Long has yet to decide whether he will play in 2018, NFL.com reports.
The Eagles reportedly offered Long, who's currently under contract through 2018, a one-year extension that would bump his salary from $1 million in base pay to $4 million in guaranteed money. The soon-to-be 33-year-old has yet to accept or decline the pact and presumably won't take any action until he decides whether or not he will continue his playing career.
Long recorded two solo tackles, one sack and one forced fumble Sunday against the Rams.
Sunday was the third time this season that Long posted a sack and a forced fumble in the same game. However, he logged a season-low 18 defensive snaps Sunday, so the performance could be considered an outlier. Long's erratic production keeps him off the fantasy radar, except in the deepest of IDP formats.
Long (foot) is active for Thursday's game against the Panthers, Zach Berman of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Long was limited in practice this week due to a foot injury but will take the field Thursday night nonetheless. The veteran defensive end has been averaging a little less than 25 defensive snaps per game but that number could shrink Thursday should the Eagles decide to play it safe with Long.
Long is nursing a foot injury and was limited during Tuesday's practice.
Long, who was also limited in the Eagles' first practice of the week Monday, likely picked up the injury in the team's victory over the Cardinals on Sunday. The veteran defensive end has accrued two sacks through the Eagles' first five games, but his standing as a rotational player limits his IDP ceiling, as his role inhibits his ability to rack up tackles.
