Eagles WR DeSean Jackson Still Sidelined with Groin Injury

Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson remained sidelined at Wednesday’s practice according to Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer.

Jackson has not practiced or played since suffering a groin injury in Week 2.

Head coach Doug Pederson offered little information as far as an update but D-Jax’s status remains day-to-day until further notice.

With the Eagles being favored by 13.5 points this week against the New York Jets, the deam doesn’t necessarily need their deep threat to suit up.

Ronald Darby Trade Rumors Continue to Circulate

The most recent rumors to have escalated in the NFL have been circling like vultures around Ronald Darby and supporters are wondering if there is any value to these whispers. The NFL has been under microscopic view recently, following the long list of injuries Ronald Darby has suffered ever since he was acquired by the Philadelphia Eagles. The player was taken in after serving a career with the Buffalo Bills but the transfer seemed to have had a significant effect on the player as all he has managed to do since then is meet tabloid headlines with failures and injuries.

Needless to say, the sports betting industry is hanging on every word from media revolving around injuries and the Philadelphia Eagles. Bets are made and millions are at stake. Check out the stakes when you click here or find out more about the transfer rumors lurking around Ronel Darby, they seem to be picking the flesh of his bones and you would never believe who is said to take the players place should the trade rumors be valid.

The Injury List

Ronald Darby may be a talented player, but Eagles fans are beginning to lose patience and not see the players worth. Once again, another injury has been added to the list. The Eagles cornerback played a recent game against the Detroit Lions on the 22nd of September 2019 and couldn’t even make it into the second half before succumbing to a hamstring injury in the first half of the game. The injury resulted in the player exiting the game and according to sources, Darby will be benched for quite some time to come, although how long, we cannot say.

All that we can say is, according to the NFL Network’s representative, Darby will be missed for some time and has gone in for tests which led to an MRI. After the test results came back, Ian Rapoport went on to say that Ronal Darby will most likely miss a few games in future. This comment was followed up by the NFL’s Networks Mike Garafolo who continued saying that after looking into the matter, Darby’s hamstring injury was significant and that the cornerback could miss more than just ‘some time’ and that he could actually miss a month or so.

So who could the Eagles want to trade for?

According to sources, the rumors circulating are saying that the Eagles should be looking at Jalen Ramsey. The player is currently the cornerback for the Jaguars and wants to be traded from Jacksonville, but his current organization has a different perspective so there is no telling if it is under debate.

Whether or not this will happen remains to be seen and right now it’s all about the rumors. But one thing remains certain, the Eagles are currently without a star cornerback and will need current teammate players Maddox, Douglas and Jones to fill the shoes of Ronal Darby if the team is expected to pull through.

Eagles WR Agholor Invites Fan Who Saved Children from a Burning House to a Game

Eagles wide receiver Nelson Agholor has invited a man who rescued children from a burning house to be his guest at a game after the former firefighter criticized Agholor’s catching skills during a television interview, the Associated Press reports.

Hakim Laws said he was walking in the area of a house fire when he jumped into action. According to Laws, he waited outside while another man entered the building to help.

“My man just started throwing babies out. … And we were catching them, unlike Agholor,” Laws said.

Agholor dropped what would have been a go-ahead 60-yard touchdown pass in Philadelphia’s loss at Atlanta in Week 2. He had a few more drops in a 27-24 loss to Detroit on Sunday.

The video of Laws’ interview was the talk of Philly on Monday and had been viewed several million times.

“Thank you for being a hero in the community,” Agholor wrote on Twitter. “Would like to invite you and your family to the next home game.”

Eagles Ink DT Akeem Spence to Replace Injured Malik Jackson

The Eagles worked out two players on Tuesday, and one could fill a void opened up on the defensive tackle depth chart in the wake of a season-ending injury to Malik Jackson, Zack Rosenblatt of NJ Advance Media reports.

They quickly signed one of them. That is, Dolphins defensive tackle Akeem Spence. In a corresponding move, the Eagles also placed Jackson on injured reserve and released tight end Alex Ellis.

Spence worked out at NovaCare Complex on Tuesday along with former Eagles linebacker Paul Worrilow, a person familiar with the situation told NJ Advance Media.

The 6-1, 307-pound Spence spent the 2018 season with the Dolphins, where he started all 16 games. The 27-year-old finished the year with 42 tackles, two sacks and, per Pro Football Focus, 32 total quarterback pressures.

DeSean Jackson gave the Eagles a minor scare in practice, Kevin Patra of NFL.com reports.

NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Tuesday that the Philadelphia receiver suffered a broken finger on his left hand in today’s workout, per sources informed of the situation.

Eagles Coach Pederson Says RG Brandon Brooks Still Not Cleared for Team Drills

Eagles head coach Doug Pederson says starting right guard Brandon Brooks still has not been cleared to participate in team drills according to Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia.

Brooks will take part in 1-on-1 drills this week and “see how his body responds.” It is actually amazing that Brooks was able to avoid the PUP list at the start of training camp given that he tore his Achilles in last year’s playoffs and a week one return remains “a possibility”.

Originally a third-round pick out of Miami Ohio by the Houston Texans in 2012, the 29-year-old Brooks is a two-time Pro Bowler and graded out as the No.8-overall guard out of 81 qualifiers in 2018 according to Pro Football Focus.

Halapoulivaati Vaitai would start in Brooks’ place if he is not ready for the regular season opener against the Redskins.
