Just when you think the internet can’t get any crazier, a story like this surfaces and Twitter and the rest of the internet go bananas.
Apparently several Eagles players have fallen ill and were not able to practice today and yesterday, their status still remains in question:

Defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan missed practice last Friday and again on Wednesday because he has been under the weather. Jernigan was missing from Thursday’s media availability for the same reason and cornerback Ronald Darby may be on the day’s injury report because he also skipped the session with an illness that linebacker Mychal Kendicks said has been making its way around the locker room.
Something bad happening to a Patriots opponent can only mean one thing, Bill Belichick is behind it and has waged chemical warfare apparently:
Belichick probably hired a kid with the flu to pretend to be a Make A Wish kid that wanted to meet the #Eagles

Some excellent theories, I’m beginning to love these Patriots/Belichick conspiracies. I love a good conspiracy. Bold move by Belichick but if he wants to unleash the plague, then who am I to judge. Blaming the Patriots is becoming all the rage right now. Move over Tide Pods, move over “Thanks Obama”, it’s all about blaming the Patriots for everything. What a time to be alive. I love the hate. Hate = success. On second thought, it’s freaking flu season, get a dang flu shot you dunces.
