Will Parks Out 'Multiple Weeks' As Injuries Continue to Pile in Philadelphia
It seems like a new injury appears on the Eagles every day and unfortunately, they will be down another player before the season begins.
Newly acquired safety Will Parks went down today with a hamstring injury and his timetable to return will be 4-6 weeks.
Parks is the third safety on the team but he was expected to play a much bigger role on the team. He was sharing time with Nickey-Robey Coleman in a nickel role with Parks serving as the “Big-Nickel” and Robey Coleman the regular nickel. Parks had signed with the team back in March and looked to share a role with Rodney McLeod and Jalen Mills as well.
However, Parks apparently has a history of quick recoveries from injuries, so it could be likely that he’ll return sooner than the given timetable from the team. It’ll be interesting to see if another safety will fill that elevated safety position, or if Jim Schwartz will just forget about it until Will Parks recovers. Schwartz had mentioned before that defensive positions like safety are difficult positions to pick up as a rookie so it’s unlikely that K’Von Wallace will fill in for Parks.
With the injuries starting to rack up the Eagles should try to figure out why so many of their players are getting injured before the season even starts. My guess is the NovaCare Complex was built on an ancient burial ground and the players are facing the consequences of a curse.
