The Eagles will fly to New York this weekend to finish off their season series with the New York Giants. They will be attempting to sweep the Giants for the fourth season in a row (and in six of the last seven seasons).
It took almost half of the season, but the Eagles are FINALLY at a point where we can call them a "healthy" team. Here's what their final injury report for Sunday's game looks like:
CB Craig James (shoulder): James' injury affects the Eagles' depth at outside cornerback. Michael Jacquet will be the primary backup for Darius Slay and Avonte Maddox.
The Giants are also pretty healthy coming into this matchup, here's what their final injury report looks like:
RB Devonta Freeman (ankle/hamstring): Freeman will be placed on IR. Wayne Gallman (51 rushes, 222 yards, one touchdown in 2020) and Dion Lewis (19 rushes, 59 yards, one touchdown) are expected to get the bulk of the snaps this weekend.
CB Isaac Yiadom (calf): Yiadom must have suffered his calf injury in Thursday's practice because this is the first time his name was mentioned on the injury report. He has played in nine games this season, starting four of them. He has registered 26 tackles, 0.5 sacks, two passes defended, one forced fumble, and one QB hit. Quarterbacks have a perfect passer rating when targeting Yiadom this season, so it actually might be a downer for the Eagles offense if he has to miss this game. Madre Harper (four tackles, one fumble recovery in six career games) is next in line on the depth chart if Yiadom can not go.
WR Golden Tate (knee): Tate suffered this knee injury in practice this week. Darius Slayton and Sterling Shepherd are still the top receivers for the Giants, but if Tate can't go, then his snaps will be divided to Austin Mack (five receptions, 73 yards in 2020 ) or C.J. Board (eight receptions, 76 yards in 2020). The Giants also picked up Dante Pettis (38 receptions, 576 yards, seven touchdowns in career) from San Francisco via waivers, so he could be factored as well.
