No one wants to see this for the Eagles’ defensive leader.
[UPDATE]: No official word yet, but things aren’t sounding good for Brandon Graham, who has reportedly suffered an Achilles injury. We all know what that means, the Eagles’ veteran will likely miss the remainder of the 2021 season. Graham will reportedly get an MRI on Monday.
From what I’m told Brandon Graham done for the year … Achilles

ORIGINAL STORY BELOW.
First, Brandon Brooks was sidelined with a chest injury, and then Eagles’ veteran defender Brandon Graham went down and stayed down just before halftime in Sunday’s game against the 49ers. Graham was in obvious pain, pounding the ground, and unable to walk off the field under his own power. He was keeping his weight off of his left leg as he was helped to the sideline and was eventually carted back to the locker room.
Graham’s teammates were visibly upset for their leader, with many of them helping him off the field and offering some comforting words as he made his way to the sideline.

Fortunately, the Eagles have some depth on the defensive line, and have seen big leaps in production already this season from guys like Javon Hargrave, Josh Sweat, and Derek Barnett. But still, BG is the lifeblood of the Eagles defense, and his energy is contagious, so any time he’ll have to miss will be felt throughout the locker room.
Here’s hoping for some good news for the fan favorite.
