The Philadelphia Eagles have released their first injury report of the week and for the most part, it’s good news.

The team will enter week 2 relatively healthy, unlike their opponent, with no major injuries to report.

The team gave rest days to both Brandon Brooks and Zach Ertz, although the TE exited the game early on Sunday so that could be something worth watching. He finished the opener with 2 receptions for 34 yards, but the Eagles leaned on 13-personnel when running the ball. Being without Ertz for a week could be a big setback, but it would also open the doors for Jack Stoll to step up.

Marcus Epps is another player who was pulled from the season opener. He suffered a concussion and is still working through protocol.

Ryan Kerrigan missed practice due to a personal matter, while JJAW missed time due to a reported ankle injury. He played 23% of snaps on Sunday.

The Eagles looked to give rest days to all of their key veterans, allowing them to stretch and not much else. However, It’s encouraging to see Davion Taylor back to practicing at full capacity. After seeing Genard Avery struggle massively in the SAM role, Taylor’s freaky-athletic profile provides could be a huge addition to Gannon’s defense.
