Sweat inactive for Eagles after having 'emergency procedure'

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) Philadelphia defensive end Josh Sweat is inactive for Sunday's NFC wild-card game after being admitted to the hospital earlier in the week for what the team described as a "life-threatening situation."

The Eagles released a statement before the game saying Sweat was admitted to a hospital Tuesday night and underwent "an emergency procedure due to the severity of the matter."

"In the following days, Josh and our medical team did everything possible to help him return to play," the statement said. "He improved every day, but it was determined by doctors today that he was not quite ready. The fact that Josh came so close to playing in a credit to his toughness and our medical staff."
