The additions to the list several include key starters on both sides of the ball.

The Eagles’ top two healthy running backs — Jordan Howard and Boston Scott — have been placed on the list. With Miles Sanders injured, that leaves rookie Kenneth Gainwell as the lone healthy back.

But under the NFL’s revised COVID rules, the 12 Eagles may still be available for Saturday night’s game against the Cowboys.

Either way, head coach Nick Sirianni has not said whether the Eagles will rest their starters in the season finale.
