After enjoying a forced week off due to the Tennessee Titans‘ coronavirus outbreak that totaled 18 players and personnel, Coach Mike Tomlin addressed the media.

On the injury front Diontae Johnson is out of concussion protocol, so he will be back.  Derek Watt has a grade 2 hamstring pull and has been running some.  Marcus Allen has plantar fasciitis, and ran in the pool today.

“We had a productive bye week.  Good preparation for the Titans for when we play them later.  Opportunity to pause and take a global perspective on competition.  Equally important to get minor bumps and bruises taken care of and refocus”

Philadelphia had 13 sacks in 2 weeks.  Javon Hargrave will be back this week and plays right defensive tackle.  Their front 7 produces a lot of turnovers.

Focus will be on Carson WentzZach Ertz will be a significant weapon for the Eagles.

You can use the no huddle to minimize an attacking defense if you do it efficiently.

Vance McDonald‘s is very impactful in the running and passing game.  Willing attack blocker and capable puller.

Asked how the team would respond to fans if they can return: “The team will be excited if they can perform in front of fans. We feed off their energy and it would be great to have them back”

“We are not where we want to be with Dustin and the group in the punting game and need to improve.”

Teams should be punished if they are negligent with covid-19 protocols.

Quarterback mobility has our attention (speaking of Wentz’s ability to make plays with his feet)

We were given special permission (by the NFL and NFLPA) to allow us to stick to our schedule of being able to get back and practice on Monday.
