Danny Watkins, who has missed the last three games including Sunday’s 38-23 Eagles loss to the Cowboys, will return Sunday in Washington.
The revolving door that is the Eagles offensive line will have yet another change on Sunday against the Redskins.
Danny Watkins, who missed the last three games with a ‘chronic ankle injury’ as termed by Head Coach Andy Reid, will return to the lineup this week.
The plan is for the Eagles to work in Dennis Kelly at tackle along with Demetress Bell and King Dunlap this week and given Dunlap’s performance last week against the Cowboys, there’s a decent chance that he will start at tackle.
Earlier this week the Birds made a move to bolster depth along the line by signing 31-year old Jake Scott to a one-year deal and released Julian Vadervelde. Scott has started 121 career regular season and nine playoff games with the Colts and Titans. One aspect that makes Scott’s signing intriguing is the fact that he has experience under Eagles offensive line coach Howard Mudd.
Scott said on Wednesday that his goal is to be ready to play on Sunday afternoon despite having been out of the league for a year.
“I’ll be ready,” Scott said. “If they need me, I’m ready to go.”
