The Philadelphia Eagles released their first official injury report on Wednesday in advance of their Week 9 game against the Denver Broncos.
Every player on the 53-man roster (including new Eagles running back Jay Ajayi) was a full participant in practice except for starting cornerback Ronald Darby. Darby is still limited.
It’s early in the week, but this could signal Darby still isn’t ready to return. If that’s the case, perhaps he’ll be ready to play against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 11 after Philadelphia’s Week 10 bye.
In other Eagles cornerback news, Patrick Robinson returned to practice on Wednesday. That’s good news considering he suffered a concussion on Sunday and had to leave the Eagles-49ers game early. Robinson has been having a good season for Philly while playing both on the outside and in the slot.
For those wondering about Sidney Jones: there’s no real update on him. He’s still on the non-football injury list. The last we heard on October 16 was that he’s “not close” to coming back. The Eagles have until Week 12 to activate him from NFI. From there, they have a 21-day window where Jones can practice. After that, they have to either put him on the 53-man roster or shut him down for the season.
Halapoulivaati Vaitai was listed as a full participant on the injury report with a hip issue. It’s not ideal to see Big V banged up considering the Eagles’ lack of depth at tackle, but at least he’s fully practicing.
