MLB Joe Walker was placed on IR.

That opens a spot for CB Sidney Jones, the Eagles 2017 2nd round draft pick. I think the Eagles have to make a decision on his participation by early next week.

"Head coach Doug Pederson hinted broadly earlier Friday that Jones would be activated for the Eagles' meaningless game Sunday afternoon against the Cowboys"

WELCOME ABOARD SIDNEY JONES!

The Eagles activated Jones, the injured CB who was the Eagles 2017 2nd round pick. He'll play on Sunday.

I don't expect him to be active for the playoff game unless a DB is injured but this is still exciting to me.

When was the last time we had a good secondary, especially a good pair of corners. With Darby, Jones, Mills and Douglas I think next year will be the first time in more than ten years!

Before the injury, he was a top 15 pick. Rookie CB struggle early so I'm not expecting too much.

With Walker going to the IR, you'd think we need to get a LB from the PS for the playoffs.

We didn't have much LB depth even before he got injured.

As far as Sunday, he's fresh meat to take snaps away from the other guys and give them rest. That's fine by me. I can't see us keeping him on the 53 and being light at LB.

If he shows up and plays well he could earn a spot for the playoffs. Here's hoping.
