Position Listing
Mack Hollins
Hollins earned nine of the Eagles' 62 offensive snaps during Thursday's 28-23 victory at Carolina.

Appearing in the box score for the first time since Week 2, Hollins hauled in both of his targets for 18- and 20-yard gains in the third quarter. On most game days, he's a key component of the Eagles' special-teams unit, but his blocking ability could help him get on the field more as the season progresses, especially if an injury impacts one of the top three wide receivers.

Nelson Agholor
Agholor has three straight games with more than 50 receiving yards after catching four passes for 55 yards and a touchdown in Thursday's 28-23 win over the Panthers.

Despite averaging just five targets per game, Agholor is on pace to catch 53 passes for 856 yards and 11 touchdowns. He's one of the better downfield threats among slot receivers, combining above-average speed with an ability to make defenders miss after the catch. He'll have a nice opportunity to continue his strong work in Week 7, facing a Redskins defense that he burnt to the tune of six catches for 86 yards and a touchdown on eight targets in Week 1.

Halapoulivaati Vaitai
Vaitai (knee) wasn't listed on Wednesday's injury report.

Vaitai is expected to return to his role as Lane Johnson's backup at right tackle Sunday versus the Redskins.

Dillon Gordon
No Updates
Mychal Kendricks
Kendricks recorded 17 tackles (12 solo, 5 assisted) in Thursday's victory at Carolina.

He saw 55 snaps, his highest number of the season and made them count, as he almost doubled his tackle total for the year. Perhaps this sort of monster game will allow the Eagles to take it easy with Jordan Hicks' nagging ankle injury. However, Hicks will have extra time to recover since Philadelphia doesn't play until Monday night in Week 7, so this remains a situation to monitor in IDP leagues.

Caleb Sturgis
Sturgis (hip flexor) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Sturgis has been given a timetable of four weeks after suffering the injury in his plant leg. With the open roster spot, the team will sign Jake Elliott off of the Bengals' practice squad to fill in for Sturgis in his absence.

Quadriceps - Injured Reserve
Chance Warmack
No Updates
Chris Long
Long (foot) is active for Thursday's game against the Panthers, Zach Berman of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Long was limited in practice this week due to a foot injury but will take the field Thursday night nonetheless. The veteran defensive end has been averaging a little less than 25 defensive snaps per game, and that number could shrink Thursday should the Eagles decide to limit his playing time.

Nate Gerry
Gerry signed with the Eagles' practice squad Wednesday.

The 2017 fifth-round pick recorded four tackles in three preseason games but was unable to earn a special teams role with the Eagles.

Aziz Shittu
Knee - Injured Reserve
Kamu Grugier-Hill
Grugier-Hill (illness) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Ravens.

Gruigier-Hill dealt with an illness that kept him sidelined during Thursday's practice, but he was able to return Friday without limitations. He'll provide depth at outside linebacker behind Mychal Kendricks.

Malcolm Jenkins
Jenkins had two tackles in Sunday's win over Dallas.

Jenkins finishes the season with 72 tackles, 1.0 sack, and nine passes defensed, including three interceptions in 16 games played. His numbers are down on the whole from last season but he did manage to play in a team-high 99.9 percent the Eagles defensive snaps.

Nick Foles
Foles (elbow) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice.

Foles has been recovering for over a month now, but he's set to back up Carson Wentz against the Redskins on Sunday.

Kenjon Barner
Barner rushed five times for seven yards and caught one of two targets for nine yards in Thursday's win over Carolina.

He out-snapped Corey Clement 22-10 and out-touched the rookie 6-2 as both continue to fill in for Wendell Smallwood, who missed a second straight game with swelling in his knee. Meanwhile, LeGarrette Blount has grabbed a firm hold as the lead back in this offense, rendering Barner and Clement moot for fantasy except in very deep leagues.

