Tim Jernigan: No longer with Houston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jernigan will return to the open market after he announced Tuesday that his one-year, $3.75 million deal with the Texans fell through, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Jernigan never officially passed a physical, which is why the deal was never processed. However, he has been cleared to play by Dr. Robert Watkins. The 27-year-old is expected to draw interest from several other NFL teams.

Texans' Tim Jernigan: Inks deal with Texans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jernigan agreed to a one-year, $3.75 million contract with the Texans on Wednesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

The 27-year-old was limited to 10 tackles and two sacks in 10 contests with the Eagles last season. He'll provide the Texans with added depth and another run-stuffing presence along the defensive line.

Eagles' Tim Jernigan: Modest impact in 2019
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jernigan notched 10 tackles (seven solo) and two sacks across 10 regular-season games in 2019. He also notched two solo tackles during the Jan. 5 wild-card loss to Seattle.

The 27-year-old missed six straight games due to a foot injury sustained Week 2, but he played a substantial role once he returned midseason, as the Eagles were missing Malik Jackson (foot) and Hassan Ridgeway (ankle). Jernigan is set to become an unrestricted free agent in March.

Eagles' Tim Jernigan: Active Week 9
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jernigan (foot) is active for Sunday's game against the Bears.

Jernigan was listed as questionable but will suit up as expected Sunday for the first time since Week 2. The 27-year-old should start and see a sizable workload at defensive tackle with Malik Jackson (foot) and Hassan Ridgeway (ankle) on injured reserve.

Eagles' Tim Jernigan: Expected to play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jernigan (foot) is likely to play Sunday against the Bears, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Jernigan is officially considered questionable, but it looks as though he'll be able to take the field for the first time since Week 2. Assuming he suits up, the 27-year-old could be returning to a sizable workload at defensive tackle with Malik Jackson (foot) and Hassan Ridgeway (ankle) on injured reserve.

Eagles' Tim Jernigan: Officially questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jernigan (foot) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Bears.

Jernigan returned to practice this week and logged a trio of limited sessions. He appears to have a shot to retake the field for the first time since Week 2 but could first need to show well during pre-game warmups. If Jernigan is able to go Sunday, he stands to play a key role along Philadelphia's defensive line.

Eagles' Tim Jernigan: Limited to begin week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jernigan (foot) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Zach Berman of The Athletic reports.

Jernigan hadn't practiced since suffering a foot injury Week 2, so Wednesday's limited session is a notable step in the right direction. Depending on what the starting defensive tackle is able to do in the week's final two practices, he could have a shot at suiting up Sunday versus Chicago.

Eagles' Tim Jernigan: Missing sixth straight game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jernigan (foot) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Bills.

Jernigan sustained the foot injury in Week 2 and has yet to see the field after originally being expected to miss about a month. Anthony Rush is expected to receive the start Sunday with Hassan Ridgeway (ankle) on injured reserve, per Mike Kaye of The Newark Star-Ledger.

Eagles' Tim Jernigan: Still unable to practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jernigan (foot) didn't participate in Wednesday's practice.

Jernigan has sat out five straight games, and he's trending toward a sixth with an absence from the first official practice of the week. With Hassan Ridgeway (ankle) on injured reserve, either Anthony Rush or Albert Huggins -- both undrafted rookies -- are expected to start at defensive tackle if Jernigan is ruled out.

Eagles' Tim Jernigan: Missing fifth straight contest
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Eagles' Tim Jernigan: Ruled out again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Eagles' Tim Jernigan: Out Week 5
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Eagles' Tim Jernigan: Won't play Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Eagles' Tim Jernigan: Facing lengthy recovery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Eagles' Tim Jernigan: Suffers injury against Falcons
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Eagles' Tim Jernigan: Likely to inherit starting role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Eagles' Tim Jernigan: Returning to Philadelphia
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Eagles' Tim Jernigan: Headed for free agency
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Eagles' Tim Jernigan: May not stay in Philly
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

January 21, 2019 03:08 PM
Eagles' Tim Jernigan: Limited to three games in 2018
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.
