Perhaps the biggest concern here is the status of Ellerbe, who is questionable with a hamstring injury. Although he’s one of the later additions to the team, Ellerbe’s impact has been significant on the league’s best rush defense. Without Jordan Hicks, Ellerbe has stepped up to the plate when asked, making some big plays in each of their last two games.

Not only that, but Ellerbe is a seasoned veteran and someone whose experience in this kind of situation will be invaluable for the Eagles.


Secondly, Sidney Jones is also questionable. This isn’t as worrying due to the fact that it’s unlikely Jones would see much playing time at all after being activated in week 17. But even so after leaving his debut with what appeared to be cramping, this is  something worth watching.

Aside from that, it’s a clean bill of health for the Eagles as they buckle up for the biggest game of the Doug Pederson era.
