Eagles Wednesday Practice Report: DeMarco Murray Limited, Alonso and Kendricks DNP
DeMarco Murray is listed on the Eagles' injury report as a limited participant on Wednesday, Murray left practice early with a hamstring injury, while Murray won't talk to the media, ESPN's Adam Caplan reports Murray's hamstring injury isn't serious.
Murray has been injury prone in the past and hamstring problems have a tendency to linger, but it's good news to hear the injury isn't considered serious, but Murray should be considered questionable for the Jets game on Sunday. There should be more clarity on Murray after the Eagles practice Thursday and we'll have more on the Sports Bash.
While the Eagles had been very healthy the first two weeks of the season, LB Kiko Alonso (knee), DE Taylor Hart (shoulder), LB Mychal Kendricks (hamstring) and DE Cedric Thornton (hand) all did not practice today and all could miss the Jets game on Sunday.
The interesting news is on Alonso. Yesterday, Eagles defensive coordinator Billy Davis said that Alonso was going to miss the game, but on Wednesday, Kelly wouldn't rule the linebacker out just yet.
"He has a sprained knee, so we're evaluating him this week in terms of what he can do and can't do, Kelly said. "I just know he's got a sprained knee. I don't know if he'll be out this week."
Wide receiver Seyi Ajirotutu, who was the only player who missed the Dallas game, is not listed on the report. Tight end Trey Burton (shoulder) and defensive end Fletcher Cox (groin) are both listed as a full participants with Ajirotutu.
