Three Important Eagles Return To Practice Ahead Of Chiefs Matchup
The Philadelphia Eagles had some important players return to the Practice Field on Thursday as they are preparing for their Monday Night Football matchup with the Chiefs in Kansas City.
Right Guard Cam Jurgens was back at practice this week and is on track to return to the starting lineup after missing the last five games. He was placed on Injured Reserve back in early October with a Foot Injury. Even though his practice window was opened back on November 1st, the Eagles decided to not play Jurgens against the Dallas Cowboys before the Bye Week. The Eagles Offensive Line should be back to full strength for this Monday Night's game.
Another important player back on the field for the Eagles on Thursday is Cornerback Bradley Roby. Originally brought in as a replacement for injured Starting Nickel Corner Avonte Maddox, Roby played in two games before sustaining a Shoulder Injury. The Veteran Cornerback missed the last three games before the Bye Week and he is an important reinforcement for an Eagles Defense that has to play the dangerous Chiefs' Offense in NFL Week 11.
Justin Evans was starting at Safety for the Eagles for the first three weeks this season before sustaining a Neck Injury that kept him out one week. But when he returned, he suffered a Knee Injury against the Los Angeles Rams that landed him on Injured Reserve. After missing the last four games, Philadelphia opened Evans' practice window and he could be activated for the Monday Night game in Kansas City.
Even though the Eagles have filled their void at Safety with two-time First Team All-Pro Kevin Byard, there are still depth concerns in the Defensive Secondary. Justin Evans can play both Safety and Nickel Corner positions so he would be a value depth player for Philadelphia as they enter the most difficult stretch of their regular season schedule.
