The Eagles will look to try and get back to .500 this weekend when they face the lowly 2-9 Miami Dolphins.
The Eagles injury report looks lengthy at first glance, but overall health-wise this is probably the best report they have had since Week 1. Here's a look at their final injury report:
TE Zach Ertz (hamstring): If he is unable to play it will be a big blow to the Eagles offense and the entire gameplan. Dallas Goedert would get the start but with no decent backup tight end to him, there will be no 12-personnel run during this game. The Eagles will have to hope that their remaining healthy receivers are enough to overpower a weak Miami defense.
RB Jordan Howard (shoulder): If both Ertz and Howard can't go, that takes away a ginormous part of the Eagles offense. Miles Sanders and Jay Ajayi will share the carries again if Howard has to miss his third-straight game. Being off the field in recent weeks has certainly taken a toll on Howard's next possible contract.
The Dolphins are relatively healthy heading into this game, although their starters aren't as talented as other teams the Eagles have faced this season. Here's their final injury report heading into the weekend:
CB Ken Crawley (shoulder): Crawley has started two games for the Dolphins, recording just six tackles. He is currently buried on the Dolphins depth chart, as Ken Webster, Nik Needham and Ryan Lewis are all listed ahead of him. So it's hard to say how much he would play if he is active, or who his backup is if he is unable to play.
S Steven Parker (groin): The rookie has played in 10 games this season, primarily as a backup to Reshad Jones. In this games he has produced 18 tackles, two passes defended and one interception. If he can't play then Walt Aikens would likely be the backup to both safety spots. In 11 games this season, Aikens has registered 13 tackles and one tackle for loss.
CB Ken Webster (ankle): Webster is currently listed as one of the team's starting corners on their depth chart. He has been held out of the previous four games with a left ankle injury. If he misses a fifth-straight game, then Nik Needham will likely be the starter. In seven games this season, Needham has registered 31 tackles, one tackle for loss, three QB hits, six passes defended, one interception, one sack, and one forced fumble.
