The Eagles have released their first injury report of the week. Here is everything you need to know:

Jordan Mailata was the only player to miss today’s walkthrough practice which doesn’t bode well for a return this week. Andre Dillard started in the Aussie’s place on Monday and will do so again if Mailata is unable to fully recover from his knee sprain in time.

The big takeaway here is that Landon Dickerson’s knee is okay. The rookie guard was forced into action on Monday and took a bit of a knock during the affair. Having just recovered from a torn ACL, fans were naturally concerned but the good news is that all appears to be okay.

Nick Sirianni didn’t want to reveal whether or not the Alabama product would play at LG or RG, but it would make sense to play him on the left and Herbig on the right. Brandon Brooks is nursing an injury of his own and Isaac Seumalo will miss the remainder of the year.

The injury situation at Safety isn’t getting much brighter, with both McLeod and Epps listed on the report and K’Von Wallace headed to IR.

The Eagles did make a few minor roster moves today, bringing back a familiar face in Casey Tucker while promoting Sua Opeta to the active roster, presumably as guard depth with both backups now in-line to start. They also signed EDGE Cameron Malveaux To the practice squad. Stay tuned for a full breakdown!
