Eagles Injury Report: Emmanuel Acho limited, Nick Foles ruled out

New, comments

Eagles injury update for Monday, November 24th, 2014.

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

The Philadelphia Eagles have released their first official injury report in preparation of their Week 13 game against the Dallas Cowboys. The Eagles only played their Week 12 game yesterday, but Philadelphia forces a short week with having to play in Dallas on Thursday. Keep in mind the Eagles ran a light practice on Monday; helmets were not even worn at practice.

Inside linebacker Emmanuel Acho was listed as a limited participant. Acho suffered a groin injury during the team's victory over the Titans and did not return to the game. Prior to practice, Chip Kelly said Acho wouldn't even be a participant on Monday. Acho has very little time to return to practice before the team suits up on Thursday.

If Acho can't play, Casey Matthews could see a larger role on defense. Acho and Matthews have been splitting inside linebacker reps near a 50/50 rate while filling in for injured starter DeMeco Ryans. Acho's absence could also mean more playing time for rookie first round pick Marcus Smith II, who played 14 snaps in the fourth quarter on Sunday. Kelly said the team is confident in Smith II should he need to play. Smith II has only played 74 defensive snaps through 11 games this season.

Elsewhere, starting quarterback Nick Foles has been ruled out. Kelly said Foles is scheduled to be re-evaluated either this week or next, which is consistent with what Kelly said earlier in November. Mark Sanchez, who struggled against the Titans, will start in place of Foles yet again.

Everyone else is listed as probable or better.
