Eagles-Bears Final Injury Report: Several Chicago starters are doubtful or questionable to play

New, comments

Final Eagles injury update.

NFL: Philadelphia Eagles at Chicago Bears Dennis Wierzbicki-USA TODAY Sports

The Philadelphia Eagles released their third and final official injury report on Friday in advance of their Week 12 game against the Chicago Bears.

The big news is that kicker Jake Elliott has officially passed through the concussion protocol. He’ll be able to play in Sunday’s game. (No more Kamu Grugier-Hill kickoffs, unfortunately.)

Backup defensive tackle Beau Allen and backup tight end Trey Burton have been ruled questionable for Sunday’s game. Doug Pederson said they’ll be game-time decisions, but it seems unlikely they’ll play given how they missed practice time this week. The positive to take away here is that it doesn’t seem like their injuries will cause them to miss an extended period of time.

Second-year player Destiny Vaeao and sixth-round rookie Elijah Qualls will be the backups to Fletcher Cox and Tim Jernigan if Allen is out.

Burton’s absence would mean more playing time for Brent Celek. The Eagles also like to use Isaac Seumalo as a run-blocking “tight end” in certain situations.

Starting safety Rodney McLeod isn’t even listed on the injury report despite being limited in Wednesday’s practice. That’s a good sign.

CHICAGO BEARS INJURY REPORT (FRIDAY)

The Bears are dealing with injuries to several starters.

Starting inside linebacker Danny Trevathan is doubtful to play. He didn’t participate in practice all week. Trevathan was leading Chicago in tackles prior to getting hurt.

Starting wide receiver Josh Bellamy is also doubtful. He ranks second on the team in snaps played at his position.

Starting offensive guard Kyle Long and starting defensive end Akiem Hicks are both questionable to play. Long popped up on the injury report on Thursday was limited in practice over the past two days. Hicks, the Bears’ sack leader, didn’t practice on Wednesday and Thursday but was limited on Friday.

Starting outside linebacker Pernell McPhee popped up on the Bears’ injury report today after being a full participant in practice all week. He’s dealing with a knee issue and he’s questionable to play.

Former Eagles quarterback Mark Sanchez is questionable due to illness. Too many chicken tenders, bro.
