DT Tim Jernigan makes his return to practice

5 November 2018 Eagles News


On Monday, the Philadelphia Eagles announced that DT Tim Jernigan took part in a walk through practice for the Eagles.

Although it’s just a walk through, it makes the fan base wonder if he’s ready to go sooner than later. Right now, Jernigan is on the Reserve/Non-football injury list, which means for the next 21 days he’ll be available for practice. However, the Eagles will have to decide in the next three weeks if they’re going to activate him, put him on the IR, or keep him on the Reserve/Non-football injury list for the rest of the year. Back in April, Jernigan underwent surgery on a herniated disc in his back. Jernigan’s injury was said to have happened during an offseason workout in March.

Currently, the Eagles are rolling thin at the defensive tackle spot with Fletcher Cox, Haloti Ngata and Treyvon Hester holding down the fort. Last week the Eagles released DT Bruce Hector to make room in the nest for WR Golden Tate. The release of Hector should be a good sign that they think Jernigan is ready to be activated soon.
