The Eagles are off this week after earning the lone bye in the NFC following their 22-16 win over the Giants in the season finale.
The team didn’t take the entire week off and is returning to practice for two sessions on Thursday and Friday.
With preparation for the divisional round underway, here’s the latest buzz from the NovaCare Complex.

Philadelphia voted as a team to have padded practices during the Wild Card bye week in 2018 under then-head coach, Doug Pederson.
Fast forward to now, and a vast majority of the veterans still remaining are taking a similar approach under Sirianni.
