Week 12 NFL injury news.

The Philadelphia Eagles released their third and final official injury report on Friday in advance of their Week 12 game against the New York Giants.

It’s very possible the Eagles might be without their top five cornerbacks on Sunday. Ronald Darby is on injured reserve and the following players have been ruled out: Jalen MIlls, Avonte Maddox, and Sidney Jones. So that’s four of the top five who will definitely miss the game.

It seems like there’s some level of hope that Rasul Douglas might play; he’s ruled questionable to play. But Douglas didn’t participate in practice all week so that might be a generous designation. Even if he does play, he might not be able to make it through the game.

It’s looking like the Eagles will be down to just Chandon Sullivan, De’Vante Bausby, and Cre’Von LeBlanc against the Giants. Yikes. The Eagles have been so thin at corner in practice that they’ve actually been using wide receivers for that position. Double yikes. Jim Schwartz’s secondary will be mightily tested by the likes of Odell Beckham Jr. and Sterling Shepard. On paper, Eli Manning seems poised for a big day.

As is the Eagles didn’t have enough injuries on defense, starting linebacker Jordan Hicks will also be out. Nigel Bradham will likely take his place at middle linebacker. We should also see more playing time for Kamu Grugier-Hill and Nathan Gerry.

Darren Sproles is still out, as expected. The Eagles will once again enter a game with just Josh Adams, Corey Clement, and Wendell Smallwood at running back. Adams figures to receive a bulk of the team’s backfield touches.

Timmy Jernigan is on track to make his 2018 debut on Sunday after fully participating in practice all week.

NEW YORK GIANTS INJURY REPORT (FRIDAY)

Defensive lineman Kerry Wynn is the only player listed on the Giants’ injury report. He’s out due to a concussion. Wynn ranks second in snaps played and third in sacks on New York this season. The Giants already have a poor pass rush to begin with so missing Wynn isn’t ideal for them.
