Would It Be Feasible for Eagles to Quarantine a QB in 2020? 

The Morning Call reports the 31-year-old Gaskins began yelling at the woman about the Eagles' 20-14 loss to New Orleans in Sunday's playoff game.

Gaskins allegedly punched the woman in the face and told her if she left the room Gaskins would kill the dog.

When police arrived, they found the white Pomeranian in the microwave. The device hadn't been turned on.

Gaskins, however, denied the allegations in a call with NBC10. She said the incident has nothing to do with the Eagles game, and she denied that the dog was put in the microwave.

She was released on $20,000 bail.
