Aside from the known injuries that have led a handful of the Philadelphia Eagles’ best players to the team’s injured reserve, the guys in midnight green (or in this case, black) are relatively healthy ahead of Week 12’s game. The Birds and Green Bay Packers renew acquaintances for the 46th time as they highlight Sunday’s slate of games with a duel in primetime.

Philly dropped their Wednesday injury report at about 4 p.m. EST. It housed one name, rookie cornerback Josh Jobe. He’s been there for a while, and in all honesty, everyone’s starting to wonder how serious this hamstring injury is.

While no NFL team is one hundred percent healthy at this juncture of an NFL season, the Eagles’ medical staff has done a phenomenal job as has the coaching staff as they’ve successfully navigated pro football’s version of ‘work-life balance’. This is the healthiest that this team has been at this point of the season in quite some time.

Here’s a look at the Eagles’ injured reserve and the Packers’ injury report.

As of Wednesday, the Eagles, after releasing wide receiver Auden Tate from the practice squad and offensive tackle Jarrid Wilson from the practice squad’s IR, have an available spot on the scout team. Currently, offensive lineman Brett Toth is on their physically unable to perform list (the PUP). Seven players are on the injured reserve:

  • Jordan Davis, defensive tackle
  • Avonte Maddox, cornerback
  • Dallas Goedert, tight end
  • Derek Barnett, defensive end
  • Marlon Tuipulotu, defensive tackle
  • Jaeden Graham, tight end
  • Janarius Robinson, defensive end

The Packers’ injury report states the following: offensive tackle Caleb Jones is dealing with an illness and currently sits on their Reserve/Non-Football Illness list. Four players are on their injured reserve: linebacker Tipa Galeai, linebacker Rashan Gary, center/guard Jake Hanson, and cornerback Eric Stokes.

Kickoff for the Eagles/Packers game is scheduled for 8:20 p.m. EST on Sunday night. We’ll keep an eye on both rosters. Hopefully, nothing changes during practice. Sure, injuries are a part of the game, but no one wants to see them happen.
