Jordan Howard is questionable for Monday night

The Eagles have had more than their fair share of injuries this year. They are relatively healthy for a must-win Monday night showdown against the Giants.

Only linebacker Kamu Grugier-Hill is out, with a concussion. The list of players with the questionable label includes running back Jordan Howard (shoulder), receiver Nelson Agholor (knee), and defensive end Derek Barnett (ankle).

Howard, who practiced on a limited basis all week, has missed the last three games — all losses. He had been performing well before that, with 96 and 82 rushing yards in wins over the Bills and Bears, respectively.

Left tackle Lane Johnson missed practice on Friday and Saturday following the passing of his grandmother, will play Monday night.

The 5-7 Eagles can force a tie atop the NFC East with a win over the Giants. An upset by New York could lead to chaos, especially if Washington somehow finds a way to extend its winning streak to three at Lambeau Field. That would leave the division at Cowboys 6-7, Eagles 5-8, Washington 4-9, and Giants 3-10, with three games left.

    Getting an extra 3rd doesn’t help Philly with how bad we draft.
    I simply do not understand why Howard is so devalued. Dude is a very solid workhorse in a time when that type of RB is hard to come by.

  2. Eagle fans are delusional and always have been. He isn’t going to get a contract worthy of a 3rd round comp pick. Why do you think the Bears traded him away?

  3. Carson is going to pad his stats against a terrible Giants team and then pat himself on the back post-game talking about how confident he was in his ability to turn the team around.

    The team is delusional as their fanbase.
