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, 3 pass deflections, 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 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 years.

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 didn't practice all week while dealing with the shoulder injury, but the Ravens never seemed to seriously fear that he'd be unavailable Sunday. The team will count on him to seal the edge and prevent Cowboys rookie running back Ezekiel Elliott from breaking big runs.

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.
