The Eagles are re-signing RB Boston Scott to a 1-year, $1.75 million deal with $1.1 million guaranteed -- plus another $500,000 available via incentives. That kind of money doesn't guarantee anything in particular for Scott's role -- other than probably being on the team. He totaled just 87 carries and 16 targets in HC Nick Sirianni's 1st season. We'll see what the Philly backfield looks like as we move toward training camp. Scott's in the late-round RB mix in current best-ball drafting but doesn't merit special attention.

The Eagles have agreed to a 3-year, $45 million deal with former Panthers DE Haason Reddick, according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo. The deal includes $30 million in guarantees and could reach $49.5 million in total money. Reddick took a 1-year "prove it" deal with Carolina as a 2021 free agent -- and he proved it. Reddick followed a 12.5-sack breakout in Arizona with 11 more sacks and a career-high 18 QB hits with the Panthers. Reddick could see time at either end for the Eagles, who have a bit more sorting out to do at DE. Josh Sweat is coming off an emergent campaign -- that saw him play on the left side most often -- while Brandon Graham is coming off injury and heading into his age-34 campaign.

Eagles QB Jalen Hurts will have surgery today on the left ankle he injured in Week 12 against the Giants, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. The injury was reported to be a high-ankle sprain, though Hurts missed just 1 game (with the bye week mixed in). Hurts suffered a similar injury to his right ankle in 2018 at Alabama, requiring "tightrope" surgery to address it, according to Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer. It's not yet clear whether he'll have the same procedure this time. Pelissero reports that Hurts is expected to be ready for OTAs, and he returned to play Philly's final 5 game. So it appears the ankle should not be an issue going forward.

Eagles HC Nick Sirianni called WR DeVonta Smith “a number 1 WR” on Thursday. No surprise there, as Philadelphia just took Smith 10th overall. Sirianni praised Smith’s hands, competitiveness and ability to win 1 on 1s. While his 2021 usage proved inconsistent, Smith ultimately finished with a promising 103-64-916-5 line in 17 games. He's coming off the board as a high-end WR3 in early 2022 fantasy drafts.

Eagles GM Howie Roseman threw his support behind QB Jalen Hurts as the team's starter in Wednesday's end-of-season press conference. "We talk about Jalen and the growth he had, really as a first-year starter and second-year player and leading this team to the playoffs," Roseman said. "I’m tremendously impressed by his work ethic and his leadership. The last time we talked was during camp and we said we wanted to see him take the bull by the horn, and he certainly did that." Hurts completed 61.3% of his passes and averaged 7.3 yards per attempt with 16 TDs vs. 9 INTs in 2021, ranking 22nd among 31 qualifiers in QB Rating. He also led all QBs with 782 rushing yards and 10 TDs to finish 10th in fantasy points. We'll see if Philly's actions this offseason match Roseman's comments. If Hurts enters 2022 as the starter, he'll be a lower-end QB1 in fantasy drafts.

Eagles RB Miles Sanders (hand) put in a full practice on Friday and isn't listed on the final injury report for Sunday's Wild Card game vs. the Bucs. It'll be his first action since breaking a bone in his left hand back in Week 16. There's a chance that the issue impacts his pass-catching ability, adding some risk to Sanders' fantasy profile. RBs Boston Scott and Jordan Howard will also be available for the Eagles.

Eagles RB Miles Sanders (hand) remained limited in Thursday's practice. He's expected back for Sunday's Wild Card game vs. the Bucs, but we'll get another update on Sanders on Friday afternoon.

Eagles RB Miles Sanders (hand) was listed as a limited participant in Wednesday's practice. It's an estimation since Philly only had a walkthrough, but Sanders is expected back for Sunday's Wild Card game vs. the Bucs. RBs Boston Scott and Jordan Howard are not listed on the injury report.

The Eagles on Monday activated TE Dallas Goedert and many other players from the COVID list. The most fantasy-relevant names beyond Goedert included RBs Jordan Howard and Boston Scott, and LB Alex Singleton.

Eagles HC Nick Sirianni said Monday that he's "hopeful" to have RBs Miles Sanders (hand) and Jordan Howard (stinger) for Sunday afternoon's Wild Card game vs. the Bucs. It's surprising that he even mentioned Howard considering he played through that stinger in Week 17 before missing Week 18 on the COVID list. We'll keep you updated on the Eagles backfield throughout the week.

Bears edge Robert Quinn (shoulder) is active for today's game against the Vikings. Use him as planned in IDP leagues.

Eagles QB Jalen Hurts (ankle) is inactive for tonight’s game vs. Dallas. In his place, Gardner Minshew will make his 2nd start of the season.

Eagles TE Dallas Goedert was not activated from the COVID list and will miss Saturday night's regular-season finale vs. Dallas. He should be back for the Wild Card Round. TE Richard Rodgers was elevated from the practice squad and looks like Philly's Week 18 starter. He's in play in the 2-game DFS slate.

Eagles RBs Boston Scott and Jordan Howard were not activated from the COVID list and will miss Saturday night's game vs. the Cowboys. Both guys should be back for the playoffs. Philly elevated RB Jason Huntley, who will join Kenneth Gainwell in the backfield. We're expecting Gainwell to lead in touches.

Eagles RB Miles Sanders (hand) is out for Saturday's game vs. the Cowboys. HC Nick Sirianni said earlier this week that Sanders is expected back for the 1st round of the playoffs. RBs Boston Scott and Jordan Howard remain on the COVID list as of Friday morning, so rookie Kenneth Gainwell might be left as Philly's lead back on Saturday.

Eagles HC Nick Sirianni said Monday that he's hoping to get RB Miles Sanders (hand) back for the 1st round of the playoffs. In other words, he won't play in the regular-season finale. With RBs Boston Scott and Jordan Howard landing on the COVID list on Monday, rookie Kenneth Gainwell might be left standing as the Eagles' top RB in Saturday night's game vs. the Cowboys.

Eagles RBs Boston Scott and Jordan Howard joined a slew of teammates in testing positive for COVID on Monday. There's time for each player to return to the active roster ahead of Saturday night's game against the Cowboys. We'll see how this situation develops.

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports that "roughly a dozen" Eagles players tested positive for COVID on Monday, including TE Dallas Goedert, C Jason Kelce and DT Fletcher Cox. Last week's change to the league protocol gives all the players time to get back ahead of Saturday's game against the Cowboys. But the virus might also help nudge Philly coaches toward sitting these starters. The Eagles have little to gain in playoff positioning by beating Dallas in Week 18. We'll see what the team says on that front this week.

Titans WR A.J. Brown (calf) is not listed on the final Week 17 injury report. He missed Thursday’s practice but returned to a full workout on Friday. Brown is safe to get into fantasy lineups for Sunday’s game vs. the Dolphins.

Eagles RB Miles Sanders (hand) has been ruled out for Sunday’s game vs. Washington. RB Jordan Howard (stinger) is listed as questionable after getting in limited practices on Thursday and Friday. If Howard is able to play this weekend, he’d likely split backfield work with Boston Scott. If Howard is out, Scott becomes a strong RB2 play.
