Josh Brent is remaining patient in his quest to get back on an NFL field for the first time since December 2012.
Brent is on the 53-man roster, but was inactive against the Giants. He could be an option this week, though, with Crawford’s status unknown and the Eagles possessing a strong running game.
“I have not received any indication from the coaches whether I will or will not be playing,” said Brent, who has had a long journey back since his December 2012 drunken driving accident took the life of teammate and friend Jerry Brown Jr.
“I’m just biding my time being the best teammate that I can be. When they call, I’ll be ready.”
Brent said he’s getting “closer” to his ideal playing weight of 320 pounds and is more than ready to return.
