With the return from what feels like a bye week and an upcoming rematch tomorrow night with the Washington Redskins, Eagles head coach Doug Pederson gave his final injury report during a rare Saturday press conference and updated the status on a couple of injured players.
With a series of limited practices this week for Ronald Darby (ankle), there is a chance Philadelphia could have him back for their upcoming game against the Redskins.
Both linebackers appear primed to play Monday, per Pederson.
"They're both doing well. Just to get a couple extra days' rest for both of them. Mychal has actually practiced all week. Jordan has been the one that we've kept out. But both of them will go today, and we'll get a better understanding where they're at. But they'll be fine for the game."
Darby appears the least likely to return, though he was able to practice most of the week, in a limited fashion. The team will need to see how he responds, and he will likely be a gameday decision.
“He's looked well," Pederson said. "It's just day by day with him. We're going to get through today's practice with him. [We] have limited his reps during practice, but he is doing well, and we'll get through today and tomorrow to make a decision for Sunday.”
