DT - PHI
The Eagles have opened up the 21-day practice window for Jordan Davis to return from injured reserve.
Davis was placed on IR with a high-ankle sprain and has missed about a month. He will return to a revamped defensive line and will help bolster the Eagles' run defense. With his return, fantasy managers should be able to trust the Eagles' defense down the home stretch of the fantasy season.
Jordan Davis (ankle) has been ruled out for Thursday's game against Houston.
Davis has been an excellent addition to the Eagles' defense. The 22-year-old will miss Thursday's game against the Texans but will have extra time to recover before the Eagles' next game. The Eagles' D/ST is still an excellent start this week against a weak Houston offense.
Jordan Davis and the Eagles have agreed to terms on a contract, according to Adam Schefter.
It's a four-year deal worth $17 million, with a fifth-year team option. The deal is fully guaranteed for the defensive tackle from Georgia, who also gets a $9.55 million signing bonus. Davis will join Fletcher Cox on the interior of the Eagles' defensive line, on what should be a stout tandem.
