Eagles vs. Packers Final Injury Report: Zach Ertz and Fletcher Cox set to play, Darius Slay questionable

Week 13 game status updates.

NFL: Philadelphia Eagles at San Francisco 49ers Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

The Philadelphia Eagles issued their third and final official injury report on Friday in advance of their Week 13 game against the Green Bay Packers.

Zach Ertz and Fletcher Cox were notably not listed on the final injury report.

Ertz was limited on Wednesday and Thursday but went full go on Friday. He’s set to play in his first game since Week 6. Doug Pederson said the team could look to ease him in coming off his injury but I’d guess we’ll still see a significant role for Ertz. Can the veteran tight end rebound after a bad start to the season? Can he can get back on the same page with Carson Wentz? We’ll see.

Cox missed practice on Wednesday and Thursday before being limited on Friday. He appears to be less than 100%, though Pederson said they kept him out as a “precaution.” Cox, Javon Hargrave, Malik Jackson, and Raequan Williams (potential practice squad elevation) could be the four defensive tackles on Sunday.

Darius Slay was ruled QUESTIONABLE.

Slay was limited in practice on Thursday and Friday due to a calf injury. John Clark reports Slay is expected to play. Still, the Eagles would prefer not to see Slay banged up before a big matchup against Davante Adams.

Rudy Ford was ruled OUT.

The backup safety and special teams contributor is missing his third straight game. He’s now missed 23 out of 61 possible career games (38%). Just not the most durable guy.

GREEN BAY PACKERS INJURY REPORT (FRIDAY)

The Packers will be without starting center Corey Linsley, as expected. They’ll shift starting left guard Elgton Jenkins inside and have a rookie by the name of Jon Runyan Jr. step in for his first NFL start.

Starting edge rusher Za’Darius Smith is notably questionable to play. He was limited on Thursday and didn’t practice on Friday. Eagles would be catching a break if Green Bay’s leading sack-getter can’t play. Smith has nine and the next closest player only have 2.5. For what it’s worth, Matt LaFleur said he isn’t overly worried about Smith missing the game.
