Eagles running back Ryan Mathews remains in a holding pattern.

The former first-round pick, who rushed for 1,200 yards and 14 touchdowns over his two seasons in Philadelphia, is still dealing with the lengthy rehabilitation that comes with having a herniated disc in one’s neck.
NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Saturday on Inside Training Camp Live that Mathews is not currently with the club, which was an agreed upon arrangement with the Eagles. Until they have clarity on his situation, it complicates his immediate future with the team.
“It’s a neck injury and everyone is very careful that when, if he comes back to football, that he is 100 percent healthy and ready to go,” Rapoport said. “With these neck injuries — we saw with Koa Misi going on injured reserve, we’ve seen it with Zach Orr, [who] has not yet signed with anyone after announcing he’s going to come back — you have to be very cautious about some of these 20 dollar nfl authentic jerseys and neck injuries.
“We have high expectations around here,” Wentz said in a radio interview on WIP on Thursday, via CSN Philly. “We hope and we expect to be playing into January and then to see what happens. I think that’s the biggest thing.
“Our goal is to win the NFC East and we believe we have the guys to do it.
“We just have to now go put the work in and go make things happen. We have high expectations. … 7-9 is never good enough. I never want to be done after the regular season again. That doesn’t sit well with me and it never will. We definitely have high expectations to be playing into January and then hopefully get hot and see what happens.”
The Eagles spent the offseason providing Wentz with additional weapons on offense, including receivers Alshon Jeffery and Torrey Smith. Having right tackle Lane Johnson for a full season should also help Wentz make strides in Year Two. On defense, Philly traded for defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan — a perfect fit for defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz’s system — and added pass rusher Derek Barnett in the first round of the draft.
“I look back at my time in Green Bay as a player when we were making those playoff runs and those Super Bowl runs there, and do we have as much talent on this team than we did then? We probably have more talent, right?” Pederson said in June, per Tim McManus of ESPN.
“But we also had a lot of talent in here (in Philadelphia in 2011) and where did that get us? So there’s got to be a combination of blending all this talent with the coaching staff, with my ideas and philosophy, to bring that all together, put the egos aside, put pride aside, and just go focus on winning this game that we have in front of us. I’m a big believer (that) if you do that, then you look back at the end of the season and you’re probably going to be where you want to be, and that’s playing in the postseason.”
The Eagles used this offseason to bolster the offense with a handful of accomplished veterans and cheap jerseys china– running back LeGarrette Blount along with wideouts Alshon Jeffery and Torrey Smith — while adding first-round pass rusher Derek Barnett to a defense already boasting Fletcher Cox and Brandon Graham.
Comparing these Eagles to a Packers squad that ruled the NFC for 700-plus days is certainly a stretch nfl jerseys for sale. Pederson’s overall point, though, was that his players expect to have that same type of success.
“If we win eight, go 8-8, is that a successful year? No. … I don’t coach to be average, I’ll tell you that,” Pederson said. “These players don’t practice the way they do to be average. We’re all in this together, and we’ll just continue to work every single day till we get to that goal.”
