Eagles Notes: Another former teammate of Jalen Hurts joins team; injury updates on Slay, Maddox
Some Eagles news on this Victory Monday.
Robinson played with Jalen Hurts at Oklahoma and was the QB’s starting right guard in 2019. He played over 1500 snaps at RG and nearly 900 snaps at right tackle. With the uncertainty surrounding Mailata and Isaac Seamalo, the Eagles will look to Robinson for OL depth.
In other news, CBs Avonte Maddox and Darius Slay don’t appear to have sustained long-term injuries:

When asked about a bunch of injured guys — Jake Elliott, Jordan Mailata, Isaac Seumalo, Darius Slay and Avonte Maddox — Nick Sirianni says "everyone has a chance to play this weekend."— Dave Zangaro (@DZangaroNBCS) October 3, 2022
“We think that everybody has a chance to play this weekend,” Sirianni said. “I don’t want to come out and say that quite yet just in case some things happen. But we do believe everybody has a chance to play this weekend.”
