The Philadelphia Eagles released their second official injury report on Thursday ahead of their Week 4 game against the Los Angeles Chargers.
There’s no major change from yesterday’s injury report. The only thing that’s different is starting center Jason Kelce was a full participant in practice after being limited on Wednesday.
Five players are still not practicing: defensive tackle Fletcher Cox, cornerback Ronald Darby, safety Corey Graham, safety Jaylen Watkins, and defensive tackle Destiny Vaeao. They’re all unlikely to play this week.
Yesterday, the Daily News reported Cox could be out for one or two more games in addition to this week. That certainly isn’t good news for the defense.
On the bright side, the Eagles are getting Jordan Hicks and Rodney McLeod back. McLeod’s presence is especially important given the injuries to his primary backups: Graham and Watkins.
In non-injury news, Stefen Wisniewski was seen taking first team left guard reps in individual drills. Team drills are closed to the media, so it remains to be seen who took the first team reps there.

Los Angeles Chargers Injury Report (Thursday)
Chargers starting running back Melvin Gordon didn’t practice on Wednesday while starting right tackle Joe Barksdale was limited. LA head coach Anthony Lynn said Gordon will play on Sunday. Barksdale returned to being full go on Thursday. Rookie first round pick Mike Williams is hoping to make his NFL debut this week but there’s no guarantee he will.
