Eagles Injury Report: Byron Maxwell returns to practice

A Wednesday update on the Eagles' Week 16 injury situation.

Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

The Philadelphia Eagles released their second official injury report in advance of their Week 15 game against the Arizona Cardinals.

Byron Maxwell returned to practice, as expected. On Wednesday, the starting cornerback told reporters he expects to play this week. Maxwell also said he could barely walk earlier this week, so it remains to be seen how he'll hold up this weekend. It's at least a good sign that he was a full participant on Thursday.

Jordan Matthews was a full participant in practice on Thursday after being limited on Wednesday. That's a good sign as well.

Vinny Curry was the only player to miss practice. He's not injured; he was merely listed with an illness. One would assume he'll be back at practice tomorrow.

For the second week in a row, the Eagles are mostly healthy heading into their game. They'll need everyone they've got against this good Cardinals team.
