When it rains, it pours. The Philadelphia Eagles announced on Friday that offensive guard Matt Pryor has been placed on the COVID-19 list.

This is obviously concerning, but not necessarily indicative that Pryor has the virus.

Pryor had been the team’s starting RG dating back to week 3 after jumping in against the Rams in week 2. Jamon Brown will start in his place.

We’re sending our best wishes to Matt at this time in what may be a scary situation. Hopefully, he doesn’t have the virus and this is a case of the team doing a brilliant job of monitoring their players, conforming with league guidelines, and ensuring the safety of everyone in the organization.
