Injuries have been a far smaller concern this season for the Eagles compared to last season. Perhaps that is a significant factor in the turnaround on the field in addition to a new coach breathing new life in to the franchise.
he Eagles will be missing a couple of defensive players this weekend as they look to snap their home losing streak in Lincoln Financial Field. Safety Earl Wolff and back-up linebacker Jake Knott have been ruled out by the Eagles for this weekend’s home game against the Washington Redskins.
Mike Vick is still bothered by a hamstring injury that has been nagging him for the last month. The veteran quarterback was limited in practices early in the week but did get in a full practice on Friday. Even if his hamstring stops bothering by Sunday, it should be expected he will serve as nothing more than a back-up quarterback option to Nick Foles.
Everything is on track for Michael Vick to return to the starting lineup for the Philadelphia Eagles this weekend as the New York Giants come to town. Second-year quarterback Nick Foles is out after not practicing all week due to a concussion, so Vick’s return is quite timely for the Eagles.
Things did not start off well but the Eagles put together the so-called full team effort. The offense started slowly but ended up having a really good game. The defense took their lumps but got past them to do their part as well.
The Eagles placed corner back Brandon Hughes on the short-term injured reserve list with a hamstring injury. To fill his vacant roster spot the Eagles added Roc Carmichael. As for the rest of the team, players appear to be ready to go for the third game of the season against former Eagles head coach Andy Reid.
Brandon Hughes should be back on the field this week after missing the season opener due to a hand injury, but Bradley Fletcher has been ruled out this weekend after suffering a concussion on Monday night against Washington.
Revamping a secondary that posted one of the worst statistical seasons in recent history clearly is a top priority for the Philadelphia Eagles.
The team agreed to terms on deals with tight end James Casey, cornerback Bradley Fletcher, safety Patrick Chung, linebacker Jason Phillips and defensive lineman Isaac Sopoaga.
