As mentioned in the Thanksgiving edition of "5 Things To Know Today," linebacker Brandon Graham is almost always the second player – behind tight end James Casey – to arrive at the NovaCare Complex and takes the first player-designated parking spot to the right of the main walkway.
Earlier this week, however, Graham was forced to park in the first player-designated spot to the left of the walkway. That is because safety Earl Wolff and his white Range Rover have staked their claim to what Graham had previously labeled as "that's my spot, man."
"Ooooh, did he say something about that?!" Wolff asked when apprised of his transgression. "I didn't think about that until now."
It's ok, though, Wolff's intentions are not to steal Graham's beloved parking spot, but simply to get to the NovaCare Complex as early as possible so he can get in extra rehab on the knee injury that has kept him out for the past two games.
"I got here extra early (Tuesday), got in at 7:10," Wolff said.
Wait a second, 7:10? Graham said he gets in between 6:45 and 7:00 in the morning.
"He usually does," Wolff said. "Usually when I come in, he's right there (in his spot)."
Getting in earlier in the morning for extra rehab appears to have benefited Wolff, who says he's feeling the best he has since suffering the injury against the Packers.
"Definitely," Wolff said. "As a matter of fact, it's kind of like a 180 compared to how it was last Monday. Last Monday, I was still limping and couldn't really move it, but now I'm getting a full range of motion now."
Wolff has yet to practice this week. Also sidelined on Wednesday were defensive end Clifton Geathers (not injury related), linebacker Najee Goode (hamstring) and wide receiver Jeff Maehl (concussion). Tight end Zach Ertz (shoulder), defensive tackle Bennie Logan (neck) and defensive end Damion Square (back) were full participants.
