Agholor gets IV due to “feeling sick,” but his official status is unchanged

The whole store got the flu.

Not really, but enough Eagles have been under the weather this week to make folks wonder whether they’ll all be at 100 percent. One Eagle was sufficiently below 100 percent on Saturday to need the intervention of a needle.

Receiver Nelson Agholor had IVs on Saturday morning after “feeling sick and weak,” via Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. Rapoport added that Agholor is “already feeling better and should be fine for the game.”

Given that the Eagles didn’t add Agholor to the injury report, he’d better be fine for the game. The obligation to disclose injuries and illnesses extends beyond the issuance of the final report on Friday. The absence of any adjustment to the injury report means there’s no doubt Agholor will play.

  1. I predict the patriots winning on a last minute pass interference penalty that sets up a field goal or 7-8 pass interference penalties or 10-11 questionable holding penalties by the Eagles that keep them in the game.

  2. I remember when Seth Joyner had the flu before the infamous “House of Pain” game in Houston. The Eagles trainer, Otho Davis, gave him some concoction, and Joyner was on fire that game having played one of the best games of his life. I wonder if they can give the same formula to the current batch of Birds that are stricken with the flu.

    Are the Patriots behind this?
    =============================
    I’m sure at least one ‘doctor’ believes they are. And the refs, of course.

  4. The Pats are giving the Eagles the flu and the refs are poised to help the Pats. Cry of the losers 26 hrs before the game the Eagles are going to lose.

  5. Been bit of flu in Pats too, but they never talk about it – but nor will they make excuses either.

  6. The only good that can come from this game is to have both Brady and the pretender for the Philthy team both being knocked out of the game and then to have the third string QB’s playing.

    Then how would you know about it? You must be the team doctor, I guess. It’s not like the eagles are calling the media over to relay the message to everyone that some players are sick. They have to list that stuff on the injury report. No excuses. I guess Malcolm butler must be making excuses with him getting sick as well.

  8. “The Eagles trainer, Otho Davis, gave him some concoction, and Joyner was on fire that game having played one of the best games of his life”

    Yeah back in those days it was likely black beauties or some other type of amphetamine.

  9. ” Are the Patriots behind this?”

    Yes yes of course. Belichick and the Pats are behind the nationwide flu epidemic that’s been raging for the last couple months. Just on the off chance they would get to the Super Bowl and on the off chance they might have fewer players infected than whoever they were facing.

    Right.

    Some of you people need psychiatric help. Seriously.

  10. Flugate! Once a cheater, always a cheater. It’s amazing the length that the Patriots will go in order to find a cheating and unfair advantage. Classless organization.

    Some concoction? And then he’s flying around the field?

    Sounds like a dirty bit of cheating to me!

    You really should tell everyone what team that you root for when you post silly comments like that. That way Pats fans wont have to assume that fans of the other 31 teams are all dimwits. It would be better if you just made the fans of one team look stupid.
