The bye week helped the Eagles in the standings and in the training room.
On Monday morning, the team announced that it had activated the 21-day practice window for starting left guard Isaac Seumalo, who suffered a knee injury in the Week 2 home opener against the Los Angeles Rams.
The Eagles can put Seumalo on the active roster at any point during this three-week span. There are currently two open roster spots after the team waived tight end Jason Croom and placed safety Marcus Epps on the Reserve/COVID-19 list last week.
Seumalo's injury contributed to the instability of the offensive line for the Eagles in the first half of the season. The Eagles used seven different offensive line combinations in the first eight games of 2020.
A third-round pick in 2016, Seumalo took over as a starter in 2018 and signed a contract extension in the 2019 offseason. He played 99 percent of the snaps on offense last year. A fixture now at left guard, Seumalo has also started games at right guard and right tackle.
