Injury update: Eagles get two players back ahead of roster cuts
The Eagles are getting a couple of guys back ahead of roster cuts.
The team announced on Monday that they have activated second-round OL Landon Dickerson off the NFI List and S Rodney McLeod from the PUP list. As a result, both players are now eligible to practice.

Both Dickerson and McLeod would have been ineligible to play or practice for the six weeks of the season if the Eagles didn’t activate them by the deadline.
The Eagles drafted Dickerson in the second round of this past draft to be the heir to Jason Kelce. The stout Alabama product tore his ACL during the SEC title game back in December. McLeod is also recovering from a torn ACL that he suffered in the victory over the Saints. All signs point to McLeod playing Week 1 in Atlanta.
