The Philadelphia Eagles released their second official injury report on Thursday in advance of their Week 8 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
As expected, Carson Wentz returned as a full participant on Thursday after being limited on Wednesday.
Five players missed practice: Derek Barnett, Nathan Gerry, Corey Graham, Sidney Jones, and Darren Sproles. The Eagles specifically noted that Gerry, Jones, and Sproles won’t be traveling to London, so they’re unsurprisingly out for Sunday. Barnett obviously won’t be playing since Doug Pederson confirmed he’s out for the year. Graham WILL be traveling, so he might have an outside chance to play, though missing two days of practice doesn’t bode well for him.
Lane Johnson, Jason Peters, Haloti Ngata, and D.J. Alexander were limited for the second day in a row. Perhaps Ngata and Alexander will be back on the field this week after missing the last couple games. The Eagles could certainly use Ngata’s presence on a banged up defensive line.
Wendell Smallwood and Rasul Douglas were full participants in Thursday’s practice after missing Wednesday’s session due to personal reasons.

JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS INJURY REPORT (THURSDAY)
The Eagles aren’t the only team banged up heading into this game.
Jaguars starting cornerback A.J. Bouye did not practice on Thursday after tweaking his calf in Wednesday’s practice. That’s not a good sign for his availability this weekend. Missing Bouye would be inconvenient for a Jacksonville secondary that’s already expected to be without their top two nickel cornerbacks: D.J. Hayden and Tyler Patmon. UPDATE: Bouye and Patmon will not travel to London. They’re out for Sunday’s game.
Starting defensive tackle Marcell Dareus was added to the injury report on Thursday with an illness. He did not practice.
Pass rusher Dante Fowler Jr. was also added to the injury report with a groin issue. He was limited in practice.
Starting tight end TE James O’Shaughnessy was downgraded to not practicing after being limited on Wednesday. Jacksonville already has their top two tight ends — Austin Seferian-Jekins and Niles Paul — on injured reserve.
Starting defensive end Calais Campbell continues to be limited in practice. I’d imagine he plays on Sunday.
Starting offensive linemen Brandon Linder, Andrew Norwell, and Jeremy Parnell were upgraded to full participants after previously being limited.
The Jaguars placed backup linebacker Donald Payne on injured reserve.
