The Eagles did not activate defensive end Brandon Graham on Saturday, so he won't play against the Dallas Cowboys.

The team had until 4 p.m. if it wanted to put Graham on the 53-man roster and make him eligible for Sunday's game. Graham remains on the physically-unable-to-perform list. This week, he went through his first practices with the team this season 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 injured reserve. If the Eagles activate Graham, they will have to release someone to make room on the roster.

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

'Boys cut Choice. Dallas waived injured running back Tashard Choice on Saturday. Rookie linebacker Bruce Carter was activated from the non-football injury list and will likely make his NFL debut against the Eagles.

Choice suffered a shoulder injury in the third quarter last Sunday against St. Louis.
