Eagles defensive end Derek Barnett is expected to miss multiple weeks with an ankle sprain but has a realistic shot at being ready for Week 1 against Washington, according to reports. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact:

Barnett is no stranger to injuries, and he has missed time previously with an ankle issue. He has flashed his talent at times in Philadelphia but has missed more than a dozen games over his three years with the Eagles. The team has already picked up the fifth-year option on his rookie contract, but he will have to produce and stay healthy this season if he wants to sign a big contract extension at some point.
