The Philadelphia Eagles and Green Bay Packers both issued their final injury reports for Thursday Night Football on Wednesday but now we have some more clarity on a couple players ruled “questionable” for this game.
NFL Network’s Stacey Dales reports Eagles running back Corey Clement is “expected to be healthy enough to play tonight.” Clement missed the Eagles’ Week 3 game with a shoulder injury he suffered back in Week 2.
Clement’s return doesn’t figure to be a huge deal for Philly since he failed to log a single offensive touch before getting hurt. He could resume his role as the Eagles’ kick returner, though. Miles Sanders has been the Eagles’ kick returner since Clement got hurt.
On the Packers’ side, starting edge rusher Za’Darius Smith is also reportedly expected to play tonight. Smith suffered a knee injury during practice this week and was limited on Tuesday and Wednesday before being ruled questionable to suit up. Smith ranks second on Green Bay in sacks this season with three in as many games. Jason Peters probably won’t mind if Smith is playing at less than 100%.
The Eagles and Packers will officially announce their inactives for tonight’s game around 6:50 PM Eastern. Stay tuned to Bleeding Green Nation for more game coverage, of course.
