Eagles’ practice:

latest news at page 1:
    Getty Eagles DT Jordan Davis didn't mince words: his favorite thing to do is "hit" people on the football field. Don’t believe the hype. That was the message from Jordan Davis regarding his viral rep against Cam Jurgens. The 6-foot-6, 340-pounder wasn’t trying to embarrass anybody at the Philadelphia Eagles’ live practice; honestly, Davis wished it never happened. The clip wasn’t a true representation of what has been a grueling back-and-forth between Davis and Jurgens at training camp. The cameras just got a very one-sided rep, according to Davis. Those two guys are the future anchors of the offensive and defensive lines in Philly. “I hate it honestly. I feel like it’s very one-sided,” Davis told reporters. “You see one rep but you don’t see Cam blocking me and getting me at practice, and getting me in the other reps. I always say looks can be deceiving. You know, one rep and it goes viral or whatever, but Cam is holding his own. He’s a very good player and it’s just good competition, it’s iron on iron, so...
    After a practice rep against teammate Cam Jurgens went viral, Eagles rookie defensive tackle Jordan Davis decided to set the record straight.  Over the weekend, a video surfaced of Philadelphia Eagles rookie defensive tackle Jordan Davis having his way with fellow rookie Cam Jurgens. In it, we can see Davis driving Jurgens back, eliciting a reaction from social media and those in attendance at Lincoln Financial Field. Jordan Davis against Cam Jurgens. Goodness gracious. pic.twitter.com/qQegccIbev — Ryan Fowler (@_RyanFowler_) August 8, 2022 When asked about it, however, Davis had a different reaction than most expected. Davis said he “hates it” and spoke highly of Jurgens following the incident, referencing how that one play does not define Jurgens. Jordan Davis on the reaction to the viral clip of him bullrushing Cam Jurgens: “I hate it.” Said that it’s just one rep and isn’t fair to Jurgens, who has beaten him in other 1 on 1 battles. — Brandon Lee Gowton (@BrandonGowton) August 10, 2022 If anything, that speaks to not only Jurgens as it’s just one...
    Getty Eagles WR A.J. Brown has been flashing at training camp, on the field and in press conferences. Philadelphia Eagles star A.J. Brown does everything full speed, no stop. And he does it with a shameless thousand-watt smile. It makes him a little hard to read sometimes, which is exactly why he’s such a tough cover. You see, Brown prides himself on running through the catch and bulldozing anyone in his way. That could be via a nasty stiff arm, or two-man foot race. The one-time Pro Bowler is going to whatever it takes to win the matchup. “I think anytime the ball is in my hands, it could be an explosive play, that’s how I think,” Brown told reporters. “I’m always … whenever I got the ball in my hand, how can I turn this into 10 extra yards? That’s my first initial thought. I gotta get 10 every time I touch it, and if I actually get 10, I may even go for 30.” Brown has been the best wide receiver at training camp, not to...
    PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Eagles fans are ready to rock and roll for a new season. The team held its annual open practice Sunday night and CBS3 caught up with fans. It may have only been practice but Sunday had all the feels of game day.

    Getty Miles Sanders and Boston Scott were part of a very effective Eagles backfield committee in 2021. So much for those goofy-looking Guardian Caps protecting players from head injuries. Philadelphia Eagles running back Boston Scott was listed out with a concussion on Saturday, an injury likely stemming from a hard collision with Marcus Epps at a recent practice. Scott will enter the concussion protocol and miss a few days of training camp. He becomes the third Eagles player to suffer a head injury this summer, joining left tackles Jordan Mailata and Andre Dillard. Those two guys got knocked out of the team’s first fully padded practice on August 2 on undisclosed plays. Meanwhile, rookie tight end Grant Calcaterra remained out with a hamstring injury. Receivers DeVonta Smith (groin) and Greg Ward (toe) were missing in action at Saturday’s session. The Eagles have three practices and two walkthroughs left before the preseason opener on August 12 at Lincoln Financial Field. Real football is almost back.

