Christmas is nearly upon us and with it comes a week 16 clash between the Eagles and the Raiders. Luckily for the Birds, a tough start to the week has started to show signs of a brighter sky. Here is Thursday’s injury report.

The eagles participated in a walkthrough today so while the report is just an estimate, it still provides an indicator into the status of players.

 

After being non-participants on Thursday, both Jalen Mills and Derek Barnett returned to practice in a limited capacity today. This is encouraging ahead of Monday’s home-stand against Oakland. The duo have several days left to fully recover, although signs point to the pair being listed as questionable tomorrow.


It’s a day of positives for the Eagles. Mychal Kendricks was a full participant after being limited on Thursday due to an a foot injury. This is big considering the diverse Raiders rushing attack and reliance on tight end Jared Cook. The more linebacker firepower they have to close down ball-carriers, the better…and Kendricks has enjoyed a bounce back like no other.

Finally, Wisniewski was still listed as limited in practice. After missing last week’s game, he would be a welcome addition to the Eagles offensive line. It will be worth keeping an eye on his progress in tomorrow’s report
