Eagles vs. Rams inactives: Avonte Maddox is back

Eagles vs. Rams inactives: Avonte Maddox is back

Who’s in and who’s out. The Philadelphia Eagles officially announced the inactives list for their Week 15 game against the Los Angeles Rams. The following seven players have been ruled OUT: Carson Wentz, Sidney Jones, Jordan Hicks, Isaac Seumalo, Timmy Jernigan, Boston Scott, and Matt Pryor. Wentz being out obviously means reigning Super Bowl MVP Nick Foles will start at quarterback. Nate Sudfeld is active as the backup. Rookie defensive back Avonte Maddox is active for the first time since getting hurt against the Saints in Week 11. It’ll be interesting to see where he lines up in...

Eagles Injury Report: Carson Wentz sits out, Avonte Maddox returns

Update on Philadelphia’s injury situation. The Philadelphia Eagles released their first official injury report on Wednesday in advance of their Week 15 game against the Los Angeles Rams. Carson Wentz did not participate in practice, as expected. There’s a report out there that he might not play again during the 2018 season. At the very least, it looks like Nick Foles will start in L.A. this weekend. In addition to Wentz, six other players did not practice: Timmy Jernigan, Jordan Hicks, Lane Johnson, Sidney Jones, Michael Bennett, and Isaac Seumalo. Jernigan continues to deal with...

Jim Schwartz talks Sidney Jones and being patient with his development

Plus, he talks about the challenges facing the Eagles in Los Angeles. The Philadelphia Eagles defense was mediocre against the Cowboys on Sunday, but with injuries absolutely demolishing players at all three levels, it could have been worse. Defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz talked to the media on Tuesday — despite Doug Pederson giving the players a day off — and spoke about his heartbreak for Rasul Douglas and how he evaluates Sidney Jones after an up and down career. Here’s what the defensive coordinator had to say: On number of defensive snaps Schwartz was asked about how the...

The Linc - Sidney Jones needs to shed injury-prone label

Philadelphia Eagles news and links for 12/11/18. Let’s get to the Philadelphia Eagles links ... Sidney Jones’ recurring injury further clouds Eagles’ messy cornerback situation - InquirerThe biggest question right now is Jones. He oozed with potential when the Eagles drafted him in the second round in 2017. He was expected to be a first-round pick before he tore his Achilles tendon at his pro day, and the Eagles were willing to remain patient during what his essentially a redshirt year as a rookie while Jones got healthy. Owner Jeffrey Lurie said it was a worthwhile gamble because...

Corey Clement, Sidney Jones get hurt in Eagles vs. Cowboys game

Corey Clement, Sidney Jones get hurt in Eagles vs. Cowboys game

Well, sure, more injuries... Near the end of the first quarter against the Cowboys, Eagles running back Corey Clement saved an errant snap that bounced off Carson Wentz’s fingertips, but as Clement was being tackled, his body twisted with his right leg was stuck under La’el Collins. The rusher was writhing in pain on the field while holding his right knee after the play, and went into the medical tent on the sideline before heading back into the locker room. (As if the Eagles aren’t used to this narrative.) Clement wasn’t the only Eagle sidelined early, cornerback Sidney Jones was...

Young CB starters are a blessing in disguise for the Eagles

Young CB starters are a blessing in disguise for the Eagles

Win or lose, Sidney Jones and Rasul Douglas have huge opportunities in final quarter of the season Okay, quick: answer this poll. (I’m hoping it looks relatively undecided/unclear) See, Philadelphia’s in a tricky spot when it comes to Draft needs right now — especially for a team laboring around .500. What do I mean? Well, the biggest need on paper is probably defensive tackle — they don’t have a starter next to Fletcher Cox, and we know how much rotational depth matter to Jim Schwartz. But on the field, the weakness has always been the secondary for the defense. And they have...

