“Alshon has been a tremendous addition to this organization on and off the field,” the Eagles said in a statement. “We place a priority on making sure we are able to build the team around quality players like Alshon who embrace this team and this city the way he has. We are excited about his future here.”
Chris Hogan, New England Patriots, shoulder, (Q), Monday night: This is the first time in over a month that Hogan has not been ruled out in advance of the game … and it appears that he has a legitimate chance to take the field Monday night in Miami. Hogan took a brutal hit to his right shoulder back in October and has not practiced until this week. He has now missed five games while rehabbing in the background. This week he returned to practice and said he felt like a kid going back to school. More importantly, he was able to get through consecutive practices three days in a row, all as a limited participant.
Dallas Cowboys defensive back Orlando Scandrick left Thursday’s 38-14 win over the Redskins with a back injury that will force him to miss additional time.
According to NFL Media, a Friday MRI revealed two transverse process fractures in his back. He is expected to miss at least one game.
The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported Scandrick initially suffered the injury on the third play of the game but played through the pain until late in the fourth quarter.
Scandrick had the bones fractured in his back on the third play. He played until late in fourth quarter before being removed. Wasnt diagnosed until today, per source
Scandrick’s injury is similar to those dealt with by Raiders quarterback Derek Carr earlier this season and former Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo in 2016.
Anthony Brown will likely step back into the starting lineup in Scandrick’s absence.