    Getty Eagles left tackle Jordan Mailata celebrates a big play with Kenny Gainwell. The Philadelphia Eagles were missing two key starters on Day 6 of training camp. Receiver DeVonta Smith suffered a groin injury, while left tackle Jordan Mailata was out with a concussion. Luckily, they aren’t expected to miss too much time. The team also lost backup left tackle Andre Dillard to a concussion. That left veteran Le’Raven Clark guarding Jalen Hurts’ blindside at Thursday’s practice. Head coach Nick Sirianni revealed the injuries happened at Tuesday’s session, although he couldn’t pinpoint the exact play. “I don’t know the exact play on either of them, and neither of the guys were able to say the exact play that happened on either of them,” Sirianni told reporters. “So obviously it’s football and there are no more collisions than the O-line and D-line have, right? They’re wearing the Guardian Caps because they have the most collisions. Because we could say, ‘Well, we’re not live’ but the O-line and the D-line are live every single play, and so I don’t know...

    Getty Eagles starter Jalen Hurts is leading a Philly offense loaded with rookies and unknowns coming into the 2021 season. Training camp is a hot, sweaty football laboratory for the Philadelphia Eagles. It’s where players like Jalen Hurts get to experiment. The first-team offense isn’t trying to embarrass the defense. Why would they want to destroy their confidence? According to Hurts, the point is to test out new “things and tools” he can use in a game setting. He’ll go back and watch the tape to see what worked and what failed. Summer practices are supposed to be fun. “In training camp, we’re not scheming for our defense,” Hurts told reporters. “We’re just running plays and we’re trying to get the ball to the most advantageous person to make a play. So it’s not like we’re trying to beat our defense, or anything like that. “We’re just trying to be efficient and put the ball where it needs to be. So to answer your question, I think practice is definitely a place where you try stuff, figure it...

    PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The first peek at Jalen Hurts on the first day of the Philadelphia Eagles’ training camp was his printed image — his eyes covered by cool sunglasses — on the front of coach Nick Sirianni’s green T-shirt. The shirt pairs well with the black “ HURTS SZN ” hat wide receiver A.J. Brown rocked when he arrived at the team’s complex. The message was clear: Yes, the Eagles have the QB’s merch — but they also have his back. The Hurts defenders broke out in numbers Wednesday — as did the few hundred fans that formed an L around the sideline and back of an end zone to watch 58 minutes of practice — to tell critics, the rest of the NFL, any haters that they have faith in their third-year QB. Point made, the Eagles belong to Hurts. “Hey, he’s our quarterback,” Sirianni said Wednesday of his fashion choice. “What a better way to connect with him than to wear his shirt.” Hurts came a long way in his first full season as the starting QB....

    PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Good news for Eagles fans. The countdown to the 2022 NFL season begins Tuesday in Philadelphia as the Eagles report for training camp this morning. The players will get a physical and then have a team meeting with head coach Nick Sirianni. Their first training camp practice will be Wednesday.

    Getty Sam Howell lines up to fire a pass for UNC during a 2021 game against Pitt. Imagine going into a job interview and being asked to shoot a basketball through a mini hoop. Weird but competitive, right? That’s what the Philadelphia Eagles were going for when they asked Sam Howell to perform the carnival act at the 2022 NFL Scouting Combine. Howell, a young gunslinger out of North Carolina, is expected to be one of the first quarterbacks taken in the upcoming draft. He told Senior Bowl reporters that he has the “best arm in the class” while most mock drafts have him slipping into the second round. On Wednesday, Howell joked that he failed the mini-hoop competition so he’s likely off the Eagles’ draft board. “That was probably the craziest thing I’ve had to do so far,” Howell told reporters, via Trevor Sikkema of Pro Football Focus. “I only made like two out of five, so probably not high up on their board right now.” #UNC QB Sam Howell was asked if he’s had any strange...
    Getty Quarterback Nate Sudfeld #7 of the Philadelphia Eagles. Nate Sudfeld could be vying for a second shiny championship ring if San Francisco advances to the Super Bowl. The former third-string quarterback for the Philadelphia Eagles was elevated from the practice squad to the 49ers’ active roster. Sudfeld isn’t expected to suit up for Sunday night’s NFC Championship Game, according to Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area. The 49ers play the Los Angeles Rams on January 30 at 6:30 p.m. in the conference final. Sudfeld sits behind starter Jimmy Garoppolo and rookie Trey Lance on the quarterback depth chart. He would get a ring whether he plays or not should the 49ers win it all. The 28-year-old didn’t appear in a game this season for the 49ers and hasn’t attempted a pass since 2020. Sudfeld was part of a tanking controversy when he replaced Jalen Hurts in the fourth quarter of a three-point game. He went 5-of-12 (41.7%) for 32 yards with an interception in that one while taking two sacks. New York Giants players vented their...
    Getty Former Alabama safety Jared Mayden makes a play in college. He had four interceptions in 2019. The Philadelphia Eagles started the slow climb to the mountaintop by handing out 11 futures contracts. Teams use these deals to claim the rights to players they feel might make an impact next season while keeping them off waivers. The biggest names on the list included guard/tackle Kayode Awosika, defensive end Cameron Malveaux, linebacker JaCoby Stevens, tight end Noah Togiai. All four of those guys saw significant action during the 2021 campaign and combined for 177 non-special-teams snaps. Players on futures contracts don’t count against the 53-man roster limit and earn the veteran minimum.

