The Philadelphia Eagles will have a couple of starters back in the fold Monday night when they host the Carolina Panthers at Lincoln Financial Field. Starting left guard Evan Mathis (knee) has returned to the active roster and is expected to start for the Eagles. Safety Nate Allen (hamstring), after missing last week’s win against the Houston Texans, will return to his starting position this week as well.
Before the Philadelphia Eagles took flight for Houston, the team injury report offered more treats than tricks. Running back Darren Sproles (knee) and center Jason Kelce (hernia) were each officially upgraded to probable for the weekend’s road game against the Houston Texans.
As the Philadelphia Eagles head back to work this Sunday in Arizona, they will do so with the possibility of the offensive line getting a bit stronger. It is unknown whether or not running back Darren Sproles or linebacker Mychal Kendricks will be available this weekend. Both players are listed are questionable for Sunday’s afternoon game against the Arizona Cardinals out west.
The Philadelphia Eagles will be without one starting linebacker Sunday night against the New York Giants at Lincoln Financial Field. They could be without two. Mychal Kendricks will miss his fourth straight game and DeMeco Ryans is officially listed as questionable for the Sunday night NFC East battle.
As the Philadelphia Eagles prepare to bounce back with a win, there were no real surprises showing up on the weekly injury report. Linebacker Mychal Kendricks will miss his third straight game, but just about everything else on the Friday injury report was pretty common as the Eagles get ready to host the St. Louis Rams this Sunday afternoon at Lincoln Financial Field.
It is going to be tough to digest this loss for Eagles fans. After the special teams scored twice and the defense added another touchdown, the Eagles only needed their offense to reach the end zone once. Normally this is a given for a Chip Kelly offense, but that was not the case on Sunday.
Linebacker Mychal Kendricks is one of two Eagles players to be ruled out for this weekend’s game. Center Jason Kelce is the other as he begins rehabbing a hernia injury that will force him to miss extended time. Kendricks is still nursing a calf injury that was suffered in the Monday night game in Indianapolis in week two. He did not practice at all this week.
With Mychael Kendricks out of commission for Sunday, the Eagles will have to hope for the best from Emmanuel Acho or Casey Matthews. Acho has not been seen on the team’s official depth chart but he may be able to get the start over Matthews.
The most important goal of the preseason in the National Football League is to reach the start of the regular season without any significant injuries.
There are still spots up for grabs as the team gets closer to the season.
The beginning and end of the 2013 season for Eagles wide receiver Riley Cooper couldn’t have been more different.
The Eagles will sign free agent wide receiver Brad Smith, pending a physical, according to a report.
