The following seven Eagles players have been ruled INACTIVE: Jordan Howard, Nelson Agholor, Alshon Jeffery, Lane Johnson, Nate Sudfeld, Shareef Miller, and Nate Herbig.
Howard was ruled questionable on the final injury report after being limited in practice all week but it was reported earlier that the Eagles’ leading rusher was expected to miss today’s game. With Howard out, the Eagles will split touches between Miles Sanders, Jay Ajayi, and Boston Scott. Sanders figures to receive the bulk of the workload with Ajayi getting some action in his first game played since October 2018.
Agholor was also ruled questionable prior to a report that indicated he was expected to miss Sunday’s game. Agholor is missing his first game since being benched in 2016.
Adam Schefter originally reported Jeffery, ruled questionable, was expected to play but then he said Jeffery’s status was looking “iffy” an hour before inactives were announced.
With Agholor and Jeffery out, the following four wide receivers are active for the Eagles: Jordan Matthews, JJ Arcega-Whiteside, Mack Hollins, and Greg Ward. Yikes! Not an ideal situation for Carson Wentz. Then again, maybe Jeffery and Agholor being out will be a case of addition by subtraction? Here’s hoping the Eagles get JJAW and Ward involved because we’ve already seen plenty of ineffectiveness from JMatt and Hollins.
Johnson was ruled out on Friday’s injury report. Eagles first-round rookie Andre Dillard is making his first career start at right tackle. It’ll be interesting to see how he holds up there.
Sudfeld, Miller, and Herbig are all healthy scratches once again. Herbig hasn’t been active for a single game this season with only five more regular season matchups to go.
Nigel Bradham is ACTIVE for the first time since getting hurt in Week 6. He’ll replace Nathan Gerry as the Eagles’ starting middle linebacker.
