The Eagles rushing attack will be without Wendell Smallwood for the team’s week five clash against Arizona, according to an official announcement from the team.
#AZvsPHI Inactives: DT Cox, CB Darby, WR Gibson, G Seumalo, RB Smallwood, DT Vaeao, S Watkins.

Smallwood has missed practice all week, but details of the injury are scarce with Pederson having only disclosed that it’s a “knee”. The Eagles will be relying upon a limited committee of LeGarrette Blount, Corey Clement, and Kenjon Barner.
Fletcher Cox and Ronald Darby are inactive as expected, while Destiny Vaeao joins his DT teammate for another week. It will be Beau Allen, Elijah Qualls, and Justin Hamilton filling in for the missing pass-rushing tandem.
Isaac Seumalo is benched for the second consecutive week, which means Stefen Wisniewski and Chance Warmack will be rolling as the LG effort by committee.
Surprisingly, Jaylen Watkins is also still sidelined. Luckily for the Eagles, both Corey Graham and Rodney McLeod are back to full health and will be active.
