Observations

  • Jordan Mailata’s snap count percentages through preseason games: 100%, 100%, and 93%. The team is clearly trying to have him soak up reps while he can since he won’t have the chance in the regular season.
  • Josh McCown played 45 snaps just several days after preparing to begin the season as an ESPN analyst.
  • Nate Herbig and T.J. Edwards are clearly the undrafted rookie free agents with the best chance of making the 53-man roster. The Eagles are giving them lots of playing time to prove themselves.
  • Good to see Corey Clement was able to handle 35 offensive snaps in his first game back from injury.
  • Alex Singleton’s had a nice summer but Edwards appears to be ahead of him on the depth chart, especially when you look at that special teams snap disparity (18 to five).
  • Rasul Douglas and Sidney Jones were the starting outside corners in base defense with Avonte Maddox coming off the field.
  • A little curious that Wendell Smallwood didn’t get any offensive playing time. Maybe he would’ve played if the game wasn’t cut short but it’s still somewhat odd he didn’t get any work earlier on.
  • The Eagles clearly saw enough out of Miles Sanders to not further risk injury to him in the preseason. He fielded the opening kickoff return before calling it a night.
