The Philadelphia Eagles have released their second injury report ahead of this week’s clash against the Dallas Cowboys.

All quiet on the Eagles’ front

The injury report reads very much the same as yesterday’s. The only difference is that Sua Opeta has been upgraded to a full participant after being limited on Wednesday.

Bradley Roby is still unable to practice due to his shoulder injury. It might be too late to place him on IR, but the fact he’s barely played has been a real shame given that he was signed to replace Avonte Maddox.

Jack Stoll and Grant Calcaterra’s statuses are unchanged which means we’re one step closer to getting our first look at ‘Albert O’, who the Eagles traded for over the Summer. The former Broncos TE has all the size and athleticism needed to fill a depth role behind Dallas Goedert at TE, but has been a scratch for most of the year.

Questionable candidates

The Eagles do have a flurry of players marked as questionable after Wednesday’s practice, but the only notable addition here is Cam Jurgens. His practice window was activated yesterday after being sat on IR since week 4 with a foot sprain.

Jurgens was questionable again on Thursday so might not be quite ready to make his return this weekend, but with a Bye on the horizon, it’s likely we see him back for the clash against Kansas City.

Jalen Carter was also a full participant for the second day in a row after leaving Sunday’s game temporarily with an injury. That’s good news for the 2023 DROY candidate.
