Fantasy Impact:

The Eagles didn't elaborate on what specifically happened, but head coach Nick Sirianni did say earlier this week that Sweat was dealing with an abdominal issue. In a statement on Sunday morning, the team said, "He improved every day but it was determined by the doctors today that he was not quite ready. The fact that Josh came so close to playing is a credit to his toughness and our medical staff.” We send our best wishes to Josh Sweat following this scary situation.
