Eight Philadelphia Eagles land on their Day 6 training camp injury report.
Well, after five straight days of Philadelphia Eagles on-field practices, the ‘Birds’ were given a much-needed day off on Saturday. You all can argue among yourselves about whether or not that made you Saturday one of rest and relaxation or boredom.
Either way, every member of the Philly media and every member of the ‘Birds’ fanbase rose on Sunday feeling as close to being ready to strap on the pads themselves as one ould be without actually having to do so. August 23rd brought with it sunshine and what we all felt to be the sixth real day of camp (even though these guys have been at the Novacare Complex since July).
Unfortunately, that means it was also time for the Eagles to smack us over the heads with another injury report. Let’s dig in. There’s much to discuss.
Here’s a brief look at those Sunday morning Philadelphia Eagles injuries.
Headlining Philly’s most recent injury report was five guys with illnesses. As we mentioned on Friday, ‘illness’ doesn’t necessarily mean COVID-19, but it should be noted that, after four players missed practice just two days ago for the same reason, some are wondering what this bug is or if this is the same ailment that’s affecting everyone.
Here are the guys who were sick on Sunday: Vinny Curry, Anthony Rush, Hassan Ridgeway, John Hightower, and Corey Clement. Lane Johnson joins them due to a lower-body injury that’s been given the classification of ‘day-to-day’. Josh Perkins is out indefinitely with an upper-body injury. Robert Davis has a lower-body injury that’s a little more serious. He’s listed as ‘week to week’.
That last one figures to be much of the reason that the Eagles announced on Sunday that they were activating another wide receiver, Travis Fulgham, to the training camp roster. Tackle Casey Tucker was released in a subsequent move.
