The Philadelphia Eagles released their first official injury report on Wednesday in advance of their Week 17 game against the Washington Redskins. Note that this injury report is an estimation because the Eagles only held a walk-through.
Six players were listed as non-participants: Carson Wentz, Jason Peters, Michael Bennett, Sidney Jones, Isaac Seumalo, and Corey Graham.
Wentz is out for this week’s game. Nick Foles is starting once again.
Peters is expected to start at left tackle this week, per Doug Pederson. We’ll see how long he lasts into the game.
Bennett hasn’t practiced much in the past month but he hasn’t missed a game during that time, so he’ll probably be fine for Sunday.
Jones isn’t expected to play this week. Avonte Maddox and Rasul Douglas could continue to start on the outside with Cre’Von LeBlanc playing in the slot. Speaking of LeBlanc, love how he’s not even listed on the injury report a couple days after suffering a compound fracture. Football!
Seumalo has been described as “truly day-to-day.” Not practicing on Wednesday probably doesn’t bode well for him, though.
Graham is listed with an illness. He should be fine.
Four players were listed as limited participants: Fletcher Cox, Jason Kelce, Mike Wallace, and D.J. Alexander.
Cox will likely be fine for Sunday. The Eagles are taking it easy on him early in the week.
Kelce played 100% of the Eagles’ offensive snaps in Week 16 so I’d assume he’ll be fine for Washington.
Wallace, who was activated from the injured reserve list on Monday afternoon, told reporters he’s unsure if he’ll be able to play on Sunday. Thursday will mark his first “real” practice since injuring his leg. Wallace might not be able to play until the Eagles’ wild card game, assuming they even make the playoffs.
Alexander missed the Eagles’ Week 16 game due to his hamstring injury. Perhaps he’ll be able to return in Week 17.
Timmy Jernigan isn’t listed on the injury report in any capacity. That could be a sign he’ll see an increased workload in Week 17. Jernigan only played 26% of Philly’s snaps against the Texans.
Jordan Hicks also isn’t listed on the injury report at all after making his return in Week 16. Good to see.
We’ll find out more about the Eagles’ injury situation when they release their second injury report of the week on Thursday.
