The Philadelphia Eagles have released their second injury report ahead of this week’s clash against the Kansas City Chiefs. With a Bye Week giving Sirianni’s soldiers some extra time to tend to some open wounds, the team appears to finally be trending in the right direction as far as the injury report goes.
Eagles injury report: Reasons for optimism
The opening half of the season was hardly kind to the Philadelphia Eagles. Injuries ripped through the secondary and defensive line, while Jalen Hurts battled an ongoing leg setback for the majority of games played, sporting a leg brace over the past month.
The good news is that the only player to miss Friday’s practice was Dallas Goedert, who is expected to miss time with an arm injury sustained in the loss to the Cowboys.
Bradley Roby and Cam Jurgens were full participants which is absolutely huge given the task at hand. On one side of things, the Eagles need all the help they can get when it comes to stopping Travis Kelce, and on the other, finding a way to suffocate DT Chris Jones. Both players returning would go a long way in helping those assignments.
Jalen Hurts drops the brace
As for Jalen Hurts, he’s reportedly leaving the knee brace at home this week. The young QB mentioned the importance of a well-timed bye week in this development.
While he hasn’t been as prolific running the ball, he’s been arguably the best quarterback in the NFL this season, despite playing with a lingering injury. A step forward in terms of the strength of that knee could yield huge dividends for both Hurts and the Eagles.
Eagles vs Chiefs
The Eagles are set to lock horns with the Chiefs on Monday Night at 8:15PM ET. The game will be televised on ESPN.
