The following Eagles players WILL NOT PLAY: A.J. Brown, Sydney Brown, Reed Blankenship, Rashaad Penny, Moro Ojomo, Tyler Steen, and Tanner McKee.
Brown and Brown were ruled out on Saturday’s final injury report. The Eagles are playing their first game without A.J. since trading for him. We’ll see if the remaining options can pick up the slack.
Blankenship was ruled questionable to play and described as a game-time decision. He was unable to fully go through pregame warmups. With Blankenship out, the Eagles could look to use nickel cornerback Avonte Maddox at safety next to Kevin Byard. The team also temporarily elevated Tristin McCollum and Mekhi Garner from the practice squad for more depth on the back end.
Penny, Ojomo, and Steen are healthy scratches.
Under the NFL’s emergency third quarterback rule, McKee is only permitted to play if both Jalen Hurts AND Marcus Mariota leave the game due to injury.
