Ryan Mathews - RBPosted 11/25/15 4:57pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB Ryan Mathews (concussion) is officially out for Week 12 Thursday, Nov. 26.
Huddle Up: Mathews will miss a second straight game, meaning his touches will spread around again between DeMarco Murray, Darren Sproles and Kenjon Barner.
Zach Ertz - TEPosted 11/24/15 5:07pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles TE Zach Ertz will not play Thursday, Nov. 26, against the Detroit Lions as he will still be in the concussion protocol.
Huddle Up: Tough timing for Ertz who had averaged 5.2 catches and 55.6 yards over the five games prior to Week 11 as the Eagles were increasingly involving the tight ends in the offense. That makes compatriot Brent Celek a sneaky TE play this week.
Sam Bradford - QBPosted 11/24/15 5:25pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford (shoulder, concussion) had 'some memory loss' after sustaining a concussion in Week 10, and he also said his separated left shoulder could keep him out again versus the Detroit Lions in Week 12 Thursday, Nov. 26. '(The decision depends on) how it progresses from here to game time,' Bradford said, 'and whether myself and the coaches feel comfortable with me out there playing. It feels better today than it did yesterday. If it continues to progress, I'd like to be out there.' Bradford has cleared the concussion protocol, and offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur said Bradford looked good in practice Monday, Nov. 23. The QB was limited in practice Tuesday. QB Mark Sanchez will start again if Bradford isn't ready.
Huddle Up: The short week obviously isn't doing Bradford any favors, but expect a decision Wednesday as to who will start in Motown.
Sam Bradford - QBPosted 11/23/15 3:21pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford (shoulder, concussion) was back at practice Monday, Nov. 23, for the first time since he was injured in Week 10. Bradford did everything the other quarterbacks did in the portion open to the media, and it looked like he might put in a full practice. It's unknown if Bradford will play in Week 12 on a short week against the Detroit Lions Thursday, Nov. 26.
Huddle Up: Bradford returned to practice but Mark Sanchez is still expected to start Thursday's game against the Lions. Sanchez didn't play well on Sunday. He'll be nothing more than a high-end QB2 even in a plus matchup versus Detroit.
Mark Sanchez - QBPosted 11/20/15 3:45pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles QB Mark Sanchez will start Sunday, Nov. 22, against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with QB Sam Bradford (shoulder, concussion) out.
Huddle Up: Sanchez, who was 14 of 23 for 156 yards and an interception following Bradford's injury last Sunday, will make his first start of the year, and he'll be greeted by a decent matchup as the visiting Bucs surrender the 11th most fantasy points to opposing QBs. You do a lot worse for a streaming QB if you need help this week
Ryan Mathews - RBPosted 11/20/15 3:45pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB Ryan Mathews (concussion) is out for Week 11. RB Kenjon Barner will have a role Sunday, Nov. 22.
Huddle Up: Mathews is averaging 9.9 touches and 60.6 total yards per game and leads Philly with six TDs. The speedy Barner should see his first offensive work of the season, but DeMarco Murray and Darren Sproles figure to be the primary beneficiaries.
Ryan Mathews - RBPosted 11/19/15 3:25pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB Ryan Mathews (concussion) hasn't been cleared from the concussion protocol Thursday, Nov. 19. Mathews missed a second straight practice and is unlikely to play in Week 11, in the opinion of beat writer Jeff McLane.
Huddle Up: If he's out, it would be the first game Mathews has missed this season, and it obviously would mean more touches for fellow RBs DeMarco Murray and Darren Sproles.
Sam Bradford - QBPosted 11/19/15 6:30pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford (concussion, shoulder) still hadn't been cleared from the concussion protocol Thursday, Nov. 19.
Huddle Up: There's still a sliver of a chance Bradford could still play, but barring a sudden reversal of fortune it'll be Mark Sanchez taking aim at the Bucs' suspect secondary Sunday.
Sam Bradford - QBPosted 11/18/15 4:00pm ET
Updating previous reports, Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford (shoulder, concussion) had an MRI confirm a separated left shoulder Wednesday, Nov. 18. He wants to play in Week 11, but the team will see how he feels later in the week.
Huddle Up: Bradford didn't practice Wednesday and is certainly a longshot given the dual injuries. As of ight now, bank on Mark Sanchez making his first start of the season against the Bucs on Sunday.
