The Philadelphia Eagles have released their final official injury report in preparation for their Week 16 game against the Washington Redskins.
Redskins-Eagles Preview: Can Phillly rebound?
After a sobering loss to the Cowboys that has put their season in peril, can the Eagles accomplish the first step in rebounding to finish strong by defeating the moribund Redskins?
Nick Foles has been ruled out due to a fractured collarbone injury suffered in Week 9. Veteran backup passer Mark Sanchez will start in place of Foles. Backing up Sanchez will be second-year signal caller Matt Barkley. Wide receiver Brad Smith will serve as the game-day emergency quarterback. There's a report that Foles will also miss Philadelphia's Week 17 game so he might not play again this season.
Trent Cole was ruled out earlier in the week. The veteran pass rusher had surgery on his broken hand. It's possible that Cole may have already played his last game with the Eagles. Brandon Graham will start in Cole's place. There's reason to believe Graham could have a big game. The Eagles are reportedly trying to work out a contract extension with Graham.

Washington will be missing a few key players. Defensive end Jason Hatcher is out due to a knee injury. Hatcher is one of the team's best pass rushers.
Starting safety Brandon Meriweather was placed on injured reserve. He won't play.
Starting inside linebacker Keenan Robinson was limited in practice this week but has been ruled doubtful. Another key loss for Washington.
Starting left tackle Trent Williams has been limited in practice due to a shoulder injury. He is questionable. It seems like he'll try to play but he won't be at 100%.
