BRANDON GRAHAM said yesterday he hopes talks toward a deal to keep him with the Eagles are productive, Graham confirming a CSNPhilly.com report that the team has spoken with Graham's agents about a contract to replace the 2010 rookie pact that will expire in the spring. This seemed serendipitous, given that Graham now officially is scheduled for his first start since 2012, in the wake of Trent Cole's left-hand surgery yesterday, in which a plate was inserted to heal a break. Cole is out for the Saturday game at Washington, though defensive coordinator Bill Davis has said he thinks Cole can play in the season finale at the Giants.

BRANDON GRAHAM might start this week, and no one has been cut or fired. Graham's last stint as a starter came in 2012, when Andy Reid cut Jason Babin and then fired defensive line coach Jim Washburn, freeing Graham from the bench. Graham, the team's 2010 first-round draft choice, then managed four sacks in six starts. But the following offseason brought Bill Davis and a 3-4 defense. With Connor Barwin signed to play one outside linebacker position, Graham got stuck behind Trent Cole, who currently sits second on the franchise's all-time sack list behind Reggie White.

More than seven months after the Eagles invested a first-round pick in Marcus Smith, the team still does not know what position he will play in the future. "I'm not positive right now," defensive coordinator Bill Davis said Tuesday. "I would say outside [linebacker] first, but I still think the jury's out on him. " A defensive end at Louisville, Smith was drafted as an outside linebacker, where he played during training camp and the preseason. The Eagles moved Smith to inside linebacker after Mychal Kendricks was injured in Week 2. They kept him there throughout the season before he returned to the outside on Tuesday because of Trent Cole's broken hand.

Outside linebacker Trent Cole fractured a bone in his hand against the Cowboys on Sunday night, an NFL source said Monday. It's unclear whether the Eagles veteran will need season-ending surgery. Even if he doesn't, Cole would be a long shot to play against the Washington Redskins on Saturday. Cole was unavailable for comment after the game. Eagles coach Chip Kelly said he didn't have an update on Cole at his Monday news conference. If Cole is sidelined, Brandon Graham would start at the "Predator" outside linebacker spot opposite Connor Barwin.

MARK SANCHEZ isn't known for his long passes but - when it comes to photos - he can bomb with the best of them. Yesterday, Trent Cole posted an Instagram photo showing he and Jason Peters getting IVs before tangling with the Seahawks. "Getting the fluids to full," wrote Cole. Sanchez, as you can see, decided it would be fun to crash the party. It's a shame he didn't show up for the game. In another tweet, Cole, an avid hunter, wrote: "QBs today and whitetails tomorrow.

SELDOM DOES a game leave you wondering exactly what it was that happened. Really, are the Seahawks better than the Eagles? So much better that they traveled 3,000 miles and won at a site where the Eagles had not lost a regular-season game in two Halloweens? Maybe. It's hard to be sure. Ambiguity after a close contest: That is the mark of two fine football teams. It is a sign that those two teams should meet again in the postseason. Now both 9-4, a rematch between the conference's most explosive offense and its stingiest defense is deliciously possible.

TRENT COLE remembers maneuvering his way around a pile of linemen, trying to find a path to the ballcarrier. Seven Eagles defenders had clashed with Seattle's offensive front at the line of scrimmage, Philadelphia's 15-yard line. Initially, the Seahawks' first-down running attempt didn't appear as if it would amount to much of anything. Maybe a yard. "Everybody was up and the pile was moving," Cole recalled this week of the 2011 play. "And how come this man comes popping up out of the pile with God-dang 15 people on him?

AFTER THE Eagles' 33-10 Thanksgiving Day rout of the Dallas Cowboys, defensive end Fletcher Cox got a text from a longtime friend, a guy living back home in Yazoo City, Miss. The friend had just seen Cox chase down Dallas wideout Cole Beasley on a screen. "He didn't know I could open up and chase a screen down. That kind of surprised him," Cox said yesterday, as the Eagles started to think about Sunday's matchup with the Seattle Seahawks. Practice resumes today. This has been the year of "I didn't know you could do that!"

ARLINGTON, Texas - Chip Kelly said the Eagles aren't "into statements. " The coach is always wary of labels, and despite the Eagles' dominating, 33-10 win over the Dallas Cowboys in front of a national audience, he found no reason to support the notion that his team made a statement on Thanksgiving. But some of the Eagles players, particularly on defense, had no trouble taking the bait. The defensive line chirped all week about earning respect. Fletcher Cox, Bennie Logan, and Cedric Thornton said they didn't think the Cowboys' offensive line was as invincible as some have suggested.
