Philadelphia Eagles Defensive End Stretchered Off

The Philadelphia Eagles are struggling early in Week 17 against the Saints, and the bad news doesn't stop there, as pass rusher Josh Sweat was carted off with what seemed to be a neck injury, in what was a scary scene in Philadelphia.

The Eagles have updated his condition, as they've now confirmed he's been taken to a local hospital with a neck injury, but has motion in all his extremities, which is an incredibly positive update.

On the year, Sweat has a career best with 11 sacks, and on the verge of a playoff run, the Eagles will be hoping he is okay and can potentially return to the field in the coming weeks.
