Eagles Right Guard Brandon Brooks Ready for Week 1 vs. Redskins
Philadelphia Eagles starting right guard Brandon Brooks will play in Sunday’s Week 1 contest after spending the offseason recovering from a torn Achilles he suffered in last year's playoffs. He was not listed on the Eagles’ injury report on Friday.
Fletcher Cox, Ronald Darby, Derek Barnett, and Nigel Bradham, all players who are returning from injuries and didn't play in the preseason were also absent from the injury report.
Pederson said all are expected to suit up for tomorrow's season opener against the Redskins, and didn't seem to concerned about their availability.
"Not really," Pederson said. "The guys that have worked all week have worked hard. Even the new guys, the new additions that have practiced this week have looked well."
"We'll come out with another report today and go from there, but I feel comfortable with the guys that have been working."
Backing up Brooks on the depth chart is Halapoulivaati Vaitai, who got most of the first-team reps this training camp and preseason while Brooks was working his way back into game shape.
Out for the game on Sunday are: LB Kamu Grugier-Hill (knee), T Jordan Mailata (back), QB Nate Sudfeld (left wrist)
On the Redskins side of things, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport has reported that Jordan Reed isn't expected to suit up Sunday against the Eagles with a concussion. Starting cornerback Fabian Moreau has also been ruled out for Week 1 with an ankle injury.
Check back tomorrow morning for the inactive lists for both teams.
