Eagles' Josh Sweat: Best season of career
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sweat (wrist) had 38 tackles (24 solo), six sacks, two defensed passes and three forced fumbles across 14 games in 2020.

Sweat managed career-high marks across the board before landing on IR due to a wrist injury Week 15. He was expected to return in the event of an Eagles postseason run, however, which bodes well for his chances of being ready for the (tentative) start of offseason workouts. He'll be entering the final year of his rookie deal in 2021.

Eagles' Josh Sweat: Goes to injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sweat (wrist) was placed on injured reserve Saturday.

The 2018 fourth-round draft choice contributed two sacks against the Saints as Philadelphia pulled off a Week 14 upset, but he had to exit in the first quarter of last Sunday's loss to Arizona. Now confirmed out for at least three games given his IR designation, Sweat won't have a chance at another appearance this season unless the Eagles reach the playoffs and advance a round.

Eagles' Josh Sweat: Set to miss a few weeks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sweat (wrist) will not suit up against the Cowboys on Sunday and is expected to miss multiple weeks, James Palmer of NFL Network reports.

Sweat appears to be in danger of missing the final two games of the regular season, but it sounds like his injury is something that could allow him to return for the playoffs, in the event that the Eagles make it to the postseason. Genard Avery and Vinny Curry will both be candidates for increased roles as long as Sweat remains sidelined.

Eagles' Josh Sweat: Injures wrist Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sweat was forced out of Sunday's game versus the Cardinals with a wrist injury.

Sweat went directly to the locker room in the first quarter, possibly to undergo an X-ray. The third-year defensive end is a fierce pass rusher with six sacks this season. Vinny Curry likely will see an uptick in usage behind starter Brandon Graham and Derek Barnett moving forward.

Eagles' Josh Sweat: Two sacks Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sweat recorded five tackles (four solo), two sacks and a forced fumble across 25 defensive snaps in Sunday's win over the Saints.

Sweat caused headaches for Taysom Hill all day, taking down the quarterback twice during the contest, one of which resulted in a fumble that was recovered by the Eagles. He is now third on the team in sacks with six to go along with 38 tackles (24 solo) on the year.

Eagles' Josh Sweat: Notches third sack
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sweat had two tackles and a sack during Sunday's 25-20 win over the 49ers.

Sweat played a season-low 37 percent of defensive snaps Sunday, but that didn't stop him from adding to his sack total. The 23-year-old has 10 tackles (seven solo), three sacks and one forced fumble through Week 4.

Eagles' Josh Sweat: Flashes pass-rushing ability
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sweat recorded 21 tackles, four sacks and a pass breakup over 16 regular-season games in 2019.

In his second professional season, Sweat displayed a strong pass-rushing presence, logging 15 quarterback pressures. The 22-year-old finished with 355 defensive snaps, ranking fourth among the Eagles' defensive ends behind Brandon Graham, Derek Barnett and Vinny Curry. Curry will be a free agent in March while both Graham and Barnett are under contract in 2020, so Sweat will likely work in a rotational role again.

Eagles' Josh Sweat: First career sack
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sweat made four solo tackles and a sack in Sunday's win over the Jets.

The second-year pro finally got his first sack in the 14th game of his career. He still has little upside on this defense, though, as he hasn't surpassed a 35-percent snap share this season.

Eagles' Josh Sweat: Back at practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sweat (knee) returned to practice Monday, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

Sweat sat out Sunday's practice due to an undisclosed knee injury and now appears back to full health. The second-year pro is competing for a rotational role in Philadelphia's defense.

August 18, 2019 05:48 PM
Eagles' Josh Sweat: Out for Sunday's practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sweat was unable to participate in Sunday's practice and is considered day-to-day with a knee injury, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

It's unclear how Sweat picked up the injury, but it's likely that it's nothing serious, as evidenced by his day-to-day designation. Expect the team to give a clearer picture on Sweat's status in the coming days leading up to Thursday's preseason game. With the Florida State product out, Eli Harold could see an increase in reps.

Eagles' Josh Sweat: Bulks up in offseason
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sweat (ankle) added 20 pounds of weight this offseason, Jimmy Kempski of the Philly Voice reports.

Sweat also appears to have fully recovered from the ankle injury that cut his rookie season short in Week 14. The 2018 fourth-round pick played 68 defensive snaps across nine games with the Eagles last season, notching only one tackle. He also played 24 snaps on special teams.

Eagles' Josh Sweat: Expected back for OTAs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sweat (ankle) is expected to be healthy in time for the start of OTAs this spring, Dave Spadaro of the Eagles' official site reports.

Sweat's rookie season ended in Week 14 after the Florida State product injured his ankle, which 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.

Eagles' Josh Sweat: Lands on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 beneficiary of increased snaps in Sweat's stead.

Eagles' Josh Sweat: Done for day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Eagles' Josh Sweat: Carted off Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Eagles' Josh Sweat: Active Week 10
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Eagles' Josh Sweat: Questionable for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sweat (hip) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Cowboys.

Sweat was a surprise addition to Friday's injury report, having been sidelined in practice after participating without issue to begin the week. Expect an update on the rookie fourth-round pick's availability sometime prior to Sunday's divisional matchup against the Cowboys.

Eagles' Josh Sweat: Debut imminent
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sweat will likely be active and see the field for Sunday's game against the Vikings, Dave Spadaro of the Eagles' official site reports.

Sweat, the Eagles' 2018 fourth-round pick, should finally see some snaps in place of Derek Barnett (shoulder). Just how many remains to be seen, but expect the rookie to work in behind Michael Bennett and Chris Long, both of whom should see increased playing time.

August 5, 2018 10:12 PM
Eagles' Josh Sweat: Returns to practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sweat (leg) returned to practice Sunday, Eliot Shorr-Parks reports.

Sweat limped off the field during Thursday's practice, but his return Sunday suggests the fourth-round rookie didn't sustain a severe injury. Sweat is competing for a rotational role at defensive end. Given the depth Philadelphia has at the position, he's likely facing an uphill battle for playing time in 2018.

August 2, 2018 02:32 PM
Eagles' Josh Sweat: Limps off practice field
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sweat suffered a left leg injury during Thursday's practice, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Sweat, a 2018 fourth-round draft pick out of Florida State, has endured left leg issues ever since he suffered a torn ACL and dislocation of his left knee upon entering college. This caused him to wear a brace throughout his time with the Seminoles, and he'll likely remain predisposed to issues due to his history. It's unclear how serious this particular injury is, but the Eagles should have an update on Sweat's health before Friday's practice.