    Getty The Eagles are expected to activate veteran Richard Rodgers to the 53-man roster for the playoffs. Dallas Goedert has blossomed as the starter ever since taking over for Zach Ertz. The fourth-year tight end talked honestly about wanting to be number one on the Philadelphia Eagles’ depth chart prior to the trade and showed it. He’s creeping up on a 1,000-yard season: 830 yards on 56 receptions with four touchdowns. More importantly, Goedert has stayed healthy which had been a major concern when he inked an insane $57 million contract. It’s worked out amazingly well. He has missed only two games in 2021 (COVID-19, concussion) excluding a healthy scratch in Week 18. However, the Eagles are dealing with a new problem behind Goedert after Tyree Jackson’s ACL tear forced him on injured reserve. The Eagles have rookie Jack Stoll installed as the backup tight end, with plans to elevate veteran Richard Rodgers from the practice squad. Noah Togiai remains in the mix after seeing 24 snaps last week against Dallas. “As far as the plan for the...
    Getty Eagles defensive end Josh Sweat is officially questionable for Week 10 with a concussion. The injury report was relatively clean for the Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday, minus one important defensive starter. Josh Sweat missed his second straight practice with an undisclosed non-COVID illness. Hopefully, it’s nothing too serious and he’s cleared in time for Sunday’s 1 p.m. kickoff. Sweat has been a breakout star at defensive end in his fourth season. The 6-foot-5, 265-pounder is tied for the team lead in sacks (7.5) with Javon Hargrave while ranking second in quarterback hits (18) and tackles for loss (7). Sweat continues to establish himself as one of the Eagles’ most dominant pass rushers after inking a three-year, $40 million contract extension on September 18. His presence has been vital ever since Pro Bowler Brandon Graham landed on injured reserve. “I’ve come a long way. I’m still going,” Sweat said after signing his deal. “I’ve got a lot more I want to do. That’s the small part to me. Now I want to be the best.” Meanwhile, Miles Sanders...
    Getty The Eagles are keeping all three quarterbacks - Jalen Hurts, Gardner Minshew, Reid Sinnett - in separate rooms due to the recent COVID-19 spike. The Philadelphia Eagles are set to play a rather meaningless football game with their starters on the bench. Kickoff is slated for 8:15 p.m. on Saturday night against the hated Dallas Cowboys. The debate all week has been whether Nick Sirianni would play his starters in the regular-season finale. It doesn’t appear as if he will. According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Jalen Hurts will see “few if any snaps” in Week 18. Hurts told reporters that he was expecting for “business as usual.” That means Gardner Minshew should see plenty of burn. NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo agreed with Schefter, adding that Minshew might start Saturday’s game. Remember, Hurts is still healing from a high ankle sprain suffered on November 28 in a 13-7 loss to the New York Giants. “I continue to expect a lot of Gardner Minshew if not for the entire game tonight as well as a bunch of starters resting...
    Getty New York Giants quarterback Clayton Thorson. The New York Giants will be without both Daniel Jones and Mike Glennon on Sunday, leaving an already spotty quarterback group extremely thin for the season finale vs. Washington. To help counteract their lack of depth, the team has made multiple moves at the position. On January 8, New York announced four roster moves in total, including the promotion of Brian Lewerke to the active roster and the signing of Clayton Thorson to the team’s practice squad. Other moves include wideout Alex Bachman being activated from the practice squad and fellow receiver David Sills being signed to the active roster. Sills, a former quarterback phenom who verbally committed to play for USC at just 13 years old, could presumably jump safety Logan Ryan as the team’s emergency signal-caller on Sunday. However, the majority, if not all of his snaps, will continue to come at receiver with Kadarius Toney (shoulder) and John Ross (knee) both ruled out. David Sills was one of the most highly recruited middle school QBs ever! — Tom...
