Eagles’ Jason Peters Listed as Questionable for Miami Game
Eagles left tackle Jason Peters is listed as questionable due to a back injury, but Eagles reporter Josh Paunil from Phillymag.com joined me on the Sports Bash and sounded somewhat confident that he'll be available for Sunday's home game with the Dolphins.
"The feeling over the last few of days at the NovaCare Complex is that it's more likely that he plays than doesn't play," Paunil stated. "Unless there is some sort of set-back today or tomorrow before the game Sunday - it's leaning towards him being in the line-up."
Peters missed last week's game against the Cowboys with a pinched nerve in his back that was cause pain to his quad. If Peters isn't able to play Sunday, Lane Johnson would play left tackle again with Dennis Kelly getting his second straight start at right tackle
Agholor and Ryans expected to play
Wide receiver Nelson Agholor and linebacker DeMeco Ryans, both missed last week's game but are expected to return for the game on Sunday, both are listed as probable.
Agholor missed the last two weeks with an ankle injury, Ryans injured his hamstring in the Carolina game and missed last's week's Dallas game. Agholor practiced all week while Ryans was listed as a limited participant on Wednesday, but he was a full participant both Thursday and Friday - a good sign that he should play.
Murray, Mathews probable
Both Eagles running backs, DeMarco Murray and Ryan Mathews were on the team's injury report with a groin injury, both are listed as probable for the game. Linebacker Kiko Alonso is also listed as probable and has appeared all week to be fine after returning last week for the Dallas game. Tight end Trey Burton, wide out Riley Cooper and safety Malcolm Jenkins (concussion) are all listed as probable.
G Josh Andrews (concussion) and S Jerome Couplin (shoulder) are both out for the game.
