The Philadelphia Eagles will be as close to 100 percent ready and available for Sunday night’s NFC East showdown with the Dallas Cowboys. Aside from quarterback Nick Foles, every other player on the official Eagles injury report Friday afternoon is listed as probable.
If Sunday’s game exposed any one weakness on the Eagles defense, it is the play of the outside cornerbacks. St. Louis quarterback Austin Davis picked apart the Eagles defensive backs on the outside of the field time and time again as the Rams started to chip away.
Cedric Thornton recorded two fumble recoveries and a TD against the Rams.
The Eagles have re-signed defensive end Cedric Thornton to a one-year deal, the team announced Monday.
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.
