Eagles running back Chris Polk talked to KYW about his controversial carry late in Sunday’s game, among other topics.
Chip Kelly defends his 5-2 Eagles after their devastating loss on Sunday.
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.
When the Eagles head to Arizona they will do so chasing the Dallas Cowboys in the NFC East and jostling with the Cardinals for potential playoff positioning. As the season progresses, the importance of each game will continue to rise. Kelly sounds ready for that challenge. It’s back to business for the Eagles.
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.
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.
Nobody ever said winning is supposed to be easy, especially in division play. That has been true for the Eagles and Washington for a long time and continued to be the case on Sunday afternoon.
The Eagles had to shuffle the offensive line this week following a couple of injuries on the line in the season opener against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Right tackle Lane Johnson continues to serve his suspension for another three games, including Monday night, but the Eagles also lost reserve lineman Allen Barbre (broken leg). Starting left guard Evan Mathis (knee) is out of action until at least Week 10. The concerns on the line will continue this week with Matt Tobin having to sit out of practices this week due to an ankle injury.
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.
On Saturday, the Eagles will cut their roster to 53 players.
The Eagles have six running backs on the roster and it appears they’ll have to make a tough choice.
The Eagles are back on the field at the Linc for the first time since their playoff exit.
Chris Polk could have a much bigger role with the Eagles this season.
Chris Polk heard of the player, he just didn’t know about the stat.
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.
