Davis had joined the Eagles' practice squad earlier in October before being caught up in a numbers game and ultimately getting released. With Nate Gerry moving up to the 53-man roster to provide added depth at linebacker, the Eagles will once again have room for Davis. The undrafted rookie out of James Madison will likely need an injury or two to hit the Eagles' receiving corps before earning his own promotion to the active roster.
He continues to get more playing time as well as attention from his quarterback as Sunday marked the rookie's highest percentage of snaps played this season (26 percent) and his third straight contest with at least one target. Torrey Smith was once again held without a catch, so the opportunity is there for the former Tar Heel to move up the depth chart. However, there are rumors that the Eagles are in the market for a receiver before the Oct. 31 trade deadline, and even if the team doesn't acquire one, expectations should be tempered for Hollins with Denver on tap for Week 9 followed by a Week 10 bye.
Thirty-five of the yards came on a deep ball from Nick Foles that set up the Eagles' final touchdown of the game, well into garbage time. Prior to that, the third-year pro was unable to get in on the blowout, seeing just one other deep ball and two short targets from Carson Wentz. The former Trojan will try to rebound after the bye with a much juicier matchup against Dallas in Week 11.
Vaitai is expected to return to his role as Lane Johnson's backup at right tackle Sunday versus the Redskins.
Kendricks was inactive for Monday night's victory over the Redskins, and the additional rest appears to have paid off. The Eagles could ill afford another injury to their linebacking corp, with starting middle linebacker Jordan Hicks lost for the season with a ruptured Achilles.
Sturgis was moved to IR after he came out of the Eagles' Week 1 win over the Redskins with a left quad strain. The injury was only expected to keep Sturgis out for four weeks, but even though he's presumably at or near full strength at this juncture, it doesn't sound like the Eagles are eager to bring him back onto the 53-man roster. That's largely due to the success of Sturgis' replacement at kicker, Jake Elliott, who has knocked down 17 of 20 field-goal attempts -- including five makes from 50-plus yards -- and 24 of 27 extra-point tries since being signed Sept. 12.
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.
Gerry, a fifth-round pick of the Eagles back in April who landed on the practice squad after being waived at final roster cuts during training camp, will take the 53-man roster spot of Chris Maragos (knee), who was placed on injured reserve. A safety in college, Gerry converted to linebacker in camp and will continue to practice at that position upon joining the roster. However, if Gerry suits up on game days, it's likely that he'll see most of his snaps on special teams rather than defense.
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.
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.
Foles has been recovering for over a month now, but he's set to back up Carson Wentz against the Redskins on Sunday.
Barner has been available for each of the Eagles' past five outings, but his special-teams snaps (49) have outpaced those on offense by two. As a result, he's totaled 12 carries for 34 yards and three catches (on four targets) for 20 yards on the season. Following the addition of Jay Ajayi via trade Tuesday, Barner is now in danger of being a regular on the inactive list, if he's not cut outright.
Allen tore his pectoral muscle during the offseason and has spent training camp on the Physically Unable to Perform list as a result. Expect the Eagles to ease the 25-year-old back into the swing of things in order to avoid aggravating the injury. Allen projects as a rotational tackle on the defensive line.
A true game-time decision in the Eagles' last game on Nov. 5, Ertz was ultimately held out when he didn't respond well to a pregame workout. Heading into practice Wednesday, he told Zach Berman of The Philadelphia Inquirer that he "felt good" after participating in Monday's session and Tuesday's workout, forecasting his uncapped return Wednesday. Ertz's focus can now turn to Sunday's matchup in Dallas, whose defense has surrendered 7.6 YPT and three touchdowns to tight ends this season.
This marks the first time Darby has practiced in full fashion since he dislocated his ankle in Week 1. Barring a setback over the final two days of practice this week, Darby should be good to go for Sunday's divisional matchup with the Cowboys, strengthening a pass defense that has been one of the few weaknesses for an 8-1 Eagles squad this season.
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.
Hamilton played three games for the Eagles this season, his first action since entering the league in 2015. He was able to record four tackles (two solo) and a half sack in his limited action.
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.
