The Philadelphia Eagles issued their second official injury report on Friday in advance of their Week 16 Christmas game against the New York Giants.

Friday’s injury report was identical to Thursday’s injury report.

Five players were listed under DID NOT PARTICIPATE: DeVonta Smith, Darius Slay, Landon Dickerson, Zach Cunningham, and Nicholas Morrow.

Slay and Dickerson are definitely out.

Smith, Cunningham, and Morrow are not trending in the right direction. We’ll see how they’re listed on Saturday’s final injury report.

Two players were listed under FULL PARTICIPATION: Cam Jurgens and Avonte Maddox.

Jurgens will return at right guard. Sua Opeta took first-team left guard reps with Dickerson not practicing.

Maddox might be able to play this week? The Eagles must open up a roster spot and activate him from injured reserve if they want him to suit up.

NEW YORK GIANTS INJURY REPORT (FRIDAY)

The big news is that Dexter Lawrence did not practice once again. Looks like the Giants are going to be without their best player.

Making matters worse, they’re also projected to be without DT3 Rakeem Nunez-Roches. And DT2 A’Shawn Robinson has been limited in practice due to a back issue.

In other news, the Giants signed veteran kicker Mason Crosby to play against the Eagles. He’s their fourth kicker option this season with the other three getting hurt (Cade York was just placed on IR). The 39-year-old made 25 of his 29 field goal attempts last season (86.2%). Crosby struggled from deep, making just one of his four kicks from 50 yards or longer.
