5 Eagles expected to return on Sunday vs Giants
The injury woes look to be clearing up in Philadelphia. According to their injury report, several Eagles are expected to make their return on Sunday afternoon against the New York Giants.
Alshon Jeffery, Miles Sanders, Lane Johnson, Cre’Von LeBlanc, and Jack Driscoll have all been out for several weeks but are cleared for this Sunday. Isaac Seumalo is still unknown but will be decided by tomorrow if he is lifted off Injured Reserve.
Fletcher Cox, Nate Herbig, Jason Peters and Malik Jackson were also on the injury list but are expected to be active as well. Cox was dealing with an illness and Jason Peters was off for rest.
If Seumalo returns, that will leave just Nate Gerry, Desean Jackson, and Zach Ertz as the only key players out with injury that could return this season. Ertz and Gerry are expected back around Week 12.
Miles Sanders has been out with a knee injury since week 6 while Alshon Jeffery is set to play for the first time in almost a year. Alshon was dealing with a calf injury after returning from his Lisfranc injury. Lane Johnson hopefully has recovered a bit from his ankle and knee issues and the same goes for his backup Jack Driscoll who has missed a few weeks.
Craig James is currently the only active player listed as being out with a shoulder injury. Marcus Epps will likely be out after testing positive for COVID-19 during the bye week. At just the right time, the Eagles are getting healthy.
