Sweat's rookie season ended in Week 14 after the Florida State product injured his ankle and promptly sent him to injured reserve. However, the idea that Sweat could be recovered in just a few months suggests the 2018 fourth-rounder didn't tear up his ankle too badly. If Sweat is able to make it back for OTAs, he'll have a full offseason to climb up a depth chart that may no longer have either Brandon Graham or Chris Long, both of whom will become unrestricted free agents in March.
Sweat (ankle) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday.
Sweat sustained an ankle injury during Sunday's 29-23 loss to the Cowboys, the severity of which now lands him on season-ending injured reserve. Daeshon Hall replaces the rookie fourth-round pick on the Eagles' 53-man roster, but Chris Long should be the primary beneficent of increased snaps in Sweat's stead.
Sweat (ankle) was ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's game against the Cowboys.
Sweat suffered the injury in the second quarter and had to be carted off after he was unable to put weight on his leg. It's unclear how serious the injury is, but expect the team to have a diagnosis following the game. Chris Long could see a boost in snaps with Sweat now done for the day.
Sweat (ankle) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Cowboys.
Sweat suffered the ankle injury in the second quarter of Sunday's game, and was unable to put any weight on his left leg. He was ultimately carted to the locker room, and will receive further evaluation. As long as Sweat is out, Chris Long could see an increased snap count.
Sweat (hip) is active for Sunday's game against the Cowboys, Martin Frank of The Delaware News Journal reports.
Sweat was limited in practice to end the week, but appears to have fully recovered from his hip injury. The rookie fourth-round pick will serve a depth role behind starter Brandon Graham during Sunday's game against the Cowboys.
