has a high ankle sprain. He was limited in practice through Tuesday Authentic Rhett Ellison Jersey , and he fully participated on Wednesday. The Eagles did not give Johnson an injury designation when filing their final injury report on Wednesday.Then came Thursday morning, and the Eagles suddenly decided to supplement the report by listing Johnson as questionable. Multiple reporters have characterized Johnson’s status as a toss up, with a very real possibility that he won’t play.So why wasn’t he listed as questionable in the first place? The revision to the policy from earlier in the decade ditched the “probable” label but expanded “questionable” to encompass anything less than 100 percent down to 50-50. The notion that there would be no doubt that Johnson would play on Wednesday becoming real doubt that he’ll miss the game a day later to, possibly, Johnson not playing would likely result in the NFL taking a closer look at whether the Eagles violated the injury reporting policy.Obviously, this is about more than whether the Giants had fair notice that Johnson won’t play. Betting is legal in multiple states. Bets were placed on Wednesday in reliance on the accuracy of the injury report. More importantly, some bettors may have known that Johnson was no sure thing to play, contrary to the clear message sent by the injury report.It seems that the league in recent years has become more lax regarding the injury reporting policy. If anything, the league should be tightening things up. And Philadelphia’s handling of Lane Johnson’s situation, whatever the intent Youth Kerry Wynn Jersey , should at a minimum invite careful scrutiny as to why Johnson wasn’t listed as questionable on Wednesday. On October 15, 1933, the Philadelphia Eagles, a team in its first year of existence, went to the Polo Grounds to take on the New York Giants. It did not go well: The Giants destroyed the Eagles 56-0, winning the first game between the two teams and starting what would be a longstanding trend of the Giants getting the better of their rivals.But this season the Eagles have a chance to even the rivalry for the first time ever: After the Eagles beat the Giants on Thursday nights, the rivalry’s all-time record is 86 wins for the Giants, 85 wins for the Eagles, and two ties. That means if the Eagles win on November 25, the rivalry will be tied for the first time since it started in 1933.The Giants dominated the rivalry in the early years Curtis Riley Jersey , and by 1970 they were 20 games over .500 against the Eagles, 46-26-1. More recently the rivalry has been more competitive, but it only started to turn decisively in the Eagles’ favor in the last decade, with Philadelphia winning 17 of the last 21 games between the two teams.Given the current state of the two teams, with the Eagles building a Super Bowl winner around a talented young quarterback and the Giants struggling to move on from an aging quarterback, it shouldn’t surprise anyone if the Eagles even the series in November and then move ahead in 2019. For the first time ever, the Eagles may soon be able to say they’ve had the better end of their rivalry with the Giants.
