DE Jadeveon Clowney
OG Phil Haynes
RB C.J. Prosise

WR John Ursua
TE Luke Willson

Eagles:

WR Nelson Agholor
OG Nate Herbig

Is Nelson Agholor Using a Burner Twitter Account to Rip on QB Carson Wentz?

The 5-5 Eagles have enough things on their team to worry about, but one of them can’t possibly be in-fighting within their own team – can it?

There’s speculation that wide out Nelson Agholor is taking shots at quarterback Carson Wentz, using a burner twitter account to take shots at the former first overall pick.

The burner account criticized Wentz and said former Eagles QB Nick Foles throws a better ball. Here’s some screen shots of the account from Eagles Nation:

Agholor came out and denied that he had anything to do with the account.

“Social media is a place where you can influence for the positive but once the energy isn’t helpful, there’s no need for it,” said Agholor.

“I have to focus on the Eagles, the guys in this locker room, and our loyal fans who need us to play well, and I have to have positive energy. It’s part of eliminating distractions.

“I hadn’t been on there, wasn’t really active on there. It was my family that was telling me about it. So I was like this makes no sense. They don’t need to be worried about that, so it was unneeded.”

Here’s a preview from the NFL:

Tackle Jason Peters Had Knee Surgery, Set to Practice and Get Back in the Lineup

Eagles fans haven’t seen left tackle Jason Peters since week six, but that could change quickly as the tackle had an arthroscopic procedure to clean up his knee and is ready to return to the lineup.

Coach Doug Pederson stated that Peters had arthroscopic surgery in the last few weeks, but is on the road to recovery and should be back soon.

The coach stated that Peters should take part in practice today, and they will look to see where he stands and go from there about him playing.

Rookie Andre Dillard has been starting in Peters’s place at the tackle spot.

Another player that could return is wide out Alshon Jeffery, he is listed as “day-to-day” with an ankle injury.

Also Pederson says he’s hoping that linebacker Nigel Bradham is ready to come back from his ankle injury to be able to take on the 8-1 Patriots at home at 4:25pm Sunday afternoon.

Eagles Bring Back Veteran Wide Out Jordan Matthews

The Eagles wide out core took a big hit with the loss of DeSean Jackson, but the team moved quickly on Wednesday to fill the void, bringing in veteran receiver Jordan Matthews.

It’s the third time in his career that Matthews has been with the Eagles. He was a second-round pick of the Eagles in 2014.

He played three seasons with the Eagles before he was traded to the Bills, and then came back to the Eagles in 2018.

This season he started with the San Francisco 49ers, lasting just one game before he was released in late October.

The 27-year-old receiver has 270 catches for 3,255 yards and 22 touchdowns over his career.
