The Eagles’ injury report for the week brings a mix of news.
Right tackle Lane Johnson had limited participation in Wednesday’s practice, while tight end Dallas Goedert did not practice at all.
Since the Eagles conducted a walkthrough, the injury designations are based on estimates of the player’s status in a full practice.
Johnson missed the Bills game due to groin soreness that began Sunday morning. An MRI showed no significant damage in the area where he had surgery after the Super Bowl.
Goedert missed the last two games due to a forearm fracture sustained in the Cowboys game. He expressed optimism about returning soon but will need to wait until at least Thursday to attempt practice. The Eagles chose not to place him on IR, indicating their confidence in his potential return for the Cowboys game next Sunday.
Defensive starters Fletcher Cox and Zach Cunningham, who left the game early Sunday, did not participate in Wednesday’s practice. Cox has a groin injury, while Cunningham has a hamstring injury.
The Eagles have minimal depth at off-ball linebacker, with only two healthy players on the 53-man roster. They have made some roster moves, including a practice squad call-up and hosting visits from potential signees to address the situation.
With Cox and Williams sidelined, Jordan Davis and Jalen Carter played more snaps than ever on Sunday. The good news is that Davis and Williams, despite their limited practice, are in the final phase of recovery from their respective injuries.
Tight end Grant Calcaterra (ankle) and safety Justin Evans (knee) also did not practice. Evans, who is currently on IR, has a deadline looming for the Eagles to make a decision on his status.
Several players, including A.J. Brown, Julio Jones, DeVonta Smith, and D’Andre Swift, had limited participation due to various injuries.
The Eagles are expected to have a full practice on Thursday.
