Eagles injury report: key names limited in Thursday’s practice
Ahead of their matchup against Dallas on Monday Night Football, the Eagles had some keys names appear on Thursday’s injury report:
Eagles injury updates…— Zach Berman (@ZBerm) September 23, 2021
Did not practice: Cox (illness, rest), Kelce (foot, rest), Ridgeway (illness), Taylor (calf)
Limited: Arcega-Whiteside (ankle), McLeod (knee), Sanders (chest)
Players that didn’t practice include Fletcher Cox, Jason Kelce, Hassan Ridgeway, and Davion Taylor — who seems to still be dealing with that calf injury that he sustained back in training camp. In addition, Miles Sanders, JJ Arcega-Whiteside, and Rodney McLeod were all limited participants.
McLeod is hoping to work his way back to the field from his ACL tear after missing the first two games. JJAW’s ankle injury sustained in the season opener is still lingering, while Sanders’ chest is a recent development.
Hopefully, these guys are a full-go on Monday as the Eagles will need all the help they can get to keep up with Dallas’ high-powered offense. The Eagles also lost Brandon Graham for the year and Brandon Brooks for up to eight weeks following last week’s loss to San Francisco.
Second-round rookie Landon Dickerson will get the start on Monday in place of Brooks.
