Starting left tackle Jason Peters is NOT listed on the Eagles’ injury report. He’s in line to play despite suffering a groin injury against Washington.
Two Eagles players have been ruled out for Sunday’s game: starting cornerback Ronald Darby and backup defensive tackle Destiny Vaeao. (Make it three you count the Eagles placing rookie running back Donnel Pumphrey on injured reserve — more details here.)
Darby suffered an ankle injury in Week 1 and is expected to be out for at least four-to-six weeks. 2017 third-round pick Rasul Douglas will likely be active this week and be part of a rotation (?) that replaces Darby. The Eagles haven’t revealed their exact plan at corner yet.
Vaeao suffered a wrist injury in the Washington game and hasn’t returned to practice since. 2017 sixth-round pick Elijah Qualls is likely to be active in his place.
Backup safety Corey Graham’s presence on the final injury report is a little interesting. The veteran was a full participant in practice all week. Graham is the third safety behind Malcolm Jenkins and Rodney McLeod. He’s in position to place on the back end when Jenkins shifts down to play the nickel cornerback spot. He also contributes on Dave Fipp’s unit. Graham played 18 defensive snaps (29%) and 13 special team snaps (50%) in Week 1.
As for Kansas City, they seem to be mostly fine. Starting defensive tackle Bennie Logan isn’t even listed on the injury report despite sitting out on Wednesday. The two Chiefs players listed as doubtful as backups. Starting safety Ron Parker is questionable but he was listed with the same designation before playing against the Patriots in Week 1.
The big loss for the Chiefs is that Eric Berry suffered a season-ending Achilles injury last week. Daniel Sorensen, who has made one start in 42 career games played, might have to take over in his place.
