Four Eagles absent from practice with illness

Eagles Insider

Four Eagles players missed Friday’s practice with undisclosed illnesses, the team announced.

Wide receivers Jalen Reagor and Deontay Burnett, cornerback Rasul Douglas and edge rusher Shareef Miller were all absent from practice at the NovaCare Complex.

Another player who was listed with an illness on Thursday, edge rusher Josh Sweat, returned to practice Friday.

Also, tight end Zach Ertz missed practice and is “day-to-day” with what the team is calling an “upper-body” injury.

Boston Scott, Sidney Jones and Dallas Goedert each missed a third day of practice Friday as the Eagles held their first live padded session of camp.

The Eagles described the Scott and Jones injuries as “lower body” and Goedert’s as “upper body.” They are each considered day-to-day. 

Those three have not practiced since Tuesday. The Eagles are off Saturday and return to work Sunday at the NovaCare Complex, so they will all have had at least four days off.  

Safety and special teamer Marcus Epps also missed practice with a lower-body injury and is listed as day-to-day. 

With Miles Sanders (lower body) listed as “week-to-week” and Scott out, 2017 Super Bowl hero Corey Clement has been working with the first offense at running back. The other running backs on the roster are Elijah Holyfield, Mike Warren and Adrian Killians, who has also gotten some work at receiver.

With Goedert and Ertz both out Friday, the only tight ends on the practice field were Josh Perkins, recent waiver-wire pickup Caleb Wilson and and undrafted rookie Noah Togiai.

 

Defensive linemen Derek Barnett (ankle) and Javon Hargrave (pec) both remain out indefinitely. The Eagles list Barnett as “week-to-week” and Hargrave as “multiple weeks,” which is considered more serious than “week-to-week” in Eagles injury parlance.
