Eagles rule out nine players before Dolphins game

Who’s in and who’s out.

NFL: Philadelphia Eagles-Training Camp Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

The Philadelphia Eagles have ruled out nine players ahead of their third preseason game against the Miami Dolphins. The following players are OUT and will not play.

QB Nick Foles

DE Brandon Graham

LB Jordan Hicks

TE Billy Brown

DT Destiny Vaeao

OL Josh Andrews

WR Paul Turner

CB Sidney Jones

DT Beau Allen

It’s worth noting Wendell Smallwood isn’t on this list, which means he WILL play against the Dolphins tonight. That’s good news for Philadelphia because the 2016 fifth-round pick missed the team’s first two preseason games. Now he’ll get a chance to prove himself.

The only “surprises” on this list are Brown and Vaeao. Both players practiced this week but maybe they got banged up at some point on Tuesday. Brown is pushing for a roster spot so this is unfortunate for him.

Hicks and Graham are out after suffering injuries during Monday’s practice. Neither player is seriously hurt and they’re both expected to be ready for Week 1.

Foles hasn’t played a single preseason game this summer. That’s an underrated concern.
