Good to go

Pascal (groin) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Titans.

Analysis: Quez Watkins has taken more of the snaps in recent weeks after rotating with Pascal for much of the season, and given Watkins' recent surge in production it's possible that continues Sunday against the Titans even after Pascal managed a full practice Friday and was cleared for the game.

Limited due to groin injury

Pascal was a limited participant at Wednesday's walkthrough due to a groin injury.

Analysis: Seeing as Pascal played a season-low nine offensive snaps against the Packers, the wideout presumably picked up the groin injury sometime in the first half of the Eagles' primetime win. The extent of the issue remains unclear, but it's encouraging to see Pascal at least get some work in during the first session of Week 13 prep. He'll have two more opportunities to log a full practice before Philadelphia needs to make a decision on his status for Sunday's matchup against the Titans.

Plays season-low eight snaps

Pascal went without a target while playing eight of the Eagles' 79 snaps on offense in Sunday's 40-33 win over the Packers.

Analysis: Pascal's 10 percent snap share marked a notable downturn from Week 11, when he played 43 percent of the snaps in a win over the Colts. The Eagles handed most of Pascal's playing time to Quez Watkins (84 percent share), who operated as the team's clear No. 3 receiver after splitting the role with Pascal in Week 11.

Catches one pass

Pascal pulled in one of his two targets and gained 10 yards in Monday's loss to Washington.

Analysis: The Eagles offense was muted overall with the Commanders dominating time of possession. Pascal hasn't made much of an impression even when the Eagles have most of the ball, so it's no surprise to see his impact remain minimal in the team's first loss.

Records one reception

Pascal caught his only target and gained eight yards in Thursday's victory over the Texans.

Analysis: Pascal continues to play a minor role at most. He's scored just once all season and is averaging 1.1 catches for 13.0 yards per game. He continues to trail Quez Watkins in snap count (35 to 20 in this instance), so even an injury to A.J. Brown or DeVonta Smith might not give Pascal a fantasy-relevant role.

Scores first touchdown of season

Pascal caught two passes for 57 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win against Pittsburgh.

Analysis: Pascal hadn't scored all season and hadn't caught a pass since Week 3, so he must have enjoyed the chance to contribute against the Steelers. His 34-yard score on an out-and-up early in the third quarter stretched the Eagles' lead to 28-10. Despite that play, however, he remains an unappealing fantasy option, as he's caught just eight passes through seven games.

Not targeted in Week 5 win

Pascal went without a catch for the second week in a row Sunday against the Cardinals.

Analysis: While this wasn't the first time this season that Pascal has gone without a catch, it did represent the first time he went without a target. He also saw the field for a season-low 13 offensive snaps. The Eagles are barely looking to their secondary weapons thus far and have little incentive to change that given their 5-0 record.

No catches against Jaguars

Pascal finished with zero catches on one target Sunday against Jacksonville.

Analysis: Pascal caught at least one pass in each of the first three games of the season, though he didn't play a major role in any of those contests, topping out at just three catches. He was blanked in Week 4, with no wideout other than A.J. Brown and DeVonta Smith catching a pass.

Oct 3, 2022 5:20 PM EST


Three catches in win

Pascal was targeted three times in Sunday's Week 3 win against Washington, leading to three catches for 18 yards.

Analysis: Pascal narrowly trailed Quez Watkins in snaps (33 to 30), but he beat him 3-1 in targets and 3-0 in receptions. Still, neither of the Eagles' depth options was able to do much on a day in which A.J. Brown and DeVonta Smith each received double-digit targets. Those two have combined for 86 percent of the Eagles' wide receiver targets this season, so there isn't room for Pascal to play much of a role.

Catches two passes

Pascal pulled in both of his targets Monday against the Vikings, finishes with 14 yards on two receptions.

Analysis: Pascal doesn't appear to be a big part of the Eagles' plans at the moment. He's been fourth on the wideout depth chart in terms of snap count in both of the first two weeks, though he did at least jump up from 17 snaps in Week 1 to 31 in Week 2. He's received just three targets on the year, though that does put him ahead of No. 3 receiver Quez Watkins, who's been targeted just twice.

Sep 20, 2022 2:15 PM EST


Pulls in lone target

Pascal was targeted once in Sunday's 38-35 win over the Lions, catching one pass for seven yards.

Analysis: It wasn't a particularly notable performance for Pascal, but it did make him the lone Eagles wideout not named A.J. Brown to pull in a pass. Brown's 13 targets and 10 catches didn't leave much room for anyone else, and Pascal won't necessarily be the primary beneficiary if the Eagles spread the ball around more in the future, as he saw the field for just 17 snaps.

