The drama heading into practice on Sunday was already high in the wake of Andre Dillard's season-ending injury.

That was overshadowed shortly after practice began as NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported that Wentz was not practicing due to a soft tissue injury.

The good news is that it is considered minor and the team has been extra cautious with key players this preseason, so this should not affect him long-term.

Despite that, it is still something to watch.

Though not surprising, the new was made official on Thursday: no fans will be in attendance at Philadelphia Eagles home games.

The team pushed their message out through their social media platforms shortly after the state and city confirmed the news.

This is, of course, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic as the state and local government hope to continue to control the spread of the virus by banning public gatherings that could serve to further spread the disease.

The Eagles are aware of the shortcoming of their wide receiver room last season.

Much of the team's draft capital for 2020 was spent on that issue, with draft weekend bringing in three speedy new rookies at the position as well as a veteran with game-breaking speed.

Of course, Goodwin opted out of the 2020 season, so that was one less addition competing for a spot.

On Thursday, the team brought in another young player to compete at the position.

The Eagles held their first padded practice of the season on Monday and got some pretty poor news in regards to the defensive line.

On Wednesday, the Eagles announced another week-to-week injury. This time the victim was running back Miles Sanders.

An injury to Sanders is not a major surprise considering his recent, and since-deleted, cryptic tweet that read "Can’t catch a break".

Sanders did follow that up with another since-deleted tweet that read, "Keep calm y’all lol I’m ready for the season", both originally posed on August 11.
