Things are looking up for the Eagles this week on the injury front as both Nate Allen and Ellis Hobbs make their returns to the field. In fact, the entire team was able to practice yesterday, resulting in only two players getting the "questionable" label for Sunday night's game. Juqua Parker, who suffered a hip flexor strain against the Redskins last week, was a partial participant in practice, but according to Andy Reid, "He’ll be there by the time the game starts." King Dunlap, the other player listed as questionable, practiced fully on Friday and will likely be a game time decision. If Dunlap isn't ready to perform his duties as backup, look for rookie Austin Howard to see his fourth active game of the season.
On the Giants' side of the ball, things look a little worse for wear. Four key offensive starters have been ruled out for the game: offensive lineman David Diehl and Shaun O'Hara, wideout Steve Smith, and fullback Madison Hedgecock. Look for Sean McDermott to have a field day blitzing Eli Manning here.
Our old pal Shawn Andrews is listed as questionable due to a recent flare-up of his back problems. However, he has received an anti inflammatory epidural injection and feels ready to go, telling NBC's Andrea Kremer that he doesn't want to "miss this one for the world." Yeah, we've heard that one before.
