It has now been 11 days since the Philadelphia Eagles have played a football game. That gave us plenty of time to talk about this next tilt and just about everything else, didn't it? We talked about injuries, players who are returning from injuries, the injured reserve, and concussions. We discussed this game and the two teams playing in it more times than we can remember.
Philly has a new punter! That made a lot of people happy! Unfortunately, every time we talked to a New York Jets fan, they informed us that the new guy, Braden Mann, isn't much better than the guy who left, Arryn Siposs. Oh well... At least there's some mystery with unfamiliarity.
The Philadelphia Eagles release their Week 3 inactives list ahead of their Week 3 clash with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
We knew running back Boston Scott and wide receiver Quez Watkins would miss Philly's third game of the season, one versus the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. All that was left was for us to receive word on the other ten Birds who had been named on Friday and Saturday's injury reports.
It appears that Reed Blankenship is active. So is James Bradberry. The latter is expected to start t slot cornerback.
Shortly after 4 p.m. EST, Philly announced the elevation of wide receiver Devon Allen and punter Braden Mann from the practice squad to the active roster for tonight's game. As expected the inactives report was released 90 minute ahead of kickoff.
The Buccaneers released their final inactives report as well.
This game ought to be a lot of fun. This is an early kickoff for Monday Night Football, but make no mistake about it. Eagles fans everywhere will be locked in.
Bookmark this one. We'll list any reported injuries below as they occur.
The Eagles will finish this one without Sydney Brown too it appears!
Landon Dickerson missed the close of this one because of a knee injury. Fingers are crossed that he isn't dealing with anything serious.