Beau Allen
Allen (foot) is active for Thursday's game against the Panthers, Zach Berman of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Allen is one of several dinged up defensive lineman playing for the Eagles on Thursday night, as Chris Long and Fletcher Cox also found themselves on the injury report this week. Allen's snap count has fluctuated all season depending on teammates' availability, but it seems more likely than not that he'll see a fair amount of snaps Thursday barring any setbacks with his foot injury.

Zach Ertz
Ertz logged 49 out of a possible 62 snaps on offense in Thursday's 28-23 win over the Panthers.

In the process, Ertz caught two of his season-low five targets for 18 yards, but he made his grabs count, as both went for TDs. Prior to Thursday's game, the tight end was averaging 9.6 targets per game, so he's a candidate to see more volume in Week 7, when Philadelphia faces Washington in the NFL's Monday night game.

Ronald Darby
Eagles coach Doug Pederson said Wednesday that the Eagles are targeting the Week 7 matchup with the Redskins for Darby's (ankle) return to action, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Pederson labeled the Oct. 23 game as a "soft" return date for Darby, whose status will remain murky until he's able to practice in some capacity. Darby has been sidelined since dislocating his right ankle in the season-opening win over the Redskins, leaving the Eagles thin in the secondary.

Ankle - Questionable for Week 7 vs. Washington
Dom Williams
Williams (Achilles) has reverted to the Eagles' injured reserve list.

Williams was waived/injury in early May and reverted to IR after clearing waivers. While the severity of his Achilles injury isn't clear, he could be out for a while if it's anything remotely serious.

Achilles - Injured Reserve
Justin Hamilton
The Eagles promoted Hamilton from the practice squad to their active roster Saturday.

Hamilton, a second year defensive tackle out of Louisiana-Lafayette, is set to make his NFL debut Sunday against the Chargers. The Eagles are thin on the line with Fletcher Cox and Destiny Vaeao already ruled out, so Hamilton figures to see some rotational reps depending on game flow.

Darren Sproles
The Eagles placed Sproles (arm/knee) on injured reserve Monday.

Diagnosed with a broken arm and a torn ACL, the 34-year-old running back faces a long rehab process and might even consider retirement. The Eagles are left without a proven pass catcher in the backfield, though Wendell Smallwood did have 57 receptions over his final two seasons (2014-15) at West Virginia. As such, Smallwood is the best bet to take over Sproles' role on passing downs, which could in turn open up a bit more rushing work for LeGarrette Blount and Corey Clement. The Eagles selected Donnel Pumphrey (hamstring) in the fourth round of the 2017 draft to groom him as Sproles' eventual replacement, but the rookie is already on injured reserve and isn't expected to return this season. The Eagles might now considering bringing Pumphrey back from IR if his hamstring heals quickly.

Arm - Injured Reserve
Sidney Jones
Jones (Achilles) is eligible to begin practicing Tuesday, but a more accurate timeline for activation might be in December, Les Bowen of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

The Eagles have six weeks to activate their second-round pick from the NFI list and three subsequent weeks to add him to the active roster to avoid having him revert to injured reserve for the rest of the season. However, a source close to the team says Jones is not close to practicing yet, and head coach Doug Pederson has said the Eagles will take their time with the rookie cornerback. That kind of window could mean Jones won't appear in a game until the last month of the regular season and potentially fail to see any action at all this year.

Achilles - Out for Week 7 vs. Washington
Timmy Jernigan
Jernigan (foot) returned to practice as a full participant Thursday.

Jernigan suffered a left heel contusion in Sunday's victory over the Chargers and subsequently watched Wednesday's practice from the sideline as a result. The team never appeared to be concerned regarding his status for Week 5, and his return to practice Thursday seemingly supports that notion. Beau Allen would presumably be in line to fill in at defensive tackle should Jernigan suffer any setbacks.

Josh Andrews
Andrews (hand) wasn't listed on Wednesday's injury report.

Andrews underwent surgery on this hand just a few weeks earlier, and now he's expected to return to a reserve role against the Redskins on Sunday.

