Let's get to the Philadelphia Eagles links ...

Dallas Sucks - Weyerbacher
This one’s for the FANS! If there’s one thing that most of the NFC East can agree on, it’s that DALLAS SUCKS, so let us introduce you to the new unofficial beer of the 2017 season! Flavor forward, this brew was made for tailgating in parking lots, celebrating first downs and big hits, high-fiving friends and basking in the thrill of victory. This totally downable pale ale was brewed with our friends that bleed green at Jose Pistola’s!

Eagles Roster Projections: Predicting who makes the final cut - BGN
The newest edition of BGN Radio is here! (Episode #256). In this episode, we briefly recap the Eagles-Jets game, go over 53-man roster predictions, talk about NFL roster cuts, and more!

A doctor explains Nick Foles' injury - PhillyVoice
"It’s a strained flexor tendon," Foles said. "When you’re a throwing athlete, sometimes you have to deal with it, and a lot of throwing athletes have dealt with it." Indeed they have. We followed up with Dr. Mark Pollard, the Assistant Professor of Orthopedic Surgery at Cooper University Hospital to gain more clarity on flexor tendon injuries.

Final Roster Prediction - Iggles Blitz
I’m not a big fan of keeping Clement. Solid young RB, but not compelling in any way. He would be perfect for the PS. I would prefer to find a RB cut by some other team and add that player. I’m sure someone will be available that I like more than Clement. Cutting Bryce Treggs would be hard for me. The Eagles can put Sproles in at WR. Ertz and Burton can play WR. That’s why I think they’ll go light at WR. I think Treggs has had a good summer and would hate to cut him, but there is a numbers crunch.

Eagles In Prime Spot After Preseason -
This is how it’s going to work for the Eagles in the next two days: They’re going to reduce the roster to 53 players, not exactly as simple a cut-and-paste operation as you might think it would be. They might try to keep five running backs, with rookies Corey Clement and Donnel Pumphrey joining veterans LeGarrette Blount, Darren Sproles, and Wendell Smallwood (a young veteran, to be technical about it). Maybe they try to keep an extra tight end, understanding that Trey Burton can be an unrestricted free agent after the season and Brent Celek’s contract is up after 2018. They are going to go heavy where you don’t expect it, light where you thought of a heavy number, and they’re going to do trades. Oh boy, are they going to do trades, at least they’re going to be open to the very idea of doing them.

How garbage time affected RB/WR fantasy production - PFF
LeGarrette Blount is the only running back who made the leaderboard. A rusher needs to have a lot more CG time than garbage time to see this benefit, and that is really difficult to do. The Patriots did it last season, and recent history suggests they will likely do so again in 2017 to Mike Gillislee’s or Rex Burkhead’s benefit. Since 2009, pretty much all of their big backs have enjoyed some extra production because of the team’s high percentage of CG time — none more so than Blount — while their receiving backs have shown the opposite tendency.

Corey Clement awaits phone call after doing all he could to make Eagles - CSN Philly
Corey Clement walked off the MetLife field Thursday night knowing he did everything he could do to win a job. The rest is up to Howie Roseman. "It's like a re-draft," Clement said. "You either get a good phone call or a bad phone call. I've got a great head on my shoulders, and I don't think I'm looking forward to any bad news." Clement ran only four times for 16 yards in the Eagles' preseason finale against the Jets and finished the preseason with a modest 3.8 per-carry average. But over the last three games, he averaged 4.4 yards a pop and gradually was added to more and more special teams units, which is always a good sign for a young player.

Chicago Bears release Victor Cruz - Windy City Gridiron
But in case you missed any of the bigger name cuts, the Bears have released veteran wide out Victor Cruz. The Bears brought the 30 year old Cruz in a few months ago to add his savvy to a young receiving corps, but he wasn’t able to show enough during training camp or preseason. Perhaps he lost a little juice after suffering a torn patellar tendon in 2014 and a calf injury in 2015.

J.J. Watt wanted to raise $200,000 for Hurricane Harvey relief. He's topped $15 million - SB Nation
J.J. Watt was quick in helping organize relief efforts for Houston after Hurricane Harvey devastated the area. He has now raised over $14 million to help the region recover. Initially, Watt tweeted a video where he discussed the storm and the tragic damage it had caused in the metropolitan Houston area.
