With all the free time on his hands, Eagles defensive end Brandon Graham has taken up golf.

Graham's skill on the links were on display today at a charity event in Ann Arbor, Mich., to support the Jalen Rose Leadership Academy. Like Rose, Graham is a former Michigan player.

Graham has been doing most of the rehab work on his knee in the Los Angeles area. Eagles coach Andy Reid has said the 2010 first-round pick is not expected to be ready when the season begins.

Graham told the Associated Press he is to see Dr. James Andrews this week and hopes to be cleared to practice in September.

“It’s kind of benefiting me in my situation,” said Graham, who says he’s close to full health. “But I know my other players want to get back and get to work and I’m all about that.”

As for his golf game, Graham said he played two weeks straight to get ready for the charity event and before that was playing about twice a month.

“One thing is, I do hit it straight,” Graham insisted.

Graham, wearing basketball shoes and apparel, then approached the first tee. He sent the ball about 50 yards to the right in a bunker.
