NFC East Notes: Cowboys, Eagles, Giants, Redskins


  • Cowboys HC Jason Garrett said Monday that he still has confidence in OC Scott Linehan and he will remain the play caller. (Clarence Hill)

  • Eagles HC Doug Pederson said Monday that RBs Jay Ajayi and Darren Sproles are still day to day, but he expects both of them back this Sunday, barring any setbacks. (Jeff McLane)
  • Pederson said they’re still evaluating S Rodney McCleod and his status for Week 4: “We’re still honestly evaluating him today [and] probably tomorrow. I’ll probably have a better update for you on Wednesday quite honestly. He’s still being evaluated.” (Mike Kaye)


Giants HC Pat Shurmur explained that the decision to bench RT Ereck Flowers was more about give Chad Wheeler an opportunity to show what he can do.

“It’s probably more about Chad and less about Ereck,” Shurmur said, via the New York Post. “I just felt it was the time for Chad to get an opportunity to play. A couple of times he got beat, but Chad fought his way through it. We’ll see where we go from here.”
