Eagles LB Jamar Chaney Gets Nod Over Brian Rolle
Jamar Chaney will start at weak-side linebacker in place of the injured Akeem Jordan when the Eagles host the New York Giants on Sunday night.
Jordan suffered a hamstring injury Sunday against the Cardinals and has not practiced this week. Eagles coach Andy Reid said on Wednesday that Chaney and Brian Rolle would split repetitions at practice this week, but Chaney will get the nod against the Giants.
"I'm looking forward to it," Chaney said. "It's kind of hard to sit back and watch when you're used to being out there, but it is what it is. I couldn't help being hurt in training camp and all that. My goal is just to go out there and play to the best of my ability and do everything I can do help my team win."
Rolle opened training camp as the starter at weak-side, but lost the spot to Jordan after the third preseason game. If it weren't for a hamstring injury that he battled through most of camp, Chaney may have been promoted instead of Jordan.
