There’s a new injury to the Eagles’ defense that will make life tougher for them to win on Sunday. Following their final practice of the week, the Eagles listed both Chauncey Gardner-Johnson and Robert Quinn as out against the Titans on Sunday.
Eagles injury report for clash against the Titans
Chauncey Garnder-Johnson, who suffered a lacerated kidney in the team’s 40-33 win over the Packers last week, was expected to be out against Tennessee with an injury like his expected to take multiple weeks to heal.
Robert Quinn is a newcomer to the team and a newcomer to the injury report. After being a full participant in practice on Wednesday and Thursday, the former Bear has suffered a knee injury according to the team’s medical report, and will miss his first game on Sunday.
Philadelphia acquired Quinn for a fourth-round pick from the Chicago Bears during the trade deadline this season. The Bears ate up most of his lucrative contract and will be a free agent after this season.
Due to the timing of his trade, Quinn was set to play every single week of football without having a bye week to recuperate his body, something the 32-year-old edge rusher was very outspoken against. In five games with the Eagles, Quin has recorded just two tackles and has not logged a sack.
The former first-round pick has just one sack on the season so far this year.
The Eagles have not given any specifics to Quinn’s injury at this time. In the meantime, while no injury designation has been brought on first-round Jordan Davis, the Eagles will be down two key pieces to their defense against a Titans squad that is one of the most physical offenses in football.
