Shark Bites

Eagles WR Nelson Agholor (knee) has been downgraded to out for Sunday's game against the Redskins. Philly has just 3 WRs available for tomorrow: Greg Ward, J.J. Arcega-Whiteside and Robert Davis.

Eagles RB Jordan Howard (shoulder) has been downgraded to out for Sunday's game against the Redskins. He's still waiting to get cleared for contact. Miles Sanders should continue to operate as Philly's lead back tomorrow, although RB Boston Scott could see more action after an impressive showing last week.

Eagles DE Derek Barnett (ankle) and CB Ronald Darby (hip flexor) are questionable for Sunday's game at Washington. Barnett missed practice all week after sitting out Monday night's win over the Giants. He seems like a poor bet even if he turns up active for the game. Darby sustained his injury in Friday's practice. We'll see about his status Sunday morning.

Eagles RB Jordan Howard (shoulder) remained limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Redskins. He still hasn’t been cleared for contact, so don’t expect him to play. That means another game as lead back for rookie Miles Sanders — although RB Boston Scott’s strong Week 14 showing adds some risk to Sanders’ fantasy outlook.

Eagles WR Nelson Agholor (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Redskins. He didn't practice all week, though, so don't expect him to play. That'd leave Greg Ward, J.J. Arcega-Whiteside and practice squad call-up Robert Davis as Philly's top 3 WRs. TEs Zach Ertz and Dallas Goedert should continue to play big roles in the passing game.

The Eagles have placed WR Alshon Jeffery on IR, officially ending his 2019 campaign. Jeffery suffered a Lisfranc injury in Monday night's game against the Giants, according to NBC Philadelphia's John Clark. The Eagles promoted WR Robert Davis from the practice squad to take Jeffery's place on the roster. Davis joins J.J. Arcega-Whiteside and Greg Ward as the team's healthy WRs.

Eagles HC Doug Pederson said Tuesday that WR J.J. Arcega-Whiteside (hamstring) is "fine" but that WR Nelson Agholor (knee) remains "up in the air" for Week 15. With WR Alshon Jeffery (foot) expected to miss the rest of the season, Arcega-Whiteside and Greg Ward are currently Philly's only healthy WRs. We'll see if Agholor is able to make it back for Sunday's game against the Redskins, but look for TEs Zach Ertz and Dallas Goedert to play big roles in that one regardless.

Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery's injury is "significant" and might cost him the rest of the season, according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo. We're still waiting for an official diagnosis on Jeffery, but it looked like a serious injury from the moment it happened. Fantasy owners shouldn't be counting on him the rest of the way.

Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery told the media he "felt something pop" in his foot during the 2nd quarter of Monday night's game against the Giants. The team is calling it a foot injury, which is better than an Achilles. But this obviously sounds like a serious issue. Jeffery is scheduled for an MRI on Tuesday. Philly is razor-thin at WR, with DeSean Jackson on IR, Nelson Agholor dealing with a knee injury and J.J. Arcega-Whiteside appearing to hurt his hamstring late in the Giants game.

Eagles RB Miles Sanders left in the 3rd quarter of Monday night's game against the Giants after hurting his right leg. He reportedly got checked out on the sideline before heading to the locker room. We'll keep an eye on his status. RB Boston Scott took over the backfield for the team's 3rd-quarter scoring drive, including the rushing TD to close it out.

Update: Sanders returned in the 4th quarter after getting treated for cramping.

Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery left Monday night's game against the Giants in the 1st half after hurting his right foot. He's questionable to return.

Update: Jeffery has been ruled out for the rest of the game.

Eagles RB Jordan Howard (shoulder) is inactive for tonight's game against the Giants. It'll be his 3rd straight missed game with the injury. His absence leaves a workhorse role to Miles Sanders.

Eagles WR Nelson Agholor (knee) is inactive for tonight's game against the Giants. His absence leaves more snaps and targets available for young WRs J.J. Arcega-Whiteside and Greg Ward.

Eagles DE Derek Barnett (ankle) is inactive for tonight's game against the Giants. If you had been waiting for him for your IDP lineup, then Josh Sweat is likely the highest-upside replacement available. Giants EDGE Markus Golden works as well, where he carries a DE designation.

Eagles DE Derek Barnett (ankle) is questionable for tonight's game against the Giants. He missed practice all week, and HC Doug Pederson said Barnett will likely be a game-time decision. If Barnett doesn't play, then Josh Sweat should see more playing time. He posted a half-sack in each of the past 2 games and 2 sacks over his past 4. Sweat has 3 sacks and 7 QB hits on the year in limited duty. He's available as a late fill-in if you've been planning to start Barnett in your IDP lineup.

Eagles RB Jordan Howard (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Monday night's game against the Giants. The Athletic's Zach Berman reports that Howard still hasn't been cleared for contact, so consider him a long shot to play Monday. That means another game as lead back for RB Miles Sanders, who's averaged 13.3 carries and 4.7 targets over the past 3 weeks.

Eagles WR Nelson Agholor (knee) is listed as questionable for Monday night's game against the Giants. He didn't practice all week and shouldn't be in your fantasy plans. Agholor's absence would be good news for TE Dallas Goedert.

Eagles RB Jordan Howard (shoulder) still hasn't been cleared for contact, HC Doug Pederson said Thursday. Howard has an extra day to get cleared ahead of Monday night's game vs. the Giants. But at this point, assume he won't play in that one. Howard's absence would again make Miles Sanders a RB2 with upside.

11:12am EST 12/1/19

Eagles TE Zach Ertz (hamstring) is active for today’s game against the Dolphins. He only got in a limited practice on Friday but reportedly played through this injury last week. There’s obviously increased risk here, but Ertz would be tough to sit in this plus matchup. Only Travis Kelce, George Kittle and Hunter Henry are ahead of Ertz in the Week 13 TE Rankings.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that Eagles TE Zach Ertz (hamstring) is "pushing to play" and "it looks like it’s going to happen." Ertz got in just a limited practice on Friday but reportedly played through this injury last week. He comes with elevated risk in Week 13 fantasy lineups but boasts plenty of upside in a plus matchup vs. Miami.
