Jernigan was traded to the Eagles from the Ravens along with a third-round pick in exchange for Philadelphia's third-round pick, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. The Eagles will bring in Jernigan to replace Bennie Logan, who signed with the Chiefs almost a month ago. Only 24, Jernigan is entering the final season of his rookie contract after recording 13 sacks over the past three seasons. Last year he recorded 31 tackles, five sacks, three pass deflections and an interception through 16 games. He'll join a veteran defensive line in Philadelphia anchored by the likes of Fletcher Cox, Brandon Graham and Chris Long.
The Ravens may consider trading Jernigan, who is preparing for the final season of his rookie contract, ESPN.com reports. The perennially cap-strapped Ravens have invested a lot in other parts of their defense, most recently giving out huge contracts to NT Brandon Williams and S Tony Jefferson. The 48th overall selection in the 2014 draft, Jernigan may have priced himself out of the team's range with his solid play the past two years. He's recorded either four or five sacks in each of his three seasons while also providing a strong presence against the run the past two campaigns.
Jernigan (shoulder) is active for Sunday's Week 12 matchup with the Bengals, ESPN.com's Jamison Hensley reports. For the second straight week, Jernigan was listed as questionable heading into gameday, but he'll once again be available along the defensive line. Jernigan had a season-low one tackle in last Sunday's loss to the Cowboys, and given his standing as a 3-4 defensive end, it will be difficult for him to post eye-popping statistics most weeks.
Jernigan (shoulder) is questionable to play Sunday against the Cowboys. Jernigan missed practice Thursday and Friday, but wasn't previously listed on the injury report. Thus, it appears the former second-rounder was injured sometime Wednesday. If he doesn't play, Brent Urban projects to slot into the starting lineup.
Jernigan (knee) is listed as active for Sunday's tilt against the Raiders. Jernigan was able to be a full participant in practice throughout the latter portion of the week, and he'll look to make it four games in a row with a sack on Sunday.
