Derek Barnett Injury Updates

The Eagles have ruled DE Derek Barnett out for today's game against the Cowboys after he suffered a calf injury in Friday's practice. With DE Josh Sweat also out, Vinny Curry looks like the starter opposite Brandon Graham for an upside sack matchup.

Eagles DE Derek Barnett returned to a full practice Wednesday. Barnett missed Week 1 with a hamstring injury that also cost him a large chunk of training camp. But it sounds like he'll be ready to face the Rams on Sunday. That will be particularly helpful, as DE Brandon Graham is in the concussion protocol and DE Vinny Curry landed on IR this week with what HC Doug Pederson called a "significant" hamstring injury. Philly also got DT Javon Hargrave back for a limited workout Wednesday. The free-agent addition missed all of camp with a pectoral injury. The Eagles are likely to ease him back in.

Eagles DE Derek Barnett and DT Javon Hargrave are out indefinitely with injuries, according to Reuben Frank of NBC Sports Philadelphia. The team lists Hargrave -- a big-money free-agent addition -- as out for "multiple weeks" with an unspecified upper-body injury. Barnett is listed as "week to week" with a lower-body injury. Barnett has lost 12 games to injuries over the past 2 years, since joining the starting lineup. Philly sports solid depth at his position. Hargrave could be a tougher blow if he's out into the regular season. The Eagles let DT Timmy Jernigan walk on the open market after signing Hargrave. Jernigan reached a deal over the weekend with Jacksonville, after the Jags lost DL Rodney Gunter to retirement. Neither Barnett nor Hargrave will be worth a look in most IDP leagues before returning to the field.

Eagles DE Derek Barnett (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Cowboys. He missed the past 2 games with the injury and managed just 1 limited practice this week. Combine that with a negative sack matchup vs. Dallas, and Barnett doesn't belong in your IDP lineup even if active.

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 DE Derek Barnett is having season-ending shoulder surgery, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Barnett sat out Week 5 with the injury but then returned for the past 2 games. Clearly, though, it was determined he should have the issue repaired. The Barnett loss obviously hurts, but Philly runs deeper than most teams on the D-line and should be fine from a fantasy standpoint. Michael Bennett could be in line for more snaps at Barnett's right DE spot, and we could see more of rookie Josh Sweat as well.
