Eagles feel good about Tim Jernigan, Jason Peters playing against Cowboys

Eagles defensive tackle Tim Jernigan made his first appearance of the 2018 season against the Giants in Week 12 after getting the green light to return to action after recovering from back surgery.

Jernigan was fine against the Giants, but didn’t play against Washington in Monday night’s win because he had back spasms during pregame warmups. Jernigan was initially called questionable to return and was eventually ruled out well before the end of the game.

Eagles head coach Doug Pederson provided a positive update on Jernigan’s condition on Tuesday. Pederson said Jernigan should be ready to play against the Cowboys next Sunday afternoon.

Pederson also had an optimistic report about left tackle Jason Peters. Peters, who is playing with a torn bicep, limped off the field and missed the final five snaps, but Pederson also said it looks good for his chances of facing Dallas in a big game for the Eagles’ playoff hopes.

  1. Please all come back so there are no excuses for being swept on the season by the Cowboys. With that Dallas D, the Eagles may look to sign a few free agent referees. Or slip Randy Gregory some goodies.

  2. That is very good news! Cowboys are playing well but The Eagles showed signs of the elite team they were last year. If they play like that in Dallas they have very good chance to come out of there with a win. The Eagles gave away 17 to 21 points last night by poor play calling and poor execution three different times inside the 5 years line.
    They easily could have put up 42/45 on The Redskins last night.

    I wouldn’t be so smug about that.

    Pause. The Eagles beat Giants and a depleted Skins team with a 3rd string QB. That does not constitute showing signs of the elite team from last year.

    No they didn’t.

    1) If ifs and buts were candy and nuts…
    2) This is what separates good teams from bad teams

  7. @allsyntax – You do realize how depleted the Eagles team has been this year? Do you see our secondary?

    In addition, Schwartz has lost it. He’s having these guys play 10 yards off WR’s and rarely blitzes QBs.

    We will still win this game, but it won’t be pretty. Dak is an absolute joke of a QB and I hope he stays in Dallas for at least a decade. Elliot – another story…

    ……..

    You do realize Dak and Wentz have very similar stats based on very similar pass attempts, right? It’s close in all categories. Wentz has thrown 4 more TD’s this year (more INT’s too), but Dak has run 5 or 6 in. People that say Dak is “terrible” or a “joke” are beyond clueless. He’s a very solid QB only 2.5 years in. Wentz has had more badly missed throws this year than #4 has.

  9. You cowboy fans are so dumb. After losing to the titans you were all trashing your team. Now you are all high and mighty lol.

    NEWSFLASH! Whoever wins this division is going 1 and done. So good luck with that lol. I have more faith in the eagles regaining elite status next year than I do Dallas.

  10. Wentz is lightyears better than dak. These comparisons need to stop lol. It’s not even close!!!

    Haha. Obviously you have started on the eggnog early this year. Another Eagles fan trying to justify the choking away of the season by the “defending” paper champ Eagles. The Cowboys punched the Eagles in the mouth in Philly, and will do the same in Dallas. The Dallas D is ballin’ right now, and the Offense has stepped it up since the Cooper signing.

    Philly is weak, and as good as Wentz and Ertz have played, the rest of the offense (and the D) has played mediocre at best. Beating a Washington team was no crowning achievement, and Grandpa Peterson slashed the Philly D for a huge TD run. Expect more of the same with Elliott toting the rock on Monday Night.

    Sorry Eagle fans (and watch out for snowballs, Santa), but your Christmas season isn’t going to be very jolly as one and done paper champs.

    WOW. What confidence and faith you have in the “defending” SB champs. Only fair weather fans trash their team, which ALL fanbases have those. The Cowboys are peaking at the right time, and Philly peaked last year. They don’t have the execution or the continuity they had last year as the current paper champs. Dallas doesn’t have the pressure of the “defending” champ title, and Philly will be watching the playoffs at home.

    Dallas smacked the Saints, and will do the same against Philly in Dallas. If the Dallas D can play like they did against the Saints, they have a chance against ANY team in the playoffs. There are no guarantees, yet coming on here criticizing and calling fans “dumb” only shows your demeaning character. Stay classy, bro.
