Wentz (ribs) is on track to return for Thursday's preseason finale against the Jets, Dave Spadaro of the Eagles' official site reports.
Although he isn't playing in Saturday's exhibition, Wentz threw passes on the field before the game, hinting at progress since earlier this week when he was held out of practice. If he does indeed suit up, Wentz could get an extended look in Thursday's game, as starter Sam Bradford will presumably be rested.
Matthews (knee) will not play in Saturday's preseason game against the Colts, Zach Berman of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Matthews hasn't practiced since suffering a bone bruise Aug. 5, but he did increase his activity level the past week, and he promised he'll be ready for Week 1. Once healthy, Matthews will be the Eagles' clear-cut top wideout, with Nelson Agholor, Rueben Randle, Dorial Green-Beckham and Josh Huff all jostling for position behind him. With Mathews sidelined, Huff is expected to join Agholor in Saturday's starting lineup.
Smallwood left Saturday's preseason contest at Indianapolis in order to be evaluated for a head injury.
Smallwood has spent the majority of his first preseason tending to a quadriceps injury but was cleared to take the field Saturday. The rookie was faring well prior to his departure, recording two carries for 11 yards, one reception for five yards, and one kick return for 30 yards. If he's indeed diagnosed with a concussion, Smallwood's chances of supplanting fellow running back Kenjon Barner from the third spot on the depth chart would be hindered, to say the least.
Though Drake (hamstring) has returned to practice, he won't play Thursday against the Falcons, the Miami Herald reports. "It's a very lingering injury, especially in my case because it's the second one in a couple of months," Drake noted. "My kind of game, I need that burst. So until I feel like I have that burst, I'm not going to feel 100 percent."
With Jay Ajayi and Arian Foster atop the Dolphins' RB depth chart, Drake is off the short-term fantasy radar, and his hamstring issue hasn't helped his chances of making an early-season impact. Meanwhile, fellow RB Isaiah Pead is making a strong case to stick with the team, while Damien Williams and Daniel Thomas also remain in the team's backfield mix.
Moore (concussion) will not play in Thursday's preseason tilt with Atlanta, the team's official site reports.
Moore suffered a concussion back in the Dolphins second preseason matchup against the Cowboys. It doesn't come as much of a surprise that the 32-year-old won't play considering he did not partake in practice throughout the week leading up to Thursday. Miami remains optimistic that Moore will be ready for Week 1, but in the meantime, Brandon Doughty and Zac Dysert will serve as the primary backups to Ryan Tannehill during his absence.
Howard (knee) is expected to be ready to play in the season opener for Miami, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.
The Dolphins need any and every healthy cornerback in order to compete this season. Howard won't play Thursday versus Atlanta but the Dolphins are hoping to ramp up his practice routine so that they might be able to get him some reps in the final preseason game next week.
The Dolphins and Gray agreed to a contract Thursday, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.
Landing the second tight-end role out of training camp, Gray earned 26 offensive snaps and 75 more on special teams over the first four games of 2015, during which he hauled in his only target. In the same game, though, he sustained a broken forearm and spent the rest of the season on injured reserve. Upon joining the Dolphins, he'll compete for one of the few TE spots behind Jordan Cameron.
Parker secured two of four targets for eight yards in Thursday's 17-6 preseason victory over the Falcons.
The 2015 No. 1 pick took a back seat to both Kenny Stills and Jarvis Landry, coming in third in catches and targets to both players. Parker has had a relatively quiet summer after dealing with a hamstring issue and then sitting out the Dolphins' first preseason game. He now has four receptions for 24 yards over the last two weeks, but is slated to be a focal point of the offense, particularly downfield, once the regular campaign kicks off.
Jordan (knee) has been notified by the league he is eligible to begin practicing, Adam Schfter of ESPN reports.
While Jordan has been cleared to practice, he is still unable to physically do so. The 26-year-old defensive end is still rehabbing from a knee injury. He has not played since December of 2014, and will face stiff competition for playing time on an already deep D-line.