Jaylen Watkins
Watkins (hamstring) is inactive for Thursday's game against the Panthers, Zach Berman of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Watkins will his miss his fourth straight contest due to a hamstring injury, which is a bit surprising considering he was a full participant in practice earlier this week. Nonetheless, look for Chris Maragos to continue to serve as the main backup to starting safety Malcolm Jenkins.

Hamstring - Questionable for Week 7 vs. Washington
Steven Means
Means and the Eagles agreed to a one-year contract extension on Wednesday.

Means played eight games with the Eagles last season. His extension this close to final roster cuts seems to indicate he will make the team. He projects to add depth on the line entering the season.

Brandon Graham
Graham (shoulder) returned to Thursday's game against the Panthers in the fourth quarter.

Graham injured his shoulder early in the fourth quarter but was able to quickly reenter the contest after receiving some treatment on the sidelines. He appears to be good to go moving forward.

Stefen Wisniewski
No Updates
Alshon Jeffery
Jeffery notched 56 of the Eagles' 62 offensive snaps during Thursday's 28-23 win at Carolina.

Jeffery's workload was the most significant of any Eagles' skill-position player not named Carson Wentz, resulting in a team-high 10 targets and 71 receiving yards. While he wasn't on the other end of Wentz's three touchdowns, Jeffery ranks a close second to Zach Ertz (two TDs on Thursday) in terms of targets on the season (53 versus 48). As a result, Jeffery should get in the end zone again in due time due to his career TD rate of 8.5 percent.

Torrey Smith
Smith caught one of two targets for six yards in Thursday's win over the Panthers.

He made his catch on the second play of the game, was targeted once early in the second quarter, and then wasn't heard from again. What's even more disturbing for Smith's owners is he was out-snapped by Nelson Agholor 48-35, after seeing five fewer snaps in Week 5. The 28-year-old receiver has been ineffective thus far this season, and even though coach Doug Pederson recently said that Smith still had a role in the Eagles' offense, this usage indicates otherwise. He cannot be relied on in fantasy except as a deep-league desperation play.

DeVante Bausby
Chiefs cornerback DeVante Bausby is scheduled to undergo surgery Thursday to repair his collarbone, reports The Kansas City Star. Bausby broke his collarbone last week while practicing with the Chiefs.

The Chiefs announced Bausby has been waived.

Byron Marshall
The Eagles signed Marshall to their practice squad Monday, Bob Grotz of The Delaware County Daily Times reports.

Marshall failed the make the 53-man roster, as the Eagles opted instead to keep rookies Donnel Pumphrey and Corey Clement as the depth backs. The second-year back now will spend the season on practice squad but could be activated if injuries arise.

Elijah Qualls
Qualls (groin) wasn't listed on Wednesday's injury report and is expected to play Sunday against the Redskins.

The 2017 sixth-round pick was projected to be picked earlier, but he put on extra weight and seems to lack the consistency needed to be a starter in the league. Although Qualls is cleared to play Sunday, he's not expected to see much time

Brandon Brooks
Brooks (ankle) was left off of Wednesday's injury report and is expected to return Sunday against the Redskins.

Brooks wasn't expected to miss any games, but his official return to full participation means he'll be positioned at starting right guard Sunday.

Vinny Curry
Curry is absent from Tuesday's practice due to an illness, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

After opening up OTAs last week with first-team reps at right defensive end, Curry is not with the team to start this week's workouts. The illness, however, is likely not severe, and the defensive should return to work with the team in the coming days. The six-year NFL veteran is coming off a 2016 campaign where he battled a knee injury but still managed to post a career-high 26 tackles.

Shelton Gibson
Gibson (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's Week 2 tilt versus the Chiefs, the team's official site reports.

The 2017 fifth-round pick will have the inactive tag for the second time in as many weeks to open the season. Gibson has a ways to go to shed the label, as he currently sits sixth on the Eagles' wide receiver depth chart.

Derek Barnett
Barnett (leg) was left off of Wednesday's injury report and is expected back for Sunday's matchup with the Redskins.

