The Philadelphia Eagles issued their third and final official injury report on Friday in advance of their Week 12 game against the Seattle Seahawks.

The following players have been ruled OUT: Lane Johnson and Rudy Ford.

Johnson still hasn’t been cleared to return from the concussion he suffered in the New England Patriots game. Johnson being out doesn’t bode well for the Eagles considering Carson Wentz is 25-13 when Johnson starts and 3-9 when he doesn’t. With Johnson out, it’ll be Andre Dillard starting at right tackle. Dillard has shown promise at left tackle but playing at a new position across from Jadeveon Clowney might not go so well:

Ford suffered his abdomen injury during Wednesday’s practice. His absence means the Eagles will have three safeties active on Sunday: Malcolm Jenkins, Rodney McLeod, and Marcus Epps. Epps only played in his first game with the Eagles last Sunday. Ford being out might actually help the Eagles since he won’t be able to commit his fifth special teams penalty of the season this week.

Three players have been ruled QUESTIONABLE: Jordan Howard, Alshon Jeffery, and Nelson Agholor.

Howard still hasn’t been cleared for contact. If he doesn’t play, the Eagles will be down to Miles Sanders, Jay Ajayi, and Boston Scott at running back. Doug Pederson said the Eagles “expect to play [Ajayi] a little bit more possibly” than the zero snaps he received this past Sunday.

Jeffery was limited in practice all week. It seems like he might suit up but he’ll playing at less than 100%.

Agholor didn’t practice at all this week. It’s unusual for Eagles players to miss the entire week of practice and then play in a game. If Agholor does play, he’ll clearly be playing at less than 100%. Real great to know both Jeffery and Agholor could be even less effective than they’ve already been.

Nigel Bradham, a full participant in this week’s practices, is set to return to the starting lineup for the first time since suffering an ankle injury in Week 6. Bradham’s return means Nathan Gerry’s defensive role will decrease.

Jason Peters was a full participant on Friday after being limited on both Wednesday and Thursday. He’ll start against Seattle.

Note that Eagles cornerback Cre’Von LeBlanc has been eligible to be activated from injured reserve since Week 9.
