Good news came on Wednesday! Thank goodness because we were in need of some. If it seemed like the bodies were racking up left and right during the Philadelphia Eagles Week 4 tilt with the Jacksonville Jaguars it’s because they were. Cornerback Avonte Maddox and running back Boston Scott were ruled out ahead of the contest. Darius Slay, Jake Elliott, Jordan Mailata, Isaac Seumalo, Kyron Johnson, and Patrick Johnson were lost during the game.

Naturally, we hoped we’d get an update on the Monday following another win during head coach Nick Sirianni’s sit-down with the media. Nope! Sure, he told us that he was hoping everyone would be able to play in Week 5, but he also said he’d tell us more on Wednesday.

Once Wednesday arrived, we were given the stiff-arm again. We get it, the competitive advantage angle, but as the afternoon led us to an hour or so before we reached the evening, an injury report was released. As stated earlier, we were glad to see some good news.

Darius Slay, Isaac Seumalo, and Boston Scott return to Eagles practice on Wednesday.

After seeing Darius Slay deal with a back issue in Week 3 and injure his forearm in Week 4, we were worried, but Big Play returned to the Eagles’ practice field on Wednesday. We couldn’t be happier.

Trending. We're with DeVonta on these cold-weather games. light

Boston Scott (rib) was also back as was Isaac Seumalo (ankle). Both were limited. Jake Elliott (ankle), Avonte Maddox (ankle), and Jordan Mailata (shoulder) all sat out as did Kyron Johnson and Patrick Johnson. The latter two are in the NFL’s concussion protocol.

Stay tuned all week. We’ll definitely be monitoring everyone’s progress between now and game day. Fingers are crossed. Injuries are a part of the deal, but we hope to see everyone back sooner rather than later.
