The Eagles will head into this weekend’s matchup with a relatively clean bill of health, at least in comparison to what the concerns were at the start of the week. Here is the teams’ final injury report before the game.

The big news from this report is that Miles Sanders will be out for around three weeks and was placed on injured reserve today with an ankle injury. Kenny Gainwell will pick up the slack but it’s worth noting that the run-game looked poor after Sanders left the action on Sunday.

Anthony Harris is doubtful to make his return after missing two weeks with injuries to his hands and groin (don’t get carried away). The safety position was down to its bare bones against Las Vegas and although his play has been much more inconsistent than what he was able to produce in Minnesota, he would be a welcome addition to a secondary that’s asked to bare all the weight of the defense. Unfortunately, the likes of Marcus Epps may be asked to hold the line once again.

Every other Eagle listed on the injury report outside of rookie Zech McPhearson, who is yet to make an impact anyway this season, and JJ Arcega-Whiteside, will be good to go on Sunday. This is encouraging considering that some really big names were listed on the injury report.

For the most part, the Eagles have been able to avoid the injury bug so far. There’s a lot of football left to play, but so far, so good.
