Eagles’ Brandon Graham underwent ankle surgery, could miss spring workouts
Brandon Graham could miss the Philadelphia Eagles’ spring workouts as he recovers from right ankle surgery.
ESPN’s Tim McManus reported on Tuesday about Graham’s surgery and says it occurred on May 1. He says Graham is expected to be ready for training camp.
The Philadelphia Inquirer’s Jeff McLane confirmed news of the surgery and went a step further, wondering whether any of this has to do with Graham’s contract situation.
Brandon Graham confirmed in a text message that he recently had minor surgery on his ankle. (@Tim_McManus had it first). #Eagles DE could miss all of the spring workouts. Graham said in Feb. that he wanted a new contract, but the sides still remain far apart.

The 30-year-old former first-round pick had a career-best 9.5 sacks last season for the Super Bowl champs. He is set to earn $6.5 million in what will be the final season of his contract.
