Two sacks in win

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-10-24

Sweat logged two tackles (two solo), which were both sacks, in Philadelphia's 31-17 win against the Dolphins on Sunday.

Sweat recorded two of the Eagles' four sacks of Tua Tagovailoa on Sunday, as he helped slow down the NFL's highest scoring offense. The 2018 fourth-round pick is on pace to set a new career high for sacks and currently has 5.5 through seven games.

Gets to the quarterback Sunday

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-10-17

Sweat recorded two tackles (two solo) including a sack in Sunday's 20-14 loss at the Jets.

Sweat registered a sack for the third time in Philadelphia's last five games Sunday after beating left tackle Mekhi Becton with a sweet swim move. He should continue to play a major role on the edge for the Eagles in Week 7 versus the Dolphins.

Cleared for Monday

Sweat (toe) was a full participant in Saturday's practice and will play in Monday's matchup against the Buccaneers.

Sweat popped up on Thursday's injury report after logging in a limited session. He's continued to be a formidable force for the Eagles' defensive front and has registered three tackles (one solo), 1.5 sacks, six QB hits and a forced fumble through two games this year.

Limited on Thursday

Sweat (toe) was limited in Thursday's practice.

It's a new injury for the 26-year-old, but the limited session puts him on the right track for Monday night's Week 3 date with the Bucs. Sweat has six QB hits, 1.5 sacks and a forced fumble through two games to begin the year.

Not listed on injury report

Sweat isn't listed on the Eagles' injury report Tuesday.

Sweat was sidelined for the regular-season finale due to a neck injury he suffered in Week 17, but the Eagles' wild-card bye proved beneficial. The veteran defensive end's omission from the injury report suggests he's put the issue behind him and should be full go for Saturday's divisional-round matchup against the Giants. Sweat posted a career-high 11 sacks this season and is a key piece of Philadelphia's vaunted defensive front.

Ruled out for Week 18

Sweat (neck) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Giants.

Sweat was deemed day-to-day after being released from the hospital Sunday, but he'll ultimately be sidelined for at least one contest due to a neck injury he suffered in Week 17. The severity of the issue remains unclear, but the defensive end said on Twitter earlier this week that he plans to return prior to the end of the season.

Considered day-to-day

Sweat (neck) is being evaluated on a day-to-day basis after being released from the hospital Sunday, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Coach Nick Sirianni didn't offer much information regarding Sweat's recovery Monday, but the defensive lineman recently said on Twitter that he plans to return prior to the end of the season. His status for Sunday's game against the Giants will likely come into focus based on how much he's able to practice this week.

Should leave hospital Sunday

Sweat (neck) is expected to be discharged from the hospital Sunday night, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

Sweat's admittance into the hospital was believed to be precautionary, after he suffered a neck injury in Sunday's loss to the Saints. He was able to move his extremities after the hit, but he was still stretchered off the field. His ability to leave the hospital will certainly be great news for Sweat and the Eagles.

Taken to hospital

Sweat was transported to a local hospital after suffering a neck injury in Sunday's game against the Saints.

Sweat does have movement in all of his extremities, so his trip to the hospital is likely precautionary. The injury occurred on an attempted tackle of Adam Prentice, which saw Sweat lunge head first into Prentice's side. Brandon Graham is now the only healthy pass rusher active for the Eagles on Sunday.
