Eagles lose Arryn Siposs to injury on a strange-looking special teams play
Well, this isn’t good. The Philadelphia Eagles are rolling in East Rutherford, New Jersey versus the hated New York Giants, but a 17-point lead at halftime hasn’t come free of charge. There are injuries to report.
At the time of this story being written and published, Kyron Johnson is questionable to return to Week 13’s divisional clash. He left for the locker room due to a shoulder injury. Undrafted rookie safety Reed Blankenship limped off of the field and was carted off due to a knee injury. That’s a bummer as he was enjoying some success with increased playing time.
Philly has also lost its punter.
Arryn Siposs leaves the Eagles’ Week 13 game versus the Giants with an apparent ankle injury.
The unfortunate thing about our great country’s best game is injuries can’t be avoided. We don’t often see injuries to punters, but they do happen.
Arryn Siposs, on a strange-looking sequence, had a punt blocked following a sack of Jalen Hurts that pushed the Eagles’ line of scrimmage back toward Philadelphia’s goal line. He showed some awareness by scooping it and trying to advance it. He almost reached the line to gain, but he was nicked up on the play. He like Blankenship has been carted to the locker room.
Britain Covey has stepped in as the holder for Jake Elliott’s attempts on special teams. Philly was able to convert on a three-point try toward the end of the first half.
We also saw Jake practice a few punts on the sideline. That could come into play down the stretch, but it appears, for now, that the Birds might need to find a punter this week. He’s been ruled out of the remainder of Week 13’s game. We’ll have to wait and see what happens in the coming days.
