The Eagles have released their second injury report of the week ahead of a week 13 clash with the Packers. Here’s everything you need to know:

Fletcher Cox has missed practice for the second consecutive day with a neck injury, which is a little concerning. Cox is one of the most durable defensive linemen in the NFL though, having missed just three games in his illustrious nine-year career. This is unlike previous weeks where he has missed practice in order to stay fresh for Sunday and there’s probably a chance he does miss time this week.

In the event he does, Malik Jackson and Javon Hargrave would hold the fort but with Hassan Ridgeway on IR, they may well call up Treyvon Hester or UDFA Raequan WIlliams from the practice squad.

Safety Rudy Ford has missed three consecutive games with a hammy injury but could be trending in the right direction, which is pretty big considering the team confusingly cut Will Parks yesterday.

TE Zach Ertz was activated off of IR this past week so his ‘limited’ status was almost expected. Richard Rodgers will be waiting in the wings if needed.

T.J Edwards and Darius Slay being limited is a little concerning. Edwards appears on the list for a second day after playing in 68 snaps on Monday night.

CB Darius Slay is a new addition on the injury report, showing up with a calf injury. This comes after D.K Metcalf put up 177 yards against him on Monday, but Slay stayed in his hip-pocket for the majority of the night. He’ll be a name to keep an eye on knowing that Devante Adams lies around the corner.

The Eagles will release their final injury report tomorrow ahead of a game against Green Bay that could decide several fates.
