Eagles-Cowboys Injury Report: Jackson, Peters Among Eagles to Miss Week 7
The Philadelphia Eagles and Dallas Cowboys both have several high-profile players listed on the weeks final injury report.
Two of the biggest names on that list for the Eagles are wide receiver DeSean Jackson and starting right tackle Jason Peters. Jackson (abdomen) has not played since the first quarter of Week 2 and Peters (knee) was injured in last week's loss in Minnesota, neither will play in the game on Sunday night in Dallas.
In Peters place, will be rookie first-round pick Andre Dillard, who struggled when replacing Peters last week. He'll make his first NFL start on the road in Dallas.
"Andre is going to be fine," Eagles head coach Doug Pederson said. "He's looking forward to the opportunity if he gets a chance to start. He had a really good test last week with a great edge rusher in [Vikings DE Everson] Griffen over there in Minnesota."
Linebacker Nigel Bradham is also out for the game.
Meanwhile, Eagles cornerback Ronald Darby, who was limited in practice all this week is expected to play. Jalen Mills, who hasn't played since suffering a foot injury in Oct. of 2018, is expected to return and start opposite Darby.
“I think so. Yeah, I think so. I think those two would just kind of assume their roles moving forward, yeah.”
Here is the latest injury report for both teams:
As for Dallas, the injury riddled Cowboys are much healthier today than it appeared when the week started. They had a laundry list of players questionable including, La'El Collins (knee), Amari Cooper (ankle/quad), Byron Jones (hamstring), Zack Martin (ankle/back) and Tyron Smith (ankle), all seem healthy enough to play Sunday.
