McLeod (hamstring) is inactive for Sunday's Week 3 matchup with the Giants, Tim McManus of ESPN.com reports. McLeod joins fellow safeties Corey Graham (hamstring) and Jaylen Watkins (hamstring) on the inactive list this week, likely meaning Chris Maragos or Trae Elston, both third string safeties, will be forced into a starting role.
McLeod (hamstring) is considered a "long shot" to play Sunday against the Giants, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. The Eagles will check back in on McLeod's condition closer to game time before ruling him in or out for the Week 3 contest, but the safety's lack of practice time this week doesn't bode well for his chances of suiting up this week. He was able to practice on a limited basis Friday, but was on the sideline for the entirety of the Eagles' sessions Wednesday and Thursday. With depth safeties Corey Graham (hamstring) and Jaylen Watkins (hamstring) already ruled out, special teamers Chris Maragos and Trae Elston could be thrust into prominent roles on defense if McLeod is in fact sidelined.
McLeod (hamstring) returned to a limited practice Friday and said afterward that he'll be a game-time decision for Sunday's matchup with the Giants, Martin Frank of The Delaware News Journal reports. Early reports suggested McLeod wasn't expected to play, but a Friday return to practice at least gives him some chance. Coming off an 83-tackle, three-interception 2016 campaign, McLeod has been quiet from an IDP perspective this season, but his presence nonetheless looms large for a banged-up Philadelphia secondary.
McLeod (hamstring) didn't practice Wednesday and isn't expected to play Sunday against the Giants, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports. McLeod is one of three safeties in Philly with a hurt hamstring, and if they all can't play, Chris Maragos, a veteran special teams man, may have to fill in. This leaves a battered Eagles secondary with Giants receiver Odell Beckham (ankle) coming to town near full health.
McLeod (hamstring) is out for the remainder of Sunday's game against the Chiefs, Zach Berman of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Fellow safety Jaylen Watkins (hamstring) also is out for the remainder of the game, leaving the Eagles secondary thin. Corey Graham and Chris Maragos will continue to fill in for the time being, but it'd be a good idea to monitor McLeod's recovery ahead of Week 3's matchup with the Giants.
