Defensive end Brandon Graham is active for the Eagles tonight and appears set to get his first playing time since tearing his anterior cruciate ligament in December.

Graham was activated off the Physically Unable to Perform list Saturday. He has practiced with the team for two weeks and will likely be used in a limited role as he gets back into playing shape. The Eagles obviously want to see production from last year's number one pick but don't want to see another injury.

With Graham on the active roster tonight fellow defensive end Juqua Parker is inactive. He has been limited due to a high ankle sprain suffered week 2.

Other inactives are: Mike Kafka, Curtis Marsh, Jarrad Page, Julian Vandervelde, Winston Justice and Phillip Hunt.

Who was the better head coach for the Eagles?
Andy Reid. He has won 10 playoff games and been to the Super Bowl.
Buddy Ryan. His defenses were stifling and he embodied the city’s passion.

Notable is that the Eagles have just two quarterbacks active tonight while they go heavy at linebacker, with six active.

The backup offensive linemen are King Dunlap and Jamaal Jackson.
