2 Eagles to miss Monday Night Football matchup against Dallas
After spraining his MCL in practice, the Philadelphia Eagles have officially ruled out Jordan Mailata for Monday’s game against the Dallas Cowboys. Alongside Mailata, Rodney McLeod will be out another week as he continues to recover from his ACL tear last season. Boston Scott and Davion Taylor are questionable, but everyone else is cleared for Monday.
Eagles injury report for September 25th:
Davion Taylor is still battling that calf injury he first sustained back in training camp. He played last week against San Francisco but left early. Boston Scott is still fighting that illness that has been going around the Eagles’ locker room. Fletcher Cox and Hassan Ridgeway were both listed with illness also but have no injury designation.
Zach Ertz was activated off the COVID-19/Reserve list earlier today after testing positive on Monday. J.J. Arcega-Whiteside, Jason Kelce, and Miles Sanders were all listed but with no injury designation. Meanwhile, the Cowboys are struggling with injuries and positive COVID cases, ruling out several significant players on their defense for this week’s game.
Luckily, Jordan Mailata’s injury isn’t deemed to be serious, and he shouldn’t miss much more time. Andre Dillard will face a very weak Cowboys line and should hold his own in his first snaps this season. Against the Jets in the preseason, Dillard posted a team-high 81.5 pass-blocking rating.
