The Philadelphia Eagles returned to practice today for the first time since their loss to the Arizona Cardinals. Now the team is preparing for the Washington Redskins this week. Keep in mind Tuesday is typically a light session. Here's a full update on the Eagles' injury situation.
Maxwell did not practice. It doesn't seem like he's optimistic about his playing chances this week.
Byron Maxwell said he has a sprain to the SC joint in his collarbone area. Said hurts more than AC sprain. Couldn't play if game was today.— Jeff McLane (@Jeff_McLane) December 22, 2015
Maxwell tried to play through injury after getting hurt in the Cardinals game, but he ultimately had to leave and didn't return.
Rowe did not practice. The team's rookie cornerback suffered a concussion on Sunday evening. Rowe said he expects to play this week, but it's not up to him just yet. He still has to pass through the NFL's mandatory concussion protocol and be cleared to play.
If the Eagles are without Maxwell and/or Rowe, that means the Birds will have to rely more on E.J. Biggers and/or Jaylen Watkins. Rookie undrafted cornerback Denzel Rice will likely be active as a backup.
Bill Davis also suggested Walter Thurmond could used at outside cornerback. If that's the case, Ed Reynolds could be in line for more snaps at safety.
Logan did not practice. The team's starting nose tackle is dealing with a calf injury. Howard Eskin reports Logan might not play this week. If Logan can't play, Beau Allen will have to step up. The Eagles will also likely activate Brandon Bair.
Ajirotutu did not practice. The special teams ace is reportedly unlikely to play this week. With Ajirotutu potentially out, the Eagles will likely keep Jonathan Krause on the active game day roster.
The Eagles will release their first official Week 16 injury report tomorrow on Wednesday.
