Jernigan (foot) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Cowboys.
Jernigan will miss his fifth consecutive game as he continues to work back from the fractured foot he sustained in Week 2. Hassan Ridgeway should continue seeing increased work as a reserve defensive tackle in his place.
Jernigan (foot) is ruled out for Sunday's game against the Vikings, Mike Kaye of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.
Jernigan continues to progress in his recovery from a foot injury. He may have a shot to suit up Week 7 against the Cowboys, depending on the extent of his participation in practice leading up to the contest. Until Jernigan retakes the field, look for Hassan Ridgeway to continue seeing increased snaps.
Jernigan (foot) will remain sidelined for Sunday's game against the Jets.
Jernigan was originally expected to miss roughly a month after injuring his foot on Sept. 15. Thus, he is currently in the middle of that timetable. His next chance to suit up will be in Week 6 versus the Vikings. In the meantime, Hassan Ridgeway figures to again be in line for increased snaps.
Jernigan (foot) is ruled out for Thursday's game against the Packers.
Jernigan is expected to miss about a month as he works to recover from a broken foot. Hassan Ridgeway should see increased snaps along the interior of Philadelphia's defensive line as long as Jernigan is unable to go.
Jernigan has a broken foot and could be out for a month, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
While the recovery time is not set in stone, a timeline of one month would aim his return at Week 6's game versus the Vikings. The Eagles' defensive line is banged up since Malik Jackson (foot) is also on injured reserve. Expect Fletcher Cox and Akeem Spence to start in Week 3's contest versus the Lions.
Jernigan left Sunday's game in Atlanta due to a foot injury, Derrick Gunn of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.
Gunn speculates that Jernigan was going in for X-Rays, so his return to this one should be viewed as questionable at best.
Jernigan is the most likely option to take over for Malik Jackson (foot) at defensive tackle, Zack Rosentblatt of NJ.com reports.
It was Jernigan who took over for Jackson after the latter left the game. The 26-year-old registered the team's lone sack towards the end of the first half, taking Case Keenum down for a 10-yard loss. The former Seminole played 25 snaps in all and will likely see more Week 2 at Atlanta.
Jernigan agreed Thursday to re-join the Eagles on a one-year contract, Eliot Shorr-Parks of Sports Radio 94 WIP Philadelphia reports,
The Eagles let Jernigan hit free agency at the start of the offseason, unwilling to pay the defensive tackle an $11 million base salary in 2019 following a season in which he was limited to three games by a back injury. However, it seems the two sides were able to reach agreement on a more team-friendly deal and now Jernigan is back in the fold for another year before getting another chance to try his hand in free agency again next season. While it seems likely that Malik Jackson and Fletcher Cox (foot) get most of the reps at defensive tackle in 2019, Jernigan nonetheless has the potential to serve as a valuable piece of an Eagles defensive tackle rotation that otherwise includes promising third-year player Treyvon Hester.
The Eagles will not pick up up Jernigan's option for 2019, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
With Philadelphia unwilling to pay Jernigan's $11 million base salary for 2019, the 26-year-old is set to become a free agent March 13. Limited by a herniated disk in his back in 2018, he appeared in only five games (including two playoff contests) with the Eagles. Across three regular-season games, Jernigan logged just two tackles. Despite coming off a down year, he'll hit free agency as one of the more well-known defensive tackles on the market and should have no difficulty landing a starting role elsewhere in the league.
The Eagles aren't likely to retain Jernigan at his $11 million salary for 2019, Sheil Kapadia of The Athletic reports.
Limited by a herniated disc in his back, Jernigan made just five appearances (including two during the playoffs) in the first season of his four-year, $48 million extension. While the deal appears cumbersome at first glance, the Eagles will only take $6 million in dead money on their books if they trade or release Jernigan before March 13, per overthecap.com. It's unclear if the 26-year-old would have any interest in discussing a pay cut, considering he'd be one of the top defensive tackles on the market if he reached free agency. While not quite dominant as an interior pass rusher, Jernigan did average 30.5 tackles, 10.8 quarterback hits and 3.9 sacks over 14.5 games through his first four NFL seasons.
Jernigan tallied two tackles over three games in 2018.
Surgery to correct a herniated disc in his back delayed Jernigan's 2018 debut, and he wasn't a huge factor on defense until the playoffs, when Jernigan outproduced his regular-season numbers by 12 defensive snaps, one tackle and one sack in one less game. While the 2014 second-rounder remains under contract with the Eagles through 2021, Jernigan is set to cost $13 million against the cap in 2019, making it likely his days in Philly are over.
Jernigan (back) will play in Sunday's game versus the Texans, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.
Jernigan will suit up for the second game this year and the first time since Week 12. Last time he slotted in, Jernigan logged just 20 defensive snaps and didn't have a tackle. For fantasy owners who kept hope this long, there's plenty of safer IDP options elsewhere.
Jernigan (back) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Texans, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.
Jernigan continues to nurse a lingering back injury. The fifth-year defensive tackle has only suited up for one game this season (Week 12 versus the Giants) and is likely to remain sidelined as per usual on Sunday.
Jernigan (back) is ruled out for Sunday's game versus the Rams, Zach Berman of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Jernigan has only suited up for one game this season -- Week 12 versus the Giants -- and logged just 20 defensive snaps. His absence is the norm for Philadelphia, so expect Haloti Ngata to continue working a large role.
Jernigan (back) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Cowboys, Tim McManus of ESPN.com reports.
Jernigan developed back spasms prior to the Eagles' Week 13 win over the Redskins and will be sidelined for the second straight contest as a result. In anticipation of Jernigan's absence, the Eagles promoted Bruce Hector from their practice squad to offer additional depth at defensive tackle.
Jernigan (back), who is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Cowboys, isn't expected to play, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Coach Doug Pederson expressed optimism earlier this week that Jernigan would be ready to return from a one-game absence, but the defensive tackle was unable to practice in any capacity Wednesday through Friday. The lack of activity will likely prompt the team to err on the side of caution and hold Jernigan out for another contest, paving the way Haloti Ngata to start alongside Fletcher Cox at defensive tackle.
Coach Doug Pederson said Monday that he expects Jernigan (back) to be available Sunday against the Cowboys, Zach Berman of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
The defensive tackle missed Monday's game after suffering back spasms during warmups. Pederson displayed optimism about his status in Week 14, though his availability in practice will shed more light on how he's doing.
Jernigan (back) has been ruled out for the remainder of Monday's game against the Redskins.
Tough news for the Eagles considering Jernigan is no stranger to back issues, as he faced a multiple-month recovery this offseason due to herniated discs. The defensive tackle failed to record a stat before exiting the contest. Look for more updates on his status to come once the Eagles resume practice later this week.
Jernigan is questionable to return to Monday's game against the Redskins with back spasms.
Jernigan has had back issues before, as he faced a multiple-month recovery this offseason after suffering herniated discs. Treyvon Hester is in line for additional snaps at defensive tackle as long as Jernigan is out.
Jernigan (lower back) should get a big role Sunday against the Giants, Les Bowen of the Philadelphia Daily News reports.
Jernigan was activated from the non-football injury list Tuesday after sitting out the first 11 games of the season. The statement concerning Jernigan's role comes from head coach Doug Pederson and supports the notion that Jernigan will retain his starting defensive tackle duties and should also be cleared of an injury designation for Week 12.
