There is still a chance Cole might play, but every other player listed on the Eagles injury report should be available to play, except for quarterback Nick Foles.
The Philadelphia Eagles will look to give all fans tuning in another reason to be thankful. While fans are stuffing themselves with turkey and mashed potatoes, or perhaps another slice of pumpkin pie (or two or three), the Eagles will be taking on the NFC East rival Dallas Cowboys.
