The Philadelphia Eagles issued their first official injury report on Wednesday in advance of their Week 15 game against the Washington Redskins.

Note that today’s report is only an estimation. The team didn’t hold a typical practice due to playing less than 48 hours ago on Monday night.

Four players DID NOT PARTICIPATE: starting wide receivers Alshon Jeffery and Nelson Agholor, starting right tackle Lane Johnson, and starting defensive end Derek Barnett.

Jeffery is reportedly out for the season so it’s only a matter of time until the Eagles officially place him on injured reserve.

Agholor told reporters he originally injured his knee against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 6 before it worsened in Week 11 against the New England Patriots. It doesn’t seem like the Eagles can really count on him playing this week. With both Jeffery and Agholor potentially out, the team might should probably promote two of their three practice squad receivers.

Johnson was described as “week-to-week” by Doug Pederson so he’s not going to be playing on Sunday. Johnson’s pretty tough so he might find a way to be active for Week 16 ... but we’ll see. Halapoulivaati Vaitai will start in Johnson’s place.

Barnett missed Week 14 after failing to practice all of last week and it looks like he could miss this week’s game as well. More playing time for Vinny Curry, Josh Sweat, and Daeshon Hall.

Two players were LIMITED PARTICIPANTS: starting running back Jordan Howard and starting cornerback Jalen Mills.

As far as we know, Howard still hasn’t been cleared for contact. Until we hear otherwise, one can only assume he’s still out. We won’t hear from Pederson again until Friday morning.

Mills seems on track to play this week despite injuring his elbow. Pederson described him as “day-to-day” but also said Mills should be okay to play.

Kamu Grugier-Hill was a FULL PARTICIPANT after missing Monday’s game due to a concussion. The starting linebacker is on track to return this weekend.

Miles Sanders and JJ Arcega-Whiteside are not listed on the injury report after briefly dealing with some issues in the New York Giants game. Good to see.

We’ll learn more abut the team’s injury situation when they put out their second injury report on Thursday afternoon.

Washington placed Derrius Guice back on injured reserve. He was averaging 5.8 yards per carry before getting hurt again so that’s a significant loss.

Starting edge rusher Ryan Kerrigan and starting cornerback Quinton Dunbar both missed Wednesday’s practice. Kerrigan was already ruled out, which is really fortunate considering he’s an Eagles killer and he’d be going up against Big V.

Seven Washington players were limited: five full-time starters and two role players. Guessing the team is just being cautious with them early in the week.

Starting quarterback Dwayne Haskins was a full participant despite tweaking his ankle in Week 14. Haskins was already struggling while healthy so this can’t possibly help him.
