2021 Week 3 Injury Report: Eagles at Cowboys

The Birds are a little banged out going into Week 3, but comparing injuries to the past few years they are in a relatively good spot. Here's a look at their Week 3 injury report.

Brandon Graham (achilles) - BG is out for the season, which means that Josh Sweat, Derek Barnett, and Ryan Kerrigan are all likely to see increases in their snap counts to try to make up for the major loss at DE.


Brandon Brooks (pec) - Landon Dickerson has been announced as the starting right guard for the foreseeable future, as Brooks will have a chance to return in the later part of the season.

Jordan Mailata (knee) - Andre Dillard gets the start in Mailata's place, as Mailata suffered a MCL sprain in practice this week.


Rodney McLeod (knee) - McLeod remains out, so Marcus Epps and K'Von Wallace will continue splitting reps in his place.


Davion Taylor (calf) - Taylor made his season debut last week but played only nine snaps before re-injuring his calf. We'll have to wait until the inactive list comes out Monday night before the game to find out Taylor's availability.


Boston Scott (illness) - Scott has yet to play a snap this season anyway, so the plan is likely to keep Scott out again Monday unless there is an injury to Miles Sanders or Kenny Gainwell.

The Cowboys are also banged up heading into this game. They have 12 played on IR, including DE DeMarcus Lawrence, DT Neville Gallimore, and WR Michael Gallup. DE Bradlee Anae and LB Keanu Neal were placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list and are not available for this game. Randy Gregory will be back for Monday's game after being placed on reserve/COVID-19 list last week Also, DL Trysten Hill is still on the PUP list so he is not available.

OUT

DE Dorance Armstrong (ankle) - Armstrong has played in 48 career games and would have likely played a good chunk of snaps if he was available due to other injuries on the d-line. Chauncey Golston is behind Armstrong on the depth chart.

T Ty Nsekhe (illness) - Nsekhe is a versatile backup lineman for the Cowboys. Brandon Knight is behind Nsekhe on the depth chart.


DT Carlos Watkins (knee) - Watkins is one of the two starting DTs for the 'Boys. With him out next up is likely Brent Urban.


DOUBTFUL

S Donovan Wilson (groin) - Wilson is one of the starting safeties for the 'Boys. Jayron Kearse will likely see a good amount of playing time since he played in Wilson's place last week.
