Brodrick Bunkley, Akeem Jordan Heading In Different Directions

Written By Bob Cunningham On Friday, December 04, 2009

Losing Jordan hurts, but having Bunkley is good news.

Brodrick Bunkley will most likely play this Sunday, but Akeem Jordan will most likely continue to watch from the sideline.

Bunkley suffered an ankle sprain last Sunday against the Washington Redskins, but defensive coordinator Sean McDermott says he expects Bunkley to be at 100 percent come game time. It's still possible that he could wind up sitting out, but should remain probable.

Jordan, on the other hand, ran with the scout team Wednesday while participating fully in drills. Thursday saw a setback for Jordan who was limited in drills and didn't even run with the scout team. He will most likely be ruled out for the game Sunday around game-time.

"We're on a day-to-day basis right now with Akeem, same as like we were last week with Akeem," McDermott said before practice on Thursday. "I think he did some things yesterday in practice and looked good."

It's a good sign that he'll return next week when the Eagles head to the Meadowlands to face the Giants, but doesn't give much hope that he'll play this week in Atlanta.

In his place, Will Witherspoon will most likely play WILL again with Joe Mays and Jeremiah Trotter rotating in the middle. Chris Gocong will stay at SAM.

Losing Jordan for another week is huge, but hopefully it won't prove to be as costly as the loss of Matt Ryan for the Falcons, along with the potential loss of RB Michael Turner, WR Michael Jenkins, and RG Harvey Dahl.
