Alshon Jeffery reportedly has ‘pretty good chance’ to play against Lions

The Philadelphia Eagles have been bitten harder by the injury bug than any team in the NFL through the first two weeks, but the ailment Alshon Jeffery is dealing with does not appear to be serious. Jeffery left in the second quarter of Sunday night’s game against the Atlanta Falcons with a calf injury. He has not practiced this week and is listed as questionable for this Sunday’s matchup with the Detroit Lions, but Elliott Shorr-Parks of 94WIP.com believes the receiver has a “pretty...

Eagles vs. Lions final injury report: Dallas Goedert and Alshon Jeffery questionable, four players ruled out

Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

Some hope?

The Philadelphia Eagles issued their third and final official injury report on Friday in advance of their Week 3 game against the Detroit Lions.

The Eagles ruled the following four players OUT: DeSean Jackson, Timmy Jernigan, Corey Clement, and Jordan Mailata.

Jackson wasn’t able to participate in practice this week. He’s reportedly expected to miss Week 4 in addition to this Sunday. The Eagles are obviously going to miss his deep threat...

Doug Pederson confirms DeSean Jackson will NOT play against Lions

The Eagles’ head coach said he was still optimistic Alshon Jeffery and/or Dallas Goedert may be available.

The Eagles are just a few days away from their Week 3 matchup with the Detroit Lions and head coach Doug Pederson spoke to the media one last time before the contest. He talked about limitations with skill players, the running back rotation and 12-personnel, as well as what he’s seen from Matthew Stafford and the Lions.

Here’s what the head coach had to say:

Eagles Week 3 fantasy football outlook

A potential shootout with the Lions could lead to high fantasy point totals.

While fantasy success for a player is not always directly correlated to actual success for that player’s team (e.g. Saquon Barkley), more often than not, when a team is slumping, you should avoid starting players from that team if you can afford it. With two weeks of the 2019 season in the books, I am going to officially deem the Eagles as slumping. They have looked out of...

The QB Scho Show #33!

The Philadelphia Eagles’ defense has a deep ball problem. Whether it’s being burned by Terry McLaurin in Week 1, or by Calvin Ridley in Week 2, or all the issues they had against go and post routes in 2018, it doesn’t seem to be going away. It’s a significant problem with Matthew Stafford and the Detroit Lions coming to town on Sunday.

Why? Well, I’ll lead off with some thoughts on the Lions passing...

Peter King lists Eagles as his top “gut feel” landing spot for Jalen Ramsey

Interesting!

Jalen Ramsey is expected to suit up for the Jaguars’ Week 3 Thursday Night Football game this evening but there’s talk that Jacksonville could trade their star cornerback as soon as Friday. And now there’s more smoke that the Philadelphia Eagles could be the team trading for Ramsey.

Take a gander at this tweet from Peter King on Thursday afternoon:

Eagles complete their reversal of last week’s practice squad change

Rich Barnes-USA TODAY Sports

Back to the way it was.

A week ago from today, the Philadelphia Eagles promoted practice squad cornerback Craig James to their 53-man roster and signed tight end Alex Ellis back to their practice squad after cutting him.

Now the reversal is complete. The Eagles re-signed Ellis to their 53-man roster earlier this week and now they’ve officially brought James back to their practice squad. All is as it once was. Order has been restored to the galaxy.

He spoke to the media later in the day and discussed their plans for JJ Arcega-Whiteside and Mack Hollins, as well as how Nelson Agholor helped choreograph the offense on Sunday.

Everyone hurt!

The Philadelphia Eagles issued their first official injury report on Wednesday in advance of their Week 3 game against the Detroit Lions. Note that this report is merely an estimation because the Eagles cancelled their practice and instead held a walk-through.

There are a whopping THIRTEEN players listed on the report. That’s 28.3% of the active game day roster and 24.5% of the overall 53-man roster. Not great!
