Philadelphia Eagles hostile lineman Lane Johnson and wide recipient Alshon Jeffery left Monday’s 23-17 additional time prevail upon the New York Giants with wounds and didn’t return.
Mentor Doug Pederson said they would have a superior thought of how genuine the wounds are on Monday.
Jeffery was taken to the storage space on a truck in the wake of enduring what the group called a foot damage. Jeffery was not reached on the play yet left the field limping before tossing his cap down and entering the therapeutic tent. They at that point sat in the passenger seat of a truck that headed down the passage.
Jeffery entered Monday with 43 gets for 430 yards and four touchdowns.
The Eagles were at that point without harmed wide collector Nelson Agholor. J.J. Arcega-Whiteside and Greg Ward were the main wide beneficiaries left for the Eagles.
Quarterback Carson Wentz was as yet ready to arrange two touchdown drives in the subsequent half to delete a 14-point shortage, and tossed a match dominating TD to tight end Zach Ertz in additional time to pull the Eagles (6-7) even with the Dallas Cowboys in the NFC East.
“It’s not easy when you have that many new faces out there playing in a must-win game against a division opponent,” Pederson said.
“Carson does get a lot of credit, but at the same time, we made some plays on defense that kept us in there and we were able to pull it out.”
Johnson went down when Wentz was thumped into their in the subsequent quarter. Johnson, an All-Pro in 2017, endured a harmed left lower leg and was likewise hauled away the field. Halapoulivaati Vaitai had their spot at right handle.
New kid on the block running back Miles Sanders was hampered by leg damage in the subsequent half yet said a short time later that they’d be fine. Boston Scott got a greater outstanding task at hand therefore and completed with 156 generally useful yards and a touchdown.
The Eagles face the possibility of being down two of their top hostile players in Johnson and Jeffery as they start a last push toward the postseason, starting Sunday in Washington.
“If that’s the case, the confidence that each of these guys gained tonight with our backs against the wall was huge for us,” Wentz said.
