Mathews, Matthews and DGB Questionable for Eagles Against Washington
Wide receivers Dorial Green-Beckham and Jordan Matthews along with running back Ryan Mathews, are among the three players the Eagles who were listed as questionable Friday for their game Sunday against Washington.
Green-Beckham took a shot last week from Vontaze Burfict and suffered an "oblique contusion" and has not practiced at all this week, meaning looks unlikely to play.
"He's still on that path," Eagles head coach Doug Pederson said on Friday. " He worked yesterday a little bit and is still sore. I want to see where he's going to be today before making a full decision on him."
If Green-Beckham can't play Sunday, the Eagles would be shallow at the wide receiver position.
"I’ll probably lean more on the tight ends," Pederson said. "Trey [Burton] has kind of taken that role the last couple weeks – Trey Burton and Zach [Ertz] and Brent [Celek]. That would be the direction we'd go."
Pederson said Ryan Mathews and Jordan Matthews both look on track to play. Ryan Mathews has been a full participant this week in practice, Jordan Matthews has practiced fully the last two days and said he will "definitely" play on Sunday.
Right tackle Halapoulivaati Vaitai will miss his third straight game with a a grade-two MCL sprain sustained in the Nov. 20 game against Seattle.
