  • Eagles' Marcus Epps: Leading tackler in season opener

    Epps had 10 tackles (eight solo), including one tackle for loss, in Sunday's 38-35 win over Detroit.

    Neither defense played particularly well, but Epps helped the Eagles do just enough on that side of the ball to pull out a Week 1 road victory. The safety led the team in tackles in the season opener.

  • Eagles' Marcus Epps: Healthy again

    Epps (back) was not listed on the Eagles' injury report Wednesday, Sage Hurley of the team's official site reports.

    Epps should be ready to go after missing time this preseason with an unspecified back issue. The fourth-year veteran, who recorded 62 tackles and five passes defended over 16 games with Philadelphia last season, should step back in as the team's starting strong safety in Week 1 against the Lions on Sunday.

  • Eagles' Marcus Epps: Battle back issue

    Epps missed practice Tuesday due to a back injury, Zach Berman of The Athletic reports.

    The nature and severity of Epps' injury are not clear. If the issue remains a problem heading into the regular season, K'Von Wallace or Jaquiski Tartt could push for starting safety roles.

  • Eagles' Marcus Epps: Could start in 2022

    Epps has a good chance to start alongside Anthony Harris at safety this season, Zach Berman of The Athletic reports.

    After losing Rodney McLeod to the Colts this offseason, Philadelphia will need someone to step up as its second starting safety, and it sounds like Epps currently is the favorite to do so. He provided reason to believe he could succeed as a starter last season, racking up 20 tackles over two games when he took over for the injured Harris in Weeks 7 and 8.

  • Eagles' Marcus Epps: Returns from COVID list

    Epps was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Monday.

    Epps spent a week in COVID protocols and missed the Eagles' Week 18 loss to the Cowboys. Now healthy, Epps should return Sunday against the Buccaneers in a reserve role at safety.

  • Eagles' Marcus Epps: Shifts to COVID list

    Epps was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Monday after testing positive for the virus, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

    Epps played only 17 defensive snaps during Sunday's win over Washington and is now on the virus list. Starting safety Rodney McLeod also tested positive for COVID, so Epps could step into the starting role if he can clear the protocols before Saturday's matchup with Dallas.

  • Eagles' Marcus Epps: Nine tackles in blowout win

    Epps had nine tackles (seven solo) and one pass defensed during Sunday's 44-6 win over the Lions.

    Epps was the only Eagles defender to play all 62 defensive snaps, and he finished second on the team in tackles. He has 20 total tackles over the past two games in the absence of Anthony Harris (hand).

  • Eagles' Marcus Epps: Career high in tackles

    Epps had 11 tackles (five solo) in a 33-22 loss to the Raiders on Sunday.

    Epps stepped into a full-time role playing 100 percent of the snaps with Anthony Harris (hands/groin) unable to play. The third-year pro took advantage of the opportunity, as his 11 tackles marked a career high. The Eagles will travel to Detroit for Week 8, and if Harris is able to return, look for Epps to be relegated to a part-time role.

  • Eagles' Marcus Epps: Will start Week 7

    Epps will draw the start in place of Anthony Harris (hands/groin) during Sunday's contest against the Raiders, Martin Frank of The Delaware News Journal reports.

    Harris was ruled out for Sunday's game after suffering a groin injury that kept him out of Friday's practice. Epps has appeared in every contest for the Eagles this season, but he has mostly operated as the third safety during obvious passing situations. In Week 3, the 25-year-old safety replaced K'Von Wallace (shoulder) and played 61 defensive snaps and recorded four tackles. He will likely see a similar workload during his first start of the season Sunday.

  • Eagles' Marcus Epps: Racks up eight stops

    Epps had eight tackles (five solo) during Sunday's 21-18 win over the Panthers.

    Epss was busy as a run stopper despite playing just 29 percent of defensive snaps. As he's been mostly limited to a depth role, Epps shouldn't be considered as a viable IDP option except in exceptionally deep formats.
