NFC Notes: Eagles, Falcons, Giants, Redskins



Eagles HC Doug Pederson told reporters on Wednesday that rookie CB Sidney Jones is still rehabbing and there’s currently no timetable for him to return.

“Sidney is still rehabbing and going through that procedure there with his rehab,” Pederson said, per Adam Caplan. “There is no timetable on Sidney.

Again, he is doing well and he is on schedule, but at the same time, we aren’t going to stick him out there and risk anything further. But he is doing extremely well with his rehab.


  • The Atlanta Falcons announced Wednesday that RB Devonta Freeman has officially cleared the concussion protocol and return to practice.


Archie Manning tells Gary Myers of the New York Daily News that being benched by the Giants is breaking Eli Manning‘s heart.

“This breaks his heart,” Archie said. “And that’s okay. It’s supposed to.”

According to Archie, Manning never considered playing for another team until he was benched.

“I don’t know,” Archie said. “There is no sense doing a lot of speculating from his standpoint. There is no way of knowing. I don’t think Eli ever envisioned, until now, playing for somebody else. That’s the love he has for the Giants. It is kind of unique and stronger than most. It’s not just the game he loves to play. He loves to play for the Giants.”
