Eagles Injury Report: Jay Ajayi returns to practice, Alshon Jeffery sits out

New, comments

Some good news for the Eagles.

NFL: Denver Broncos at Philadelphia Eagles Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

The Philadelphia Eagles released their second official injury report on Thursday in advance of their Week 4 game against the Tennessee Titans.

The good news is that Jay Ajayi returned to practice. He was a full participant, which bodes well for his playing chances this week. After practice, Ajayi told reporters he’s going to play on Sunday. That’s great to hear. Ajayi also expounded on the nature of his back injury.

Alshon Jeffery did NOT practice at all after being full go on Wednesday. It doesn’t appear to be a setback, though, because Jeffery is merely listed with an “illness” designation. I wouldn’t say I’m 100% confident he’ll play against the Titans but I’d guess he will.

Darren Sproles is still not practicing. It seems unlikely that he’ll play this week. Maybe he’ll be back for Week 5.

Rodney McLeod missed practice. He’s reportedly out for the season after having surgery on an MCL tear. The team has yet to confirm the news on McLeod’s status. McLeod’s absence means we should see more of Corey Graham and Deiondre’ Hall this week.

Corey Clement and Jordan Matthews were limited participants in Thursday’s practice after being full participants on Wednesday. Clement was first listed on the injury report with a quad issue last Friday. Seems like that’s a nagging issue for him. As for Matthews, the Eagles really need him to be healthy because if both him and Jeffery can’t play they’d be down to just Nelson Agholor and Kamar Aiken at receiver.

Michael Bennett returned to practice on Thursday after sitting out with an illness on Wednesday.

There are some minor changes to the Titans’ Thursday injury report. Nothing too significant.
