Eagles Injury Update: Jason Peters among three starting offensive linemen missing from practice

Everyone is hurt.

Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

The Philadelphia Eagles are dealing with a plethora of injuries as they prepare to play the New Orleans Saints this weekend. A number of key players sat out of today's practice. Keep in mind Tuesday is typically a light session. Here's a full update on the team's injury situation.

Jason Peters

Peters did not practice. The veteran left tackle (quad) tried to play through pain in the Washington game before having to leave early. Offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur said the team doesn't know what to expect from Peters in terms of being able to play this week. If Peters can't play, the Eagles might use Matt Tobin at left tackle and put Dennis Kelly at guard in place of Tobin.

Lane Johnson

Johnson sat out of Tuesday's practice. Despite suffering an MCL sprain and an ankle injury, Johnson is expected to tough it out and play this week.

Allen Barbre

As if the Eagles weren't banged up enough on the offensive line, Barbre didn't practice on Tuesday. No word on why the starting left guard didn't participate.

Mychal Kendricks

Kendricks did not practice. The starting linebacker is reportedly unlikely to play this week after aggravating his hamstring injury on Sunday.

DeMeco Ryans

Ryans did not practice. Maybe just a day of rest for the veteran?

Kiko Alonso

Alonso (knee) did not practice but he did warm up with the team, which seems like a somewhat encouraging sign for his potential return.

Byron Maxwell

Maxwell (quad) did not practice. Defensive coordinator Bill Davis said he believes Philadelphia's starting cornerback will be available this week, but some reporters noticed Maxwell was seen walking with a limp. After practice, Maxwell told reporters he expects to play but it's still early in the week to know for sure.

Cedric Thornton

Thornton did practice on Tuesday. Davis said his status is day-to-day and going in the direction. The Eagles starting defensive end has missed the last two games due to a broken pinky finger.

Taylor Hart

Basically the same situation as Thornton, expect Hart is recovering from a shoulder injury.

Brandon Bair

The potential return of Thornton and Hart is important because it seems like Bair won't play this week. Davis said it will be hard for Bair to play. Reports indicate Bair could be out at least two weeks.

Chris Maragos

Special teams ace and nickel safety Chris Maragos was seen practicing. Maragos missed the Washington game after being ruled questionable on the injury report.


The Eagles will release their first official Week 5 injury report tomorrow on Wednesday.
