It was a stress-free Sunday with the Eagles already notching their Week 4 win on Thursday Night Football, but there were plenty of other former Philly players to keep track of.

Two former Eagles backup quarterbacks were called in to play after their starters were injured, LeSean McCoy had another impressive game, and Mychal Kendricks is still notching sacks for Seattle.

Here’s how some other former Eagles did in Week 4:

Former QBs get some playing time

Aside from Nick Foles — who is still on IR as he recovers from a broken collarbone suffered in Week 1 — two other former Eagles quarterbacks are still on active rosters. Both Matt Barkley (Bills) and Chase Daniel (Bears) serve as the No. 2 quarterbacks for their new teams and both saw playing time on Sunday.

Barkley went in for Josh Allen in the fourth quarter against the Patriots, when Allen was sidelined with a concussion. Barkley finished the day 9-for-16, 127 yards and one interception.

The Bears lost starting quarterback Mitch Trubisky fairly early in their contest against the Vikings after landing weird on his left arm. The QB went into the medical tent before heading to the locker room, which meant it was Chase Daniel’s time to step up.

Daniel did well early, finding Tarik Cohen for the first points of the game.

Daniel finished the game completing 22-of-30 pass attempts for 195 yards and the one touchdown — plus, he had five carries for four rushing yards. In addition to his touchdown pass, he also had a long 37-yard pass to Javon Wims.

And just a reminder — despite whether or not he continues as the No. 1 with Trubisky out — Daniel has made himself a nice little career as a backup.

Another good week for McCoy

Seriously, reuniting with Andy Reid — and a functioning offense — has done wonders for LeSean McCoy, who had 11 carries for 56 yards and a touchdown on Sunday against the Lions. This was his second game in a row with a score.

McCoy also had two receptions for 33 yards, and is finding various ways to contribute to the Chiefs offensive success.

Other notables

  • Michael Bennett had just one total tackle and one pass defended for the Patriots on Sunday — his first game since Week 1 without a sack.
  • Linebacker Jordan Hicks continues his double digit-tackle streak, with 12 on Sunday for the Cardinals (48 total through four games this season) and snagged credit for half a sack and had two forced fumbles. Another former Eagle linebacker, Joe Walker, also made one tackle for Arizona in Week 4.
  • Defensive tackle Treyvon Hester finally made his debut for Washington on Sunday, and made one tackle for the NFC East team. Running back Wendell Smallwood had one reception for 14 yards in his second game for his new team.
  • Beau Allen had one tackle for Tampa Bay in their huge win over the Rams.
  • Najee Goode had one tackle for the Jaguars on Sunday. On the other side of the ball De’Vante Bausby had a season-high 8 total tackles for the Broncos and one pass defended.
  • Tight end Trey Burton was active for the Bears in Week 4 and had 2 receptions for 16 yards.
  • The Texans have utilized Deandre Carter mostly on special teams, and he had one punt return for 18 yards on Sunday.
  • A cornerback who could help the Eagles would be Daryl Worley, who had two tackles and three passes defended for the Raiders this week.

Mychal Kendricks gets sacks

Kendricks had his sentencing pushed back to early-November, so in the meantime, he’s continuing to be a big producer for the Seahawks. He made six tackles and had 2 — almost 3 — sacks on Sunday against the Cardinals.

Injuries and Inactives

  • Kenjon Barner has mostly been used on special teams by the Falcons, but he was ruled out for Sunday’s game against the Titans after suffering a concussion in their Week 3 contest against the Colts.
  • As he has been the past three weeks, Brett Toth was once again inactive for the Cardinals on Sunday.
  • Linebacker D.J. Alexander is out for the second week in a row for Jacksonville, as he continues to rehab a hamstring injury suffered in Week 2.
  • Wide receiver Golden Tate is back in New York since Week 4’s game was the last of his suspension. He will rejoin the Giants offense for next Sunday’s game against the Vikings.
