Eagles injury report: Jaylen Watkins sits out

Eagles injury update for Wednesday, September 3rd, 2014.

Mitchell Leff

The Philadelphia Eagles head into their 2014 NFL season opener at home against the Jacksonville Jaguars with a relatively healthy 53-man roster.

The Eagles wore full pads for Wednesday's practice. The only players who didn't participate were wide receiver Josh Huff, offensive lineman Matt Tobin, and rookie cornerback Jaylen Watkins. Watkins is the new addition to that list. He practiced on Tuesday but sat out on Wednesday with a sore hamstring. It's probably worth noting that Watkins missed some time in the summer with a hamstring injury. The good news for Philadelphia is that none of those three players are starters.

In more good news, running back Chris Polk practiced yet again. He said on Tuesday that he expects to be ready for the Jaguars game. Polk serves as important running back depth and also contributes on special teams.

Harbor, a former fourth round draft pick of the Eagles, is Jacksonville's second string tight end and he likely won't play. Johnson is a depth running back. Pasztor played over 800 snaps as one of the Jags' starting offensive tackles in 2013.

Both Jacksonville's punter and kicker were limited participants in Wednesday's practice. A few other starters were limited.
