Eagles player named second most overpaid in the NFL by Forbes Magazine

As if Eagles running back LeSean McCoy’s reputation could take more of a hit after leaving a .20 cent tip earlier this year, Forbes ranked him as the second most overpaid player in the NFL.

Eagles Injury Updates: Mychal Kendricks, Darren Sproles, Jason Kelce

The Philadelphia Eagles had some positive news recently as several players returned to practicing fully with the team.  Reports from local media indicate that three key players: Mychal Kendricks, Darren Sproles , and Jason Kelce were seen participating Tuesday with the team.  The Eagles have been banged up in recent weeks leaving some doubt whether personnel moves might be in the works. However, Coach Chip Kelly indicated, “They’ll run around here today, and we’ll make some decisions.” #183943763 / gettyimages.comAt this point, Sproles is most likely to see the field this coming Sunday.  Kendrick remains a question mark as to his upcoming status and Coach Kelly indicated Marcus Smith will remain at linebacker. Kelce will likely need additional preparation time as he’s recently coming off sports hernia surgery with no definite timetable for return. Like what you’re reading?

Philadelphia Eagles: Injuries and upcoming schedule

The Philadelphia Eagles returned from their bye with good news on the injury front. All players previously ailing with reported injuries were back on the practice field today except for Evan Mathis, who will return to the practice field tomorrow, and Brad Smith, who is still recovering from core muscle surgery.
This means that center Jason Kelce saw practice time along with linebacker Mychal Kendricks. While Kelce is focusing on the November 2nd game against Houston as his return date, Kendricks will be undecided until later in the week.

The prospect of possibly missing only 1-2 players for all of the next 4 games is one that the Eagles undoubtedly welcome with open arms. Yes, the Eagles are tied atop their division with the Cowboys, but the next stretch of games for the two teams puts Philadelphia at a decided disadvantage.

The Cowboys play their next 2 games at home against the Redskins and Cardinals, followed by a bye and a road game against Jacksonville. Anything less than 2-1 in those games would be u

Sproles, who feared torn ACL, thinks he’ll play Sunday

It looked bad. Really bad. Like season-ending bad.

Did you fear the worst, Darren Sproles was asked Tuesday?

Did you fear a torn ACL?

“I don’t like saying that word,” the electrifying running back and returner said with a smile. “But yeah. … I thought it was bad.”

No worries.

Sproles was back at practice Tuesday, just nine days after suffering a scary knee injury during the Eagles’ 27-0 win over the Giants at the Linc (see Injury Update).

Sproles, who has 409 yards from scrimmage on just 48 touches, was diagnosed with a sprained medial collateral ligament but it was a mild one, and Sproles now appears likely to play against the Cardinals on Sunday.

The Eagles and Cards, both 5-1, meet at 4:05 p.m. at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Ariz.

Will Sproles be out there?

“The way, I’m feeling, yeah,” he said after practice Tuesday.

When Sproles went to bed last Sunday night, he had no idea when he’d play again. But he had an M…

Eagles’ upgrades to 2014 roster are paying off…

Our good friend Sunbutts scoffs at my use of the term “upgrade” when referring to the new and improved Philadelphia Eagles roster in 2014.
I suppose he has a critical point— Sunbutts judges a team’s overall quality by how deep it goes in the playoffs. It’s still way too early at 5-1 to project the current edition of the Eagles anywhere beyond what the 2013 edition had accomplished— a divisional title and one-and-done in the playoffs.
But it’s instructive for me as a phan to appreciate not only how many games we win, but how much better we’re playing at some positions. It just seems like a better overall product on the field in 2014. The coordinators seem to have a lot more flexibility with their game plans, too.
Consider that in 2013 we went into the season with Isaac Sopoaga slated as our starting NT and Patrick Chung and Kurt Coleman set to start at safety.
Rookies Bennie Logan (NT), Lane Johnson (RT), Earl Wolff (S), Zach Ertz (TE) and Matt Barkley (backup QB) were all struggling…

Eagles get a huge boost, the team is finally getting healthy

Darren Sproles returned to the practice field Tuesday, according to Philadelphia Eagles coach Chip Kelly. This is huge news because many thought Sproles would be out several weeks.  Eagles linebacker Mychal Kendricks (calf), who had been out since Week 2, also practiced. Center Jason Kelce (sports hernia) returned as well — Kelly said David Molk […] The post Eagles get a huge boost, the team is finally getting healthy appeared first on NFL Draft Diamonds.

