Dave Weinberg on Eagles/Browns
Dave Weinberg brings you the keys to the game for Eagles vs. Browns. He thinks not to worry about DeMeco Ryans at MLB, Jamar Chaney is hobbled by a hamstring injury. Also, don't expect Vinny Curry to dress as a defensive end, and Jaiquawn Jarrett remains fighting for position on the depth chart. Dave has the Eagles winning 28-17. Dave Weinberg covers the Eagles for The Press of Atlantic City.
Every Friday at 4:30 we give you "The Outside View" of the Eagles opponent for that weekend. Today we had on Will Burge, 850-ESPN in Cleveland and he said to expect a suspended Scott Fujita to be on the field Sunday after a panel of judges overruled the suspensions. The Browns were supposed to be without Joe Haden and Fujita, now they are back and expected to be with the team. Burge said just like Philadelphia, the team gives little to no information regarding injuries and position battles, etc. Follow Will Burge on Twitter.
Barrett Brooks Talks Eagles
Our football coverage continues with former Eagles OL and Super Bowl Champion Barrett Brooks for Fridays at 4:05. As a former lineman Brooks talked about the Eagles LB core, he thinks Ryans will come to play and he'll step into his role as the dominant LB that he is. Also, Brian Rolle and Jamar Chaney will be much better than they've been. Also talked about the injury to Jason Peters and what the means for LeSean McCoy.
