1/4 of Eagles 53 man roster on Injury Report
The Eagles are back right where they were at the end of the 2019 season. 14 players were on the Eagles Thursday Injury Report. 8 players were fully inactive with 3 limited, and 3 fully practicing. The main concern today was only one Wide Receiver from the 53 man roster was active in Greg Ward. JJ Arcega-Whiteside, Desean Jackson, John Hightower, and Alshon Jeffrey did not participate today. Jalen Reagor is also on IR.
Desean Jackson is not expected to play Sunday according to Adam Caplan, so you will need Hightower and JJAW to play. If not, back to the practice squad we go.
Jason Peters was also inactive while other tackle Lane Johnson was limited. Avonte Maddox was the other major inactive player. Things are not going the Eagles way in 2020, currently sitting at 0-2-1 with the San Francisco 49ers coming up on Sunday.
A huge question lies in who the Eagles will play at Receiver this Sunday. Wentz threw today with practice squad guys such as Deontay Burnett, Marcus Green, and Travis Fulgham. Dallas Goedert also just went to the IR with a small fracture in his ankle. The 49ers are also dealing with numerous injuries missing Jimmy Garppolo, Nick Bosa, and Richard Sherman to name a few.
In a now deleted video, Doug Pederson and Howie Roseman were also spotted having a very animated discussion at practice today with heat being on Roseman heavily of recent for his drafting failures among many other things. As it has been said, “Bad Things Happen in Philadelphia”