    Getty Ex-Eagles quarterback Clayton Thorson. When the New York Giants take the field at MetLife this Sunday for their season finale, they’ll be doing so without the services of their stopgap solution under center. As expected, the team officially ruled out Mike Glennon (wrist) on their final injury report after the veteran failed to practice all week. Glennon has started four of the last five games at quarterback for the Giants, going winless over that span. With Daniel Jones already on the mend, the Giants will once again turn their offense over to Jake Fromm. The former Georgia standout recently made his first career NFL start for the team in Week 16, but lasted less than three quarters before being yanked after a 25-yard, one interception performance. Beyond Fromm, the lone in-house option the Giants have is practice squad quarterback Brian Lewerke. However, that could soon change. On January 7, the Giants opened their doors to a familiar face, hosting Clayton Thorson for a visit/workout in East Rutherford. While a signing may not be “necessarily imminent” at this...
    Getty Former Browns pass rusher Cameron Malveaux has two career sacks in four NFL seasons. It’s been a wild ride for Cameron Malveaux during his five-year NFL career. Going from an undrafted rookie fighting for a practice-squad spot to a rotational player on a playoff team hasn’t been easy. But the newest pass rusher for the Philadelphia Eagles did it. And did it his way. Malveaux (6-foot-5, 265 pounds) has seen 39 defensive snaps over the past two weeks while recording two tackles and two quarterback hits. He took time out of his busy day on Thursday to talk about his journey to this point, including the crazy way he wound up on the Eagles’ roster. It started because of his relationship with senior defensive assistant Jeremiah Washburn. The two had gotten to know each other when Washburn was the assistant offensive line coach for the Miami Dolphins. He gave Malveaux a phone call a few weeks after Eagles’ training camp ended and eventually brought the 27-year-old defensive end in for a workout. It helped that Washburn also...
    Getty Landon Dickerson and Jordan Mailata are building good chemistry along the left side of the Eagles' offensive line. It’s a short work week for the Philadelphia Eagles with kickoff just 72 hours away. The team is swiftly putting final preparations on the gameplan following the NFL’s controversial decision to flex their matchup against the Dallas Cowboys to Saturday night at 8:15 p.m. The Eagles made eight roster moves to start the week and elevated four practice-squad players: T Kayode Awosika, WR John Hightower, S Jared Mayden, CB Mac McCain. They also added defensive end Cameron Malveaux and linebacker JaCoby Stevens to the 53-man roster as COVID-19 replacements. Remember, 12 key players hit the Reserve/COVID-19 list. Philadelphia wasn’t done moving and shaking, though. The Eagles announced tight end Noah Togiai and receiver KeeSean Johnson had been activated back to the practice squad from the COVID-19 list. Meanwhile, three offensive starters missed Wednesday’s practice: RT Lane Johnson, RB Miles Sanders, LG Landon Dickerson. Sanders isn’t expected to play, but keep an eye on Dickerson (thumb) and Johnson (rest/knee). The...
    Getty Eagles RB Jordan Howard is trending in the right direction as he rehabs from a neck stinger. The Philadelphia Eagles are going to need a heavy dose of Jordan Howard since Miles Sanders has been ruled out for Week 17. The one-time Pro Bowl running back has been nursing a neck stinger, but he was a limited participant at Thursday’s practice. That’s a real good sign considering kickoff is 72 hours away. He was listed “DNP” (did not participate) on Wednesday. Howard has been “working like crazy” to return, according to head coach Nick Sirianni, and the team’s training staff is doing their best to get him ready. The Eagles have veteran Boston Scott and rookie Kenny Gainwell behind Howard on the depth chart. They also inked Kerryon Johnson to the practice squad as an extra insurance policy. Sanders broke his hand during last week’s 34-10 win over the New York Giants, but there is no plan to place him on injured reserve. Sirianni compared Sanders’ injury to what Marlon Mack endured in 2019 with the Indianapolis...
    Getty Kerryon Johnson of the Detroit Lions The search for Miles Sanders’ replacement lasted less than two days. The Philadelphia Eagles signed Kerryon Johnson to the practice squad on Tuesday in an effort to stack the running back depth chart. The move was expected and predicted in this space. Johnson has familiarity with Nick Sirianni’s offense having endured the majority of training camp in South Philly. The team waived him with an injury designation (knee) in late August. Now he returns and could see immediate action with Sanders and Jordan Howard banged up. Johnson, a former second-rounder out of Auburn, racked up 1,225 rushing yards and another 527 receiving yards in 34 games for the Detroit Lions. The 5-foot-11, 211-pounder has 11 total touchdowns and last saw game action on September 26, 2021 on special teams as a member of the San Francisco 49ers. WOOP!!

