Eagles vs. Rams Injury Report: Mychal Kendricks out, Brandon Boykin questionable

New, comments

Eagles injury update for Friday, October 3rd, 2014.

Mitchell Leff

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

Starting inside linebacker Mychal Kendricks has been ruled out. The combination of Emmanuel Acho, Casey Matthews, and rookie first round draft pick Marcus Smith II will replace his snaps. Kendricks could possibly miss next week's Eagles-Giants game as well. If that's the case, Kendricks may not return until following Philadelphia's Week 7 bye.

Starting center Jason Kelce has also been ruled out. Kelce is targeting a Week 10 return. Backup center David Molk will start in place of Kelce. Backup offensive lineman Matt Tobin will start at left guard in place of Evan Mathis, who is currently on the team's injured reserve, designated to return list. Mathis, like Kelce, is targeting a Week 10 return.

In other news, Brandon Boykin is questionable to play. Boykin has been dealing with a hamstring injury that caused him to miss practice on Tuesday and Wednesday. Boykin returned to practice on Thursday. He spoke with reporters after practice and said there is a "good chance" he suits up this week. If Boykin can't play, starting safety Malcolm Jenkins could be moved down to the nickel cornerback position. Second-year defensive back Earl Wolff would presumably fill in at safety in place of Jenkins.

Rookie wide receiver Josh Huff has been ruled probable. Huff was ruled questionable heading into Philadelphia's Week 4 game despite being a full participant in practice all week. To be determined if Huff will be active on game-day.
