The Philadelphia Eagles released their first official injury report on Monday in advance of their Week 6 Thursday Night Football game against the New York Giants.
The Eagles held a walk-through instead of a standard practice, so note that today’s injury report is an estimation.
The good news is that Corey Clement was listed as a full participant. Clement seemed to be moving well during warmups prior to the Eagles vs. Vikings game on Sunday. He was activated for the game but he did not play. It seems like he might’ve been good to go in an emergency situation. It’d be great to get Clement back on the field this week, especially with Jay Ajayi’s season now over.
Four Eagles players were listed as limited participants: Jason Peters, Lane Johnson, Sidney Jones, and D.J. Alexander. Jones had to leave Sunday’s game early after spraining his ankle. I’d imagine these players have a good shot to play on Thursday. They’re just not going to be playing at 100%.
Five players did not participate: Derek Barnett, Darren Sproles, Nathan Gerry, Corey Graham, and Haloti Ngata. Other than maybe Gerry, it doesn’t seem like we’ll see these guys suit up against the Giants. The Eagles’ recent addition of defensive tackle T.Y. McGill specifically doesn’t bode well for Ngata.
The Eagles will hold their first real practice ahead of the Giants game tomorrow on Tuesday.

Giants kicker Aldrick Rosas and tight end Rhett Ellison did not practice. The extent of those injuries is unknown.
Evan Engram was limited after missing the last two games with an MCL sprain. The Giants would be without their top two tight ends if both Engram and Ellison can’t play.
Pass rusher Olivier Vernon was limited and might be able to make his season debut this week.
