Two Eagles players were limited in practice: linebackers Dannell Ellerbe and Kamu Grugier-Hill.
Ellerbe seems to be following the pattern that took place for him last week. If that’s the case, he should be ready to play at middle linebacker this Sunday.
Grugier-Hill is a new addition to the injury report. Seems like he may have gotten banged up in practice. Hopefully it’s nothing serious since the Eagles can’t afford to lose one of their best special teams players. Who else would be able to handle kickoffs if Jake Elliott went down?
Sidney Jones was a full participant in practice for the second day in a row. He’s on pace to be available for Sunday’s game. It’s just a matter of whether the Eagles will keep him on the active game day roster or not.
Everyone else was full go.
PHILADELPHIA EAGLES INJURY REPORT (THURSDAY)
LB Dannell Ellerbe (hamstring)
LB Kamu Grugier-Hill (ankle)
CB Sidney Jones (hamstring)
MINNESOTA VIKINGS INJURY REPORT (THURSDAY)
Vikings leading receiver Adam Thielen was upgraded to a limited participant in practice on Thursday after sitting out entirely on Wednesday. Can’t imagine he’ll miss this week’s game.
Starting safety Andrew Sendejo was limited for the second day in a row. He still needs to pass through the NFL’s mandatory concussion protocol before he can play. Minnesota seems optimistic about his chances.
Slot cornerback Mackensie Alexander was limited for the second day in a row. He played 50% of the Vikings’ defensive snaps in the Divisional Round.
Backup defensive tackle Shamar Stephen missed practice yet again. Seems like he won’t play on Sunday, which hurts the Vikings’ defensive tackle depth.
Michael Floyd was a new addition to the injury report due to illness. He sat out.
