NFC East Notes: Cowboys, Eagles, Giants, Redskins

Cowboys

Eagles

Michael Bennett referred to his new role with the Eagles as a “test of character” after seeing just under 55 percent of the defensive plays so far this season.

“I think it’s always a test of character when you have to reinvent yourself or do something that you’re not comfortable with or find a way to find some comfort in it when you’re not comfortable, but to find a way to contribute in any type of way,” Bennett said, via ESPN.com. “When you’ve got great leadership like Malcolm JenkinsFletcher CoxChris Long, all these great players, you just have to find a way to contribute on the team.”

“You always want to play more, but in this situation you just want to win,” Bennett added. “When you have a good quarterback, a good running game, you just want to win the game. We have a great defense, and I think for me it’s just wanting to win a championship. Playing with some great players, and the opportunity to play here is always a blessing.

Giants

Giants WR Sterling Shepard mentioned that he’s “looking good” for Sunday’s game after having a cyst removed from his back and missing Wednesday’s practice.

“Looking good,” Shepard said, via the New York Daily News. “[We’ll] see how the rest of the week goes… I wouldn’t say [I feel] perfectly fine. I’m getting back to myself, though.

  • The New York Giants officially ruled out TE Evan Engram (knee) and DE Olivier Vernon (ankle) for Sunday’s game against the Panthers.
