2020 Week 7 Injury Report: Eagles vs Giants

It's a battle of the NFC East on Thursday Night Football as the Eagles will face the New York Giants at Lincoln Financial Field. Every divisional game is critical for the Birds this season, as it'll be their only way to punch a ticket to the postseason.

The Eagles will head into tomorrow's game dealing with a laundry list of injuries. Here's a look at their final injury report:

T Jack Driscoll (ankle)

Thankfully Lane Johnson will play on Thursday Night, however, we know Johnson isn't 100% healthy and could be taken out at any time. Brett Toth will likely take over at RT if Johnson misses parts of the game, and he looked awful in relief for Driscoll on Sunday.

TE Zach Ertz (ankle)

With both Ertz and Dallas Goedert out, Rochard Rodgers and Jason Croom will be the top two tight ends on Thursday.

DT Malik Jackson (quad)

Missing him will be a big blow, but that's exactly why Howie Roseman signed Javon Hargrave this past spring. Hargrave should see an increase in snaps, and Hassan Ridgeway will likely get on the field more too.

RB Miles Sanders (knee)

With their top running back out, the Eagles backfield on Thursday will consist of a rotation of Boston Scott, Corey Clement and Jason Huntley.

WR Alshon Jeffery (foot)

This should hopefully be the last game Jeffery misses with his foot injury, as Doug Pederson made it sound like he would have been cleared to play if it was a Sunday game. Travis Fulgham and J.J. Arcega-Whiteside will get snaps at Jeffery's "X" spot, and with DeSean Jackson coming back the Eagles could have production coming from their "Y" receiver. John Hightower will lose snaps with Jackson back. Greg Ward will once again get the slot receiver snaps.

S K'Von Wallace (shoulder):

His injury prognosis didn't sound too concerning, so he should hopefully be back for next Sunday's game against the Cowboys. Marcus Epps is healthy so he should be the next guy up for Wallace's snaps.

When compared to the Eagles, the Giants are relatively healthy. They do have a few names on their final injury report though:

DNP: WR C.J. Board (concussion)

Board is a backup receiver for the Giants who has appeared in only 10 career games and has only nine career receptions. Austin Mack (2020 undrafted rookie) will see some snaps in his Board's place.

DB Adrian Colbert (shoulder)

Colbert is a third-string safety that has played only 98 snaps on defense this season. Julian Love (21 career games; 61 tackles; two interceptions) or Nate Ebner (112 career games; 99 tackles) will likely receive an increase in snaps from Colbert's absence.

LB Tae Crowder (hamstring)

Crowder is a rookie backup linebacker for the Giants this season, playing just 36% of the team's defensive snaps this season. Markus Brown (68 career games; 29.5 sacks) or Carter Coughlin (three career snaps) will likely slide over to his role.

DB Darnay Holmes (neck)

Holmes was drafted in the 4th round of April's draft. He's primarily been a backup cornerback, playing in 185 snaps on defense this season. If he is unable to play, then fellow rookie Madre Harper (nine career snaps) will see some action.
