The Philadelphia Eagles officially released their first injury report ahead of their NFL Week 1 game against the Washington Redskins.
Prior to practice on Wednesday, Doug Pederson said everyone would be a full participant. He wasn’t joking. As far as the 53-man roster goes, the Eagles are completely healthy heading into their game against Washington. That’s great news.
The only Eagles player currently not practicing is Sidney Jones. The rookie cornerback doesn’t count on the injury report, though, since he’s on the reserve/non-football injury list and not the 53. As a result, Jones can return to the field no sooner than Week 7.
As for Washington, only two players were listed as less than full participants: starting center Spencer Long and 2017 second-round pick Ryan Anderson.
Washington’s losses go beyond the injury report, however. Starting defensive end Trent Murphy suffered a season-ending injury this offseason. Even if he didn’t get hurt, he was scheduled to miss the first four weeks due to suspension. In addition to Murphy, starting nose tackle Phil Taylor is out for the season due to a quad tear. Washington starting safety Su’a Cravens was recently placed on the reserve/left squad list after contemplating retirement. He’ll also be out Sunday.
