2020 Week 12 Injury Report: Eagles vs Seahawks

The Eagles are spiraling out of control. They enter Week 12 with a laughable 3-6-1 record and have to win if they want to maintain their lead in the NFC East. So of course it's perfect timing that a team they haven't beaten in 12 years (and haven't defeated at home in 28 years) is next on the schedule. Russell Wilson has been this team's kryptonite since he entered the league, and there's a good chance he'll continue his reign of terror in Philadelphia on Monday Night. The only thing going for the Eagles is that all three of their wins this season have come in primetime. Will they be able to win a fourth-straight game with a primetime audience watching? Or will they continue their embarrassing downfall?


Here's what the Eagles have for their final injury report:

S Rudy Ford (hamstring): Ford has primarily been a special teamer for the Birds this season. It'd be unclear who would take his role if he is unable to play since the team doesn't make their special teams depth chart public.


T Lane Johnson (ankle): Johnson told media members on Friday that his season is over because of this ankle injury not going away. The hope now is that he didn't permanently damage it and potentially ruin future seasons because of this wash of a year. Now that Jordan Mailata has secured the LT position (moving Jason Peters to RG), either Matt Pryor or Jack Driscoll will take over at RT for the remainder of the season. For now, Pryor is being given the first shot at RT for Monday's game.


G Sua Opeta (back): This is the first time Opeta appeared on the injury report this week, so he probably got injured at practice. With Opeta out, Nate Herbig and Jack Driscoll would be next up if Isaac Seumalo or Jason Peters goes out with an injury.


G Jason Peters (toe): Peters will try to play the game with this injury but there's a good chance he'll likely miss at least a drive or two by aggravating the injury during the game. Look for Nate Herbig to fill in for him or even Jack Driscoll could get in.

For the first time this season, the Eagles will be facing an opponent with a longer injury report than them. Here's what the Seahawks final injury report looks like:

T Brandon Shell (ankle): Shell is the starting RT in this Seahawks offense, playing in every game so far this season. With him out for Monday, expect Cedric Ogbuehi (53 career games -- 25 starts) to fill in for him.


RB Travis Homer (wrist/knee/thumb): Homer is banging up all over his body. With him ruled out for Monday, Carlos Hyde (45 rushes, 204 yards, three touchdowns) will likely see the bulk of the carries, but fourth-round rookie DeeJay Dallas (30 rushes, 101 yards, two touchdowns; 15 receptions, 100 yards, one touchdown) could also see a spike in usage.


G Jordan Simmons (calf): Simmons backs up Mike Iupati (who is also dealing with an injury) at LG. Rookie Phil Haynes (fourth-round pick) is behind Simmons on the depth chart if Simmons (or Iupati) can't play.


IOL Kyle Fuller (ankle): Fuller is the backup center for the Seahawks. If he can't play and starter Ethan Pocic has to exit at some point, rookie Phil Haynes (fourth-round pick) or Jamarco Jones (24 career games -- four starts) will likely have to fill in at center.

CB D.J. Reed (foot): Reed has played 31% of Seattle's defensive plays this season as a rotational piece in their secondary. If he is inactive or limited, then Linden Stephens (five tackles -- 11 career games) or rookie Jayson Stanley (zero career defensive snaps) will have to fill in.


WR Freddie Swain (foot): Swain was a sixth-round pick in April's draft and has been used sparsely in the Seahawks offense (10 receptions, 134 yards, one touchdown). If he is inactive or limited, then David Moore (24 receptions, 337 yards, four touchdowns) and/or Penny Hart (zero career offensive snaps) will have to step up.


WR David Moore (hip): Moore has some solid production this season (24 receptions, 337 yards, four touchdowns). If he is inactive or limited, then Freddie Swain (10 receptions, 134 yards, one touchdown) and/or Penny Hart (zero career offensive snaps) will have to step up.
