PHILADELPHIA (CBS/AP) — Philadelphia Eagles coach Doug Pederson says it was a “selfish act” for linebacker Kamu Grugier-Hill to hide concussion symptoms from the team’s medical staff during a game against the Miami Dolphins on Dec. 1. Grugier-Hill said Thursday that he told doctors he hurt his shoulder on the first play of the game even though he knew he injured his head. He finished the game but missed the next one against the New York Giants this past Monday night. Grugier-Hill has since been cleared from concussion protocol and expects to play Sunday at Washington. “We know how important head and neck injuries are to our league and to just the person, the player himself and the well-being of the player,” Pederson said Friday. “So from that standpoint, to have this come back like this and for him to admit what he has said and done, it’s very disappointing for me as a head coach, after putting our players through meetings and instructing … [Read more...] about Doug Pederson: ‘Selfish Act’ For Eagles’ Kamu Grugier-Hill To Hide Concussion Symptoms During Dolphins Game

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — A backup quarterback became a legend and brought the city its first-ever Super Bowl championship; we trusted the process; we survived the Chip Kelly era; a former National League East rival endeared himself to the City of Brotherly Love; and a big orange mascot became a global phenomenon.

In stepped Foles for the final three regular-season games, but he didn’t light it up right away, until his memorable playoff run which culminated in a Super Bowl MVP. Four days … [Read more...] about From Nick Foles Leading Eagles To Super Bowl To Gritty’s Debut, Here Are Most Memorable Philadelphia Sports Moments Of Past Decade
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — It wasn’t pretty — actually, it was very ugly — but the Eagles eked out an overtime win over the Giants on Monday night to put themselves in a tie with the Cowboys for first place in the NFC East. But it was a costly win, with Lane Johnson and Alshon Jeffery both going down with injuries. Luckily for the banged-up Birds, 3-10 Washington is on tap. However, they’ve won two of their last three and are showing no signs of giving up. Can the Eagles string together a couple wins and stay in the driver’s seat of the division? CBS3’s football experts give their predictions. Carson Wentz sure changed the narrative on his young career and season with his fourth-quarter comeback against the Giants. Head coach Doug Pederson said Monday night’s performance was the best of Wentz’s career. Even though it was against a 2-10 team, do you think this win helps propel Wentz and the Eagles the rest of the season?
