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 to playing time in 2018.
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.
