The Philadelphia Eagles released their third and final official injury report on Friday in advance of the NFC Championship Game against the Minnesota Vikings.

Dannell Ellerbe is the only player listed by the Eagles. He’s questionable to play due to a hamstring injury.

Ellerbe didn’t practice on Wednesday and was limited on Thursday and Friday. I would imagine he plays but it’s not written in stone.

Sidney Jones was a full participant on Friday. It remains to be seen if he’ll be a healthy scratch or not this weekend.

Kamu Grugier-Hill, who was limited on Thursday, was full go on Friday. Good to see.

Note that the Eagles once again practiced at Lincoln Financial Field, which has recently been resodded.

The Vikings ruled out backup defensive tackle Shamar Stephen, who hasn’t been able to practice all week. Stephen played 38.5% of Minnesota’s defensive snaps in 2017 so this absence hurts the Vikings’ defensive line rotation.

The Vikings also ruled three players questionable: leading receiver Adam Thielen, starting safety Andrew Sendejo, and slot cornerback Mackensie Alexander. Thielen was limited on Friday and is expected to play, though he might not be 100%. Sendejo hasn’t officially cleared the NFL’s mandatory concussion protocol as of this publish time but Mike Zimmer said he expects the safety to be ready. After being limited on Wednesday and Thursday, Alexander did not practice on Friday. That might not bode well for his playing chances. We could see a lot of 39-year-old Terrance Newman matched up on Nelson Agholor in the slot.
