UK_EaglesFan89 Posted August 18, 2020 Share Posted August 18, 2020 More details on Javon Hargrave’s injury Well, it could be worse. UPDATE: Yet another update on Javon Hargrave from NFL insider Adam Schefter. The Philadelphia Eagles revealed earlier today that starting defensive tackle Javon Hargrave is going to be out for "multiple weeks” due to an upper body injury. Now we have some more details on Hargrave’s status via ESPN’s Tim McManus: "Multiple” is pretty vague here but at least we know exactly what’s keeping Hargrave sidelined. P It’s unclear if Hargrave is a lock to play when the Eagles open their 2020 season in 27 days from now on Sunday, September 13. The team would sure love to not be missing the guy they signed to a three-year, $39 million contract early in free agency. It’s not like the Eagles’ cupboard is totally barren with Hargrave missing. Fletcher Cox is obviously one of the best interior defensive lineman in the NFL. The Eagles paid Malik Jackson big money last year to be a starter next to Cox. There are some promising young guys with potential in Hassan Ridgeway, Anthony Rush, and Raequan Williams. But for the Eagles’ interior pass rush to be as dominant as they want it to be, they need Hargrave back and healthy. It’s not just about the individual contributions he can make. It’s also about the Eagles trusting their non-Cox defensive tackle options to play more so they don’t have to burn out their Pro Bowl stater. The last two seasons have been very taxing for Cox as the Eagles were decimated with defensive tackle injuries. Here’s hoping Hargrave is able to return sooner than later. The Eagles can get by with him in the short-term but they need him for the long run. https://www.bleedinggreennation.com/2020/8/17/21372754/javon-hargrave-injury-update-news-eagles-defensive-tackle-line-philadephia-pectoral-multiple-weeks I have zero faith in this teams medical reporting and handling of injuries. In my mind he's definitely out week one and in fact probably the first 2 or 3 games at least. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
