Nick Sirianni states both Linval Joseph and Ndamukong Suh are active versus the Colts. Five other Eagles are not.
Following their Week 10 loss in primetime on Monday Night Football, the Philadelphia Eagles did exactly what we expected them to. They went back to work. Their vice president/general manager, Howie Roseman, decided to put in a little overtime. The result of that effort was the addition of two former Pro Bowlers, Linval Joseph and Ndamukong Suh.
At about 9 a.m. EST on the day of Philly’s tenth game of the season, one versus the Indianapolis Colts, we learned that Joseph will indeed play, but Suh’s status was up in the air. Head Coach Nick Sirianni informed NFL Network’s James Palmer that both are active for Week 11’s game. How much they’ll play is up in the air.
Take a look:
We’ve heard that Joseph and Suh have impressively digested a huge portion of the Eagles’ defensive playbook since their arrival. There’s no shock there. After all, both of those guys exceed 300 pounds. They’ve digested a lot in their day.
Sorry… That was an awful joke.
The point is this. The Birds haven’t gotten too high after their eight wins. We don’t expect them to lose confidence or spiral following a loss. We simply expect them to roll up their sleeves, which they did, and even at less than full strength, they’re good enough to beat the Colts on the road.
Eagles inactives versus Colts:
The Eagles released their game-day inactive 90 minutes before kickoff. The following Birds will miss Philadelphia’s tenth game of 2022, one versus a newly-inspired Colts team.
- Josh Jobe, cornerback
- Ian Book, quarterback
- Trey Sermon, running back
- Josh Sills, guard
- Sua Opeta, guard
There aren’t many surprises there. As you’re aware, Philly is without Dallas Goedert, Avonte Maddox, and Jordan Davis. All of whom are expected to be out of action for a while. A.J. Brown scared us last week with an ankle but is cleared to play.
Kickoff for this one is scheduled for 1 p.m. EST. Fingers are crossed that the Eagles get back on track and improve to 9-1 on the season.