Jones has spent all season on the Non-Football Injury list and has yet to rejoin practicing with his team. He'll have to practice two weeks after being activated off the NFI list before he's able to see the field in a game. This means that he'd need to return to practice this week just to have a chance at playing in Week 13. While the rookie corner is on track with his recovery, a late-season return may be more costly than beneficial for an Eagles team that currently holds the No. 1 seed in the NFC, meaning Jones would hold off his NFL debut until 2018.
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.
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.
Graham is approaching his career high of 6.5 sacks, and he's only played eight games. His tackle count is troubling, though, with just 20 (13 solo) on the season, meaning his IDP value is held up by his sack count, and Graham has had three games without a sack this season. Facing the Broncos in Week 9 bodes well for Graham, though, since quarterback Trevor Siemian has been sacked on 9.2 percent of his dropbacks, ranking 32nd in the league.
Jeffery was a surprising addition to the Eagles' injury report Thursday after the ankle injury rendered him a limited participant in practice, but based on the wideout's comments, it's not anything that he considers serious. His full participation in the Eagles' final practice of the week would offer fantasy owners further validation that Jeffery will suit up Sunday, so his activity during Friday's session bears watching. Jeffery saw 11 targets -- his second-highest total of the season -- in the Eagles' last game against the Broncos in Week 9, hauling in six passes for 84 yards and two scores.
Smith finished with zero catches and one target for a second straight game, essentially serving as nothing more than a downfield decoy. He lost snaps to Marcus Johnson and Mack Hollins, but Smith did at least contribute by drawing a big pass interference penalty. His fortunes are unlikely to change much Week 9 against the Broncos.
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
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.
Curry is averaging four tackles per game so far this season and he is now up to two sacks on the year. He will look to carry that momentum into Sunday's showdown with the Broncos.
The move is relatively surprising, as Jones-Quartey started 12 games for the Bears last season. However, with a plethora of safety options the team has opted to go elsewhere. Although he did not make enough of an impression in Chicago's camp, the 24-year-old presumably has a good chance to be claimed off waivers by another team.
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.
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.
Johnson cleared the league's concussion protocol earlier this week and was a full participant at practice. The 27-year-old looks ready to go for Monday night's divisional matchup with the Redskins.
Elliott made good from 45 yards on his only field-goal try. While the Eagles' offensive onslaught allowed him to rack up the extra points, Elliott's miss came after he failed on two extra points the game prior, perhaps signaling something to monitor going forward. That being said, with 75 points through eight games, Elliott is tied for fourth in scoring thus far, proving plenty valuable despite his recent miscues.
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.
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.
The rookie, who was taken in the seventh round, worked his way up the depth chart in training camp, and found a role with the team providing depth at cornerback. While he failed to tally an interception, the 22-year-old showed he had a nose for the ball by knocking away seven passes during the season. He is under contract for three more seasons, at an affordable price, so the Eagles figure to continue using Mills in their plans going forward.
Wentz could have padded his numbers had he not been pulled in the fourth quarter with Philly up by multiple scores. Wentz looked like he was playing chess while a top-10 Broncos defense was playing checkers, selling a number of play fakes before connecting with his targets on numerous downfield throws. After taking some lumps earlier in the season, Wentz has now tossed 17 touchdowns against just three picks in his last five games and looks like a bonafide MVP candidate heading into the the bye.
Sunday's game snapped Blount's six-game streak of at least a dozen carries. Part of that can be attributed to Philly incorporating some of its lesser-used backs while nursing a multi-score lead for much of the game, but there should be some concern that trade acquistion Jay Ajayi saw just one fewer touch and ran for more yardage on his touchdown rush than Blount had in the entire game. Blount is not scoring at anywhere near the pace that he did in New England last season, and he now figures to see a reduction in usage in what has suddenly become a very crowded Eagles backfield.
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.
Hicks appeared in just two plays Monday before being carted off the field with the season-ending injury, which will require surgery. It's expected that Hicks will be placed on injured reserve later this week, likely paving the way for Najee Goode to enter the starting lineup on a full-time basis. Hicks, a valuable three-down player who excelled in coverage, will finish his third NFL campaign with 28 tackles and one fumble recovery in seven games.
