The Eagles are back at practice today after a week off, and as expected, last years first round pick Brandon Graham joined them for the first time this season.

Graham, who has been recovering from ACL surgery, took some reps today with the first team defense as he tried to make his way back to football shape.

"I'm feeling good," said Graham. "No soreness, no nothing. I feel regular."

Graham admitted afterwards that he feels it might be 1-2 weeks before he is in "football shape", but was encouraged by his first practice. He said that he was on the field for about 15 plays, but would not say whether or not he would be active this weekend.

"I'll let the coaches answer that," said Graham. "They're going to watch me this week and hopefully I can get out there. I'm going to push myself and hopefully get up to speed real quick."

It will be interesting to see what the Eagles do with Graham. He has talked nearly every week this season about being out on the field when the Eagles play Dallas, which is this weekend. If the Eagles were to put him on the active roster, they would have to release a player to make room. Speculation has been that safety Jarrad Page may be the one to go, but after the failed trade with Detroit sent Ronnie Brown back to Philadelphia, Brown may be the one that gets the axe. 

In other injury related news, both Jason Peters and Trent Cole were out on the practice field for the Eagles. Peters and Cole have both missed the last two games, but have a good chance of playing this weekend against Dallas.