Zach Ertz - TEPosted 11/18/15 5:21pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly has been using more two-tight ends sets with TEs Zach Ertz and Brent Celek to better suit the skill set of his tight ends and RB DeMarco Murray. The Eagles has emphasized '12' personnel two-tight end sets for two straight weeks and have been rewarded with 202 combined receiving yards from Ertz and Celek.
Huddle Up: More bad news for those who own a Philly WR -- Jordan Matthews in particular -- but this is what it's come to after all the drops and injuries which have besieged the Eagles' wideouts.
Ryan Mathews - RBPosted 11/17/15 3:45pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB Ryan Mathews (concussion) is out of practice Tuesday, Nov. 17.
Huddle Up: Mathews, who leads the Eagles with six TDs, was one of several Philly players dinged up in Sunday's loss to the Dolphins, and his status throughout the week will need to be monitored.
Sam Bradford - QBPosted 11/16/15 9:21am ET
Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford (shoulder, concussion) was diagnosed with a Grade II sprain of the AC joint in his left shoulder, according to a source.
Huddle Up: The injury to Bradford's non-throwing shoulder might be less worrisome than the concussion he suffered, as after the game he was having trouble remembering details of the first half. He'll be in the league's concussion protocol as well as rehabbing his shoulder injury, with Mark Sanchez the fill-in until Bradford is ready to return.
Sam Bradford - QBPosted 11/16/15 2:21pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford (shoulder, concussion) is expected to miss the Week 11 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and could also miss the Week 12 game against Detroit Lions.
Huddle Up: Mark Sanchez will start while Bradford is out. If Sanchez plays well, he could keep the starting job even when Bradford returns. Sanchez has two good matchups against the Lions and Bucs for owners looking for quarterback help.
DeMarco Murray - RBPosted 11/9/15 9:06am ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB DeMarco Murray carried 18 times for 83 yards and a touchdown in Week 9 against the Dallas Cowboys, and he added six receptions for 78 yards in his first game back in Dallas since signing with the Eagles in the offseason.
Huddle Up: That's a significantly better performance than Murray's two yards on 13 carries from the previous meeting. Better still for Murray and the Eagles, Philly left Big D with a win and a leg up in the NFC East.
Ryan Mathews - RBPosted 11/5/15 3:52pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB Ryan Mathews (groin) missed practice Thursday, Nov. 5, after being limited the day before.
Huddle Up: This is also known as trending in the wrong direction, and if Mathews can't reverse course Friday, it'll be time to get very concerned about his availability for Sunday night's contest in Dallas.
Nelson Agholor - WRPosted 11/4/15 6:40pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles WR Nelson Agholor (ankle) practiced in full Wednesday, Nov. 4.
Huddle Up: Agholor sat out Weeks 6 and 7 and then had the team's bye last weekend to help speed his recovery. Unless we hear otherwise later in the week, fully expect his return Sunday night against the Cowboys.
Jordan Matthews - WRPosted 10/26/15 9:11am ET
Philadelphia Eagles WR Jordan Matthews dropped a couple of passes and failed to come down in bounds on another catch in a 27-16 loss to the Carolina Panthers in Week 7.
Huddle Up: This has not been the breakout season many expected from Matthews, with drops a major reason why. The Eagles are also spreading the ball around as opposed to leaning on a go-to guy, though Matthews' mouth-watering potential still makes him an attractive fantasy stash until he figures out the hands issue.
Sam Bradford - QBPosted 10/26/15 2:03pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford will remain the starting quarterback for the Eagles. Head coach Chip Kelly said he is happy with the way Bradford has played.
Huddle Up: Bradford hasn't been great this year but he wasn't helped out Sunday by all the drops from his receivers. Bradford will continue to be a low-end QB1/QB2 going forward.
Jordan Matthews - WRPosted 10/26/15 3:56pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles WR Jordan Matthews (hand) has been dealing with a hand injury for a month now, according to Les Bowen of the Philadelphia Daily News.
Huddle Up: The injury could explain Matthews having trouble with drops this season. He'll continue to be a weekly WR3 going forward.
Ryan Mathews - RBPosted 10/26/15 3:56pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB Ryan Mathews (groin) suffered a groin injury during the team's Week 7 game, which limited has snaps for the rest of the game.
Huddle Up: Mathews still scored a 63-yard touchdown even after the injury, so he wasn't all that limited. Mathews has the bye week to get healthy.
Jordan Matthews - WRPosted 10/23/15 12:19am ET
Philadelphia Eagles WR Jordan Matthews is among the NFL leaders in dropped passes, but he said he isn't letting the issue change his routine or mindset.
