Eagles' Jalen Mills: Primed for hybrid role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Eagles likely will use Mills in a hybrid role similar to the one Malcolm Jenkins handled in past seasons, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

Zangaro points to a Week 11 game against New England as evidence Mills can be more than just an outside cover corner. His stellar performance in that contest may have contributed to the Eagles' decision to let Jenkins leave for New Orleans in free agency, with Mills representing a cheaper alternative for the hybrid safety/slot role. That's not to say there won't be any drop off, but Mills has an opportunity to approach Jenkins' IDP production from six seasons in Philadelphia -- averages of 85.8 tackles, 9.7 pass breakups, 2.0 forced fumbles, 1.8 interceptions and 1.0 fumble recovery per year. Of course, Jenkins started all 16 games in each of those seasons, while Mills missed 15 contests over the past two years alone.

Eagles' Jalen Mills: Back with Eagles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mills and the Eagles agreed to terms on a one-year contract Tuesday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

The 25-year-old will return to the Eagles after injuries limited him to just nine games in 2019 and a career-low 41 tackles (29 solo), along with an interception and seven pass breakups. Mills has been inconsistent in coverage during his tenure in Philly, so as Mike Kaye of NJ.com suggests, a move to safety could be in the cards for the 2016 seventh-round pick -- giving the Eagles a potential in-house replacement for free agent Malcolm Jenkins.

Eagles' Jalen Mills: Set to become free agent
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mills recorded 41 tackles (29 solo), an interception and seven pass breakups in nine games during the 2019 season.

All of the above numbers represent career-lows for Mills except for the interceptions and games-played totals, each of which is just one fewer. The 25-year-old missed the first six weeks of the season recovering from a foot sprain and also dealt with elbow and ankle injuries during the season. He heads into the offseason due to become an unrestricted free agent.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eagles' Jalen Mills: No-go for pivotal clash
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mills (ankle) is officially inactive for Sunday's game against the Giants.

Mills suffered the injury in last week's win over the Cowboys. As evidenced by this news, he will miss a must-win Week 17. With the 25-year-old sidelined for the game, look for Avonte Maddox and Sidney Jones to see an increase in snaps.

Eagles' Jalen Mills: Questionable Week 17
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mills (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Giants.

Mills sustained the injury during last Sunday's win over the Cowboys and worked as a limited practice participant all week. The 25-year-old briefly left the game last week but played through the injury, and there's a good chance he does so again Week 17.

Eagles' Jalen Mills: Battling ankle injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mills is considered day-to-day after sustaining an ankle injury in Sunday's win over the Cowboys, Daniel Gallen of The Harrisburg Patriot-News reports.

Mills missed a few drives but was able to return to the game. However, he's still hurting, and his practice status could be limited this week. Considering the 25-year-old was able to return, he should be ready for Sunday's potentially playoff-clinching matchup against the Giants.

Mills (elbow) does not carry an injury designation for Sunday's game against Washington.

Mills picked up an elbow injury during Monday's win over the Giants, but he already appears back to full health. The 25-year-old cornerback stands to draw his usual start in Washington on Sunday.

Eagles' Jalen Mills: Estimated as limited participant
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mills (elbow) was estimated as a limited participant on Wednesday's practice report.

Mills was labeled day-to-day after suffering the elbow injury during Monday's win over the Giants, but it's still good to see he was expected to work as a limited participant despite the short turnaround. The 25-year-old should be able to avoid an injury designation for Week 15 if he can practice fully Thursday or Friday.

Eagles' Jalen Mills: Not dealing with serious injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mills is considered day-to-day after suffering an elbow injury during Monday's 23-17 win over the Giants.

Mills returned and finished the contest, and the team believes he should be able to play through the injury with the help of a brace. If the fourth-year corner suffers a setback, however, Rasul Douglas is slated to start in his place.

Eagles' Jalen Mills: Returns to Monday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mills (elbow) has returned to Monday's contest against the Giants, Zach Berman of The Athletic reports.

Mills exited the game briefly, including a trip to the locker room, but he has retaken the field in the fourth quarter. Rasul Douglas will likely return to a depth role with Mills back in action.

Eagles' Jalen Mills: Questionable to return Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mills is questionable to return to Monday's game against the Giants with an elbow injury.

Eagles' Jalen Mills: Grabs INT in season debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mills had eight tackles (four solo) and an interception in Sunday's loss to the Cowboys.

Mills spent the first six games of the season on the PUP list with a foot injury, and he wasted little time in recording his first interception of the year. The 25-year-old played over 90 percent of the defensive snaps Sunday and should continue to work in a starting role for the Eagles at cornerback.

Eagles' Jalen Mills: Activated from PUP-R
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Eagles activated Mills (foot) from the physically unable to perform list on Saturday.

No surprise here, as Mills was considered on track to make his season debut Sunday against the Cowboys. A lingering foot injury has kept him sidelined until now, but his return figures to be a big boost for an underperforming Eagles' secondary.

Eagles' Jalen Mills: On track to start versus Dallas
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mills (foot) is expected to suit up against the Cowboys on Sunday, Tim McManus of ESPN.com reports.

Mills will need to be activated from the PUP list in order to suit up Week 7, so that move is expected to occur Friday. After nursing a lingering foot injury for nearly a year, the 25-year-old now appears set to return to the starting lineup. His presence will be a notable asset for Philadelphia's porous secondary.

Eagles' Jalen Mills: Returning to practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Eagles' Jalen Mills: May play Week 7
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mills (foot) is expected to practice this week and could play Sunday against the Cowboys, Zack Rosenblatt of NJ.com reports.

Mills currently resides on the PUP list, and he hasn't logged on-field activity since the middle of the 2018 season. The 25-year-old now appears to be nearing a return. His presence would be a notable boost for Philadelphia's struggling secondary.

Eagles' Jalen Mills: Could practice next week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mills (foot) is eligible to return to practice Week 7, Reuben Frank of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

Mills is targeting a return to the field Week 7 against the Cowboys, though he'll first need to receive full medical clearance and perform well in practice. The 25-year-old's presence would be a notable boost to Philadelphia's secondary, which has battled numerous injuries through the early portion of the season.

Eagles' Jalen Mills: Hits reserve/PUP list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Eagles placed Mills (foot) on the reserve/PUP list to begin the season, per the league's official transactions report.

Mills won't be eligible to practice or play for the first six weeks of the regular season. The 25-year-old is working to get healthy from a foot injury suffered against the Jaguars last October, and a timetable for his recovery still remains undisclosed.

Eagles' Jalen Mills: Unlikely for season opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mills (foot) is unlikely to be ready for the season opener against Washington, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Mills originally suffered the injury in October against Jacksonville in London. The team hasn't given much information about the 25-year-old's injury, but we do know that he hasn't been able to practice outside of some recent rehab work this summer. As long as Mills is sidelined, Orlando Scandrick and Jeremiah McKinnon seem to be candidates to see extra reps.
