According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, both defensive tackle Javon Hargrave and defensive end Derek Barnett “have a realistic shot at being ready” for the Sept. 13 regular season opener at Washington.
The Eagles said yesterday Hargrave would miss “multiple weeks” with a pectoral strain (though they’re using hockey phrases such as “upper body injury”). They also referred to Barnett as “week-to-week” with his ankle sprain (“lower body injury”).
While they’d obviously prefer everyone be well during camp, having such a significant portion of their line available for the start of the regular season would obviously be a benefit.
