Eagles updated 53-man roster vs. Colts: News and notes for Week 11

The Philadelphia Eagles are less than 24 hours away from returning to the field for an intriguing matchup against the AFC South’s Indianapolis Colts.

The Birds are a huge favorite and will look to move to 9-1 on the season while erasing any taste of that Monday night disaster.

Jalen Hurts continues to cement his status for a new contract, and at the same time, Jonathan Gannon’s retooled defense will look to make adjustments after being shredded in back-to-back weeks.

With Dallas Goedert now on injured reserve, here’s your updated 53-man roster for Week 11.
