Grugier-Hill (thumb) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice.
Grugier-Hill suffered a thumb injury during Philadelphia's win over Jacksonville in Week 8, and appears to have fully recovered during the team's bye. The depth linebacker is on track to suit up against the Cowboys on Sunday.
Grugier-Hill exited in the first quarter of Sunday's game against the Jaguars with a thumb injury and is questionable to return, Mike Kaye of NJ.com reports.
A depth linebacker for the Eagles, Grugier-Hill's presence will most be missed on special teams if he's sidelined for the remainder of the contest.
Grugier-Hill is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Colts with a groin injury, Zack Rosenblatt of NJ.com reports.
Grugier-Hill was not listed on the injury report prior to Friday, so the specifics of the injury remains unclear. D.J. Alexander should serve as the team's reserve option at weak-side linebacker behind Nigel Bradham should Grugier-Hill be unable to play.
Grugier-Hill played 45 snaps or 63 percent of the total in Thursday's preseason loss to Cleveland.
Grugier-Hill got the start and all the meaningful snaps as the Eagles' weakside linebacker. The former special-teams player has made plays and been around the ball constantly in camp, racking up 13 tackles in three preseason games so far. Even if he doesn't lock down the starting WILL role, the Eastern Illinois product looks like he'll be part of the mix.
Grugier-Hill has played only 85 defensive snaps for the Eagles this season, serving primarily as a special teams player. The 23-year-old should serve a similar role with Philadephia in 2018, assuming he again makes the team's 53-man roster.
