Eagles Injury Report: Brandon Boykin, Mychal Kendricks sit out

New, comments

Eagles injury update for Wednesday, October 1st, 2014.

Howard Smith-USA TODAY Sports

The Philadelphia Eagles have released their first injury report in preparation of their Week 5 game against the St. Louis Rams.

Only two players were missing from Wednesday's practice: starting inside linebacker Mychal Kendricks and nickel cornerback Brandon Boykin.

Kendricks is dealing with a calf injury and has been out since Week 2. It appears Kendricks may miss the Eagles' next two games. If that's the case, Kendricks could be targeting a Week 8 return against the Arizona Cardinals following Philadelphia's Week 7 bye. With Kendricks likely out, the combination of Emmanuel Acho, Casey Matthews, and Marcus Smith II will take snaps at inside linebacker.

Boykin is suffering from an injury suffered during the team's most recent game against the San Francisco 49ers. Boykin left the game early and returned later on. The Eagles' slot cornerback looked hampered by the injury upon his return but he played through it. If Boykin can't play, veteran cornerback Nolan Carroll II could see time in the slot. Rookie cornerback Jaylen Watkins could also be in the mix.

Wide receiver Jeremy Maclin and tight end James Casey returned to practice on Wednesday after sitting out on Tuesday.

Rookie Josh Huff was a full participant in practice just like he was last week. Huff was listed as questionable on the team's final Week 4 injury report and did not dress on game-day. Eagles head coach Chip Kelly said on Wednesday that Huff was not "physically or mentally" ready to play last week. Perhaps that could change this week.
