Practice Notes: Eagles, Jets, Cardinals

The Eagles got positive news on the injury front regarding three of their biggest weapons Wednesday, according to Ian Rapoport. Wide receivers Alshon Jeffery (ankle) and Nelson Agholor (knee) are full participants in practice today and running back Jordan Howard (shoulder), while not yet back to practice, is “trending the right way.”

All three players missed Sunday’s game against the Seahawks, Jeffery and Howard have not played since November 3rd. Philadelphia’s offense has struggled mightily in recent weeks. Most of the blame has fallen on the shoulders of quarterback Carson Wentz, but it would surely help their signalcaller to have some more weapons.

Here’s some more notes on practice status around the league:

  • Jets head coach Adam Gase told reporters he expects cornerback Darryl Roberts is expected to return after missing two games with a calf injury, according to Rich Cimini of ESPN. Right tackle Chuma Edoga will not practice today and left tackle Kelvin Beachum will be limited as well. The Jets are in the midst of a three-game win streak in hopes to rebound from what looked like a lost season.
  • While Cardinals offensive tackle Jordan Mills was designated for return from the injured reserve earlier today, cornerback Robert Alford, though, will not be joining his teammate, according to Darren Urban of AZCardinals.com. Alford, a six-year veteran, fractured his tibia prior to the season and was placed on injured reserve with the possibility to return. However, per Urban, that possibility is no longer an option.

    Actually, I read the tweet from Darren Urban about Robert Alford differently: “Cards haven’t closed door on IR return for CB Robert Alford, but he remains out.” To me, that says that he’s not back right now, but he may still be back.

    I really want to start Wentz against that Miami D, but he has been awful the past few weeks.

      Last thing you want to do is bench him. That’s not going to help his psyche. Miami May be a good team to help him get out of his funk if he can have a monster game. Giants to follow and then Redskins. Hopefully he can beat up on some bad teams to get his confidence back in time for Dallas week 15.

          I’m getting a butt kicking in the Spotrac league so I doubt he would value my suggestion…lol.

    Great, the Eagles got positive news on the injury front…2 guys that were supposed to play last Sunday sat out and after watching their season go on life support decided they’ll play this week. Welcome back Alshon & Nelson!

      Might be a bit early to suggest life support. As weird as it sounds the Eagles could still finish as the NFC 2nd seed and earn a playoff bye with the Seahawks clinging to the 6th seed.