The 2017 first-round pick has been held out mainly for precautionary reasons. Barnett is still marked behind proven defensive ends Vinny Curry and Brandon Graham in the depth chart, so he'll have to earn every snap he gets.

Lane Johnson
Johnson (concussion) practiced Tuesday, Zach Berman of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Johnson has passed concussion protocol testing, rejoining his teammates on the filed Tuesday. Barring in any major setbacks, the tackle should be ready for Monday night's tilt with the Redskins.

Dexter McDougle
McDougle was traded to the Eagles on Sunday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

McDougle, a former 2014 third-round pick, should provide Philadelphia with some added support for their secondary. While it's unlikely he'll start, McDougle has the chance to earn some run with the first team defense as a nickel if he stays healthy.

Alex McCalister
McCalister (hamstring) was waived by the Eagles on Friday after both parties came to terms on an injury settlement.

McCalister was looking to earn a role providing depth on the defensive line before going down with a hamstring injury. He will now look for a new opportunity once he returns to health.

Hamstring - Questionable for Week 7 vs. Washington
Isaac Seumalo
No Updates
Jake Elliott
Elliott made both of his field-goal attempts as well as two extra points in Thursday's win over the Panthers.

With makes from 48 and 50 yards in this one, he now has a streak of 10 straight field goals made. The Eagles face Washington at home next Monday night, and he should continue to be a good bet for further production out of the kicker position.

D.J. Killings
The Patriots released Killings (undisclosed) on Wednesday on an injury settlement.

Killings ended up on injured reserve with an unspecified injury and is now free to sign elsewhere, but is most likely a practice-squad candidate.

Randall Goforth
Knee - ACL - Injured Reserve
Greg Ward
No Updates
Rick Lovato
The Eagles traded veteran long snapper Jon Dorenbos to the Saints Monday, as Lovato has won the role for the upcoming season, Bob Ford of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Lovato has big shoes to fill, as he takes over for the Eagles' longest-tenured player. An injury to the veteran long snapper in the latter portion of the 2016 season opened up the opportunity for Lovato, an undrafted free agent in 2015. The Old Dominion product was working for his father's sub shop when he got the call to work out for the Eagles. He will now look to make his fourth NFL stop stick.

Jalen Mills
Mills made 12 tackles and deflected two passes in Sunday's 27-24 victory over the Giants.

Nine of the tackles were of the solo variety. This marked the second time this season Mills led the Eagles in tackles. As long as opposing offenses view him as an easy target, his IDP production should remain solid.

Carson Wentz
Wentz produced his third multi-touchdown game of the season in Thursday's 28-23 win over the Panthers.

Wentz only completed 16 of 30 passes for 222 yards, but he made up for it with a trio of touchdowns and 25 yards on the ground. His 133 rushing yards nearly match his total of 150 from all of last season, and he's on pace for 4,224 passing yards and 35 touchdowns as the Eagles prepare for a Week 7 matchup with the Redskins on Monday Night Football. He threw for 307 yards and a pair of scores in a road game against Washington in Week 1.

Billy Brown
No Updates
LeGarrette Blount
Blount was on the field for 30 of a possible 62 snaps on offense in Thursday's 28-23 win over the Panthers.

In the process, Blount ran 14 times for 67 yards, while also cashing in on a two-point conversion. Blount -- who racked up 18 scores while with the Patriots in 2016 -- has logged 70 carries for 390 yards through six games to date, with two total TDs in that span. He'll look to find the end zone again in Week 7 when Philadelphia faces Washington in the NFL's Monday night game.

Najee Goode
Goode re-signed with the Eagles on a one-year deal Wednesday, Aaron Kasinitz of reports.

Goode played in all 16 games in 2016, recording 10 combined tackles and providing solid coverage as a special teams player. If he is able to ultimately make the Eagles' 53-man roster at the end of the preseason, he should find himself in a similar special teams role this coming campaign.

Jordan Hicks
Head coach Doug Pederson said that Hicks (ankle) should be able to practice next week, Martin Frank of The Delaware News Journal reports.

