Graham had the procedure May 1 and is now in a protective boot.

Not to mention, it looks like Philadelphia can add Brandon Graham to their list of players dealing with injuries after the defensive star recently had surgery on his right ankle. He says Graham is expected to be ready for training camp. Although he is now in a protective boot, he's still expected to report for the start of the Eagles' OTAs on Monday. Turns out, this surgery was conducted to take care of an ankle injury that Graham originally suffered on Christmas when the Eagles squared off against the Oakland Raiders, and it seemed like missing spring workouts was the only concern.

His strip sack of New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady in Super Bowl LII was a key moment in the Eagles' 41-33 victory that gave them their first National Football League championship since 1960. His strip sack of Tom Brady late in the fourth quarter basically sealed the title for Philadelphia. He's been incredibly durable during his career; the meaningless Week 17 game he skipped due to his ankle injury was the first regular season game he's missed since 2011.

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. The former first-round pick paced the team with a personal-best 9.5 sacks in 2017.
