Friday Eagles Injury Report: Only One Player Ruled Out For Sunday
On Friday, the Philadelphia Eagles have ruled out only one player for this Sunday's game versus the New York Giants and one starter Did Not Practice on Friday:
With Craig James ruled out for this Sunday, the Eagles have less depth at the Cornerback position if there are any injuries that may occur. Alshon Jeffery and Miles Sanders were Full Participants at Eagles Practice for another consecutive day, paving the way for both players to return to action versus the Giants. When asked about Alshon Jeffery, Head Coach Doug Pederson was not very transparent about Jeffery heading into Sunday's game:
Another player who was a Full Participant at practice is Lane Johnson, who has been listed on the Injury Report all week with an "Ankle" issue. Johnson spoke to the media on Friday about his ankle:
The one Eagles starter who Did Not Practice on Friday is Fletcher Cox, who also was listed as DNP on Wednesday's Injury Report with the "Rest" designation. On Friday, "Illness" was listed next to Cox's DNP on the Injury Report but it appears the issue is not COVID-19 related
One player not listed on the Injury Report but has practiced this week is Isaac Seumalo, who had his 21-day Practice Window activated earlier this week, allowing him back on the practice field after a few weeks on Injured Reserve. Doug Pederson was asked about Seumalo on Friday and he was non-committal either way about Seumalo's status for this Sunday:
Eagles have until Saturday Afternoon to activate Isaac Seumalo to bring him back to the 53-Man Roster if he is to play versus the Giants this Sunday.
