As Eagles fans prepare for an autumnal trip to Las Vegas, the team will be joining them in a very healthy state. The Eagles released their final injury report ahead of the week 7 matchup earlier today and there is nothing but good news:

The Eagles only have one starter listed as questionable and that’s S Anthony Harris. He reportedly suffered a pair of hand injuries but that didn’t stop him from working through individual drills earlier this week, which is a positive sign. If he is unable to go then Marcus Epps will likely be the next man up, as K’Von Wallace climbs back to a potential return off of IR.

Lane Johnson will make his return to the team this week after missing three matchups due to some mental health hurdles. This will see Jordan Mailata make his return to left tackle and act as a huge boost to an offensive line that has been struggling to stop the bleeding since Lane took his absence. His presence will be needed against an underrated Las Vegas pass-rush, and with Mailata moving back over to the left, we should see a much more stable wall for Jalen Hurts to work behind.

Dallas Goedert was activated from the COVID-19/reserve list earlier this week and for now, Jack Stoll will work behind him as TE2. Tyree Jackson has been activated from IR and we should see his Eagles debut in the coming weeks if all goes to plan.

It’s been a bumpy few weeks for the Birds, but the worst of their 2021 schedule is behind them and the team are somehow still extremely healthy. The only way is up from here…right?
