Ahead of the Philadelphia Eagles‘ second home game of the NFL’s regular season, one versus Jacksonville, a pair of Jaguars starters appeared on their Friday injury report as ‘questionable’ for Week 4’s contest. Wide receiver Zay Jones has been dealing with an ankle injury and participated in Friday’s practice session but only in a limited capacity after sitting out of Thursday’s session.

Cornerback Shaquill Griffin was limited on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. He’s recovering from a hip injury. The Jags also mentioned reserve guard Cole Van Lanen (hamstring) and linebacker K’Lavon Chaisson (ankle). Both were also among Friday’s limited participants.

Chaisson was expected to be an important role player coming into the campaign. In total, he’s seen 28 snaps on the season. Van Lanen is the backup to starting Jags guard Brandon Scherff.

We also have good and bad news to report on the Eagles’ injury front.

On Philadelphia’s side, the Birds have concerns of their own. Slot corner Avonte Maddox and running back Boston Scott are both out of Sunday’s game. Avonte has been dealing with an ankle injury. Boston is working through a rib issue. That’s the bad news.

The good news is that everyone else on Philly’s injury report was a full participant on Friday and is expected to be available if needed. That includes Darius Slay. He’s been slowed by a back injury that has had everyone concerned, even if only slightly.

A.J. Brown also returned after being absent with a personal matter, but he brings more good news to the discussion. He welcomed a newborn into his family.  Here’s the full report detailing everyone else’s status.

Kickoff for Week 4’s game is scheduled for 1 p.m. EST on Sunday. This is the sixth meeting between these two teams and the first time that they’ve locked horns since their battle in London during the 2018 regular season.
