The Philadelphia Eagles will put the offense in the capable hands of Mark Sanchez once again on Sunday afternoon against the Tennessee Titans at Lincoln Financial Field. Quarterback Nick Foles is the only player on this week’s final injury report that has been ruled out of action for Sunday’s game as the Eagles look to rebound with a win following a dreadful loss in Green Bay. Every other player appearing on the depth chart is officially ruled probable to play Sunday.
The Philadelphia Eagles will have a couple of starters back in the fold Monday night when they host the Carolina Panthers at Lincoln Financial Field. Starting left guard Evan Mathis (knee) has returned to the active roster and is expected to start for the Eagles. Safety Nate Allen (hamstring), after missing last week’s win against the Houston Texans, will return to his starting position this week as well.
Before the Philadelphia Eagles took flight for Houston, the team injury report offered more treats than tricks. Running back Darren Sproles (knee) and center Jason Kelce (hernia) were each officially upgraded to probable for the weekend’s road game against the Houston Texans.
As the Philadelphia Eagles head back to work this Sunday in Arizona, they will do so with the possibility of the offensive line getting a bit stronger. It is unknown whether or not running back Darren Sproles or linebacker Mychal Kendricks will be available this weekend. Both players are listed are questionable for Sunday’s afternoon game against the Arizona Cardinals out west.
The Philadelphia Eagles will be without one starting linebacker Sunday night against the New York Giants at Lincoln Financial Field. They could be without two. Mychal Kendricks will miss his fourth straight game and DeMeco Ryans is officially listed as questionable for the Sunday night NFC East battle.
As the Philadelphia Eagles prepare to bounce back with a win, there were no real surprises showing up on the weekly injury report. Linebacker Mychal Kendricks will miss his third straight game, but just about everything else on the Friday injury report was pretty common as the Eagles get ready to host the St. Louis Rams this Sunday afternoon at Lincoln Financial Field.
Linebacker Mychal Kendricks is one of two Eagles players to be ruled out for this weekend’s game. Center Jason Kelce is the other as he begins rehabbing a hernia injury that will force him to miss extended time. Kendricks is still nursing a calf injury that was suffered in the Monday night game in Indianapolis in week two. He did not practice at all this week.
With Mychael Kendricks out of commission for Sunday, the Eagles will have to hope for the best from Emmanuel Acho or Casey Matthews. Acho has not been seen on the team’s official depth chart but he may be able to get the start over Matthews.
The Eagles had to shuffle the offensive line this week following a couple of injuries on the line in the season opener against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Right tackle Lane Johnson continues to serve his suspension for another three games, including Monday night, but the Eagles also lost reserve lineman Allen Barbre (broken leg). Starting left guard Evan Mathis (knee) is out of action until at least Week 10. The concerns on the line will continue this week with Matt Tobin having to sit out of practices this week due to an ankle injury.
If Kelly is a master of preparation, which he seems to suggest he is, then the Eagles will find a way to fly by the next few weeks without much problem with a shuffled offensive line. This will be easier said than done. The Eagles managed to get by Jacksonville with some concerns on the line. With Indianapolis, Washington and San Francisco coming up, the margin for error may not be great.
The most important goal of the preseason in the National Football League is to reach the start of the regular season without any significant injuries.
Just like in the regular season Percy Harvin’s return to the field in the postseason was short lived as Harvin will not be playing against San Francisco this weekend.
The Carolina Panthers were thrilled to get the first-round bye in the NFL playoffs because it meant one less game between them and the Super Bowl. They were also very grateful for it because it allowed a number of players to fully heal up.
The New Orleans Saints have lost a few players to injured reserve over the course of the season, but right now, they’re looking extremely healthy for those still on the active roster. With all 53 players at practice and some new methods implemented by coach Sean Payton, the Saints are as ready as they’ll ever be.
Andrew Luck showed last week that he takes advantage of just about every single offensive weapon that he has at his disposal, and gets the most out of his players. If one of those key components is missing, the whole machine could come to a screeching halt.
