Welcome to this week’s edition of the Eagles Weekly Recap. Coming off yet another loss, the Eagles are looking to turn back the clocks to their early success of 2016, starting with a dangerous match-up this afternoon. Let’s get into it:
- This afternoon, the Eagles will host Matt Ryan and the Atlanta Falcons. The big story of today’s game involves the ever-so-dangerous duo of Ryan and wide receiver Julio Jones against a weakened Eagles cornerback corps. This match-up will be a true test to see just how well Jim Schwartz’s defense can hold up against a top-ranked offense.
- Speaking of the Eagles’ cornerback corps, cornerback Leodis McKelvin was said to have a setback regarding his previously-injured hamstring. He is currently listed as questionable for today. Also on the injury front, defensive tackle Bennie Logan will return this afternoon after missing time with a groin injury.
- Following the release of wide receiver Josh Huff, the Eagles have signed cornerback Aaron Grymes off their practice squad to fill the open spot on the 53-man roster.
- As for Huff himself, the former Eagle found a new home in no time as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers signed him to their practice squad earlier this week.
That’s it for this week. Stay tuned with Total Sports Live for the latest involving the Philadelphia Eagles.
