The Philadelphia Eagles issued their second official injury report on Thursday in advance of their Week 15 game against the Arizona Cardinals.

Two players DID NOT PRACTICE: Jack Driscoll and Avonte Maddox.

Driscoll figures to be placed on injured reserve soon since he’s out for the season. Matt Pryor is set to start at right tackle in his absence.

Maddox might also be an IR candidate. At the very least, he’s not playing this weekend.

Six players were LIMITED: Darius Slay, Malik Jackson, T.J. Edwards, Shaun Bradley, Michael Jacquet, and Grayland Arnold.

Good sign to see Slay upgraded to limited after missing practice on Wednesday. Seems like he might be able to clear the concussion protocol in time for Sunday’s game. The Eagles certainly need him to play given all their secondary injuries.

Jackson was limited for the second day in a row. He might be further along than Slay in the concussion protocol. Seems like he should be ready for Sunday if things continue to progress well.

Edwards was limited for the second day in a row. He might be able to return after missing Week 14.

Bradley is a new addition to the injury report. He got banged up on Sunday but wasn’t listed on Wednesday.

Jacquet was limited for the second day in a row. He might be able to return and give the Eagles some more depth at cornerback.

Arnold was upgraded to limited after sitting out on Wednesday. He’s heading into the right direction and might be able to play.

Three players were listed as FULL: Fletcher Cox, Josh Sweat, and Rudy Ford.

Cox was just resting on Wednesday so he’ll be good to go.

Sweat was expected to be fine for this week. Being upgraded from limited to full confirms that expectation.

Ford is set to play in his first game since Week 10. His potential return helps the Eagles’ safety depth and special teams unit. Back for a #RevengeGame against his former Cards!

The Cardinals were missing several key starters on Wednesday. That was the case again on Thursday with starting nose tackle Jordan Phillips, starting left guard Justin Pugh, starting nickel cornerback Jalen Thompson, and kicker Zane Gonzalez all sitting out. It looks like those guys — in addition to Chase Edmonds — could be out or playing well below 100% health.

On the positive side for Arizona, starting cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick and starting linebacker De’Vondre Campbell were upgraded to limited.

Starting right tackle Kelvin Beachum was limited for the second day in a row.