Eagles at Cowboys Game Predictions

Eagles at Cowboys Game Predictions

Who will win? Screw it. I’ll keep this one simple. The Philadelphia Eagles are going to beat the Dallas Cowboys. Carson Wentz is a better quarterback than Dak Prescott Doug Pederson is better head coach than Jason Garrett. The Eagles are 6-2 at AT&T Stadium since 2010. The Eagles haven’t been swept by the Cowboys since 2012. The Eagles need this game more. Season on the line. Time to get it done. Suggested format: Score prediction: Bold prediction: My predictions: Score prediction: 26-24, Eagles win. Bold prediction: Sidney Jones will have a crucial pick six. Fan predictions: Leave...

Eagles vs. Cowboys Final Injury Report: Two players out, three questionable

Final injury update. The Philadelphia Eagles released their third and final official injury report on Friday in advance of their Week 14 game against the Dallas Cowboys. The Eagles ruled two players out for Sunday’s NFC East matchup: starting linebacker Jordan Hicks and and starting cornerback Jalen Mills. Neither player participated in practice this week. With Hicks out, it’ll be Nigel Bradham starting at middle linebacker once again. Kamu Grugier-Hill and Nathan Gerry will also see playing time. Mills’ absence means Sidney Jones and Rasul Douglas will start at outside corner with...

Three players were ruled out, as expected: starting cornerback Jalen Mills, starting linebacker Jordan Hicks, and safety Avonte Maddox. Maddox told reporters he’s hoping he can return against the Cowboys next Sunday. Mills’ absence means Sidney Jones and Rasul Douglas will be the starters at cornerback. Cre’Von LeBlanc could handle the nickel role. Three players have been ruled...

Eagles Injury Report: Some good news for Philadelphia’s secondary

Update on Philadelphia’s injury situation. The Philadelphia Eagles released their first official injury report on Wednesday in advance of their Week 13 game against the Washington Redskins. The good news is that cornerbacks Sidney Jones, Rasul Douglas, and Chandon Sullivan were full participants in practice. It looks like they’re on track to play this week. Getting Jones and Douglas back means Philadelphia won’t be without their top five corners. Jones and Douglas will likely start on the outside with Cre’Von LeBlanc potentially working as the nickel corner. The undrafted Sullivan,...

Eagles vs. Giants inactives: Rasul Douglas is active but reportedly will not start

Who’s in and who’s out. The Philadelphia Eagles officially announced the inactives list for their Week 12 game against the New York Giants. The following seven players have been ruled OUT: Darren Sproles, Jalen Mills, Sidney Jones, Avonte Maddox, Jordan Hicks, Nate Sudfeld, and Matt Pryor. The mild surprise here is that Rasul Douglas is ACTIVE after failing to practice all week. Derrick Gunn reports Douglas will not be starting, however, so it seems like he’ll only be playing on an emergency basis. Gunn also notes De’Vante Bausby and Chandon Sullivan will be starting on the outside...

Final Injury Report: Eagles could be without top five cornerbacks against Giants

Week 12 NFL injury news. The Philadelphia Eagles released their third and final official injury report on Friday in advance of their Week 12 game against the New York Giants. It’s very possible the Eagles might be without their top five cornerbacks on Sunday. Ronald Darby is on injured reserve and the following players have been ruled out: Jalen MIlls, Avonte Maddox, and Sidney Jones. So that’s four of the top five who will definitely miss the game. It seems like there’s some level of hope that Rasul Douglas might play; he’s ruled questionable to play. But Douglas didn’t...

Eagles release “estimated” injury report ahead of Week 12 Giants game

Update on Philadelphia’s injury situation. The Philadelphia Eagles released their second official injury report on Thursday in advance of their Week 12 game against the New York Giants. Due to the Thanksgiving holiday, this injury report is an estimation. Thursday’s injury report is nearly identical to Wednesday’s version. The only difference is that long snapper Rick Lovato was upgraded from limited participation to full participation. It’s looking like the Eagles might be without their TOP FIVE cornerbacks against the Giants. Jalen Mills, Sidney Jones, Avonte Maddox, and Rasul...
