelsey are the only Eagles to start every game from early 2018.

Pederson said defensive end Vinny Curry and cornerback Craig James both suffered significant injuries and were out for several weeks. Curry’s injury is a hamstring. James’ is undeclared.

With both Graham and Curry on the injured list, and Derek Barnett’s position on Sunday is also up in the air – he has been out before training begins – the Eagles are too thin on the Edge Razor.

The only healthy edges on the roster right now are Josh Sweat, Jeanard Avery and Casey Tohill.

Swett played 49 snaps on Sunday, most of which were Eagles defensive end and a sack. Avery played 20 snaps. Tohil, a battered seventh-round pick, was inactive.

Joe Ostman, who has been in camp with the Eagles for the past two years, is on the practice squad.

Along with James, the Eagles now have four healthy cornerbacks – Darrius Slay, Avonette Maddox, Nickel Robbie-Coleman and Cre’Von LeBlanc.

Trevor Williams and Eliza Riley are on the practice squad. Riley is an indirect rogue from the military and has more defenses than corner, but Williams has played in 39 NFL games, starting 27.
