2 more Eagles suffer injuries during training camp
Even with shortened practices and a day off today, the Eagles cannot get rid of the injury bug. During yesterday’s practice, two more Eagles went down with injuries, running up the total to almost 20 players who have missed time or were hurt at one point during camp. The two additions to the list are wide receiver John Hightower and linebacker/safety Jacoby Stevens.
Stevens suffered a hamstring injury in practice and is now listed as week-to-week. Eagles guard Isaac Seumalo is also week-to-week with the same injury. Linebacker Davion Taylor joins them with a calf injury while DeVonta Smith rounds out the list with a sprained MCL. Jacoby is one of the rookies who will benefit the most from these preseason games, as he could make a push for a starting spot, so hopefully, he’ll make a quick recovery.
The other injury from yesterday’s practice wasn’t as significant, with John Hightower heading to the blue tent with an undisclosed injury and sat out the remainder of practice. Hightower is the 6th Eagles receiver to miss practice so far in training camp, which is concerning to see.
On a positive note, some players look to be on their way back. Alex Singleton is getting ready to come off the COVID-19 reserve list, and almost every player who’s been day-to-day has rebounded quite well. Nick Sirianni will need as many reps as possible with this roster ahead of their first pre-season game in just a week on August 12th.