Beatty most recently played six games with the Giants in 2016, which came after he missed the entire 2015 season with a torn pectoral muscle. The veteran will help add depth to an offensive line that will be without its top tackle, Jason Peters (knee), for the rest of the season.
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.
Expected to serve as a backup in the secondary in 2017 after signing a one-year contract with the Eagles in March, Robinson has been deployed in a prominent role throughout the season after top cornerback Ronald Darby dislocated his right ankle in Week 1. It looks as though Robinson could be at risk of missing his first game of the season in Week 9 against the Broncos, but the Eagles will track his progress throughout the week and see if he's able to pass through all phases of the protocol. Even if Robinson is cleared to suit up, he could be headed back to a nickel or dime role in the Eagles' 4-3 defensive scheme in the event Darby is able to return from a seven-game absence.
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.
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.
After being acquired from the Dolphins prior to the Oct. 31 trade deadline, Ajayi made his Eagles debut just five days later in a win over the Broncos and shined while playing only 17 snaps, logging 77 yards and a touchdown on eight carries. With a bye week to better familiarize himself with the Eagles' playbook, Ajayi should see a steady uptick in his snaps Sunday against the Cowboys, which will likely equate to fewer opportunities for the likes of LeGarrette Blount and Corey Clement. Blount may still garner the start at running back, but Ajayi's three-down skill set and superior explosiveness would seemingly make him the better fantasy play of the two.
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.
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.
It was Bradham's first sack since Week 15 of 2016. His tackle production has dipped since recording a season-high 10 in Week 6 at Carolina, with just 12 over the last three games combined. Nevertheless, he led all Philadelphia linebackers in snaps Sunday and still has a solid floor in IDP leagues.
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.
With Zach Ertz nursing his hamstring injury, Burton was still out-snapped by Brent Celek 54-47, and each saw the same amount of targets. This continues a season-long trend of Burton and Celek splitting work that Ertz doesn't get, with Celek seeing slightly more playing time due to his better blocking ability. Ertz was a game-time decision in this one, and with a Week 10 bye, ought to have healed sufficiently to be able to play against Dallas in Week 11. Should that not be the case however, fantasy owners can expect Burton and Celek to continue to share tight end duties fairly evenly.
Peters was placed on injured reserve last week and will miss the rest of the season while recovering from the procedure, which could limit his activity by the time training camp rolls around next summer. Given the extensive recovery timetable he'll face and his advanced age (he'll turn 36 in January), Peters' time as one of the NFL's elite left tackles could very well be over.
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.
He saw a season-low six offensive snaps but got carries on five of them. Still, despite coach Doug Pederson's claims to the contrary, Smallwood's role in the offense is trending down, and Corey Clement going off for three touchdowns won't help. With a bye coming up in Week 10 and newly-acquired Jay Ajayi sure to take on an even larger role thereafter, fantasy owners have little reason to hold on to the 23-year-old going forward.
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.
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.
The 32-year-old Ellerbe will offer the Eagles some experienced depth at linebacker, where the team was in need of another body after Jordan Hicks (Achilles) was moved to injured reserve in late October. Ellerbe, who has played in 77 career games (42 starts), has been out of football since August after the Saints elected to release him.
The performance marks McLeod's fifth straight contest with a pass defensed and second in a row with an interception. The Virginia product played all but one defensive snap in this game and seems to be fully recovered from the hamstring injury that hampered him earlier in the season.
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.
The blowout nature of the contest probably played a major factor, but Clement ended up playing 28 of the Eagles' 69 offensive snaps to outpace the team's other four active running backs. Clement was able to capitalize on the opportunities he earned, but unless the Eagles' next contest Week 11 against the Cowboys proves similarly noncompetitive, it's unlikely he'll turn in a third consecutive game of double-digit carries. New pickup Jay Ajayi is expected to gain more familiarity with the Eagles' playbook and take on a larger role in the offense after the bye week, while starter LeGarrette Blount also should be in store for slightly heftier workloads in most weeks than the 16 snaps he managed Sunday. That likely leaves little more than change-of-pace work available for Clement.
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.
