The talk has ended. Then again, there wasn't as much discourse as we're used to. We haven't seen any bulletin board material. Jerry Jones kept his mouth shut. That's different... The Philadelphia Eagles and Dallas Cowboys meet at 4:25 pm EST, and confidence is soaring on both sides.
Both sides are also a little shorthanded.
The Eagles and Commanders announce their Week 8 inactives ahead of Sunday's game.
The Eagles announced on Friday that cornerback Bradley Roby (shoulder), tight end Grant Calcaterra (concussion), and Cam Jurgens (foot) will sit Week 9's game out. Boston Scott is also out because of a personal matter. We all hope that everything is okay on that end.
Jalen Carter (back), Jordan Davis (hamstring), Sua Opeta (hip), Jack Stoll (ankle), and Milton Williams (shoulder) were all full participants at Friday's practice session. James Bradberry (thigh) was limited. All appear to be set to play on Sunday.
The Cowboys' injured reserve houses nine players. They are as follows: Offensive tackle Josh Ball, cornerback Trevon Diggs, CB C.J. Goodwin, wide receiver David Durden, WR John Stephens Jr., tight end Peyton Hendershot, linebacker DeMarvion Overshown, LB Leighton Vander Esch, and OT Matt Waletzko.
Two Cowboys were designated two players as being 'questionable; offensive tackles Chuma Edoga (ankle) and Tyron Smith (neck). Philly and their rivals released their final injury reports 90 minutes ahead of kickoff.
Philly's secondary is healthy. So is the defensive line. That's the first time we have said that in a while. That's also good because all hands will need to be on deck for this one.
The Cowboys and Eagles are set to exchange some pleasantries. It should be a fun three hours.
Bookmark this one. We'll keep you updated on any reported injuries as they occur.
Updates (1st quarter):
Fletcher Cox went down early but walked off under his own power. Jordan Davis appears to have aggravated his hamstring injury. Stay tuned!
Cowboys wide receiver/returner KaVontae Turpin (ribs) was questionable to return, but he emerged from the Cowboys' medical tent after seven minutes and was on the field during a Cowboys go-ahead drive in the second quarter. Milton Williams jogged into the locker room shortly thereafter.
Following the Cowboys' final drive of the second quarter, we have some bad news.
Bad news came later as he was ruled out and Dallas Goedert left the game in the second half with an injury. Jalen Hurts spent some time in the medical tent during the break after the third quarter, but QB1 looks to be fine.
