No disrespect is intended to Ndamukong Suh or Linval Joseph. They’re partially responsible for the Philadelphia Eagles Week 11 win versus the Indianapolis Colts. They’ve also helped steady the defensive ship some. Still, even with some of the punch that they’ve given the Birds along their defensive line, most of us ask ourselves the same questions when Philly is gashed by an opposing rusher. When is Jordan Davis eligible to return again? Will he be back when he is?

After 12 weeks of NFL action, no team or player for that matter is completely healthy. Bodies are racking up at an alarming rate for Philly, but there is reason for positivity. Most of the key guys who are injured will return at some point during this season. That includes the six-foot-six, 336-pound defensive tackle.

Eagles head coach Nick Sirianni provides an update on Jordan Davis and Chauncey-Gardner Johnson.

It seems like it has been six months since Jordan Davis left the playing surface at Lincoln Financial Field during a Week 8 game versus the Pittsburgh Steelers. Truthfully, it hasn’t been that long.

Four games have passed since we’ve last seen the 2022 NFL Draft’s 13th-overall selection, but he’d be eligible to return in Week 13 versus the Tennessee Titans if the medical staff deems him ready. The question is simple. Will he be ready?

Nick Sirianni spoke with members of the Philadelphia sports media on Monday. It looks like we’ll know more on Wednesday, maybe.

Everyone’s fingers are crossed.

During the most recent airing of Sunday Night Football, the Eagles also lost talented safety Chauncey Gardner-Johnson. He’s the league leader in interceptions, but he may be out for a while. As expected, less than 24 hours later, we haven’t gotten anything other than “we’re still working through that”. He didn’t state whether a trip to the injured reserve is a possibility.

Week 13 provides yet another challenge for the Eagles’ defense. As mentioned earlier, a hard-nosed and physical Tennessee Titans team visits The Linc on Sunday.

C.J.’s availability for that one seems doubtful, but it would be nice to have as many hands on deck for that one as humanly possible i.e. Jordan Davis. Perhaps you’ve heard. The Titans have this running back, and we hear that he’s pretty good.

Philadelphia figures to answer some questions about their running game or create a few more during the contest. Let’s hope they do the former. The fate of the season could rest on the defense and special teams.
