Doug Pederson stated on Wednesday that Joe Walker would likely be sidelined in Wednesday’s practice. The Linebacker suffered a stinger injury on the third kickoff of the game. The former Oregon Duck has been a reliable source of coverage in the absence of Jordan Hicks, but it was Najee Goode and Kamu Grugier-Hill who filled in when Walker left the game. Dannell Ellerbe remained inactive last week, so it will be interesting to see if the Eagles give the former Saint some game-time on Sunday.

Alshon Jeffery was limited in practice after a stunning game against his former team, while both Patrick Robinson and Jason Kelce were also limited participants. All three of these players are key cogs in the team’s success this year so it will certainly be worth keeping an eye on their progress throughout the week.

The good news is that Beau Allen and Trey Burton were full participants after missing Sunday’s in over Chicago. Isaac Seumalo stepped up as the third tight end and Elijah Qualls made an impact in place of Allen. Derek Barnett also appears to have sustained a minor groin injury that hasn’t affected his practice.
