NFC East Notes: Cowboys, Eagles, Redskins



Eagles HC Doug Pederson told reporters on Friday that they have “a nice, tight plan” for new WR Golden Tate this week.

“His ability to recognize and react to coverage,” Pederson said, via Pro Football Talk. “He’s a smart guy, obviously. One of the things that you see on film with him is his first-step quickness, then when you see it in person, it shows up. We all know about the yards after catch. He’s strong, former running back, things like that.”

  • Pederson said that RB Darren Sproles (hamstring) was 100 percent coming into this week before he suffered a setback: “I am optimistic that he can play, yes, I am. That’s the God’s honest truth.”
  • However, Pederson believes Sproles will come back this year, which is why he won’t be placed on injured reserve. (Mike Kaye)
  • The Eagles officially ruled out CB Sidney Jones (hamstring), CB Jalen Mills (foot) and RB Darren Sproles (hamstring) for Week 10’s game and list T Lane Johnson (knee) and DE Josh Sweat (hip) as questionable.
