According to Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquire, Eagles OLB Trent Cole is uncertain to play for the rest of the season due to a broken hand.

The 32-year-old has 6.5 sacks on the season.

Taking his place most likely will be Brandon Graham, the former first round pick has played well in a reserve role, but could be counted on to play a full game on Saturday vs. Washington. Graham will take over the "Predator" position with Cole out.

It's a big chance for Graham, the No. 13 overall pick in 2010, who the Eagles traded up to pick, passing on players like Earl Thomas, Jason Pierre-Paul, Demaryius Thomas and Dez Bryant just to name a few.   Graham has played well this season in a rotational role. He's been very good rushing the pass, posting six sacks and more than holding his own against the run, something that should be tested with extended time.

It will be interesting to see if Cole misses this game and the Eagles miss the playoff, will we ever see Cole in an Eagles uniform again?

The Eagles drafted Marcus Smith to be Cole's heir apparent, but have since moved him to inside linebacker.  Cole's base salary doubles from $5 million this year to $10 million next year, so a The restructure for the 31-year-old could happen to keep him here.
