Sweat (illness) is inactive for Sunday' playoff game against the Buccaneers. Per Adam Schefter of ESPN, Sweat underwent an emergency procedure Tuesday to address a serious medical matter. Though the report notes that Sweat improved every day to the point that he came close to playing Sunday, he wasn't quite ready to suit up. In the pass rusher's absence, Ryan Kerrigan, Milton Williams and Tarron Jackson are candidates to see added snaps.
Sweat (illness) is questionable for Sunday's contest against the Buccaneers, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports. Sweat was inactive for the Eagles' regular-season finale with an illness, and it appears he hasn't shaken the aliment yet. Zangaro reports that the fourth-year defensive end continues to have abdominal pain due to the illness, but he was able to return to team facilities Friday, which is a step in the right direction. If he's unable to suit up for the wild-card matchup against Tampa Bay, Ryan Kerrigan would likely be the next man up.
Sweat (coach's decision) is inactive Saturday against the Cowboys. Sweat will get the night off, since the Eagles have a playoff spot already locked up. Ryan Kerrigan will likely see an increase in opportunity against the Cowboys.
Sweat logged three tackles (one solo) and 1.5 sacks in Sunday's 33-18 win over the Jets. Sweat hasn't been very productive in the tackles column recently, but he reached the quarterback for the first time since Week 8 during Sunday's victory. Across the last five games, he's totaled just seven tackles (three solo) and 1.5 sacks.
Sweat (concussion) is listed as questionable but is expected to clear concussion protocols and play in Week 10 against the Broncos, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Sweat suffered a concussion during the Eagles' Week 9 loss to the Chargers. The defensive end recorded a limited practice Thursday and is expected to clear concussion protocols Saturday. Expect Ryan Kerrigan to see an increased role Sunday if Sweat suffers any setback and is unable to suit up.
