Eagles Injury Report: DeVonta Smith and Javon Hargrave upgraded, Landon Dickerson added

News on Philadelphia’s injured players.

NFL: Philadelphia Eagles at Las Vegas Raiders Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

The Philadelphia Eagles issued their second official injury report on Thursday in advance of their Week 8 game against the Detroit Lions.

Three players DID NOT PARTICIPATE: Miles Sanders, Ryan Kerrigan, and Zech McPhearson.

Sanders is set to miss this week’s game and might miss next week’s as well. The Eagles will likely call up Jordan Howard from the practice squad and split touches among him, Kenneth Gainwell, and Boston Scott.

Kerrigan was downgraded to DNP after being limited on Wednesday. Kerrigan shouldn’t be on the roster past the trade deadline. He’s not giving this team anything. He only serves to block playing time for Tarron Jackson.

McPhearson appears to be on track to miss this week’s game. A hit to the Eagles’ cornerback depth and special teams unit.

Four players were LIMITED PARTICIPANTS: Landon Dickerson, Javon Hargrave, Anthony Harris, J.J. Arcega-Whiteside.

Dickerson is a new addition to the report. He was previously dealing with an ankle issue but now he’s listed with a hip injury. If he can’t play, the Eagles would likely look to start Nate Herbig at left guard.

Hargrave, Harris, and JJAW were upgraded to limited after not practicing on Wednesday. Seems like they all have a chance to play this weekend. The Eagles especially need Hargrave to suit up against a weak Lions interior.

Five players were FULL PARTICIPANTS: DeVonta Smith, Fletcher Cox, Lane Johnson, Jason Kelce, and Jack Anderson.

All on track to play on Sunday. Except for Anderson, who’ll likely be a healthy scratch ... unless Dickerson is out.

DETROIT LIONS INJURY REPORT (THURSDAY)

The Lions’ Thursday injury report is similar to Wednesday’s version except:

1) Jamaal Williams was added as a limited participant. Something to watch considering he’s their leading rusher and sixth in targets.

2) A.J. Parker was downgraded from limited to DNP. The Lions are so thin at cornerback. If the Eagles can’t have success passing against this team, they can’t pass on anyone.
