- CB Avonte Maddox (toe) – DNP (out)
- DE Brandon Graham (illness) – LP
- T Lane Johnson (groin) – FP
- DT Linval Joseph (calf) – FP
- DE Robert Quinn (back) – FP
Nickelback Avonte Maddox, who injured his toe on Christmas Eve against Dallas, will not suit up against the Giants. He hasn’t practiced all week, so it’s not all that surprising that he was ruled out.
With Maddox sidelined once again, expect a heavy dose of CJ Gardner-Johnson in the slot position once again. He played the majority of his snaps in that alignment in Maddox’s absence back in Week 18.
As for Brandon Graham, he missed Wednesday’s practice with an illness but was a full-go on Thursday. He’ll be ready to go come game time.
All-Pro RT Lane Johnson will also get the start on Saturday. He’s been dealing with a groin injury since Christmas Eve, but all signs were pointing towards Johnson being ready to go. He opted to not get surgery specifically so he could play during the postseason.
Aside from Maddox, the Eagles are completely healthy on both sides of the ball. Saturday night can’t come soon enough.
