Nick Sirianni delivers Eagles fans good news for Sunday’s game
At Friday's Press Conference, Eagles Head Coach Nick Sirianni gave the latest updates about who will be available for Philadelphia heading into their home game this Sunday versus the Los Angeles Chargers and it is very good news:
If you are an Eagles fan, you should be excited to hear that Safety Anthony Harris, Wide Receiver Jalen Reagor, and Offensive Lineman Jack Driscoll are all available to play this Sunday. Anthony Harris is one of the best Pass Coverage Safeties in the NFL today and you are going to need him going up against the Chargers with their talent Quarterback Justin Herbert. Don't let the last two losses for the Chargers fool you, Herbert is still top ten in the NFL in Passing Touchdowns (16) and Passing Yards Per Game (284.9) so getting Harris back will be important for Jonathan Gannon's defense if they want to attempt to replicate the aggressive style they used in the win over the Detroit Lions.
With Brandon Brooks still out, the Right Guard position has been held down well by Jack Driscoll and the combination of him with Lane Johnson next to him on the right side of the Offensive Line has paid off big in the last couple weeks. If the Eagles plan to run the ball consistently again this week and keep averaging Five Yards Per Rush Attempt (Fourth Best in the NFL), then you want Driscoll out there on Sunday. While the Chargers have the worst Rush Defense in the NFL, their defense allowed the third fewest Rushing Yards Against last week against the New England Patriots and that is the Chargers first game coming off the Bye Week. So if the Chargers are adjusting and potentially getting better against the Rush Attack, the Eagles need their best Offensive Line available for this Sunday.
