    Eagles' Walter Thurmond: Active Sunday

    Thurmond (elbow/shoulder) is active for Sunday's game against the Bills. Thurmond practiced fully this week and looks like he'll check in at reasonable health in what represents a critical matchup for both teams' playoff hopes. With the Bills expected to utilize a run-heavy approach in Sunday's game, Thurmond could end up spending more time in the box, which should still lend itself to plenty of tackle opportunities. The safety has recorded 19 combined stops over his last two games.

    Eagles' Walter Thurmond: Active Week 13

    Thurmond (hamstring) is active Sunday against the Patriots. After missing Wednesday's practice, Thurmond put in full practices Thursday and Friday and he'll be in the lineup at safety in a tough road test against the Patriots. Despite the matchup, he's been hot lately, as he's forced fumbles in two of his last three games.

    Eagles' Walter Thurmond: Set to face Patriots

    Thurmond (hamstring) is listed as probable for Sunday's game in New England. Thurmond missed Wednesday's practice but then logged full sessions both Thursday and Friday. He's had some issues in coverage the past few weeks, but with 20 tackles over the last three games, Thurmond still makes for a solid IDP choice.

    Eagles' Walter Thurmond: Practices fully Thursday

    Thurmond (hamstring) practiced fully Thursday, Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Following an upgrade from DNP to full in the first two practices of the week, Thurmond's workload was clearly being monitored. In addition three early-season interceptions, Thurmond had been a reliable IDP threat in his first campaign with the Eagles, supplying 56 tackles (41 solo), two sacks, and two forced fumbles in 11 games.

    Eagles' Walter Thurmond: Does not practice Wednesday

    Thurmond (hamstring/calf) did not practice Wednesday. While Byron Maxwell has struggled since leaving the comfy confines of the Legion of Boom, Thurmond has excelled in his new home with the Eagles, filling in nicely at safety for the struggling defense. The 28-year-old converted cornerback was able to play in last Thursday's brutal Thanksgiving loss to the Lions despite an injury to his hamstring, so it's possible Thurmond could suit up for a prime-time matchup against the Patriots this Sunday, but that decision likely won't arrive until closer to the weekend.

    Walter Thurmond thriving at safety for Eagles

    Eagles safety Walter Thurmond grabbed a late-game interception and added four tackles in Sunday's 24-17 win over the Jets. In three games, Thurmond has set a single-season career-high in interceptions with two. He picked up a couple in the preseason as well and has routinely been in good position in the secondary during his brief time with the Eagles. For someone playing his first season ever at safety, Thurmond has been the Eagles' anchor next to safety Malcolm Jenkins.

    Eagles' Walter Thurmond moves to safety

    The Eagles have made a lot of moves to improve their defense this offseason, one of which was to bring Walter Thurmond aboard. Most thought he would play cornerback, but Chip Kelly announced Thursday that Thurmond has moved to safety, per Thurmond said the coaching staff approached him about the idea some time ago, giving him the option to compete at either position. "It was a couple weeks ago, just after the draft, they asked me how I would feel about moving to safety,'' Thurmond said. "They said I could stay and compete at corner, or I could move to safety and compete there. After drafting three corners, even though some of them might be safeties, they thought it would be better for me at safety. I'm good with it. I just want to play." The move is intriguing given that Thurmond has never played a game at the safety position, but he isn't concerned too much about that. "I've played it in practice, but never in a game,'' Thurmond said. "In this defense, though, it's not much different than playing in the nickel.''

    DeMeco Ryans likes improved Eagles' defense

    Eagles linebacker DeMeco Ryans likes the changes that the team has made to its defense in the offseason. "We got better on the outside, which we struggled at last year," Ryans said, per ESPN. "We had a lot of struggles there on the outside at the corner position, so I feel we've upgraded there with (Byron) Maxwell , a guy that you've seen make a lot of plays for the Seahawks. A guy like Kiko (Alonso), who his rookie year was a really outstanding player, up for defensive rookie of the year, a playmaker all over the field, and another guy in (Walter) Thurmond , who is expected to definitely push guys to be the starting corner on the other side. So I feel like we upgraded at a lot of positions, and I feel like it's really going to improve our defense."
