Week 12 Injury Report: Eagles vs Seahawks

The Eagles will look to try and get back above .500 this weekend when they face the 8-2 Seattle Seahawks.

There are still a handful of Eagles dealing with nagging injuries. Here's a look at their final injury report:

WR Nelson Agholor (knee): It appears Agholor banged his knee up on the potential game-tying touchdown against the Patriots in the final minutes of the game. A week off in general might be best for Agholor to try and clear his head with all his mistakes plus the constant harassment from fans.

S Rudy Ford (abdomen): Ford has primarily been a special teamer for the Birds this year. Dave Fipp will have to make some changes so that part of the game doesn't become a liability.

T Lane Johnson (concussion): Johnson wasn't able to clear concussion protocol in time, so Andre Dillard will be getting his first career start at right tackle, with Halapoulivaati Vaitai backing him up.

RB Jordan Howard (shoulder): This is still 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 once again. With a full week of practice under his belt, Jay Ajayi might also get some touches ahead of Boston Scott now, especially since Scott had an uninspiring performance last week.

WR Alshon Jeffery (ankle): Jeffery suffered his ankle injury on the final offensive drive in the Bears game. If both Jeffery and Agholor can't go, Carson Wentz will have to rely on Jordan Matthews and J.J. Arcega-Whiteside becoming his go-to wide receivers in this game, or probably just have to have Zach Ertz and Dallas Goedert become his primary receivers.

For what feels like the first time this season, the Eagles opponent is also banged up a little bit. Here's what the final injury report looks like for the Seahawks:

TE Luke Willson (hamstring): Willson is the backup tight end in Seattle, and years ago he was once considered Russell Wilson's most-reliable last resort targets. Nowadays though he is barely a factor in the passing game. Even if he was active he wasn't expected to make an impact. Tyrone Swoopes will likely be the backup tight end on Sunday, and he has only played two games before in his career.

DE Jadeveon Clowney (knee/hip): Clowney is a force to be reckoned with, but the one knock in his game is his ability to stay healthy. If he is able to play, hopefully he won't be at 100%. It's likely he would be lined up across from Andre Dillard if Lane Johnson is unable to play. The rookie will have his hands full on Sunday if this ends up being what is laid out for him. If Clowney can't play then L.J. Collier (a 1st-round pick from this year's draft) will be the primary pass rusher.

CB Nieko Thorpe (groin): Thorpe is primarily a special teamer, as he has played just 3% of defensive snaps compared to 42% of the special teams snaps this season. It's unclear who would replace him on special teams, but the Eagles could gain an advantage there if he cannot play.
