Barnett, who underwent offseason sports hernia surgery, has been a full participant in OTAs this month, Jimmy Kempski of the Philly Voice reports.
Barnett missed two of the Eagles' last four games of the 2017 season due to the injury that prompted the offseason surgery. However, this procedure will reportedly make Barnett's groin area stronger than it was previously, which certainly bodes well for his ability to stay healthy this upcoming season. With Brandon Graham (ankle) and Michael Bennett locked into the starting lineup, Barnett is expected to serve in a rotational role in 2018.
Barnett (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Cowboys, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
The Eagles are resting a number of key defenders for the regular-season finale with the team having already clinched the NFC's No. 1 seed, including three mainstays along the line in Barnett, Timmy Jernigan and Brandon Graham (ankle). Vinny Curry and Chris Long are thus in line to start at the two end spots, but they too could give way to some of the line's deeper reserves as the regular-season finale unfolds.
Barnett (groin) is listed as active for Monday's game against the Raiders, Tim McManus of ESPN.com reports.
Barnett was considered questionable to play despite practicing in full Saturday. The rookie first-rounder is coming off a career-high 42 snaps last week against the Giants and should again see a heavy dose of playing time Monday now that he's been cleared to suit up.
Barnett (groin) is considered questionable for Monday's game against the Raiders, Zach Berman of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Barnett logged a limited practice Friday after sitting out Thursday. However, he was a full-go Saturday, and appears to be trending in the right direction. Steven Means would likely see increased snaps providing depth at defensive end should Barnett ultimately not be able to go.
Barnett made three solo tackles and added two sacks and a forced fumble in Sunday's win over the Cowboys.
The sacks were for a combined loss of 20 yards, the second of which forced a fumble that the Eagles returned for a touchdown. The rookie now has at least two tackles in each of his last five games with 4.5 sacks over the same span. He will try to keep the momentum going in a Week 12 matchup with Chicago.
