05/23/17DLFletcher CoxPersonalQUESTIONABLECox was not at OTAs Tuesday for personal reasons, Zach Berman of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

The Eagles granted Cox permission to be with his family this week and subsequently not report to OTAs. According to the report, Cox is expected to return to team activities following the week-long absence.

05/23/17QBJerod EvansFootQUESTIONABLEEvans (foot) reached an injury settlement with the Eagles on Monday, NFL.com's Adam Caplan reports.

Evans signed with Philadelphia as an undrafted free agent this offseason but quickly landed on IR after injuring his foot. However, after reaching an injury settlement Monday, he'll now head back to the free-agent market.

05/23/17WRJordan MatthewsAnkleQUESTIONABLEMatthews is still recovering from the ankle injury he suffered in late November, Zach Berman of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Matthews was able to participate in OTAs on Tuesday, but he's still not quite at 100 percent. The ankle injury kept him sidelined for two of the Eagles' last five regular-season contests, so he'll look to avoid any setbacks throughout the remainder of the offseason. He's slated to be positioned primarily in the slot this year, with Alshon Jeffery and Torrey Smith on the outside.

05/18/17DLCharles WalkerKneeQUESTIONABLEWalker, who is dealing with a knee injury, was waived by the Eagles on Thursday, Zach Berman of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Walker was waived by the Eagles, with the team needing to open up a roster spot for free agent addition LeGarrette Blount. If Walker goes unclaimed on waivers, he'll revert to injured reserve.

04/29/17DBSidney JonesAchillesOUTJones (Achilles) is hopeful to be out of his walking boot by May 21, Aaron Kasinitz of Penn Live reports.

Jones, originally a sure-fire first-round selection, fell to the second round of last month's draft after tearing his Achilles tendon in March. While the team is being relatively mum on his progress, the May 21 date of removing his walking boot is the first big step in his recovery. Martin Frank of the Delaware News reported that Jones shot down rumblings he could be back by October by stating, "I don't think that's a credible source." While it is still too early to pin down a return date, he at least appears to be making significant progress in his recovery.

04/13/17DLBeau AllenPectoralDOUBTFULAllen underwent successful surgery on his torn pectoral muscle and will be out 4-to-6 months, Tim McManus of ESPN reports.

That timeline would place Allen's soonest return near the beginning of the preseason, but the chances are that he will not be back until after the regular season commences. Until then, expect Timmy Jernigan to act as the Eagles' starting defensive tackle. Stay updated on Allen's recovery as training camp approaches.

03/07/17RBRyan MathewsNeckQUESTIONABLEMathews (neck) is still likely to be released, PhillyVoice.com's Jimmy Kempski reports.

Mathews was cleared to resume working out around the time of the draft, and while he still hasn't passed a physical, the Eagles likely expect him to do so before the start of training camp. The team apparently intends to release him with an injury settlement even if he can't pass a physical, ready to move forward with a backfield led by Wendell Smallwood (knee), Darren Sproles and fourth-round rookie Donnel Pumphrey. Philadelphia could look to add some size to its backfield through free agency or a trade, as LeGarrette Blount remains unsigned and a few teams appear to have at least three or four competent runners.

01/26/17DBRon BrooksQuadricepsQUESTIONABLEBrooks suffered a ruptured quadriceps tendon during Sunday's game against the Vikings and will consequently require season-ending surgery, The Philadelphia Inquirer's Les Bowen reports.

Brooks went down after attempting to make a tackle during the first quarter Sunday. With his injury requiring surgery, Brooks is expected to land on injured reserve soon, opening a roster spot for the Eagles. After signing with Philadelphia this offseason, Brooks' familiarity with coordinator Jim Schwartz's defensive scheme, as well as fellow cornerback Leodis McKelvin's previous hamstring injury, resulted in Brooks starting five out of six games thus far. While McKelvin's return to health should help make up for Brooks' absence, C.J. Smith or Terrence Brooks could be activated to boost the Eagles' secondary going forward.

01/26/17DLAlex McCalisterCalfQUESTIONABLEMcCalister (calf) was placed on the Eagles' injured reserve list on Monday, DelawareOnline.com reports.

A seventh-rounder from this year's draft class, McCalister suffered the injury sometime during practice. He now figures to enter the 2016 campaign with a "redshirt" approach and try out for the team next season.

01/26/17RBWendell SmallwoodKneeQUESTIONABLESmallwood (knee), Darren Sproles, and rookie Donnel Pumphrey likely will end up sharing the workload, Jeff McLane of philly.com reports.

It still isn't entirely clear if the Eagles plan to release Ryan Mathews (neck) once he's able to pass a physical, but he'll presumably have to accept a major pay cut for the team to even consider keeping him around. Widely rumored to have interest in some of the draft's top running backs, Philadelphia ultimately waited on the position until the fourth round, where it picked up the 176-pound Pumphrey to join a backfield that already includes the diminutive Sproles. While listed at a modest 5-10, 208 pounds, Smallwood may end up being the closest thing the team has to a power runner. Such a scenario would bode well for his chances to pick up early-down snaps and short-yardage carries in what figures to be a committee backfield.

01/26/17LBJoe WalkerKneeQUESTIONABLEWalker (knee) is out for the season now that his injury has been confirmed to be a torn ACL, Les Bowen of the Philadelphia Daily News reports.

Walker had an MRI on Friday that confirmed his injury. His absence leaves the Eagles thin at the top of the linebacker position with just two middle linebackers left on the roster. Ed Reynolds figures to see extra reps with Walker out.

(Updated 08/19/2016)
01/02/17LBMychal KendricksQuadricepsQUESTIONABLEKendricks (quadriceps) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Cowboys.

Kendricks injured his quad during Friday's practice, and the injury will bring an end to his season. He'll finish the year with 32 tackles, one pass defensed, and one fumble recovery in 15 games.

09/08/16DLConnor WujciakShoulderOUTWujciak (shoulder) was waived by the Eagles on Wednesday, ESPN's Field Yates reports.

Wujciak, a first-year player out of Boston College, spent the season on injured reserve after suffering a shoulder injury last August. When he returns to full strength Wujciak could be a cheap option on the free-agent market for a team in need of depth along its defensive line.
