EAGLES SECONDARY BETTER SUCK IT UP, NOT SUCK AGAINST COWBOYS!

By Michael Bennett

Cornerback Darius Slay is expected to return after missing one game because of a concussion, but the Eagles will still be without starting safety Rodney McLeod (ACL tear) and starting cornerback Avonte Maddox (knee).

Arizona’s Kyler Murray took advantage of a secondary missing three starters and threw for a career-best 406 yards.

Safety Jalen Mills was the only available starter against the Cardinals, so the Eagles relied on Michael Jacquet, Kevon Seymour, K’von Wallace and Marcus Epps.

Defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz praised the group’s effort.

“If you guys were able to come to our practices, you would see a significant portion of our team staying afterward,” Schwartz said. “They’re hungry for meetings. They can’t be in meetings in person. It’s really changed. Guys are always hardworking. It’s really just changed the avenues that they’re able to get some extra seasoning and get some extra attention.”
