Miles Sanders RB
Sanders is still suffering from his knee injury and will not play this week. A huge hit to the Eagles offense, especially since Sanders was playing well as of late. Boston Scott had the game winning touchdown catch last week and should continue to be a big part of the offense.
Nate Gerry LB
Nate Gerry was placed on Injured Reserve with an ankle injury. You never like to see anyone get hurt but Gerry’s injury gives Schwartz a reason to get other linebackers on the field. Gerry has not been good.
Genard Avery DE
Avery was placed in the Injured Reserve list due to an elbow injury. Avery had been playing well in limited reps. This IR listing means he is out for at least three weeks.
Desean Jackson WR
In Jackson’s first action in a few weeks, he had his leg bent the wrong way in what seemed to be a gruesome injury. Luckily, the optics were worse than actuality. Jackson is dealing with an ankle injury but is on the Injured Reserve list.
Cre’Von LeBlanc CB
LeBlanc was limited in practice on Thursday and did not participate in practice on Friday while dealing with a quad injury. Not to worry though, Darius Slay has been elite this year.
Craig James CB
James did not participate in practice all week with a hamstring injury. He will be out this week.
Jack Driscoll T
Driscoll is still out after leaving the game early two weeks ago when he got his ankle rolled up on. Lane Johnson is playing this week so there is not too much concern.
Alshon Jeffery WR
Jeffery is staying at home on the injury report. It has been said that Jeffery got hurt at some point during practice and Doug Pederson didn’t know what happened or even when it happened. Feed Jalen Reagor.
Doug Pederson says he isn't sure if Alshon Jeffery injured his calf in practice or not. Assumes he did, doesn't know when or on what play.

Lane Johnson T
Johnson is going to try to tough it out and play through his ankle injury. If Johnson is to reaggravate his ankle, Brett Toth will get more game action
Malik Jackson DT
Jackson is out this week with a quadricep injury. Outside of his big hit on Joe Burrow, Jackson has been relatively quiet this year.
K’Von Wallace S
Wallace missed last week’s game with a neck injury. The rookie is back this week and it would be interesting to see if he can get in the mix next to Rodney McLeod.
Jason Peters T
The body guard is back. His replacement, Jordan Mailata, played well in JP’s absence so it’ll be interesting to see who gets the brunt of the snaps.
Jalen Reagor WR
Rookie receiver Jalen Reagor will be back in the lineup this Sunday night. He should see the most targets this week and will be able to justify his first round selection.
Dallas Goedert TE
Goedert is back off the IR. With Ertz out this week Goedert should be Wentz’s safety blanket.
TJ Edwards LB
Edwards is back off the IR and will be playing this week. Nate Gerry’s absence will leave snaps available to Edwards to fill. Edwards could be a more than solid linebacker given some experience.
Andy Daulton QB
The Red Rocket got rocked last week against Washington and is in concussion protocol. James Madison Univeristy product, Ben DiNucci is expected to get the start. One of DiNucci’s top targets, Michael Gallup, has called out the Eagles defensive line which I believe is the scariest part of the Eagles team. Good luck DiNucci.

Zack Martin G
Martin was working through concussion protocol and was a full participant in practice all week. Martin will be active for Sunday night’s game.
