Could Sidney Jones Actually Play Sunday?

This would be a pleasant surprise to end the season.

Earlier in the month when Jones returned to practice, defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz said it was “like the first weeks of OTAs” for the second round pick after suffering a torn Achilles tendon in March. It’s been about nine months since suffering the injury.

Jones was a potential top 10 pick in the NFL Draft before he got hurt. He slipped to the second round where the Eagles grabbed him with the 43rd overall pick.

Doug Pederson said they’ll make a decision after practicing today and tomorrow.

I wouldn’t mind him being active or playing on Sunday, and it would help him in his development as a player. The biggest plus in activating Jones would be the extra practice time he would get, especially with the Eagles getting a first round bye.

The Eagles reportedly have until January 3 to activate him off IR. They would need to cut one player to make room for him.

  1. The Cuz came in a very close 2nd to Cataldi. He has been gaining ground all football season. WIP is very concerned. We couldn’t be happier with the growth of Ants show. The B&C line is a huge hit, getting tons of play online. Cuz isn’t going anywhere anytime soon unless it’s a national gig.

      1. Too late. The Cuz wrote “the Mighty Mack’s”, big time Hollywood movie. Ant made like 8 million dollars off that shit. Plus , I’m pretty sure he fucked Carla Gugino back then.

        1. Gargano gets a co-story credit. Someone else wrote the screenplay.

          The movie also got a 6.5 on IMDB so it’s not exactly Boogie Nights.
