Wednesday Eagles Injury Report: Three Starters Limited At Practice
On Wednesday, the Philadelphia Eagles released their latest Injury Report featuring three Offensive Starters listed as Limited at practice and one defensive starter Did Not Practice
The good news is both Fletcher Cox and Jason Peters got time off from Eagles practice due to "Rest", so no new or recurring injuries to worry about.
Right tackle Lane Johnson, who was listed as limited with an ankle injury, was seen back on the field at practice Wednesday with a knee brace. Remember Johnson also had a MCL sprain, forcing him to miss the Dallas game, but Eagles head coach Doug Pederson sounded optimistic that Johnson would be ready for Sunday.
"In Lane's case, Lane is doing good," Pederson said on Wednesday. "He's doing really well. He's in a good frame of mind and the time off was really good for him to get treatment and to rest and be prepared for this week."
Two other key updates included offensive lineman Isaac Seumalo, who had his 21-Day Practice Window activated this week after being on Injured Reserve and running back Miles Sanders, who missed two games with a knee injury and was listed as limited today on the official injury report.
"As it pertains to Isaac and Miles really, number one we got to be smart with how much of a workload we give them during weeks like this," Pederson explained. "We do want to see them practice and get some snaps and some reps with the offense, but we also got to see how much of a workload, how much can the stress on their body take during the week. Because we limit guys during the week and then they go play and get a full workload on Sunday and it's a little bit different. So we just got to be able to manage that the right way and make sure that they feel comfortable, they're in the right frame of mind obviously and that's why we do the ramp up process the way we do it."
Finally, wide receiver Alshon Jeffery was listed as a full participant after missing time with a foot and calf injury. He is on track to make his 2020 season debut on Sunday.
