The Eagles try to get their season back on track Thursday as they head to Green bay to face the undefeated Packers. The good news is that the team is slowly starting to get a little more healthy, as they only have three players listed as OUT for the game. Here's a breakdown of their final injury report:
CB Ronald Darby (hamstring): Doug Pederson has confirmed that Darby will miss a few weeks thanks to this new hamstring injury. I don't have any information regarding his injury but my best guess is that he will miss somewhere between 4-8 weeks since hamstrings can be tricky to fully heal.
DT Tim Jernigan (foot): Timmy's injury will require him to miss a few more weeks weeks. The only two defensive tackles left on the roster behind Fletcher Cox are Hassan Ridgeway and Akeem Spence. So let's pray that no more injuries come to that group (or any other positional group for that matter).
WR DeSean Jackson (abdomen): At first we were told Jackson stayed out of the Falcons game due to a groin injury. So now is this a new injury or the initial report was a lie/misdiagnosed? You never know with this medical staff and Doug Pederson would never disclose what exactly is going on, so it's best not to speculate. He's not going to play against the Packers, but there is a decent chance he is available for the Jets game the following Sunday.
RB Corey Clement (shoulder): His fumble on the kickoff to start the 2nd half in Atlanta was a double whammy, as he suffered a painful shoulder injury. After missing the Lions game he should be good play against the Packers, but if not he will absolutely be ready for the Jets game in Week 5.
The Packers are banged up a little bit but won't be missing many players for Thursday Night. Here's what their report looks like:
OUT - DL Montravius Adams (shoulder): starting defensive end has recorded 1.5 sacks in his first two years in the NFL. This will be his second straight game missed
OUT - LB Oren Burks (chest): One of the Packers' two starting inside linebackers according to their depth chart. In his rookie season last year he recorded just 24 tackles.
QUESTIONABLE - LB Za'Darius Smith (knee): Smith joined Green Bay this offseason after spending his first four seasons in Baltimore, and so far he is flourishing. He has recorded three sacks in his first three games in green and yellow. Him being out or limited would be a huge benefit for the offensive line to protect Carson Wentz.
QUESTIONABLE - LB Kyler Fackrell (shoulder): Backs up Preston Smith as the outside linebacker. He's not too shabby, recording 15.5 sacks since 2016.
QUESTIONABLE - WR Jake Kumerow (shoulder): Kumerow backs up Devante Adams, but he is primarily used on special teams.