    Getty Todd Gurley tries to fend off Ahkello Witherspoon of the San Francisco 49ers during a 2019 game. Gurley's name has surfaced as a possible re-addition to the Los Angeles Rams. Miles Sanders has a broken hand and won’t play in Week 17 against Washington. Philadelphia Eagles head coach Nick Sirianni confirmed the injury on Monday, adding that the team isn’t placing Sanders on injured reserve. The starting running back will be “re-evaluated after a week,” according to Sirianni, and there is no timetable for a return. The Eagles are holding out hope that Sanders can return, but bone fractures can take at least a month to heal depending on the severity of the break. “Miles did break his hand and, obviously, he’ll be out this week and then we will re-evaluate after a week,” Sirianni said. “We are hopeful we can get him back at some point this season, so he will not be going to IR.” "Boston (Scott) is a guy that when called upon always comes through and I have no doubt he will do...
    Giants second-year tackle Matt Peart tore the ACL in his left knee on Sunday in Philadelphia. He is done for the season, and the injury could impact his third NFL season, as well. Peart started in place of Nate Solder, who is on the COVID list. He was engaged with the Eagles’ Cameron Malveaux when his left knee gave out in the first quarter. Korey Cunningham replaced him for the rest of the game. Peart, 24, limped out of the building postgame without crutches, but that was obviously not an indication of good news to come. Meanwhile, safety Julian Love was placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list Monday, and so was practice squad DB Ka’dar Hollman. The team cut center Evan Boehm from the practice squad, too. Captain Saquon Barkley also skirted the media for a second straight day. He didn’t talk after Sunday’s pathetic loss to the Eagles. Devontae Booker was the only non-quarterback to speak on behalf of the offense. Then on Monday, tight end Evan Engram represented the offense...
    Getty All-Pro tackle Lane Johnson would be a perfect fit for the Cincinnati Bengals. With two offensive linemen – first, Landon Dickerson and now Andre Dillard – entering the NFL’s COVID-19 protocols in consecutive days it’s fair to wonder if an outbreak is on the horizon. The players share the same meeting rooms and stay around each other at the Philadelphia Eagles’ practice facility. Dickerson tested positive on Sunday so there is still hope he’ll turn back a negative test prior to kickoff. Dillard seems like a longshot to dress, though, since he tested positive on Monday. There has been no indication from the team that anyone else on the offensive line has been infected. Then again, players are tested daily and a league-wide spike in positive cases has everyone on edge.

