It Looks Like Sidney Jones Is Playing Sunday Against Dallas

Chris Jastrzembski - December 30, 2017

Per Ian Rapoport:

Yesterday, there appeared to be growing optimism that Jones would be activated sometime before Sunday’s regular season finale and play. That picture got a whole lot clearer when the Eagles put Joe Walker on injured reserve with a neck injury, creating a roster spot that would let Jones join the team.

We now have at least one reason to watch a game that doesn’t really matter that much besides pride. That is if Doug Pederson doesn’t make him a healthy scratch at the last minute, which I hope doesn’t happen.

Sunday will mark Jones’ first game since a 24-7 loss to Alabama in the Peach Bowl last New Year’s Eve, a span of 366 days. Enjoy some of his best plays from college:

Could Sidney Jones Actually Play Sunday?

Chris Jastrzembski - December 29, 2017

Oh?

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.

Barack Obama Praises Chris Long Playing for Free

Chris Jastrzembski - December 29, 2017

Chris Long has played a big role on the Eagles’ defense this year despite being a backup defensive end.

In 15 games, the 32-year-old has five sacks, the most since 2013, and a career-high four forced fumbles.

He was signed to a five-year deal during the offseason, but the Eagles have the chance to part ways after this season. From his performance this year, that probably won’t be the case.

He made a base salary of $1 million from his contract this year, but he won’t get a penny from that. During the season, he gave away his first six paychecks to fund scholarships in his hometown of Charlottesville, Virginia. He used his final 10 checks to start up Pledge 10 for Tomorrow, which will help kids in the three NFL cities he’s played in (St. Louis, Boston, and Philadelphia) with educational opportunities.

That got the attention of former President Barack Obama, who shared some of his favorite stories from the past year: Continue Reading

Chris Long Tells Rams Fans to Fill Their Stadium

Chris Jastrzembski - December 13, 2017

If you don’t follow Chris Long on Twitter, you should. He pretty much tweets about whatever he wants whenever he wants. He’s also an Award Winning Listener.

But nevertheless, some people were trying to get on him about his decision at the end of the game to celebrate with Eagles fans, along with his teammates, at the LA Coliseum.

From that video alone, there were five players that jumped into the crowd which was dominated with Eagles colors.

But Long was the only one that got pushed off by Rams fans, and he wasn’t happy about it, as the video shows. He spent his first eight years with the franchise when they were in St. Louis, not Los Angeles.

One LA reporter tried to get a story out of him, and Long gave her an answer. Continue Reading
