The Eagles practiced Wednesday. Then they took a very long time (read: three and a half hours longer than usual) to release their injury report.
But it has arrived! And it contained no surprises.
Two things of note.
One, Dorial Green-Beckham returned to practice Wednesday after missing practice all last week ahead of missing the Eagles’ loss to Washington. It would be nice for the Eagles to have every weapon at their disposal against an elite Ravens defense.
Two, Allen Barbre sat out practice on Wednesday. Doug Pederson said Wednesday morning that he expects Barbre to be able to go at right tackle on Sunday against Baltimore, but if he can’t, there’s a contingency plan in place for Isaac Seumalo to play right tackle in relief.
And, as we now know, Brandon Brooks’ ‘illness’ which has forced him to miss two games this season is actually an anxiety issue he’s been dealing with. He returned to practice on Wednesday, and Doug Pederson said he expects the team’s starting right guard to be able to go on Sunday. Here’s hoping Brooks feels well enough to play the game he loves.