    Getty Eagles QB Jalen Hurts got sacked twice during a 41-21 loss to the Cowboys on Sept. 27, 2021 in Dallas. The Philadelphia Eagles were off on Saturday, but the team released an estimated practice report ahead of their Week 15 matchup. Nine previously injured players were listed as full participants, including quarterback Jalen Hurts. That marks two straight days for Hurts as a full go. Despite limping earlier in the week, it is certainly looking more and more likely that he’ll be under center on December 21. Hurts is dealing with a high ankle sprain – thought to be a 2-4 week injury – and Gardner Minshew had split the reps with him during recent walk-throughs and practices. “He was full today. He’s questionable, but he’s trending in the right direction and we’re hopeful,” Sirianni told reporters on December 17. ” He’s [been] preparing like he’s going all week, so I thought he had a great practice today.” Saturday injury report The Eagles participated in a walkthrough.

    Washington put Taylor Heinicke on the NFL’s COVID-19/reserve list Friday, making the team’s quarterback plan for the upcoming game at Philadelphia a complete uncertainty. Based on updated league rules, Heinicke could still play if he tests negative twice this weekend and remains asymptomatic. Backup Kyle Allen entered coronavirus protocol on Tuesday and also remains a possibility if he is cleared. Practice squad QB Kyle Shurmur would be in line to start if neither Heinicke nor Allen is available. He played at Vanderbilt and is the son of Denver Broncos offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur. Washington also signed Garrett Gilbert off New England’s practice squad on Friday. Gilbert has one NFL start with Dallas but is familiar with coach Ron Rivera and offensive coordinator Scott Turner from their time together in 2018 with the Carolina Panthers. With the addition of Heinicke and the removal of center Keith Ismael from the COVID-19 list, Washington has 21 players unavailable for virus-related reasons, including two players on injured reserve and two on the practice squad. The defense and special teams units have been decimated, with...
    Getty The 2021 NFL season is down to its final few weeks. While teams jockey for playoff positioning, they’re also trying to put the best team on the field each week in these important games. At this rate, 14 weeks into the season, every team is banged up. So, every team is on the lookout for possible insurance policies to help solidify their teams, just in case. In the Broncos case, they signed two players to their practice squad, a former first-round pick, and pro-bowler, in defensive back Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, and intriguing wide receiver, Travis Fulgham.

    Getty The Eagles signed former Fresno State standout KeeSean Johnson to their practice squad. The Philadelphia Eagles placed receiver Quez Watkins and running back Jason Huntley on the Reserve/COVID-19 list. No corresponding roster moves were announced, although Watkins’ potential absence opens up the door. The second-year burner from Southern Miss out-snapped every receiver on the team in Week 13. Watkins saw 55 offensive snaps against the New York Jets, compared to 48 for Jalen Reagor and 44 for DeVonta Smith. J.J. Arcega-Whiteside had 14 and that was it. The Eagles could make veteran Greg Ward a bigger part of the gameplan or they could elevate a practice squad receiver. John Hightower would be the most logical option considering he’s been protected multiple times this season. The 2020 fifth-rounder hasn’t materialized into a reliable target and last played in Week 9 (November 7) when he fumbled a kickoff return. Philadelphia also has Deon Cain and KeeSean Johnson patiently waiting for opportunities. Neither player has seen any game action since 2020. They do bring considerable speed and some fun intrigue...
    Getty Eagles center Jason Kelce attempted to fire up his teammates with an emotional speech. All-Pro center Jason Kelce hurt his knee in Week 12 and was due to be re-evaluated. Philadelphia Eagles head coach Nick Sirianni promised an update on Wednesday, December 1. In the meantime, the team brought in a familiar face for a tryout. Luke Juriga was at the practice facility and could join the practice squad assuming he’s healthy. The undrafted center out of Western Michigan was on the Eagles’ training camp roster before getting waived with an injury designation on August 21. Juriga (6-foot-3, 298 pounds) was initially signed in 2020 and saw action in one game. He played 14 snaps at center in relief of Kelce. The Eagles are likely bringing him back as an insurance policy in case Kelce is out for an extended period. Or maybe they already know the results of Kelce’s MRI and plan to announce it. The Eagles have only one backup center on the active depth chart in Nate Herbig. And he may need to start...
    Getty Darius Slay high-fives members of the Eagles in a 2021 game. A familiar face is back on the Philadelphia Eagles’ roster. The team scooped Mac McCain off the waiver wire after he was released by the Denver Broncos on November 23. He had been on the Eagles’ practice squad prior to Week 10. McCain hasn’t appeared in an NFL game since going undrafted out of North Carolina A&T in April. He started 29 games for the Aggies from 2017-19 and earned All-Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference honors in all three seasons. The 6-foot, 175-pounder left school with 113 tackles, eight interceptions and 22 pass break-ups. North Carolina A&T opted out of the 2020 campaign over COVID-19 concerns which plummeted McCain’s draft stock.

