Friday Eagles Injury Report: Three Ruled Out, Fletcher Cox Update
On Friday, the Philadelphia Eagles released their latest Injury Report which ruled out three players and one important starter is listed as Questionable
It was expected that Jalen Reagor would be unavailable to play for the next few weeks. Rudy Ford is an important contributor on Special Teams and it will be interesting to see how the Eagles fill in the void without him available.
Fletcher Cox was a Limited Participant at Eagles Practice on Friday and currently listed as Question for the team's Week Three matchup with the Cincinnati Bengals. There is still hope for Cox to play this Sunday, but without him the Eagles have two Interior Defensive Linemen who have combined for 47 sacks in their careers to fill in: Malik Jackson and Javon Hargrave.
Eagles Head Coach Doug Pederson was asked about Fletcher Cox during Friday's Media Call:
In Fletcher's case, it's been day-to-day. He's going to try to get some work in today, see where he's at physically to see if he can go.
But we'll see where he's at at the end of the day today. Tomorrow is obviously another workday and then make the decision on game day with him.
Alshon Jeffery was a Limited Participant at practice for the second day but the Eagles have ruled him Out for this Sunday. Doug Pederson spoke about Jeffery's status on Friday:
It was great to get Alshon on the practice field in some individual, the routes-on-air period that we were able to throw with him. Just beginning to incorporate him back into a full practice schedule.
I'm optimistic moving forward in the next couple weeks, possibly, but again it just depends on how he does, how he recovers today. You put a guy that's had an injury out there. You want to test it. You want to see where he's at, but it's all about today; the day after, 24 hours, how he recovers and being able to do some more with him.
Yeah, I'm excited. We've got a little bit of time. I don't want to push him.