Huddle Up: The second-year Matthews started strong with a combined 16 receptions for 182 yards and a TD in the Eagles' first two games, but only has 20 grabs for 202 yards an no scores since. He's still worth starting for his upside as Philly's top target, but he needs another big game or a big catch to jump-start his confidence.
DeMarco Murray - RBPosted 10/20/15 12:26am ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB DeMarco Murray rushed 22 times for 109 yards and added three receptions for 14 yards Monday, Oct. 19 in a 27-7 Week 6 win over the New York Giants.
Huddle Up: It was Murray's first 100-yard game with Philly and second straight outing with a TD as he continues to bounce back from his deeply disappointing slow start. Next up is a tough matchup with the undefeated Panthers and their stout D before a Week 8 bye.
DeMarco Murray - RBPosted 10/20/15 9:53am ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB DeMarco Murray carried 22 times for 109 yards and a touchdown in the Week 6 win against the New York Giants Monday, Oct. 19. He also posted three receptions for 14 yards.
Huddle Up: The Eagles seem to have found a running back rotation that works for them; more importantly, they seem to be freeing Murray up to be the kind of back they expected when they signed him as a free agent. And most importantly, Murray is finally delivering on the investment of fantasy owners.
Sam Bradford - QBPosted 10/20/15 4:10pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles QB Sam Bradford remains the team's starting quarterback, and head coach Chip Kelly has full confidence in him.
Huddle Up: Bradford looked as if he was on the right track with a 6:2 TD-to-interception ratio over the previous three games but then went out and tossed a season-high three picks Monday night to keep the Giants' hopes alive in a game they were otherwise being dominated. It doesn't figure to get a whole lot better this week on the road against the Panthers' D, and just because the Eagles are sticking with Bradford as their starter doesn't necessarily mean fantasy GMs have to.
Ryan Mathews - RBPosted 10/19/15 2:57pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB Ryan Mathews (groin) will work out before the Week 6 game against the New York Giants Monday, Oct. 19, and there is optimism about his availability for the game.
Huddle Up: Mathews will be DeMarco Murray's backup if he's active. He's not worth putting in your starting lineups with Murray coming off a big game last week.
Nelson Agholor - WRPosted 10/19/15 7:29pm ET
The Philadelphia Eagles have declared WR Nelson Agholor, DL Brandon Bair, CB Denzel Rice, LB Kiko Alonso, LB Mychal Kendricks, OT Tanner Hawkinson and QB Thaddeus Lewis inactive for Week 6.
Huddle Up: The rookie first-round pick was off to a slow start with eight receptions for 105 yards in the first five games before coming up injured in the Week 5 win over the Saints, and Josh Huff, who had four catches for 78 yards and a TD last week, expected to take his place in the starting lineup.
Ryan Mathews - RBPosted 10/19/15 7:33pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB Ryan Mathews (groin) is officially active for the Week 6 game against the New York Giants Monday, Oct. 19.
Huddle Up: It came down to a game-time decision, but Mathews will play against the Giants and likely will have his usual 10 or so touches, taking away from the workload of starter DeMarco Murray.
Nelson Agholor - WRPosted 10/15/15 5:45pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles WR Nelson Agholor (ankle) did not take part in practice Thursday, Oct. 15.
Huddle Up: Agholor suffered an ankle injury in the Week 5 win over the Saints, and while Monday's MRI didn't reveal any major issues, he hasn't been able to get on the field for Philly's first two practices of the week. The rookie wideout does have an extra day with the Eagles not playing until Monday, but he's going to need to show some improvement over the next few days.
DeMarco Murray - RBPosted 10/11/15 9:50pm ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB DeMarco Murray had 20 carries for 83 yards and seven catches for 37 yards in a 39-17 win over the New Orleans Saints in Week 5.
Huddle Up: Murray came in with 47 yards on a season, so it was nice to finally see him get going. Murray will take on the Giants' No. 1 ranked rush defense next week.
DeMarco Murray - RBPosted 10/5/15 9:01am ET
Philadelphia Eagles RB DeMarco Murray said he's not getting enough touches in the offense Sunday, Oct. 4. 'No, I'm not,' Murray said. 'I don't think I am. It's how the plays are being called. I love this offense. I love playing with these guys. It's just how it is.'
Huddle Up: Murray has done little with the touches he has received, and the Eagles' only win came in the game in which Murray did not play at all. Also, complaining about the system might not be the best way to succeed in Chip Kelly's regime.