    Getty Eagles LB Davion Taylor has been making his impact felt in Year 2 after limited snaps in his rookie season. The Philadelphia Eagles skipped a normal practice on Wednesday in favor of a walk-through. Head coach Nick Sirianni wanted to let his players’ bodies heal since their late bye week doesn’t come until December 12. Sirianni traded an extra day of physical rest for a mental workout. He stressed “full speed to the snap” in the walk-through while making sure guys were “100% fresh” for Sunday’s matchup against the New Orleans Saints. The team still put out an estimated practice report and listed three players out, including defensive tackle Fletcher Cox (rest), linebacker Davion Taylor (knee), tight end Dallas Goedert (concussion). Cox has been taking days off early in the week throughout the season so nothing to read into there. Goedert needs to clear the concussion protocol after getting knocked out from a borderline illegal hit in Week 10. He’ll likely be a game-time decision. Taylor’s name was an unexpected addition to the injury report, although the...
    Getty Miles Sanders could suit up versus New Orleans if his injured ankle holds up at practice this week. The Philadelphia Eagles own the top rushing attack in the NFC. Imagine that. Three straight weeks of pound-and-ground football has them averaging 144.3 yards per game, third-best in the NFL behind the Baltimore Ravens and Cleveland Browns. Nick Sirianni’s team has racked up 761 of their 1,443 total rushing yards since that brutal Week 7 loss in Las Vegas. More impressively, the Eagles have done it with their starting running back on injured reserve. Now Miles Sanders is set to return after getting activated to the 21-day practice window. There’s a chance he could suit up this week against the New Orleans Saints, according to Sirianni. He’ll be re-inserted as RBI assuming he looks healthy enough in practice. “He’s got to go through practice and see how he looks,” Sirianni told reporters. “If he looks healthy, he’s definitely [in]. He’s one of our best players. He’s definitely going to go if he looks healthy.” Coach Sirianni provides an update...
    Getty Jordan Howard has the third-most rushing yards in the NFL since 2016. Jordan Howard was arguably the best running back throughout training camp. He arrived at the Philadelphia Eagles’ facility nine pounds lighter and fully recovered from a 2019 shoulder injury. Howard also looked like a more complete running back, catching the ball out of the backfield and picking up blocks. But Howard’s stellar summer wasn’t enough to earn a spot on the 53-man roster. The Eagles surprisingly cut the 225-pounder, then placed him on the practice squad after he cleared waivers. Three months later, Howard is finally on the 53 and serving as the team’s feature back. It’s been a long time coming, filled with some good days and a “lot of bad days,” according to Howard. “It was very challenging,” Howard told reporters. “First day I’m on the practice squad, I’m on the look team, it’s just like ‘dang this is my reality right now’ and then game days were pretty tough for me but just tried to be there and support the guys.” Jordan...
    ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — The Denver Broncos host the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday but the games have already begun. Two months after losing cornerback Mac McCain III when the Eagles plucked him from their practice squad, the Broncos on Wednesday returned the favor, signing McCain off waivers from Philadelphia.

Before Denver put in a waiver claim, Eagles coach Nick Sirianni was asked about McCain and fellow rookie cornerback Kay Vincent Jr., a seventh-rounded draft pick the Broncos traded to the Eagles recently for a sixth-round pick even though Vincent didn’t play a snap in Denver. “They’re both doing well, Sirianni replied. “They’re both doing well. We did have to cut Mac yesterday just to make room on our roster for Jordan Howard, our running back. Mac was...
    Getty Landon Dickerson and Jordan Mailata are building good chemistry along the left side of the Eagles' offensive line. Jordan Mailata was pretty proud of his one-liner after Wednesday’s practice. The protector of Jalen Hurts’ blindside made it a point to call out his joke to reporters just in case no one heard him. And Mailata’s laughter was contagious as he discussed his “blooming bromance” with rookie Landon Dickerson. “We’re big boppers. He’s strong as hell,” Mailata told reporters. “He’s such a funny character. Our bromance is blooming. Get it? Blooming. I’m sorry. I thought that was funny. It’s awesome playing next to him.” The comment was an obvious reference to Nick Sirianni’s decision to flash a flower picture at a recent team meeting. He compared the Philadelphia Eagles to roots growing under the soil, an analogy meant to indicate their development in his first year running the show. The media blasted him for it, although players publicly supported Sirianni.

