The encouraging news is that starting defensive tackle Fletcher Cox was a full participant in practice today after being listed as “limited” on Monday. After practice, Cox told reporters he was unsure if he’d play this week. So we’ll have to see how this situation plays out.
Cox has been out ever since suffering a calf injury in Week 3. If he can’t suit up, it’ll be Beau Allen starting next to Tim Jernigan once again. The fact that Cox is practicing at least gives him a chance to play this week.
Other than Cox, the Eagles’ Tuesday injury report is identical to Monday’s edition.
Three players are still not practicing: starting cornerback Ronald Darby, starting right tackle Lane Johnson, and running back Wendell Smallwood. They’re all unlikely to suit up for this game. Here’s a positive update on Darby:

Three players were limited: defensive end Chris Long, defensive tackle Destiny Vaeao, and defensive tackle Beau Allen. The Eagles are dealing with a number of injuries at defensive tackle this week so that would make getting Cox back even better.
Starting safety Rodney McLeod, starting linebacker Jordan Hicks, and backup safeties Corey Graham and Jaylen Watkins were all full go in practice.
