As is customary in the fourth NFL preseason game, the Philadelphia Eagles starters will not play against the New York Jets on Thursday night. There are also a few backup/depth players sitting out due to injury.
The following Eagles players have been ruled out and will not play against the Jets:
Wide receiver Josh Huff (shoulder)
Chris Polk (hamstring)
Quick take: It is disappointing to see that Polk, who has missed of the summer with a slightly torn hamstring, isn't able to play against the Jets. As final cuts loom and with other Eagles running backs, such as Matthew Tucker and Henry Josey, excelling in Polk's absence... his future with the team remains to be seen.
Huff is still out from a shoulder injury he suffered in the Eagles' preseason game against the New England Patriots. Huff is safe to make the team but it's unclear if he will be ready to play once the regular season starts.
