The Eagles will welcome back a number of players for tomorrow’s matchup against the Cowboys. Geoff Mosher reports (via Twitter) that Philly will activate tight end Dallas Goedert. Meanwhile, NFL.com’s Mike Garafolo tweets that the team is also activating wideout Jalen Reagor, offensive lineman Jason Peters, linebacker T.J. Edwards, and safety Rudy Ford.
Considering the injuries that the Eagles are dealing with on offense, both Goedert and Reagor will be especially welcome additions. Following a 2019 campaign that saw him haul in 58 receptions for 607 yards and five scores, Goedert continued to produce through the first two-plus games of the 2020 season, hauling in 13 receptions for 138 yards and one score before succumbing to an ankle injury. The former second-rounder managed to put up that solid production playing behind Zach Ertz, but with the veteran currently sidelined, Goedert should have a clear path to snaps.
Reagor, the 21st pick in this past year’s draft, was relatively productive through his first two career games, hauling in five catches for 96 yards. He suffered a ligament tear in his thumb in late September, and he was subsequently placed on IR. He’ll join a receivers corps that’s currently led by former sixth-rounder Travis Fulgham.
Peters, 38, signed a one-year extension with the Eagles this past summer. He started each of Philly’s first three games before being sidelined with a toe injury. With offensive tackle Lane Johnson dealing with a knee injury, Peters could immediately slide back into the starting lineup.
Edwards, a 2019 undrafted rookie out of Wisconsin, appeared in all 16 games as a rookie. He compiled 15 tackles and one forced fumble in four starts this season before suffering a hamstring injury in Week 4. Ford has served exclusively on special teams in three games for the Eagles this season.
