Eagles' Graham had December microfracture surgery

It seems that Philadelphia Eagles defensive end Brandon Graham has been recovering by more than just a torn ACL in his right knee this offseason. Graham, drafted in the 1st round of the 2010 draft, also had microfracture surgery on the knee in December, sources confirmed to the Philadelphia Enquirer Wednesday.

Graham confirmed the report, 1st created by, via text message, but turned down further comment.

He then posted a message on his Twitter account that looked to make reference to his recovery:

"I'm not doing interviews with nobody till I am back on the field. Everyone needs to concern about this lockout if anything. I got this!!"

Graham recorded 3 sacks, 13 tackles and two forced fumbles in over 13 games, before his season was cut short versus the Dallas Cowboys in Week 14. Graham's wound was initially deemed to be to his ACL, but when doctors went in to fix the knee it was decided that the more serious microfracture surgery was needed.

While the Eagles had no commentary on the developments, coach Andy Reid said in March that it would be "a true stretch" for Graham to be ready by the Eagles' season opener, which is scheduled for Sunday, Sept. 11 in St. Louis.

Talking to reporters at a recent golf charity event, Graham told the lockout has helped his recovery.

"It is kind of benefiting me in my situation," told Graham, who deemed himself 80 percent healed, according to the Inquirer. "But I know my other players want to get back and get to work and I am all about that."