Hicks has been nursing an ankle injury for weeks now, and it seems like he aggravated it in Thursday's matchup with the Panthers. The 25-year-old middle linebacker has recorded 28 tackles (19 solo) through the first six games of the season, but he hasn't been as prevalent in coverage as he was last season, when he broke up 11 passes.

Ankle - Questionable for Week 7 vs. Washington
Jerod Evans
The Packers signed Evans to the practice squad Tuesday.

The addition of Evans will round out the quarterback room in Green Bay in the absence of Aaron Rodgers (collarbone). After suffering a foot injury during the Eagles' offseason program, Evans has found himself in an ideal situation for a potential appearance at some point this season, especially if anything befalls Brett Hundley or Joe Callahan.

Donnie Jones
No Updates
DJ Pumphrey
Eagles coach Doug Pederson confirmed that Pumphrey (hamstring) won't return from injured reserve to play this season, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

A 2017 fourth-round pick, Pumphrey built some hype during offseason practices but failed to impress during training camp and the preseason. He was inactive for Week 1 and then tore his hamstring during a Week 2 practice, which conveniently allowed the Eagles to stash him on injured reserve. Even if he's healthy enough to eventually return, Pumphrey likely will be kept on IR for the rest of the season, with eyes toward earning a role in 2018. The Eagles seemingly drafted him as an eventual replacement for 34-year-old Darren Sproles, but the workout metrics and eye test both suggest Pumphrey simply isn't the same caliber of athlete.

Hamstring - Injured Reserve
Patrick Robinson
Robinson (groin) participated in the Eagles' offseason program, Aaron Kasinitz of The Harrisburg Patriot-News reports. "It feels great to be healthy," Robinson said. "Just being able to do the things I've done over the years and trying to do everything I can to help this team."

Robinson missed nine games in 2016 due to a groin injury and finished the season with one of the worst stat lines of his career. Now healthy again, the 29-year-old is primed to open the 2017 campaign in a starting role.

Tre Sullivan
Undisclosed - Out for Week 7 vs. Washington
Brent Celek
Celek caught one of two targets for 11 yards in Sunday's win over Washington.

With Zach Ertz and Carson Wentz's rapport evident since late last season, Celek is more of a blocking tight end for the Eagles at this point in his career. It is worth noting that the eight-year veteran saw more snaps and targets than Trey Burton, who had surpassed Celek as a receiving option last season. Nevertheless, Celek probably won't contribute much to fantasy teams this season.

Nate Sudfeld
Sudfeld agreed to join the Eagles' practice squad Sunday, CSN Philly reports.

Sudfeld was waived by the Redskins on Saturday as part of the team's final roster cuts. With Philadelphia currently having only Nick Foles on their roster to back up starter Carson Wentz, Sudfeld could potentially be promoted for depth purposes in case of injury to either quarterback.

Joe Walker
Walker had a big day on Day 2 of training camp, intercepting a pass and deflecting another which also resulted in an interception, the Eagles' official site reports.

The 2016 seventh-round pick missed all of his rookie season after tearing his ACL last August but looks to be fully healthy now. On Tuesday, he looked "explosive, violent, and stout at the point of attack" in drills and made some big plays. Known for his athleticism coming out of Oregon, Walker is someone to keep an eye on in IDP drafts this summer.

Corey Graham
Graham (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Cardinals, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Graham was a full participant in practice this week, so the expectation is that the safety will be active and ready to go for Sunday's contest. With Rodney McLeod (hamstring) expected to play this week as well, Graham will likely serve as a backup in the secondary.

Nigel Bradham
Bradham logged ten tackles (seven solo) and two passes defensed in Thursday's victory over Carolina.

He also played more snaps (78) than he has all year. With Jordan Hicks battling an ankle injury, the 28-year-old linebacker could be depended upon even more going forward. The Eagles match up at home against the Redskins in Week 7.

