Week 11 Injury Report: Eagles vs Patriots

The Eagles will look to try and have their first three-game winning streak this weekend when they face the defending Super Bowl champion New England Patriots.

After a full week of rest with a bye week, there are still quite a few Birds that are banged up. Here's a look at their final injury report:

LB Nigel Bradham (ankle): Bradham has been out with this injury since he suffered it in the Minnesota Vikings game a month ago. It sounds like he'll need at least one more week to recover, so the hope will be he can return for the Seahawks game.

WR Alshon Jeffery (ankle): Jeffery suffered his ankle injury on the final offensive drive in the Bears game. Carson Wentz will have to rely on Nelson Agholor and Jordan Matthews becoming his go-to wide receivers in this game, or probably just have to have Zach Ertz and Dallas Goedert become his primary receivers.

RB Darren Sproles (quad): Sproles is now officially out for the remainder of the 2019 season, so he'll likely be placed on injured reserved soon so the team can replace his roster spot.

RB Jordan Howard (shoulder): This is the injury that fans will be playing the most attention to. If Howard can't go that takes away a big part of the Eagles offensive success so far this year. Miles Sanders would become the lead and go-to 'back in this extremely difficult matchup. Jay Ajayi might also get some touches too if he is prepared enough to play.

On the other side of the spectrum, the Evil Empire will enter the game relatively healthy, with no players officially out for Sunday. Here's a look at their final injury report:

S Patrick Chung (heel/chest): The former Eagle and current cocaine-enthusiast has been a solid part of the Patriots secondary ever since he returned their from his brief stint in Philadelphia. If he can't play, then Duron Harmon (the guy who had Nick Foles' lone interception in Super Bowl LII) will take his spot on the field.

S Nate Ebner (ankle/back): Ebner is the Patriots' special teams' ace. If he misses this game this can be one facet of the game the Eagles can try to take advantage of, as they will need as many advantages as possible to exploit in order to come out of this game with a "W."

RB Damien Harris (hamstring): The rookie has only played in two games this season, so he isn't expected to make much of an impact anyway if he is active on Sunday. TE Matt LaCosse (knee): LaCosee is the backup tight end for the Pats (behind Ben Watson). He has only taken 21% of the snaps on offense and has three receptions this season, so he likely wouldn't impact the game anyway if he is healthy and active.

WR Gunner Olszewski (ankle/hamstring): Olszewski is the Patriots' punt returner, so this could impact their special teams on Sunday. Like mentioned earlier, the Eagles need to make impacts in the special teams game in order to try and steal a victory against New England. The backup punt returner listed on their depth chart is Julian Edelman.

DT Danny Shelton (ankle): This could be an injury that hurts the Pats the most if he is unable to play, because this would allow the Eagles to have some success with running up the middle of the field. If Shelton can't play his backup is Adam Butler, who has had a solid start so far in 2019 (4.5 sacks in nine games). DE John Simon (elbow): In nine games this season, Simon has racked up three sacks and one forced fumble. Even if he can't play, his backup (Chase Winovich) has been arguably better than him, putting up 4.5 sacks.
