Jordan Matthews (ankle, questionable) said he will "definitely" play in Week 14 against the Redskins.

Matthews has practiced fully the last two days and should be all set to resume his role as the Eagles' primary slot receiver. Last week marked the first absence of J-Matt's three-year career. Fantasy owners should view him as a WR3 this week.
Dec 9 - 2:28 PM

Dorial Green-Beckham (oblique) did not practice Friday.

DGB was listed as questionable Friday morning, but this practice almost certainly means he will sit out his week. Nelson Agholor should retain his every-down role with Green-Beckham out.
Dec 9 - 12:18 PM

Dorial Green-Beckham (oblique) was listed as questionable for Week 14 against the Redskins.

It seems unlikely he will play after missing the first two days of practice, but perhaps he can get in a limited session Friday. With Jordan Matthews expected back, Green-Beckham will not be a fantasy option even if he suits up.
Dec 9 - 10:58 AM

Ryan Mathews (knee) was listed as questionable for Week 14 against the Redskins.

Coach Doug Pederson labeled Mathews "ready to go" on Thursday. Mathews should return to his lead role, but the Eagles have been unable to establish a running game while being blown out the last two weeks. Mathews will be a risky FLEX play in his return.
Dec 9 - 10:55 AM

Jordan Matthews (ankle) was listed as questionable for Week 14 against the Redskins.

He should play after being upgraded to full in Thursday's practice. The Redskins have struggled against slot receivers this season, and Matthews is one of the few reliable options in the passing game. He is a solid WR3.
Dec 9 - 10:53 AM

Updating an earlier report, Jordan Matthews (ankle) was upgraded to full at Thursday's practice.

There's no longer any doubt about his Week 14 status, not that there ever was. Matthews will be a WR3 Sunday in his return from a one-week ankle injury.
Dec 8 - 3:20 PM

Dorial Green-Beckham (oblique) remained sidelined Thursday.

DGB is looking unlikely to suit up against the Redskins, keeping Nelson Agholor in the mix opposite Jordan Matthews. DGB could be formally ruled out on Friday.
Dec 8 - 3:19 PM

Jordan Matthews (ankle) is practicing Thursday.

He looked sharp in his return to practice Wednesday after missing Week 13 and should see plenty of Redskins rookie slot CB Kendall Fuller on Sunday.
Dec 8 - 11:59 AM

Coach Doug Peterson said Ryan Mathews (knee) is "ready to go" for Week 14.

"He's good to play," Pederson said. "Cleared and ready to go." Mathews returned to practice for the first time in two weeks Wednesday. The Eagles struggled to run with him sidelined, rushing for just 134 yards combined. Mathews will resume lead back duties for Sunday's game with Washington.
Dec 8 - 10:11 AM

Dorial Green-Beckham (oblique) is not practicing Wednesday.

DGB took a big hit from Bengals WLB Vontaze Burfict in the Week 13 loss and suffered an "oblique contusion." His status for Week 14 is up in the air.
Dec 7 - 11:00 AM

Jordan Matthews (ankle) returned to practice Wednesday.

Coach Doug Pederson expects Matthews to play against the Redskins after he missed the Week 13 blowout loss to the Bengals. Matthews will have to avoid setbacks, which he was unable to do last week, but he should be fine.
Dec 7 - 10:59 AM

Ryan Mathews (knee) returned to practice Wednesday.

Jordan Matthews (ankle) also returned. Mathews has missed the previous two games with a sprained MCL, but coach Doug Pederson expects him back this week. The Eagles' rushing offense has provided nothing in those two contests as they've been blown out by double-digits in both games.
Dec 7 - 10:55 AM

Eagles DC Jim Schwartz said the team's cornerback play has been lacking.

"Facts of life, our corners aren't playing very well," said Schwartz. He also said the whole team is "in a slump." The Eagles' defense has played well at times this year, particularly on their home soil, but their cornerbacks have consistently underachieved. Rookie Jalen Mills ranks dead-last in PFF's cornerback grades while Nolan Carroll and Leodis McKelvin haven't been much better. Schwartz said the team won't blitz as heavily going forward because the Eagles have been so vulnerable in man coverage. Plagued with issues on both sides of the ball, it looks like the once-promising Eagles will finish this year on a low note.
Dec 6 - 12:11 PM

Eagles coach Doug Pederson said Jordan Matthews (ankle) should return to practice Wednesday.

Matthews was able to get in a limited practice last Thursday, but he was held out on Friday after getting "a little sore." A return Wednesday would tentatively put Matthews on track to play, but another setback cannot be ruled out. Devoid of reliable weapons in the passing game, the Eagles need Matthews healthy as soon as possible.
Dec 5 - 12:17 PM

Eagles coach Doug Pederson said Ryan Mathews (knee) is expected to practice Wednesday.

Mathews has missed the last two games with an MCL sprain. A practice Wednesday would put him on track to play against the Redskins, but Pederson said just last week the injury "could linger." Mathews should be considered questionable.
