Grugier-Hill is expected to draw the start at outside linebacker following the release of Zach Brown, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports reports.
Grugier-Hill played 35 snaps on defense (49 percent) versus the Vikings in Week 6, and all signs point to his role increasing going forward. With Nigel Bradham (ankle) nursing an injury, it's possible that T.J. Edwards could also be called upon to slot into the starting lineup Sunday against Dallas.
Grugier-Hill (knee) was listed as a full participant in Monday's practice estimate.
Grugier-Hill missed the first three games of the season, but the Eagles look ready to work him at full speed going forward. The 25-year-old made 45 tackles and a sack for the Eagles last year, and they'll need him to be strong against the run again for Thursday's game versus the Packers, which feature two capable backs in Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams.
Grugier-Hill (knee) is officially listed as inactive for Sunday's game against the Lions, Chris McPherson of the Eagles' official site reports.

Grugier-Hill (knee) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Lions.
It was reported earlier in the week that Grugier-Hill would not play due to the lingering knee injury, but it appears the Eagles are not going to completely rule him out on their final practice report of the week. However, it still seems very unlikely Grugier-Hill takes the field this weekend, but there does appear to be a good chance of him returning for Thursday night's Week 4 matchup with the Packers.

Grugier-Hill may challenge Zach Brown for playing time in nickel packages, Jimmy Kempski of PhillyVoice.com reports.
Grugier-Hill, Brown and Nigel Bradham are expected to handle starting jobs, but only the latter is a lock to stay on the field for all three downs. Brown is coming in to replace Jordan Hicks, who signed with Arizona this offseason after averaging 58.8 defensive snaps and 7.6 tackles in 12 games for Philadelphia in 2018. Brown is viewed as a downgrade from Hicks in pass coverage, which gives Grugier-Hill a shot at an every-down job -- the type that could lead to IDP value.
Grugier-Hill produced 45 tackles, one sack, two pass breakups (including one interception) and one forced fumble over 16 games in 2018.
Grugier-Hill was only used as anything more than a rotational player when Jordan Hicks missed time with a calf injury from Weeks 12 through 15, a span in which the former generated over half of his total tackles as well as his only sack and forced fumble. Had Hicks stayed healthy, Grugier-Hill's numbers likely wouldn't look as nice. The 2016 sixth-rounder nonetheless remains under contract with the Eagles for another year and should be able to carve out some sort of role ahead of the 2019 campaign.
Grugier-Hill recorded 10 tackles (four solo) during Sunday's 29-23 loss to the Cowboys.
Grugier-Hill played 65 percent of the Eagles' defensive snaps, and made the most of his rotational workload. The third-year pro eclipsed five tackles for only the second time all season, making him difficult to trust in IDP formats going forward. Grugier-Hill will look to record another impressive outing against the Rams in Week 15.
Grugier-Hill (thumb) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice.

Grugier-Hill is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Colts with a groin injury, Zack Rosenblatt of NJ.com reports.

Grugier-Hill played 45 snaps or 63 percent of the total in Thursday's preseason loss to Cleveland.
Grugier-Hill got the start and all the meaningful snaps as the Eagles' weakside linebacker. The former special-teams player has made plays and been around the ball constantly in camp, racking up 13 tackles in three preseason games so far. Even if he doesn't lock down the starting WILL role, the Eastern Illinois product looks like he'll be part of the mix.
Grugier-Hill had 22 tackles (19 solo) and one forced fumble in 16 games for the Eagles in 2017.
Grugier-Hill has played only 85 defensive snaps for the Eagles this season, serving primarily as a special teams player. The 23-year-old should serve a similar role with Philadephia in 2018, assuming he again makes the team's 53-man roster.
Grugier-Hill (illness) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Ravens, Adam Caplan of ESPN.com reports.
