Injury Report: Eagles’ roster remains healthy during Saturday’s practice
The Philadelphia Eagles have a few extra days of practice this week after their game tomorrow against the Washington Football Team was moved to Tuesday night at 7PM. This morning, the team held a walkthrough with another day of meetings and walkthroughs scheduled for tomorrow.
Today, we got an update from the Eagles in the form of an estimated injury report. Everyone listed on the tweet was a full participant in practice today, which means things are certainly looking good ahead of Tuesday’s matchup.
The most notable name on the list today is obviously Jalen Hurts. Over the past week, Hurts was limited in practice and appears to be trending in the right direction, as he was a full participant both yesterday and today.
Eagles injury report for December 18th:
As of yesterday, Nick Sirianni announced that Jordan Howard and Miles Sanders would both be active this week. Sirianni also said that Jalen Hurts was still questionable, but that came before their game was postponed and could be changed again before Tuesday.
Since the Eagles have a shortened week, if Hurts is not 100%, there’s a possibility that Sirianni will choose to rest Hurts this week ahead of the New York Giants next Sunday.
Washington brought four of their defensive linemen, including Jonathan Allen and Montez Sweat, off the COVID-19/Reserve list this morning. Still, many starters remain on the list, including starting quarterback Taylor Heinicke.
More players are expected to return over the next few days, which is why the game was moved until Tuesday, but even with an extra two days I don’t think it’s likely that Heinicke will be back in time after testing positive COVID-19 late last week.
