The Philadelphia Eagles issued their first official injury report on Monday in advance of their Week 6 Thursday Night Football game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Note that this report is merely an estimation because the Eagles held a walkthrough instead of a real practice.
Four players were listed under DID NOT PARTICIPATE: Lane Johnson, Dallas Goedert, Derek Barnett, and Jason Kelce.
It seems like Johnson is on track to miss his third consecutive game due to a “personal matter.” Nick Sirianni said the Eagles are “hopeful” he’ll return this season.
Goedert is dealing with an illness. Assuming it’s not COVID-related, he should be able to play on Thursday night.
Barnett got banged up in Week 5 but was able to finish the game. The Eagles might be managing him to help get him to game night.
Kelce has been getting veteran rest days at the start of each week. He’s fine.
One player was listed under LIMITED PARTICIPATION: Jordan Mailata.
Mailata will continue to start at right tackle with Johnson out. He gave up two sacks to Haason Reddick while playing injured and out of position in Carolina.
One player was listed under FULL PARTICIPATION: Landon Dickerson.
Dickerson was unable to finish Sunday’s game after tweaking his ankle. Sirianni said the starting left guard will be good to go for Thursday and the injury report reflects as much.
The Eagles will issue a second injury report on Tuesday before their third and final injury report is published on Wednesday.
