The Eagles will be flying across the country to take on the Arizona Cardinals in a crucial game. Unfortunately, a few of their players they'll be dealing with some injuries leading up to the game. Here's a look at their final injury report:
T Jack Driscoll (knee): The rookie is out for the rest of the season with this knee problem. Matt Pryor will be the next man up to play RT on Sunday.
CB Avonte Maddox (knee): Maddox is out for this game and could miss an additional week or two. The Eagles have a host of cornerbacks that they could try to mix in to play outside -- Nickell Robey-Coleman, Grayland Arnold, Michael Jacquet, Kevon Seymour, or Jameson Houston.
DB Grayland Arnold (hamstring): Arnold is expected to get some playing time if he is actually healthy enough to play through this hamstring issue.
CB Darius Slay (concussion): Slay still hasn't passed concussion protocol, but there is hope he can clear it in time to play in this game. The team needs him this week to try to limit DeAndre Hopkins. If he can't go, then Nickell Robey-Coleman, Grayland Arnold, Michael Jacquet, Kevon Seymour, and Jameson Houston will all be faced up against one of the top receivers in the game.
DT Malik Jackson (concussion): Jackson still hasn't passed concussion protocol, but there is hope he can clear it in time to play in this game. If not, then Javon Hargrave and rookie Raequan Williams will likely see an increase in snaps.
The Cardinals are dealing with a few injuries as well. Here's a look at their final injury report:
LB Kylie Fitts (hamstring): Fitts was the primary backup OLB behind Haason Reddick. Devon Kennard (320 tackles, 25.5 sacks, one interception -- 93 career games) will likely backup Reddick on Sunday.
K Zane Gonzalez (back): The Eagles should expect to face Mike Nugent, who went 4/4 on field goal attempts last week against the New York Giants.
DL Jordan Phillips (hamstring): The starting DT will be out, meaning that Zach Allen (25 tackles, 1.0 sack) should see an increase in playing time.
S Jalen Thompson (ankle): Thompson has been injured often this season. Deionte Thompson (43 tackles -- 21 career games) will likely have a bigger role on the defense this week.
RB Chase Edmonds (ankle): Kliff Kingsbury said that he expected Edmonds to be a true game-time decision on Sunday. Kenyon Drake (3,023 ryshing yards, 26 rushing touchdowns -- 74 career games) will likely get the bulk of the carries on Sunday.
CB Dre Kirkpatrick (hamstring): Kirkpatrick is the starting cornerback opposite Patrick Peterson. Byron Murphy Jr. (118 tackles, 1.0 sack, one interception, 15 passes defended -- 28 games) is Kirkpatrick's backup and can take over if Kirkpatrick is inactive or on a snap limit.
OL Justin Pugh (calf): Pugh is the starting LG in the Cardinals offense. If he can't play or is limited, then next up on the depth chart is veteran Max Garcia (75 carer games).