Eagles fans already can’t wait for Thanksgiving showdown with Cowboys

The Philadelphia Eagles and The Dallas Cowboys might just be the two best teams in the NFL. How great is that?
It’s almost like we’ve been transported in a time machine back to the Donovan McNabb era Eagles to see them face off against the Terrell Owens Dallas Cowboys. The Eagles are 5-1, while the Cowboys are 6-1. At this rate the game might not only have an enormous impact on the division race, but also could help decide the number one seed in the conference.
In other words, it’s kind of a big deal.
The Twittersphere is already anxious to see these two teams meet up:
Been alive for almost 25 years, in Philly for 21. Haven’t heard a regular season game talked about more than Eagles-Cowboys on Thanksgiving.

NFL inexplicably leaves Philadelphia Eagles star off Pro Bowl ballot

Voting for the Pro Bowl is now open on the NFL’s official website.
The good news is there are several solid Philadelphia Eagles to cast your vote for, including Jeremy Maclin, Connor Barwin and Jason Peters. The bad news is they left off the guy who has been the team’s best player this season.
That’s right. Running back and punt returner Darren Sproles is not on the ballot.

It’s bad enough that he’s left off the running back page and yet Ka’deem Carey is there (WHO?), but he’s not even available to vote for as a return specialist despite leading the league in punt return yards.
What a joke.

Injured Philadelphia Eagles offensive lineman to return sooner than expected

The bye week has been very kind to the Philadelphia Eagles this year.
Not only are they getting inside linebacker Mychal Kendricks and left guard Evan Mathis back at practice this week, but very soon they’ll be joined by another huge part of Philly’s offensive line.
Yesterday Mathis told Philly Sports Talk that center Jason Kelce is recovering faster than expected from his sports hernia. He has been cleared to practice and may rejoin the team as soon as Week 9 against the Houston Texans:
Accoring to @EvanMathis69, Evan Mathis has been cleared to practice. #EaglesTalk

I think Jason Kelce is ahead of schedule and if all things go well for him he could POSSIBLY play against the Texans – @EvanMathis69
— PSTonCSN (@PSTonCSN) October 20, 2014

If Mathis is right that’s a very nice boost for a unit that has been plagued by injury, inconsistency and suspension this year.
Right tackle Lane Johnson was absent the first four games of 2014 due to a drug suspension, Al

Evan Mathis has been cleared to resume practicing

Philadelphia Eagles guard Evan Mathis has been cleared to resume practicing.
While Mathis will not be able to return to the Eagles until Week 10 it sounds as if he will be ready then. Mathis has been one of the best guards in football and with his return and that of Lane Johnson the Eagles ground game is only going to be heading in the up direction.
#Eagles G Evan Mathis (Grade-3 MCL sprain/IR-DFR) said on @CSNPhilly’s Philly Sports Talk that he has been cleared to practice.

Mychal Kendricks return means Philadelphia Eagles win their bye week

The Philadelphia Eagles are doing pretty well for themselves this season. We’re about half way through the games and they’re neck and neck with the Dallas Cowboys for the lead in the NFC East.
Yesterday Philly sat idle but just because no game was played doesn’t mean that the team can’t move up or down on the NFL ladder.
Take last year’s Seattle Seahawks for example. Before their big Monday night matchup with the Saints two of their cornerbacks were suspended for substance abuse violations, leaving their secondary quite thin heading into a vital prime time game. Ultimately it didn’t matter but regardless you never want to see that kind of foolishness on a bye week.
So how have this year’s Eagles performed on the bye? Excellent. Here’s why…