Fletcher Cox
Cox (calf) is active for Thursday's game against the Panthers, Zac Berman of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Cox was a full participant in practice all week, so it's not all too surprising he'll be out on the field Thursday night. Since the veteran is returning from a two-game absence, the Eagles may look to limit his snap count. If that is the case, look for Beau Allen and Justin Hamilton to see expanded reps.

Trey Burton
Burton caught one pass for nine yards in Thursday's win over the Panthers.

He played just 13 snaps, a pretty standard week for him. The third-string tight end has yet to be targeted more than twice or see more than 19 offensive snaps in any game this season. He continues to be the fallback option in the receiving game for Zach Ertz.

Jason Peters
Peters (groin) is absent from the Eagles' injury report Wednesday, Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Peters sustained a minor groin injury in Sunday's season opener against the Redskins, but after logging a full practice Wednesday, he should be good to go moving forward.

Destiny Vaeao
Vaeao (wrist) has been ruled inactive for Thursday's matchup with the Panthers, Zach Berman of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Vaeao will miss his third straight contest due a to a wrist injury, leaving the Eagles with Beau Allen and Justin Hamilton as the main reserves at defensive tackle. Vaeao was limited in practice this week -- so he is making progress -- but it seems as if the shortened week was simply too quick of a turnaround to get the second-year pro ready to play.

Wrist - Questionable for Week 7 vs. Washington
Wendell Smallwood
Smallwood (knee) participated in Tuesday's practice and expects to play in Monday's game against the Redskins, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

This is the first time Smallwood practiced since Week 4, and he should be ready to return to the field barring any setbacks during this week. Eagles running backs have seen a sharp decline in usage in the passing game with both Smallwood and Darren Sproles (arm/knee) out of the lineup, but that could change upon Smallwood's likely return in Week 7.

Knee - Questionable for Week 7 vs. Washington
Jason Kelce
Kelce (knee) was a full participant at Thursday's practice.

Kelce sat out Wednesday's session with a knee injury, but his full participation Thursday indicates that he is trending towards playing in Week 4's matchup against the Chargers.

Marcus Johnson
Johnson (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's Week 2 tilt versus the Chiefs, the team's official site reports.

The former practice squad player sits fifth on the Eagles' wide receiver depth chart, so his status isn't a surprise. Johnson is likely at least a couple of injuries away from his first taste of NFL regular-season game action.

Chris Maragos
Maragos has been ruled out of Thursday's game against the Panthers with a knee injury.

Maragos suffered the knee injury while on punt coverage in the fourth quarter. He was able to walk off the field under his own power, but we'll await word from the Eagles with regards to the exact nature of his injury.

Knee - Questionable for Week 7 vs. Washington
Rodney McLeod
McLeod (hamstring) was listed as active for Sunday's game against the Chargers.

McLeod played all week at full speed so it's no surprise that he's playing Sunday. The veteran safety is listed as a starter, but he hasn't played many snaps since logging 63 in Week 1 against the Redskins. With only six tackles posted this season, it's hard to see him as an IDP threat at this time.

Rasul Douglas
Douglas, the Eagles' third-round selection, was on the field for the team's nickel formation in the first week of OTAs, Dave Zangaro of CSN Philadelphia reports.

Returning starter Jalen Mills and offseason acquisition Patrick Robinson started in the base package, with Mills moving inside in the nickel and Douglas replacing him outside. The rookie apparently acquitted himself well, and if he continues to do so, he could easily move into the starting lineup if Robinson continues his injury-prone ways or underwhelms as he has up to now. Douglas could also face competition from Ron Brooks (quad) and 2017 second-round pick Sidney Jones (Achilles) once they recover from their injuries, however.

Corey Clement
Clement carried the ball twice for a total of one yard in Thursday's win over the Panthers.

He wasn't targeted in the passing game. The undrafted rookie didn't do much with his touches and saw fewer than half as many snaps as Kenjon Barner. With Wendell Smallwood (back) working his way back from injury possibly in time for next Monday night's contest, Clement has a long way to climb up the depth chart to fantasy relevance.

Charles Walker
Walker, 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.
