5 Eagles out Sunday night against Dallas
Going into their biggest game of the season the Eagles continue to be shorthanded. Some help is on the way with the return of Jalen Reagor and Lane Johnson but like every other week, the birds still have some gaps to fill.
Miles Sanders and Alshon Jeffery are out yet another week. Sanders has been nursing a knee injury sustained against Baltimore. Alshon has recovered from his Lisfranc injury but hurt his calf during practice.
On the defensive side of the ball there are some new characters out. Cre’Von LeBlanc is out with a quadricep injury and will be a major loss. His presence in the slot was going to be huge against the Cowboys receivers. Cornerback Craig James is also out.
Nate Gerry was also announced to be going on IR with an Achilles injury sidelining him for at least 3 weeks. Alex Singleton will likely be the lead backer with the green sticker going forward. Shaun Bradley and Davion Taylor now have a shot to make a real impact on this defense.
Malik Jackson and Vinny Curry return to help bolster a D-Line who Ben Dinucci wants the house from. K’Von Wallace is also a full go to help in the secondary. Jason Peters is also a likely start over Jordan Mailata which is a ridiculously puzzling move. With reinforcements on the way, Dinucci and the Cowboys better be careful what they wish for.