Mac has done a good job, especially on...
    Getty Tyree Jackson was a preseason standout for the Eagles before fracturing his back at practice and hitting IR. The Philadelphia Eagles added some legitimate offensive juice to the active roster 24 hours prior to kickoff. The team announced tight end Tyree Jackson was activated to the 53. They also elevated running back Jordan Howard and receiver John Hightower from the practice squad. Head coach Nick Sirianni hinted at Jackson being ready to go during his latest media availability, saying “we’re still sorting through some things.” The converted college quarterback caught two passes for 32 yards during a two-minute drill in the first preseason game, then fractured his back at a training camp practice. The organization, especially general manager Howie Roseman, remains very high on him. “If he’s going to look like he did during training camp, like, that’s going to be a player for us,” Roseman told reporters on October 15. “But he’s got to show it in games. And this is an opportunity for him to come back and for us to see that. We don’t...
    Getty Jalen Hurts and Henry Ruggs catch up at the Eagles-Raiders game. The two were teammates at Alabama. The Philadelphia Eagles were missing four players at the first practice ahead of Week 9. Defensive tackle Fletcher Cox (knee/rest), wide receiver Jalen Reagor (ankle), defensive tackle Javon Hargrave (shoulder) highlighted the injury report. All three starters, along with wide receiver J.J. Arcega-Whiteside (ankle), were listed DNP (did not participate). Seeing Cox’s name on there is nothing new as he usually takes veteran rest days, although the knee issue was a new development. Hargrave battled a shoulder injury all last week and played versus Detroit (31 snaps, or 50%). Reagor’s injury is thought to be a more serious one. He twisted his ankle badly on the Eagles’ first scoring drive and left on a cart. Head coach Nick Sirianni didn’t have an immediate update on the second-year receiver. “We’ll see what happens this week,” Sirianni said on November 1. “We’re hopeful for this week, but we’ll see as the week progresses.” Wednesday injury report pic.twitter.com/GYZMnUqShI — Philadelphia Eagles (@Eagles) November...
    Getty Jerry Jacobs tries to make a play on a Rams receiver in 2021. The Detroit Lions are looking for their first win of the 2021 NFL season, and finding a way to get it before a much-needed bye week would be a huge accomplishment for the team. Standing in their way this week are the Philadelphia Eagles, a team with only a single win of their own on the season. A big reason the Lions are in the predicament they currently find themselves in has to do with injuries. Detroit’s been dinged-up all year, and this week is no exception as the team looks to find a way to rally the troops for one more week before getting some much needed rest and relaxation.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the Eagles are putting Sanders on injured reserve. Sanders left last Sunday’s loss to the Raiders early and he has not taken part in practice this week. Sanders has 63 carries for 300 yards and 19 catches for 118 yards this season. Eagles head coach Nick Siranni has been criticized for not using Sanders enough in the ground game. He won’t be able to use him at all for the next three games. Kenneth Gainwell and Boston Scott are the other backs on the 53-man roster. Jordan Howard and Jason Huntley are on the practice squad. Eagles will put Miles Sanders on injured reserve originally appeared on Pro Football Talk
    Getty Eagles WR DeVonta Smith has 406 yards and a touchdown in seven games in 2021. Rookie receiver DeVonta Smith missed practice on Wednesday, October 27 with a headache. The top target for the Philadelphia Eagles was one of seven players marked with the DNP designation ahead of Week 8. Good news, there is plenty of time to get everyone healthy before kickoff. Running back Miles Sanders (ankle/foot) is likely to miss the matchup versus Detroit. He was carted off the field in Week 7 and the team is calling him week to week. Head coach Nick Sirianni didn’t want to rule Sanders out, but it seems like a stretch that he’ll play. Sanders could be out two to three weeks, according to Derrick Gunn. “Miles will probably be down,” Sirianni said. “It’s a stretch for him to be up this week, but we’re not ruling anything out yet.” Safety Anthony Harris was seen doing rehab work on a side field. He missed last week’s game with a hand injury, then showed up with an additional groin issue....
