The Philadelphia Eagles are preparing for their first playoff game against the New York Giants on Saturday. The Eagles earned the No. 1 seed in the NFC after a 14-3 record, which granted them a bye into the Divisional Round of the NFL Playoffs.

The Eagles hope to be as healthy as possible against a Giants team coming off a huge win last week, and Philly got some great news on that front on Thursday.

Brandon Graham Injury Update

Star defensive end Brandon Graham missed practice on Wednesday with an illness, but he was back on the field on Thursday, providing the Eagles some peace of mind.

Graham has been a force along the Eagles' defensive line this season with career-high 11.0 sacks, 16 QB hits and two forced fumbles. He has spent every season of his career with the Eagles after joining the NFL in 2010.

Graham will be a huge piece in trying to keep Daniel Jones uncomfortable in the pocket after he lit up the Vikings in the Wild Card Round with his legs.

The Eagles are currently 7.5-point home favorites against the Giants this weekend, according to FanDuel Sportsbook's latest NFL odds.
