Eagles vs. Panthers Injury Report: Nelson Agholor ruled out, Riley Cooper questionable

Here's a final update on the Eagles' Week 7 injury situation.

Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

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

Rookie wide receiver Nelson Agholor and inside linebacker Kiko Alonso are the two players who have been ruled out. Agholor hasn't practiced since leaving the team's Week 5 game early with an ankle injury. Alonso, meanwhile, returned to practice this week as a limited participant. The linebacker is aiming to return for Philadelphia's Week 9 game against the Dallas Cowboys on Nov. 8.

Four Eagles players have been ruled questionable: starting receiver Riley Cooper, inside linebacker DeMeco Ryans, inside linebacker Mychal Kendricks, and backup defensive end Brandon Bair. Cooper was a full participant in Friday's practice. Cooper is typically tough enough to play through injuries, so it seems there's a decent chance he could play. If not, the Eagles might have to get creative with personnel packages. Ryans is also tough and earlier in the week defensive coordinator Bill Davis said he expects "Mufasa" to play. Kendricks has been a full participant in practice all week, so that seems like a positive sign. Bair might be inactive on game day even if he is healthy due to Cedric Thornton and Taylor Hart being ahead of him on the depth chart.

Second-year wide receiver Josh Huff is probable to play despite suffering an injury during the Eagles' game on Monday Night Football.
