2021 Week 2 Injury Report: Eagles vs 49ers

The Eagles head into Week 2 with an energized fanbase and locker room coming off of their Week 1 stomping of the Atlanta Falcons. Best of all, the Eagles came out of last week's game relatively unscathed. Only one player has been ruled out for Sunday's game, with only one other player questionable.

Here's a look at the Birds' injury report

With safety depth paper thin this season, there's no point in rushing Rodney McLeod back into action and risk further damaging his ACL recovery. He could be back next week or in early October if his recovery stays on track. If Marcus Epps is unable to be cleared by Sunday from his concussion, then K'Von Wallace will be the starting safety opposite of Anthony Harris.

The 49ers have had a terrible start to their season. They were able to hold on to a win in Detroit against the Lions, but they suffered many long-term injuries to key players in the process. RB Raheem Mostert and CB Jason Verrett both suffered season-ending injuries, and LB Dre Greenlaw will be out multiple weeks dealing with a groin injury.

Here's a look at San Francisco's injury report:

DE Arik Armstead (adductor) - The good news for the 49ers is that Armstead's backup, Dee Ford, is healthy and would be able to fill in if Armstead is out on limited by his injury

LB Marcell Harris (oblique) - The 49ers are paper thin at linebacker. They only have three healthy linebackers heading into Sunday's game and nobody currently listed as Harris' backup on the depth chart. They added former Eagle Nate Gerry to the practice squad, so there's a decent chance he could be activated and play key snaps against the Birds.

DT Javon Kinlaw (knee) - The 49ers DT depth is unproven behind Kinlaw, as the backups (Kentavius Street, Kevin Givens) have recorded just 2.0 sacks combined in their careers. 49ers fans will be praying that Kinlaw is good to go on Sunday.

CB Emmanuel Moseley (knee) - Moseley has been a key piece of the Niners defense the past two seasons, and with Verrett out the rest of the season the team needs him healthy to make sure the DB play doesn't drop off significantly. Listed behind him on the depth chart are rookie Ambry Thomas and former All-Pro Josh Norman.
