03/07/17RBRyan MathewsNeckQUESTIONABLEEagles GM Howie Roseman said last week that Mathews was doing well as he recovers from surgery on his herniated disk, Calkins Media reports. "Ryan is doing great and we full expect him to be ready to play," Roseman noted at the Combine. "He's under contract and it's as simple as that at this time."

It has been speculated that Mathews will be released to bring the Eagles $4 million in cap relief, but Roseman would not comment on the situation since league rules prohibit cutting an injured player. The running back will be entering his age-30 season in 2017 and has always struggled with injuries and ball-control issues, but he should be healthy by the time next season begins and able to contribute wherever he ends up. Wendell Smallwood (knee) and Darren Sproles remain in the fold for the Eagles, but the club is likely to try and bring in additional help via free agency or the draft, if Mathews is in fact let go once he's healthy, according to Philly.com.

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 SmallwoodKneeQUESTIONABLEWith Ryan Mathews (neck) likely to be released, Smallwood (knee) and Darren Sproles will be left as the leaders of the Philadelphia backfield, CSN Philadelphia reports.

The Eagles are expected to release Mathews once he can pass a physical, which could be a matter of weeks or months. Smallwood and Sproles both figure to have roles next season, but the team likely also hopes to acquire a bigger back to replace Mathews -- be it through free agency or the draft. Smallwood had 77 carries for 312 yards (4.1 YPC) and a touchdown in 13 games as a rookie, adding six catches for 55 yards on 12 targets. He missed the final three weeks of the year with a Grade 2 MCL sprain, but the issue should clear up before the start of OTAs, if it hasn't healed already. Smallwood's 2017 outlook largely will depend on Philadelphia's other transactions in the coming months.

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.

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.
