Per NFL requirement, the Philadelphia Eagles released an estimated injury report prior to their first practice leading up to Super Bowl LII.

There was no formal practice for the Philadelphia Eagles on Wednesday. Per NFL rule, however, they still need to provide league offices with an estimated injury report. Later that evening, they did just that.

Here’s the good news if you’re an Eagles fan, this is a team that appears to be relatively as the third Super Bowl in team history approaches. That’s exactly what fans, coaches and the team, itself, wants to hear.

Philly may be getting their middle linebacker back in the lineup.

Middle linebacker Dannell Ellerbe was the only member of the Eagles roster being listed as a ‘limited participant’. That’s for obvious reasons. He missed the NFC Championship Game due to injury, and as the team’s first official practice prior to football’s biggest game approaches, Ellerbe still appears to be dealing with a nagging hamstring injury.

Jay Ajayi appears on the list as well but as a ‘full participant’.

For those interested in what’s going on with the New England Patriots, here’s a quick update. Defensive tackle Malcolm Brown (foot),  running back Mike Gillislee (knee) and tackle LaAdrian Waddle (also a knee) were listed as ‘limited participants’.

The biggest news on the Patriots’ injury front continues to be the status of tight end Rob Gronkowski. He’ll likely be ready by the Super Bowl. As of now, however, he appears on the injury report under the ‘did not participate’ column, as did defensive end Deatrich Wise Jr. Both are in the NFL’s concussion protocol.

All of this is something we’ll all be monitoring as the Super Bowl approaches.
