Former Michigan football player and current Philadelphia Eagles defensive end, Brandon Graham, has added a bit of weight to his frame since coming down with an injury.

Graham, the Eagles 2010 1st round pick, has been nursing a torn ACL since last December. As a result, Graham has been in has recovery mode, not doing a lot of lifting and his weight has jumped from 270 to 290 pounds.

According to, the reason behind his weight gain is due to the fact he has been eating a lot of Philly Cheese Steaks.

“You know what got me real big? The Philly cheesesteaks,” said Graham, who lives within crutching distance from Jim’s Steaks, at 4th and South Streets. “Jim’s? That’s all I eat.”

How many cheesesteaks? ”One. A whole one. Now, I eat a half one. Then I’ll save it,” Graham said. “That’s my big thing: I can’t save anything. When I cook something, I want to eat it all right there.”

On Monday, Graham was eligible to come of the Eagles Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list. Meaning, “he has a 21 day window to return or he will be relegated to Injured Reserve.”

If Graham doesn’t stay away from Philly’s finest food, he may have no other choice but to move to defensive tackle.
