Defensive end Brandon Graham won't be activated this week, according to an Eagles source.

The team had until 4 p.m. if they wanted to put Graham on the 53-man roster and make him eligible for Sunday's game, but they will not do so. Graham remains on the Physically Unable to Perform list. He went through his first practices of the season this week, but still needs to work to get into football shape.

The Eagles have two more weeks to evaluate Graham and decide whether to activate him or put him on the injured reserve. He has said he expects to play this season. If the Eagles do activate Graham, they will have to release someone else to make room on the roster.

Graham tore his right anterior cruciate ligament in December and had microfracture surgery to help repair the injury.
