Eagles vs. Saints Final Injury Report: Carson Wentz out, 6 players questionable

Final injury update.

NFL: Philadelphia Eagles at Tampa Bay Buccaneers Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

The Philadelphia Eagles released their third and final official injury report on Friday in advance of their Divisional Round game against the New Orleans Saints.

Carson Wentz is the only Eagles player ruled OUT for Sunday’s game. Nick Foles will start under center once again with Nate Sudfeld serving as the backup.

Six Eagles players have been ruled questionable: Sidney Jones, Mike Wallace, Jason Peters, Michael Bennett, D.J. Alexander, and Shelton Gibson.

Jones was a full participant on Friday so it looks like he’s on track to suit up this week. It’ll be interesting to see how the Eagles use him. The feeling here is there’s no need to mess with the current starting trio of Avonte Maddox, Rasul Douglas, and Cre’Von LeBlanc. It’s good to have Jones around as a backup; the alternative is Josh Hawkins being thrust into significant playing time.

Wallace might play for the Eagles for the first time since Week 2. This is the first time he’s been listed as questionable since being activated from the injured reserve list. Wallace was limited in practice all week so he might be a game-time decision. Even if he does suit up, he’ll likely be used in just a small package of plays. Adding his deep speed to the mix doesn’t hurt.

Peters was limited in practice all week after playing 100% of the snaps against the Bears. He should be able to start in New Orleans. Just a matter of how long he can last into the game.

Bennett was limited on Friday after sitting out on Wednesday and Thursday. He’s followed this pattern for over a month now; he should be able to play.

Alexander was a full participant in Friday’s practice so it looks like he’ll suit up for the first time since Week 15. Good news for special teams and linebacker depth.

Gibson is a new addition to the injury report. He seemingly tweaked his hamstring in Friday’s practice. Gibson has barely even played on special teams lately so the Eagles might just keep him inactive. He was a healthy scratch in Week 17.

Alshon Jeffery and Golden Tate avoided making the final injury report despite missing some practice time leading up to this point. Jeffery was limited in practice all week due to a rib injury. Tate was limited for two days with a knee issue but he was a full participant on Friday.
