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.
The quarterback situation has been a constant story for the Eagles this season. This week Nick Foles worked his way back and practiced in full practices this week. With Foles available the Eagles avoid having to start rookie Matt Barkley.
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.
Vick taking in a full practice for the first time this week should be encouraging as the mobile quarterback comes back from a hamstring injury. Although Foles will get the start and the offense has performed well with the second-year quarterback under center, having the possibility of going back to Vick in case of emergency is comforting.
Vick was limited in practices all week, but head coach Chip Kelly has decided to hold off on making a call on his starting quarterback. It is likely Nick Foles will get the start against the Bucs, after replacing the injured Vick in the win over the Giants.
Two key defensive players are listed as probable for the Philadelphia Eagles heading into this weekend’s NFC East rivalry match-up against the New York Giants.
The Eagles will need to have a stable offense capable of providing protection to quarterback Michael Vick and clearing running lanes for running back LeSean McCoy. The offensive line will be critical for the Eagles.
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.
Offensive tackle Dennis Kelly and defensive back Brandon Hughes were the only players listed on this week’s injury report as the Eagles prepare to battle the Washington Redskins. No players are listed as probable, questionable or doubtful, so the Eagles appear to be ready to hit the ground running.
Eagles linebacker Mychal Kendricks and defensive tackle Fletcher Cox will each be out of action against the New York Giants
Even though McCoy has been cleared and will be ready to assume significant rushing duties, head coach Andy Reid says they will be monitoring his health closely.
The Eagles have been hit hard by concussions this season with Mike Vick and LeSean McCoy missing a few games due to their concussion battles, and now Brent Celek is battling a concussion.
The Philadelphia Eagles will be without five players when they look to snap a losing streak against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Will even Eagles fans know who is playing for their team when they take the field against the Panthers on Monday?
