Quick observations

  • DeAndre Carter got the start in the slot with Nelson Agholor out. He made the most of his playing time by leading the team in receiving yards (73 on four receptions). He could be the leader for the sixth receiver spot.
  • Isaac Seumalo got a lot of playing time in part because he filled in at three different spots: center, guard, and tackle.
  • Wendell Smallwood received the bulk of playing time at running back. He actually looked solid with 53 yards on 12 attempts (plus two receptions for 14 yards). Josh Adams, who is also competing for the fourth running back spot, was productive in limited playing time as well.
  • After only playing four snaps last week, Jordan Mailata got a good chunk of playing time against Cleveland.
  • Billy Brown did not log a single offensive snap despite being one of only three tight ends active for the game. Doesn’t seem like the best sign for him.
  • Avonte Maddox outsnapped Sidney Jones, but he was also playing late into the game. Jones was working with the first team at nickel corner.
  • Bruce Hector (and Aziz Shittu) played 10 more snaps than 2017 sixth-round pick Elijah Qualls. Hector’s presence will seemingly spell the end of Qualls’ hopes to make the 53-man roster. Maybe he can be kept around on the practice squad.
  • Corey Nelson managed eight snaps in the dress rehearsal game. It’d be surprising if the Eagles’ free agent signing makes the team.
