NFC East Notes: Cowboys, Eagles, Giants, Redskins

Cowboys

  • Cowboys VP Stephen Jones was asked about the possibility of re-signing WR Dez Bryant and said: “Don’t necessarily see that at this moment, but we’re always looking for ways to improve. Obviously we’re focused on the guys that are on our team at the moment.” (Jon Machota)
  • Todd Archer reports Cowboys DT Maliek Collins suffered an MCL sprain late in Sunday’s win over the Giants, but he could still be available for Week 3’s game against the Seahawks.

Eagles

The Eagles announced Monday that QB Carson Wentz has been medically cleared and will start their Week 3 matchup against the Colts.

Eagles HC Doug Pederson explained that he’s “not going to coach scared” even though Wentz is returning from a serious knee injury.

“Think about the game yesterday,” Pederson said, via Pro Football Talk. “How many times did Nick get hit? It’s part of the game. The thing is I’m not going to coach scared. I’m not going to coach paranoid. I’m not going to go in thinking, ‘Oh no, we can’t do ‘this’, we can’t do ‘that’.’ We just have to continue to go play and I [have] to coach that way. That’s where the confidence with the team comes, by doing that. If there’s opportunities to max the protection and do some things there, we’ll do that by game plans, by design. But I don’t think that things are going to change too much.”

Giants

Giants QB Eli Manning told reporters after Sunday night’s loss to the Cowboys that their offensive scheme can take some time to get going.

When you have new players, a new scheme, a new coach, sometimes it takes a little bit of time, especially for your first game on the road,” Manning said, via NorthJersey.com. “It can take a little bit to get your rhythm and get things going, so we just have to keep working and make sure everyone can figure it out with the coaches to do better, and do differently to put us in a better position.”

Redskins

  • Redskins HC Jay Gruden told reporters that RB Rob Kelley may need to undergo surgery for a toe injury and will be out at least a month. (JP Finlay)
