Three starters miss practice as the Eagles address Henry Ruggs’ situation.
At the first practice ahead of Week 9, the Philadelphia Eagles were without four players. The injury report featured defensive tackle Fletcher Cox (knee/rest), wide receiver Jalen Reagor (ankle), and defensive tackle Javon Hargrave (shoulder).
All three starters were classified as DNPs, as was wide receiver J.J. Arcega-Whiteside (ankle) (did not participate). Although the knee ailment was a new event, seeing Cox’s name on there is nothing new because he routinely takes veteran rest days. Hargrave fought a shoulder ailment all week and yet managed to play against Detroit (31 snaps, or 50 percent ).
The injury to Reagor is regarded to be more serious. On the Eagles’ opening scoring drive, he hurt his ankle badly and had to leave on a cart. Nick Sirianni, the head coach, didn’t have any quick information on the second-year receiver.
On November 1, Sirianni said, “We’ll see what happens this week.” “We’re optimistic for this week, but we’ll see how it goes.”

At practice, Jack Driscoll was one of just six people allowed to participate. He injured his thumb against Detroit and was replaced at right guard by Nate Herbig. If Driscoll can’t bring himself back to 100 percent health, that would be the plan once more. The offensive line’s veterans put a lot of faith in Herbig.
“Every time Nate is called up, he performs admirably,” said right tackle Lane Johnson. “And he’s one of the brothers around here,” says the narrator.
