Eagles Injury Update: Lane Johnson back at practice

Updated: 4:04 p.m.

Lane Johnson showed up to Thursday’s practice with a helmet and was a limited participant. 

That’s good news after Johnson did not practice on Wednesday. He’s dealing with a high ankle sprain that he battled through a week ago against the Giants. 

He’ll likely try to tough it out again this Sunday. 

All four players listed as limited on Wednesday were back at practice on Thursday: Carson Wentz (back), Haloti Ngata (calf), Jason Peters (biceps), Derek Barnett (shoulder). 

It was a good sign to see Peters on the field once again. He’s going to attempt to play through a partially torn biceps on Sunday and going forward. 

Wentz just missed a few snaps on Wednesday; it's nothing serious. 

Here's the full injury report from Thursday: 

Did not practice: D.J. Alexander (quad), Nate Gerry (ankle, knee), Corey Graham (hamstring), Sidney Jones (hamstring), Darren Sproles (hamstring), Rasul Douglas (not injury related) 

Limited: Lane Johnson (ankle), Jalen Mills (hamstring), Haloti Ngata (calf)

Full: Derek Barnett (shoulder), Jason Peters (biceps), Carson Wentz (back) 

Mills is a new addition to the report. Good news that Barnett and Peters were full participants.

We now know what Eagles reportedly offered for Jalen Ramsey

We now know what Eagles reportedly offered for Jalen Ramsey

We all knew the Eagles wanted Jalen Ramsey. Now we know how much. 

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Eagles offered the Jaguars a first and second-round pick for the Pro Bowl cornerback and “thought they had a chance to land him.” 

Unfortunately, for the Birds, the Rams came in with two ones and a four and got the player. 

The Eagles were unwilling to give up more than a one and a two, according to Schefter, who also said the Jags came back to the Eagles and gave them a chance to match the offer from Los Angeles. The Eagles declined. 

For what it’s worth, I’m on record saying I would have done the deal if I were Howie Roseman. Ramsey is still just 24 and in the prime of what could be a Hall of Fame career. Guys like that don’t become available very often. 

With that said, I also understand why Roseman didn’t pull the trigger. The Eagles have drafted just five players in each of the last two drafts and they paid their quarterback this offseason and need to supplement that contract with cheap players. 

“There is no disappointment,” Doug Pederson said earlier this week. “[It’s] hard to comment on that because obviously he's not on our team. Yeah, [I have] a lot of respect for him. [He is a] good player. [I’m] happy for the Rams obviously. He'll be a great addition. They have some corners that are banged up. They obviously traded one, so he'll fit in well there.

“Listen, we're getting guys back, too, on our team, and I'm excited about the guys we have coming back and getting in the mix. We're starting to get healthy as well, so that's the encouraging part from our side.”

Schefter also noted that the Eagles are getting healthy at their cornerback position. Jalen Mills and Ronald Darby are back or nearly back. Avonte Maddox is expected to return and Cre’Von LeBlanc could eventually return off IR. So help is coming this season. 

But I didn’t view Ramsey as simply a rental player. He could have become a cornerstone of the franchise, assuming they could re-sign him. Oh well. Roseman has nine days until the trade deadline.

Eagles at Cowboys live: Highlights and analysis from NFL Week 7 game

Stream the game here

11:22 a.m.: The Eagles-Cowboys rivalry is still very real. I’m not sure if these two teams really don’t like each other or they just play into what they know is supposed to be a rivalry. And I really don’t care. Because it’s still good. 

This year, we had Doug Pederson saying the Eagles were going to win and then DeMarcus Lawrence saying the head coach should shut is ass up and then Lane Johnson posted to social media about the comments from Lawrence. It’s a lot of fun. 

Earlier this week, I checked in with Kamu Grugier-Hill, who last year said the Cowboys were chokers to see if he had any declarations this time around. 

“No,” he said, while laughing. “Not this … nope. You ain’t gonna get me.”

But Grugier-Hill clearly doesn’t like Dallas. He gets it. 

“I love playing Dallas,” he said. “This is my favorite game, obviously, besides if we go back to the Super Bowl. There’s something about this game that gets the best out of us. It’s a rivalry game, everyone knows what’s going on, everyone knows the deal. It’s a kill or be killed mentality. It’s fun. It’s real fun.”

Earlier this week, Carson Wentz was asked for his favorite Eagles-Cowboys memory. Wentz is 2-3 against Dallas. 

“I don’t really have one quite yet,” Wentz said. “Let’s hope it’s this weekend. How about that?”

10:44 a.m.: Good morning, everyone! 

I had some great BBQ last night and slept in a little late. Still … there’s too much time before Sunday Night Football. So go to your pumpkin patches, finish your errands and then get ready for the highlight of your weekend. I’ll be getting to AT&T Stadium later, but for now, catch up on some of the key matchups in this game.
