2020 Week 6 Injury Report: Eagles vs Ravens

The Eagles will look to pull off an upset on Sunday as they face a 4-1 Baltimore Ravens squad. They'll have to come up with a win while missing seven players on the roster.


Here's a look at the Eagles' final injury report:

S Marcus Epps (rib): Epps had gotten an increase in snaps due to Will Parks being hurt and Jalen Mills temporarily moving back to cornerback. With Parks back this Sunday, Epps would have reverted back to a limited role on defense anyway.


T Lane Johnson (ankle): Johnson is likely to appear on the injury report for the rest of the year with his constantly nagging ankle injury. There might be times where he misses a game or two the rest of the season, as well as leaving games early if his ankle is bothering him too much. Rookie Jack Driscoll will see all of the snaps that Johnson ends up missing with this injury.

G/T Matt Pryor (illness): Pryor has been a liability at RG this season, so him missing Sunday's game won't be game-changing. 27-year-old Jamon Brown, who has been on the roster since Week 2, will get the start in Pryor's absence.


LB Duke Riley (rib): Riley hasn't been terrible this season, but he also hasn't played as well as the Eagles need him to play. We should see at least one of the rookie linebackers (Davion Taylor, Shaun Bradley) take Riley's missed snaps on Sunday.


WR DeSean Jackson (hamstring): Seeing Jackson on the injury report is growing old.....much like DeSean himself. We'll see the same rotation at receiver we saw last week against the Steelers -- Travis Fulgham, Greg Ward, and John Hightower getting the majority of the snaps while Quez Watkins and J.J. Arcega-Whiteside get just a handful of snaps each.


WR Alshon Jeffery (foot): We have approached Week 6, which was the latest the team was expecting Jeffery to make his season debut. It begs the question if the Birds should have just kept him on the PUP list and make him automatically miss the first six weeks and open up a roster spot. As mentioned earlier, we'll see the same rotation at receiver we saw last week against the Steelers -- Travis Fulgham, Greg Ward, and John Hightower getting the majority of the snaps while Quez Watkins and J.J. Arcega-Whiteside get just a handful of snaps each.


CB Avonte Maddox (ankle): Maddox (and Craig James) being out the last few weeks has caused Jim Schwartz to move Jalen Mills back to cornerback. If Maddox is out but James is playing, then James will likely be the outside corner. If both are out or need to be limited, then Mills will likely play cornerback for the third-straight week.

The Ravens are dealing with quite a few injuries of their own, but most of the players on their injury report sound like they will be game-time decisions. Here's a look at the Ravens' final injury report:

DB/LB Anthony Levine (abdomen): Levine is a veteran defensive back with 119 games under his belt. Though in five games this season he has played just 11 defensive snaps. If Levine is unable to play, then Jordan Richards (73 games -- 96 tackles, six passes defended, two forced fumbles) is the likely candidate to take his snaps.


DE Derek Wolfe (neck/concussion): Wolfe is a big part of the rotation of edge rushers on Baltimore's defense, having collected 160 snaps so far this season. If Wolfe isn't cleared to play, then Jihad Ward (151 snaps this season) will see an increase in activity on Sunday. In 46 career games, Ward has registered 5.0 sacks, 23 QB Hits, and 53 tackles (six for loss).


WR Chris Moore (finger/thigh): Moore is a depth receiver that has yet to be active this season.


CB Marcus Peters (thigh): Peters is, of course, one of the Ravens' starting outside cornerbacks and is coming off of an All-Pro season in 2019. If he is unable to play or is limited on Sunday, then Jimmy Smith (112 games -- 14 interceptions, 342 tackles) and Anthony Averett (25 games -- 31 tackles) would see increases in their snap counts.


G Tyre Phillips (shoulder): Phillips was a third-round pick in April's draft and is the starting right guard for the Ravens. He had to miss last week's game with this same shoulder injury. If Phillips has to miss a second-consecutive week, then Patrick Mekari (16 career games) would get the start again. Ben Powers (six career games) also saw snaps at right guard last Sunday and could see some again if Phillips is out.


CB Jimmy Smith (knee): Smith is Marcus Peters' backup and has played 64% of the defensive snaps this season. If he can't go or is limited, then Anthony Averett (25 games -- 31 tackles) and Khalil Dorsey (three career games -- one tackle) would be thrown into the mix.


T Ronnie Staley (shoulder): Stanley is the Ravens' All-Pro left tackle. He'll play Sunday, but if he is limited and needs to miss snaps, then D.J. Fluker (97 career games) will take some snaps at the left tackle position.
