An update on the Eagles' Week 7 injury situation.

The Philadelphia Eagles released their first official injury report in advance of their Week 7 game against the Carolina Panthers.

The big news is that inside linebackers Mychal Kendricks and Kiko Alonso returned to practice. Prior to Wednesday's light training session, Bill Davis indicated both linebackers would practice to some extent this week but he didn't seem confident about their playing chances.

Despite this caution, Kendricks was a full participant in practice. He also told reporters that he hopes to play and could play if today was game day. Kendricks has been recovering from a hamstring injury he suffered in Week 2 and then later aggravated when returning in Week 4.

Alonso, meanwhile, returned to practice for the first time since leaving Philadelphia's Week 2 game with a knee injury. Alonso was a limited participant on Wednesday and told reporters he's probably not going to play this week. He also added that he hopes to return after the Eagles' bye, which would be the Nov. 8 game against the Dallas Cowboys.

One could argue the Eagles shouldn't rush Kendricks and/or Alonso back to the field given the way Jordan Hicks and DeMeco Ryans are playing right now.

The three players missing from practice were: wide receiver Nelson Agholor, wide receiver Riley Cooper, and inside linebacker DeMeco Ryans. Agholor hasn't played since suffering an ankle injury in Week 5. Cooper and Ryans both suffered injuries in Philadelphia's victory over the Giants on Monday night. Davis said he expected Ryans to rest today but expects him to play against the Panthers because he's a "warrior."

Backup defensive end Brandon Bair returned to practice for the first time since suffering a groin injury in Week 4. He was a limited participant.

Second-year wide receiver Josh Huff was a full participant despite suffering an injury on Monday night.
