Eagles Lose Key Offensive Player Ahead Of Cowboys Game
The Eagles lost a key offensive player ahead of the Cowboys game.
Coming into his weekend, the stakes are high for Sunday’s showdown between Dallas and Philadelphia.
If the Cowboys win, they secure their playoff spot once and for all. It would mark the first time since 1996 that they won the NFC East in consecutive years.
Should the Eagles emerge victorious, they would take control of their own postseason destiny. A win this week versus Dallas coupled with either beating the New York Giants next week or the Cowboys losing to the Washington Redskins next week would secure their bid.
Unfortunately for Philly, the team will not be going into arguably the year’s most important game at full strength.
Carson Wentz will be without wide receiver Nelson Agholor on Sunday.
Initially Agholor was listed as “questionable” coming into the outing, but earlier today ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter confirmed that he would be out for good.

“Eagles’ WR Nelson Agholor, listed as questionable for Sunday’s game due to a knee injury, will not play vs. Cowboys, per source,” he tweeted out.
Agholor is battling a pesky knee injury that has kept him out of practice all week.
To date, Agholor has recorded 39 receptions for 363 yards and three scores so far this year.
Time will tell how much Agholor’s absence will ultimately end up impacting Wentz’s play today.
