Eagles DT Timmy Jernigan (NFI List) Cleared To Practice

Eagles DT Timmy Jernigan, who is on the non-football injury list, has been cleared to practice and took part in Monday’s walkthrough.

This officially opens a three-week window of time for him to be added to the Eagles’ active roster.

Back in April, Jernigan underwent surgery for a herniated disc in his back and was expected to miss four-to-six months with the issue.

Jernigan, 26, is a former second-round pick of the Ravens back in 2014. Baltimore later traded Jernigan and a third-round pick to the Eagles in return for a third-round pick last year.

Jernigan was in the final year of his four-year, $4.382 million contract that included $2.126 million guaranteed when the Eagles signed him to a four-year extension, $48 million extension that includes $26 million fully guaranteed last year.

In 2017, Jernigan appeared in 15 games for the Eagles and recorded 29 tackles and 2.5 sacks. Pro Football Focus had him rated as the No. 35 interior defender out of 122 qualifying players.