Returns from food poisoning

Pascal returned to practice Thursday after missing the first week of training camp with food poisoning, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

Analysis: A late start to camp shouldn't be the end of the world for a 27-year-old with 44 career starts, especially given that his new head coach was his offensive coordinator for three seasons in Indianapolis. On the other hand, Pascal has never done a ton with is playing time, and last year in particular he was one of the NFL's least productive starting WRs on a per-snap, per-route or per-target basis (384 yards, 5.6 YPT, 872 snaps). He's unlikely to get that much playing time in Philadelphia, where A.J. Brown and DeVonta Smith are stone-cold locks to be the lead duo at wide receiver, while Quez Watkins, Jalen Reagor and Greg Ward are all legitimate candidates for the third and fourth spots. Pascal at least is in good shape to make the roster, in part because his one-year, $1.5 million contract is fully guaranteed, per overthecap.com.

No timetable for return

Coach Nick Sirianni said Monday that Pascal (illness) does not have a return timetable, Martin Frank of The Delaware News Journal reports.

Analysis: Pascal is dealing with a stomach illness, one which has prevented him from participating in training camp yet. If Pascal is unable to get back on the field in the near future and begin establishing a rapport with Jalen Hurts, it could lower his chances of earning a notable depth role in Philadelphia's wide receiver corps, which is headlined by A.J. Brown and DeVonta Smith.

Dealing with illness

Pascal is not practicing Saturday due to an illness, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Analysis: Pascal has been sidelined due to an illness since Wednesday, per EJ Smith of The Philadelphia Inquirer, but the Eagles' practice report indicates that the wideout is not dealing with COVID. The 27-year-old wideout is competing for a depth gig in Philadelphia's wide receiver corps, so it would benefit him to return to training camp as soon as possible.

Joining Eagles

Pascal is signing a one-year contract with the Eagles, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Analysis: Pascal caught only 38 passes last season despite playing 872 offensive snaps, but he does have the benefit of familiarity with Eagles coach Nick Sirianni, who was the Colts' offensive coordinator from 2018 to 2020. The 27-year-old wideout is now set to compete with Quez Watkins and Jalen Reagor for roles behind No. 1 receiver DeVonta Smith, though the Eagles still have plenty of time to add another receiver (or two) to that mix.

Just one reception in season finale

Pascal had one reception for seven yards on two targets in Sunday's loss at Jacksonville.

Analysis: Pascal had another season of being a reliable, if not spectacular, contributor in Indy's offense with 38 receptions for 384 yards and three touchdowns, but averaged just 10.1 yards per reception -- his lowest since his rookie season (9.9). It's not clear if he's in Indy's plans for 2022 as he'll be a free agent.

Jan 11, 2022 12:25 PM EST


Just one reception Sunday

Pascal had one reception for eight yards on two targets in Sunday's loss to Las Vegas.

Analysis: Pascal returned after missing a game while on the reserve/COVID-19 list. He played on 34 of the offense's 56 snaps, which was slightly more than Ashton Dulin's 27 snaps and represented a season low in percentage of offensive snaps. Pascal may see more activity in the third receiver role next week against Jacksonville.

Comes off COVID-19 list

The Colts reinstated Pascal (illness) from the reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday.

Analysis: After testing positive for the virus last Saturday, Pascal was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list just hours before the Colts' eventual win over the Cardinals. Though he missed the Colts' first official Week 17 practice while in isolation, the wideout should get back on the field Thursday and Friday and put himself on a path to play Sunday against the Raiders. The return of Pascal will likely result in a smaller role for Ashton Dulin, who handled his third-largest offensive snap share (43 percent) of the season Week 16.

Dec 30, 2021 6:29 AM EST


Placed on COVID list

Pascal has been placed on the reserve/COVID 19 list by the Colts.

Analysis: In a corresponding move, wide receiver Keke Coutee was elevated from the team's practice squad. In Pascal's absence, Michael Pittman, T.Y. Hilton and Ashton Dulin are slated to lead Indy's wideout corps in Saturday night's game against the Cardinals.

Dec 25, 2021 1:38 PM EST


Leads team with 23 receiving yards

Pascal caught one of two targets for 23 yards in Saturday's 27-17 win over New England.

Analysis: Pascal's modest stat line was enough to lead the Colts in receiving yards, as the team took a page out of the Patriots' playbook against Buffalo and completed just five passes while trampling New England with the running game. After totaling a season-high 58 receiving yards in Week 9 against the Jets, Pascal has just six catches for 50 yards in five subsequent games.
