Riley Cooper And Colt Anderson Out For SundayBREAKING NEWS, Eagles, News, Wide Receivers Wednesday, September 5th, 2012
The Eagles will be asking a lot of rookie free agent wide receiver Damaris Johnson this week. The rookie will be returning punts for the Birds, and will probably find himself on the field as a wide receiver.
Slot receiver Jason Avant doesn’t have the speed to threaten team outside, but Johnson does, so should anything happen to the starters, DeSean Jackson and Jeremy Maclin, the rookie will be in there.
The reason for the Eagles only dressing four wide receivers for the game is the health of Riley Cooper. The third year wideout is recovering from a fractured shoulder blade and ruled out for this game.
The Eagles will only be dressing four wide receivers this weekend.
Special teams standout Colt Anderson will miss the game as well. He’s recovering from off season knee surgery.
