Only one Eagle on the injury report?

New, comments

Does anyone else find it odd that the Eagles listed only Jevon Kearse on their injury report? Two players, Shawn Andrews & LJ Smith, didn't play a snap all preseason and neither are on the injury report?

In fact, just yesterday LJ had this to say,

I'm to the point where I'm not thinking about it, but then again, I'm not 100 percent. So the mindframe is that you go out there and play. But am I physically able to hold up? That's the question. So we'll see if that happens.

The Inky quoted Smith as saying "I'm about 75 percent right now"

So are the Eagles just trying to make us feel good by only listing Kearse? I do understand that NFL rule state a player must be on the injury list of he misses even a portion of practice... but could the Eagles be asking for trouble from the NFL if they don't list a player on their injury report who is openly saying he's injured and unsure he'll play?
