After acquiring Robert Quinn in a trade with the Chicago Bears, the Philadelphia Eagles wasted no time getting him into the lineup. The veteran edge rusher is expected to make his debut this Sunday, Week 8, against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Quinn would be one of the few players without a bye week if he plays on Sunday. It’s worth noting that the Bears didn’t have their bye week before trading for Quinn, while the Eagles are fresh off theirs.

With seven games under his belt for the Bears and another 11 on the schedule for the Eagles, Quinn is on pace to play 18 times in a 17-game season. A pair of NFL players, Tony Costos and Cookie Tackwell of the Frankford Yellow Jackets and Minneapolis Red Jackets, respectively, participated in all 18 games that season in 1930.

Eagles’ Robert Quinn to play 18 games in 17-game schedule

Before 1933, when the NFL established a set schedule, clubs’ records in non-league contests were included in their overall standings. Since Philadelphia’s Frankford is prohibited by the state’s “Blue Laws” from playing home games on Sundays, the team has to play its non-league or independent games on Saturdays and then travel for Sunday’s game.

If Quinn plays all 18, he would make history as the only player to do so since the league’s 1933 expansion to include divisions and a playoff for the title. Emmanuel Sanders was the final player to appear in all 16 games of the regular season in 2019.
