PHILADELPHIA – With seven returning captains from what was a Super Bowl team, change was never going to be the theme when it came to that honor. Turns out expansion was. Philadelphia officially named nine captains on Tuesday with dynamic receivers A.J. Brown and DeVonta Smith added to the group of seven from last season.
PHILADELPHIA – Eagles All-Pro right tackle Lane Johnson has dealt with one or two good defensive limen over a brilliant career that will reach Year 11 when Philadelphia invades New England for the season opener on Sept. 10. Typically Johnson wouldn’t get to see Eagles rookie Jalen Carter too much but some injuries at training
PHILADELPHIA – It’s been over a decade but Fletcher Cox remembers when he was the new kid on the block with the big expectations as the No. 12 overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft. Six Pro Bowls later and an All-Decade Team berth since have turned Cox, 32, into Eagles royalty and a great
PHILADELPHIA – The planned move of Cam Jurgens to right guard is supposed to be a temporary one before the 2022 second-round pick takes the baton from Jason Kelce at center for the Eagles. Of course that was also the plan for Isaac Seumalo and Landon Dickerson before the now 35-year-old Kelce kept going and
PHILADELPHIA – Nolan Smith has already made a great first impression on his new professional home. The No. 30 overall pick in April’s draft, the former Georgia star has easily handled the microphone and showed the energy and enthusiasm in practice you can’t teach. And none of it is manufactured. Smith loves ‘ball, a pre-requisite
PHILADELPHIA – There wasn’t much time for Lane Johnson to mourn a Super Bowl loss. The Eagles’ All-Pro right tackle played in the big game while fighting through a torn adductor muscle in his groin. Had the Eagles found a way to top the Kansas City Chiefs instead of coming up just short, Johnson’s short-term
PHILADELPHIA – Money can change a person and $255 million? When it comes to that kind of money for just about anyone else the characterization of “I’m the same guy” might be accompanied by the rolling of a few eyes. When it comes to Jalen Hurts, however, the reaction is a bit different. “As far
The Eagles and Lane Johnson agreed to a one-year contract extension that will give the All-Pro right tackle $30 million upfront for significant salary-cap relief. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported the deal as $33.445 million overall and technically extends Johnson’s deal from 2025 to 2026. Arguably the best right tackle in the NFL, Johnson, 32, hasn’t
Slot cornerback Avonte Maddox is the second Eagles player known to have undergone surgery since the season ended with a Super Bowl LVII loss to Kansas City. The Pitt product confirmed the news himself with a photo earlier this week on Instagram. Maddox was dealing with a painful turf toe injury on his left foot
PHILADELPHIA – Eagles star slot cornerback Avonte Maddox was back in a walking boot at Friday’s practice, although a team source said the plan is to be cautious with Maddox with the idea of having him on the field Feb. 12 in Super Bowl LVII against the Kansas City Chiefs. Obviously, the bye week helps
PHILADELPHIA – Jalen Hurts is “trending in the right direction” when it comes to a potential return from a sprained throwing shoulder and the MVP candidate has been listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the New York Giants. Hurts has missed the past two games — both losses — for the 13-3 Eagles, who
PHILADELPHIA – I’ll always consider myself a reporter first but over the years the sojourn to talking head has manifested itself and that move requires participation in certain sports-talk tropes that are both mind-numbing and soul-crushing for those of us trying to elevate the medium. One of the biggest hat tips to the least common
The question isn’t whether Lane Johnson will line up and play for the Eagles in the playoffs. He will. The question is how effective he will be playing with a torn adductor muscle. Johnson, the Eagles’ four-time Pro Bowl right tackle, suffered the injury in the fourth quarter of Saturday’s 40-34 loss to the Cowboys.
PHILADELPHIA – It’s status quo when it comes to Eagles and star quarterback Jalen Hurts. Hurts is dealing with a sprained SC joint in his shoulder and did not take part in a walkthrough practice on Wednesday but Eagles coach Nick Sirianni continues to leave the QB1’s playing status open-ended when it comes to Sunday’s
Far bigger than a loss at Dallas is the attrition that the 13-2 Eagles suffered against the Cowboys on Christmas Eve with two key starters expected out for the rest of the regular season in which Philadelphia still has to either win one of its final two home games against New Orleans and the New
PHILADELPHIA – A league-high eight Eagles players were selected to the 2023 Pro Bowl Team, including four first-timers. Quarterback and MVP candidate Jalen Hurts leads the list of first-time selections for Philadelphia and is joined by running back Miles Sanders, second-year left guard Landon Dickerson, and edge rusher Haason Reddick. The four making return trips

PHILADELPHIA – The Eagles received good news on the injury front Thursday when star right tackle Lane Johnson cleared the NFL’s concussion protocol and returned to practice while veteran defensive end Brandon Graham also engaged in a limited fashion after missing Wednesday’s session with a sore hamstring. Both were injured during the Week 6 win
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.
PHILADELPHIA – It was silly but some were calling for Nick Sirianni’s job after a 2-5 start last season. Win No. 2 in 2022, a dominating performance on Monday Night Football against the Minnesota Vikings, has many of the same hot-take artists trumpeting Sirianni for NFL Coach of the Year. Rat poison can be obvious
PHILADELPHIA – It’s simple supply and demand when it comes to NFL quarterbacks. There are never 32 people in the world good enough to stop every NFL team to uncover every rock to try to get better at arguably the most important position in sports. That explains why Carson Wentz in the man inside the
