Good News from Dallas Goedert on Eagles’ injury front

PHILADELPHIA – The Eagles are getting healthier. The team started the clock on Jordan Davis’ 21-day practice window on Wednesday and star tight end Dallas Goedert gave a promising update on his shoulder injury. Davis has missed the past four games with a high-ankle sprain suffered against Pittsburgh on Oct. 30. The rookie was placed

PHILADELPHIA – NFL interception leader Chauncey Gardner-Johnson will be sidelined indefinitely with a lacerated kidney, a league source confirmed to JAKIB Sports. The Eagles are still gathering information on whether to place the veteran safety on injured reserve, something that would require Gardner-Johnson to miss at least four games.

Nick Sirianni on Jonathan Gannon: ‘I just think he’s a special coach’

PHILADELPHIA – Nick Sirianni is always very aware of what’s being said about his team. At times the Eagles’ head coach likes to pretend that’s not the case but every now and again he slips. One such moment came after the Eagles’ 17-16 win in Indianapolis during his contractually-obligated day-after radio appearance on 94.1 WIP.

Jalen Hurts ‘delivers’ for Eagles in win over the Colts

INDIANAPOLIS – To the outside world, Nick Sirianni tried to downplay his return to Indianapolis but it wasn’t exactly a secret around the NovaCare Complex how badly the Eagles’ head coach wanted this one. If you needed evidence of that it came pouring out after Jalen Hurts found the end zone with just 80 seconds

Eagles make another splash at DT with Ndamukong Suh

PHILADELPHIA – The one narrative that has been solidified around the NovaCare Complex over the past two days is that Howie Roseman is going down swinging. The Eagles’ GM added his second big-name defensive tackle in two days on Thursday by signing Ndamukong Suh to a one-year deal. Really, it’s an eight games plus the

Eagles bring in Linval Joseph; place Dallas Goedert and Marlon Tuipulotu on IR

PHILADELPHIA – The Eagles made a flurry of roster moves Wednesday with the headliners being the addition of veteran nose tackle Linval Joseph and the move of Dallas Goedert to injured reserve, something that guarantees the star tight end will miss the next four games.

Eagles Lose Dallas Goedert for Multiple Weeks

PHILADELPHIA – And you thought a confounding 32-21 setback to the Washington Commanders was bad. The Eagles’ first loss of the season was far more costly than a blemish in the standings. Philadelphia is going to lose star tight end Dallas Goedert for an extended period of time with a shoulder injury, according to the

Rest vs. Rust? Scheduling quirk adds uncertainty to 8-0 Eagles

PHILADELPHIA – When the Eagles take the field Monday night against the Washington Commanders, it will be just the third time in 29 days that the NFL’s only unbeaten team will be tested.

Nothing to see with Nakobe Dean’s playing time

PHILADELPHIA – Nakobe Dean isn’t playing right now and the reason for that should be obvious but the rookie linebacker’s high-profile college career is complicating matters for some fans. Not for the Eagles’ coaching staff, however, which is basking in the play of veterans T.J. Edwards and Kyzir White while also enjoying the luxury of

Eagles promote DB Andre Chachere

PHILADELPHIA – Week 1 without Jordan Davis didn’t go as smoothly as hoped but the Eagles persevered to top a bad Houston Texans team and move to 8-0. Without the big man in the middle, however, the Philadelphia defense allowed 168 yards rushing, including 139 to impressive rookie Dameon Pierce. As good as Pierce has

PHILADELPHIA – It’s election season so the focus is always going to spike for Nate Silver’s famed-predictive site, FiveThirtyEight.com.

HOUSTON – An afterthought turned to perseverance as the Eagles outlasted a competitive Houston Texans team, 29-17, on Thursday night to reach 8-0 for the first time in its nearly 90 years of franchise history.

PHILADELPHIA – Robert Quinn is expected to make his Eagles debut on Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers, a scant four days after being acquired from the Chicago Bears for a 2023 fourth-round pick.

With the championship window open the Eagles made a major move on Wednesday, acquiring 32-year-old edge rusher Robert Quinn for a fourth-round pick.

Lane Johnson advancing through concussion protocol

Right tackle Lane Johnson remains in the NFL’s concussion protocol as the Eagles (6-0) returned to work Wednesday in preparation for Sunday’s game against Pittsburgh (2-5). That caused a little angst pre-practice because it’s been 10 days since Johnson suffered a head injury against the Dallas Cowboys but the team’s bye week skewed the process.
