Eagles Injury Report: Ryan Mathews, Jason Peters among six players held out of practice

A Wednesday update on the Eagles' Week 11 injury situation.

The Philadelphia Eagles released their first official injury report in advance of their Week 11 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

A total of six Eagles players did not practice. Here's the list: starting quarterback Sam Bradford, starting left tackle Jason Peters, starting outside linebacker Connor Barwin, running back Ryan Mathews, backup guard/center Josh Andrews, and reserve safety Jerome Couplin.

Bradford has a separated shoulder on his non-throwing arm. He also is still going through the NFL's mandatory concussion protocol. Despite his injury status, Bradford still wants to play this week. It still seems like Mark Sanchez will be the starter for now, however.

Peters was held out on Wednesday after practicing on Thursday. Lane Johnson said he expects to start at right tackle this week, so maybe Peters will be back, but it's hard to say for sure. Let's see if Peters practices or not over the next couple of days.

Barwin was held out of practice. Chip Kelly said he has confidence in Marcus Smith to play if Barwin can't (no, he really said that), but he also said he expects Barwin to play this week. Barwin has never missed a game since signing with the Eagles in 2013.

The injury-prone Mathews is still going through the concussion protocol. He hasn't even been out on the practice field since suffering the injury during Sunday's game.

Andrews suffered a concussion last week and hasn't returned to practice. Couplin is still dealing with a shoulder injury.

Veteran linbacker DeMeco Ryans and starting safety Walter Thurmond are both listed as full participants. Thurmond sat out of Tuesday's light practice.
