Eagles Defensive Tackle Malik Jackson Will Miss Rest Of 2019 Season
Eagles head coach Doug Pederson was impressed with Hassan Ridgeway and Timmy Jernigan, Jackson’s backups in the depth chart. Jernigan listed a sofa when he forced Case Keenum and stuffed for Jackson. Pederson enjoyed what he saw out of both players.
“I believed Jernigan was tumultuous occasionally. I thought Hassan got in there particularly late in the match when Malik came out, needed a couple of pressure moments there,” Pederson told reporters. “And again, getting in match activity, it’s a little bit different, speed is a little bit different, but that I believed both guys were disruptive, and Timmy specifically did some really pleasant things.”
5Dimes has got the Eagles. The Eagles have a tremendous offense that could compensate for any potential mistakes on defense although losing Jackson is going to be tough to overcome.
