Eagles right guard Matt Pryor is ill and will miss Sunday’s Ravens game, replaced by veteran guard Jamon Brown, who will make his Eagles debut.
“He’s done a really nice job,” coach Doug Pederson said of Brown. “He’s a smart guy. He’s aggressive coming off the ball. He fits in really well.”

Brown played in 60 career regular-season games (47 starts) in his first five NFL seasons. Thirty-seven of those starts came at the right guard position.
The Eagles will have their fifth different offensive line combination in six games. Lane Johnson’s status remains up in the air due to his surgically repaired ankle. Rookie Jack Driscoll, who started the season opener, is ready to go if Johnson is ruled out.
Pederson added that cornerback Darius Slay cleared the concussion protocol and is on track to play against the Ravens. The Eagles will release the full injury report later this afternoon.
