Philadelphia Eagles: Good news and bad news injury-wise
By now, most Philadelphia Eagles fans can probably recite the injury report by memory, but they were treated to good news and bad news on Thursday.
These days the names don’t seem to change much on the Philadelphia Eagles‘ injury report. Most of the fans and media probably even have the darn thing memorized at this point. Everyone just scrolls over to the column marked ‘practice participation’ to see what it says.
As always, there’s good news and bad news, but here are two notes that definitely fall in both categories.

The good news is this. Jalen Mills was a full participant on Thursday despite the ankle injury. Of the injured Eagles starters, he seems to be the guy who’s got the best chance of playing on Sunday.
Miles Sanders, on the other hand, didn’t participate in practice in any capacity as he pushes through an ankle injury of his own. That’s definitely not the news that Eagles fans want as they settle into a new year, but it is what it is.
Avonte Maddox (abdomen) and Sidney Jones (back) were both listed but full participants. Lane Johnson (ankle), Zach Ertz (ribs, back), Fletcher Cox (triceps), and Derek Barnett (ankle) were all ‘limited’. Nelson Agholor joins Miles Sanders as the only other Eagles that didn’t participate in any capacity.
If you were to take a poll, however, you won’t find any Eagles fan that’s going to complain about Agholor’s absence. At this point, everyone’s just counting the days until he’s out of here. We’ll all be waiting patiently to see how these guys have progressed come Friday.
