The Eagles added rookie cornerback Sidney Jones to the injury report Wednesday with a hamstring injury.

Jones missed most of the season rehabbing after rupturing an Achilles during the University of Washington’s Pro Day in March. The Eagles activated the second-round pick for the regular-season finale, and he played 29 defensive snaps against the Cowboys.

The Eagles’ injury report was otherwise unchanged from Tuesday.

Linebacker Dannell Ellerbe again was limited with a hamstring injury.

Running back Jay Ajayi (knee), defensive end Brandon Graham (ankle), cornerback Jalen Mills (ankle) and tackle Halapoulivaati Vaitai (knee) remained full participants.

  1. Eagles are gonna regret not keeping this kid on IR for the rest of the season. He’s not gonna contribute in the playoffs and they lose the restricted free agent option. Howie has been on point with most of his moves but activating Jones was a miss.

  2. ” and they lose the restricted free agent option.”

    actually, they don’t. He would need to play in six games to be credited with an accrued season.

  3. Wrong. If they step foot on a field what so ever it goes against a yr on their contract. Vikes had that same question with teddy. If they wouldn’t have activated him his contract would toll but since they activated for the last few games it counts against his contract.

  4. Your wrong, check AJ McCarron as the real life example, Sidney Jones needs 6 games to get an accrued season, get you facts straight, to think for a minute that Howie Roseman doesn’t know the CBA and would give up a year of control for an exhibition game is beyond comical!

  5. 6 games is correct guys…
    From a site re nfl laws and bylaws…
    “In order to accrue a season, a player must be on full pay status for six or more regular season games.”
