Things are looking good for Week 10 if you’re a Philadelphia Eagles fan.

The following statement might be one that Philadelphia Eagles fans would shy away from as it could venture into the area of being a jinx. Let’s just throw it out there anyway. After years of watching Philly employ that next-man-up mentality, head coach Doug Pederson‘s guys may have turned the corner.

Dare we say that this team is getting healthy? They seemed to have bucked an annoying trend. Seemingly every year since 2017, it has felt like someone important has gone down with an injury every week (even if that’s not the case). This year has been a little different. Philly started the campaign banged up, and now, it looks like they’re getting guys back.

It’s a good thing too. Eight games remain, beginning with a very important divisional game versus a New York Giants team that, all of a sudden, is performing like they have everything to play for. Philly will have some reinforcements for that one. Let’s dig into Friday’s injury report for a second.

It looks like a Philadelphia Eagles DB is the only player ruled out for Week 10.

At the time of this story being published on the eve of Philly’s rematch with New York, it appears that Craig James, a cornerback, is the only player that’s been ruled out. Fletcher Cox didn’t participate in Philly’s last practice session of the week, but according to Chris McPherson of, he should be available for Sunday’s game.

Running back Miles Sanders, left tackle Jason Peters, right tackle Lane Johnson, wide receiver Alshon Jeffery, tackle Jack Driscoll, cornerback Cre’Von LeBlanc, and defensive tackle Malik Jackson were all full participants on Friday and should be available for the rematch. Guard Nate Herbig was limited at practice, but he should be available as well.

As many of you know, senior defensive assistant Jeremiah Washburn won’t be available for the game due to an illness. The Eagles also reported on Saturday that they had decided to elevate cornerback Michael Jacquet and tight end Caleb Wilson from the practice squad to the active roster. In a corresponding move, defensive tackle T.Y. McGill has been elevated from the practice squad as COVID-19 replacement.
