Final Injury Report: Eagles much healthier than the Lions


The Philadelphia Eagles issued their third and final official injury report on Friday in advance of their Week 1 game against the Detroit Lions. The Birds’ active roster is completely healthy for this game. Miles Sanders, Javon Hargrave, Derek Barnett, and Josiah Scott were all full go on Friday after being listed on the injury report this week. Not a single player was listed with a game status. Great news for Philly. The Eagles’ biggest injury development is Andre Dillard going on injured reserve earlier this week. It remains to be seen who will play left tackle if something should happen to Jordan Mailata. It sounds like Jack Driscoll might be the top backup at that spot despite his lack of experience on the left side in the NFL. Dillard to IR means the Eagles still have one open roster spot to fill. In addition to utilizing that vacancy, the Birds can temporarily elevate two practice squad players if they wish. Britain Covey and Davion Taylor might be the top candidates to get bumped up. Covey is probably the Eagles’ best punt returner option and Taylor can play special teams while providing a fifth body at linebacker. The Eagles have until 4:00 PM Eastern on Saturday to conduct any roster moves.
