  Eagles | Nick Foles needs to improve    Fri Oct 31, 01:10 PM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles knows that he needs to improve and limit his turnovers on game days. "A few plays, fundamentally I just missed it," Foles said. "I think I just have to continue to work through practice and in the game, just trust it. Trust my footwork, trust the pocket. Just because I made a few mistakes, I'm not going to not throw it when I don't have my feet under me. It's decision-making where I really have to get better."

  Eagles | Darren Sproles expected to play    Fri Oct 31, 12:37 PM

Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles (knee) practiced in full Friday, Oct. 31, and is probable for Week 9 against the Houston Texans.

Footballguys view: Sproles is a "what the heck flex" play, with a better chance of big plays on the turf in Houston than he has on grass at home.

  Eagles | Friday injury report    Fri Oct 31, 12:28 PM

Philadelphia Eagles S Nate Allen (hamstring) and WR Brad Smith (groin) are questionable for Week 9 against the Houston Texans. CB Brandon Boykin (hamstring), TE Brent Celek (back), OG Todd Herremans (biceps), C Jason Kelce (hernia), LB Mychal Kendricks (calf), WR Jeff Maehl (foot), LB DeMeco Ryans (groin) and CB Jaylen Watkins (wrist) are probable. All players practiced in full Friday, Oct. 31.

Footballguys view: Kelce is going to be a huge addition to the line, and Herremans is going to try to play through his biceps injury. Kendricks is also getting healthier and should help the Eagles defense. Allen has been a major liability in the secondary at times, so if he's out it shouldn't be a big deal for the Eagles.

  Eagles | Darren Sproles practicing    Thu Oct 30, 01:15 PM

Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles (knee) is participating in practice Thursday, Oct. 30.

Footballguys view: We expect Sproles to play this weekend against the Houston Texans, but we're not expecting a big day for him. Throw him in as a low-end RB3 or a high-end RB4 for the best value.

  Eagles | Darren Sproles fully practices    Wed Oct 29, 02:02 PM

Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles (knee) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Oct. 29.

Footballguys view: Sproles is going to be back this week people. Fantasy owners need to realize how Sproles' return will alter the target distribution. We feel Jeremy Maclin is more than fine--and he should be in your lineup. Sproles' return takes the shine off of Riley Cooper and Jordan Matthews as 'what the heck' flex candidates.

Philadelphia Eagles OG Todd Herremans (biceps), who tore his biceps in Week 8, said he wants to try and play in Week 9 against the Houston Texans. However, he could miss the rest of the season since surgery hasn't been ruled out. OG Dennis Kelly would likely start in Herremans' place this weekend if he doesn't play.

  Eagles | Darren Sproles fully practices    Tue Oct 28, 02:22 PM

Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles (knee) fully participated in practice Tuesday, Oct. 28. Sproles said he is hopeful to play this week, but is not sure of his status until he gets more practice in.

Footballguys view: Sproles should be back out there for the Eagles in the near future. When he returns, the targets in the passing game will be distributed differently...and it will negatively impact the number of targets that secondary receivers like Riley Cooper sees.

  Eagles | Nick Foles loses in Arizona return    Sun Oct 26, 08:51 PM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles completed 36 of his 62 pass attempts for 411 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in the Week 8 game against the Arizona Cardinals. His 62 pass attempts tied the franchise record set by former QB Randall Cunningham in 1989. Foles is also the first Eagles QB with nine interceptions through seven games since Cunningham, also in 1989.

Footballguys view: Foles won't throw 62 passes again soon, but the Eagles have become a much more pass heavy than they were last year. He'll have another stiff test against the Texans next week, but the numbers should come.

  Eagles | Jeremy Maclin has giant performance    Sun Oct 26, 08:48 PM

Philadelphia Eagles WR Jeremy Maclin posted 12 receptions for 187 yards and two touchdowns in the Week 8 game against the Arizona Cardinals.

Footballguys view: Maclin took a huge hit in this one and returned, fueling the Eagles passing game against the vulnerable Cardinals secondary. Maclin isn't quite a WR1, but he obviously has top five upside in every week he takes the field.

  Eagles | Jeremy Maclin returns to game    Sun Oct 26, 06:30 PM

Updating a previous report, Philadelphia Eagles WR Jeremy Maclin (head) was able to return to the Week 8 game against the Arizona Cardinals after leaving earlier to be evaluated for concussion.

Footballguys view: Maclin is having a big game and could land a big blow for his owners in a week where some high scores are going to go down in flames because of the scoring sprees around the league.

  Eagles | Chris Polk could see bigger role    Sat Oct 25, 12:34 AM

Philadelphia Eagles RB Chris Polk (hamstring) could see a bigger role in the offense in Week 8 against the Arizona Cardinals if RB Darren Sproles (knee) is unable to play. Sproles is questionable for the game, while Polk is listed as probable.

Footballguys view: Polk was arguably the best receiving back in his draft class when he came out of college in 2012. We love his natural skill set, but he's had trouble staying healthy as a pro. Offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur said Friday, Oct. 24, that the team would use Polk in the same ways they've used Sproles this season.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles leads the league with 10 turnovers this year (seven interceptions and three fumbles). Last season, he had 29 touchdown passes, including the playoffs, and just two interceptions.

Footballguys view: Foles is struggling this year, but the Eagles are 5-1, so they'll take that. They'll continue to work with Foles in order to make him comfortable as a passer.

  Eagles | Darren Sproles out a few weeks    Mon Oct 13, 11:37 AM

Updating previous reports, Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles (knee) is believed to have avoided an anterior cruciate ligament tear. However, he's expected to miss a few weeks due to the knee injury.

Footballguys view: With Sproles out, it will change the target structure in the passing game for the Eagles. We could see more passes thrown toward the tight ends in the coming weeks. Sproles won't be vulturing away any carries for LeSean McCoy either, so a larger role could be there too.

  Eagles | LeSean McCoy hits century mark    Sun Oct 12, 11:37 PM

Philadelphia Eagles RB LeSean McCoy carried 22 times for a season-high 149 yards in Week 6 against the New York Giants, although he was held out of the end zone again. He also chipped in with two receptions for five yards.

Footballguys view: McCoy found more big holes than he did in the first five games combined. He's going to be just fine for his owners and he gets a well-timed bye to rest and carry over this momentum to the last ten games of the season.

  Eagles | Darren Sproles unhappy about news    Sun Oct 12, 10:58 PM

Updating a previous report, Philadelphia Eagles RB Darren Sproles (knee) had the stability of his left medial collateral and anterior cruciate ligament tested by a team orthopedist, and sideline reporter Michele Tafoya said 'whatever news he delivered' to Sproles reportedly made him 'unhappy.'

Footballguys view: The Eagles are on bye next week, so we might not get an update on this injury right away, but Sproles' owners should prepare for a multi-week absence and feel like they dodged a bullet if he is back soon.
