The Philadelphia Eagles issued their first official injury report on Wednesday in advance of their Week 6 game against the Baltimore Ravens.
Nine players DID NOT PARTICIPATE in practice: Darius Slay, Fletcher Cox, Lane Johnson, Duke Riley, Marcus Epps, K’Von Wallace, Hassan Ridgeway, Shaun Bradley, and Jamon Brown.
Slay is in the concussion protocol. He was doing some work on a side field on Wednesday so he might be cleared to play on Sunday.
Cox should be available for Sunday after missing practice for personal reasons. He has had to miss some snaps due to injury, though.
The Eagles might be smart to shut down Johnson for a bit. But it doesn’t look like they’ll be doing that. Howard Eskin says Johnson plans to play this week. Even if he does, he might have to leave the game early for the third week in a row.
Doug Pederson previously indicated Riley will be OK for this week’s game.
Epps was dealing with a rib injury on last week’s injury report. Guessing he’ll be able to play this week. If not, bad news for the Eagles’ safety depth and special teams unit.
Wallace’s injury is a new development. Wouldn’t be good if he’s seriously hurt with the Eagles already thin at safety.
Ridgeway, Bradley, and Brown all missed practice down to illness. Hopefully it doesn’t turn out to be COVID-19 related.
Four players were LIMITED PARTICIPANTS in practice: DeSean Jackson, Alshon Jeffery, Avonte Maddox, and Richard Rodgers.
It’s possible we could see Jackson and/or Jeffery return this week. Many are more interested in seeing the Eagles play their young receivers, though.
Maddox might be able to return this week? It’ll be interesting to see if the Eagles put him in at their starting cornerback or if they just go with Jalen Mills instead.
Dick Rod being hurt isn’t great with the Eagles already missing Dallas Goedert. If he’s out, Zach Ertz and practice squad member Jason Croom would be the only two healthy tight ends.
Jason Kelce was a FULL PARTICIPANT in practice.
Kelce is the only projected 2020 Eagles offensive line starter definitely set to play this week.
Will Parks was back on the practice field for the first time this season since the Eagles activated his 21-day window. Doug Pederson made it sound like Parks could play in this week’s game if he handles practice well.
The Eagles could look to activate Vinny Curry from injured reserve this week after waiving Casey Toohill.
