With starting tight end Zach Ertz, one of the rare offensive skill-position players who hasn’t missed a game due to injury this year, questionable with hamstring injury for Sunday’s game at Miami, the Eagles have promoted a tight end from the practice squad.

Josh Perkins has joined the active roster, the Eagles announced on Saturday morning. He appeared in nine games last year for the Eagles before landing on injured reserve. Cut before the start of the 2019 season, the Eagles re-signed him to the practice squad.

The Eagles also activated cornerback Cre'von LeBlanc from injured reserve. He suffered a foot injury in training camp, and he has missed the first 11 games of the season.

With the Cowboys losing on Thursday, the Eagles can climb into a tie atop the NFC East with a win at Miami. With the Cowboys beating the Eagles in Dallas and the Eagles having the easier schedule down the stretch, the division title quite likely will hinge on the Week 16 rematch in Philly.

  1. Nick Foles has a QBR of 48 and is being exposed as the journeyman he really is. He’s also injury prone and has never finished a 16 game season. Eagles kept the right QB. Carson has no receivers and the ones he has don’t know the routes.

  2. Everyone keeps saying that its gonna come down to the game in week 16, but that’s presuming an AWFUL lot of both of these teams. You’d assume the Eagles would beat Miami, Washington, NYG twice, but you’d also assume that they’d beat the Falcons or the Lions, too, or that they’d lose to the Packers and Bills. This team is an enigma.

    It’s also presuming that the Cowboys don’t lose another game. They could easily lose to the Bears or the Rams or both, given the fact that they could very well be demoralized and given up on Jason Garrett.

  3. No need to bash Nick. He will always be beloved for leading the Birds to their first Super Bowl win.
    However, it is clear that Carson is a much better QB. His regression this year is primarily due to the depletion of talent. The concern is he is making the challenges more significant by trying to force big plays.
    The Eagles could have won each of the last two games simply by taking what was offered and minimizing mistakes.
    Eagles will run the table and be a tough opponent playing the SeaHawks at home.
    That is all.

    ===================

    The Cowboys are in a bit of a death spiral right now and I hope the Bears can continue it. Despite being mostly healthy the Cowboys have really suffered from inexplicable coaching decisions at crucial times and Dak getting rattled. Now their starting RG is out for the year further weakening the offensive line.

    The Bears wouldn’t be able to keep up in a shootout but the Bears should be able to pressure Dak much like the Pats and Bills.

    I think there is a decent possibility of the Cowboys going 0-2 in their next 2 games.
