Eagles' Timmy Jernigan: Facing 4-to-6-month recovery timetable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jernigan is expected to be sidelined for 4-to-6 months after undergoing surgery to address a herniated disc in his lower back last week, Adam Schefter and Field Yates of ESPN reports.

The timeline suggests Jernigan will likely be on the sideline for most of training camp and is in serious danger of missing the start of the season, a less-than-ideal development for the 25-year-old as he begins the first year of a four-year, $48 million contract. According to Yates, Jernigan agreed to restructure his contract after it was determined he would need back surgery, with the final three years of his deal no longer containing any guaranteed money. Perhaps in recognition of Jernigan's back concern and in anticipation of a potential absence, the Eagles signed veteran run stuffer Haloti Ngata (biceps) in March to fortify their defensive-line depth.

Eagles' Timmy Jernigan: Undergoes surgery for herniated disc
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jernigan recently underwent surgery for a herniated disc and is expected to miss spring workouts, NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

After three years in Baltimore, Jernigan spent last season in Philadelphia, finishing the 2018 campaign with 33 total tackles, 9.0 TFL, and 2.5 sacks. However, he's since been dealing with a herniated disc, which resulted in a recent surgery. While it will keep Jernigan out for spring workouts, there doesn't appear to be a huge concern over his availability for training camp, so look for him to make a full recovery by that point. Until he's back in the fold, recent acquisition Haloti Ngata should help fill in next to Fletcher Cox.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jernigan (illness) was a full participant in Friday's practice and doesn't appear on the injury report ahead of Super Bowl LII, Tom Pelissero of reports.

Jernigan, who was held out of practice both Wednesday and Thursday due to an unspecified illness, has been cleared to return to the field and should be ready to assume his typical starting role along the interior of the Eagles' defensive line.

Eagles' Timmy Jernigan: Will likely be ready for Super Bowl
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

According to head coach Doug Pederson, Jernigan (illness) should be ready for the Super Bowl, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports. "Because of the position and he's one of our veteran guys, I do feel comfortable that he'll be ready," Pederson told reporters Thursday.

Jernigan has been feeling under the weather as of late but it seems unlikely that the illness will force him to sit out of Sunday's Super Bowl. Look for more updates on his status to come as kickoff approaches. Jernigan has played a pivotal role on the Eagles' defensive line in his first season with Philadelphia, averaging slightly below 33 defensive snaps per game during the regular season.

Eagles' Timmy Jernigan: Not suiting up Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jernigan (coach's decision) won't play in Sunday's game against the Cowboys, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

With little at stake for the Eagles in the regular-season finale, Jernigan will be one of six regulars on defense who will be in street clothes. Jernigan's absence should open up more snaps at defensive tackle for Destiny Vaeao, Beau Allen and Elijah Qualls.
