The Eagles’ Sunday afternoon matchup with the Steelers kicks off in 90 minutes. Here’s who won’t be available come kickoff:

TE Zach Ertz

Expected. Ertz suffered a rib injury against the Browns in Week 1; he finished the game through the injury, but it was revealed to be more severe than initially thought afterwards. He missed Week 2, as well as today’s game. Doug Pederson said he expects Ertz back to full health after the bye week. Trey Burton played in his place last week, catching five passes and a touchdown.

CB Leodis McKelvin

Expected. McKelvin is still working back from a hamstring injury he suffered during the Eagles’ win over the Browns. Doug Pederson said he expects McKelvin back to full health after the bye week. In Week 2, Ron Brooks slid to the second starting CB spot in McKelvin’s place, and Jalen Mills became the team’s third corner, playing outside in nickel packages.

OL Isaac Seumalo

Expected. Seumalo is still battling a pectoral injury he suffered before the season started. Doug Pederson said this week he expects Seumalo to be back to full health after the bye week. If/when Lane Johnson is suspended, Pederson said he expects Stefen Wisniewski to slide into the left guard spot instead of Seumalo.

WR Bryce Treggs

Expected. Backup receiver.

OL Josh Andrews

Expected. Backup lineman.

OL Dillon Gordon

Expected. Backup lineman.

OL Halapoulivaati Vaitai

Expected. Backup lineman.


QB Zach Mettenberger, CB Senquez Golson, FB Roosevelt Nix, LB Steven Johnson, OL Cody Wallace, OL Chris Hubbard, DL L.T. Walton
