Position Listing
Mack Hollins
News
Hollins caught three passes for 32 yards in Sunday's 27-20 loss to the Chiefs.

After seeing only five offensive snaps in the season opener, Hollins was on the field for 17 plays in this one and saw as many targets as Nelson Agholor. The rookie is still a distant fourth on the Eagles' WR depth chart, but he showed a glimpse of his potential Sunday. Hollins could be a big factor for Philadelphia if any of Agholor, Alshon Jeffery or Torrey Smith get hurt.

Bryce Treggs
News
Treggs was waived by the Eagles on Saturday, Les Bowen of the Philadelphia Daily News reports.

Treggs was a starter in the preseason finale and finished as the most productive Eagles receiver on the night, catching four passes for 41 yards. However, it seems Philadelphia is more intrigued by the prospects of fellow youngsters Mack Hollins and Shelton Gibson. Treggs is still a candidate for the practice squad, though.

Nelson Agholor
News
Agholor caught two of three targets for 20 yards in Sunday's defeat of the Giants.

The preseason breakout candidate's contributions have diminished each week as the season has progressed, as his target share has gone from eight in Week 1 to just three in each of the last two games. At best, he is fourth in line for targets in Philadelphia and cannot be trusted for fantasy production unless Zach Ertz or Alshon Jeffery is injured.

Halapoulivaati Vaitai
News
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
News
Kendricks finished Sunday's loss to the Redskins with four solo tackles, one sack and a pass defended.

Although he played in 15 games last season, the sack was the 26-year-old's first since the 2015 season. Kendricks had a relatively light workload, as he saw just 20 snaps (38 percent) in the contest. However, he made the most of his time on the field and will look to carry that momentum into Sunday's game against the Giants.

Caleb Sturgis
News
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.

Injury
Quadriceps - Injured Reserve
Chance Warmack
No Updates
Chris Long
News
Long agreed to terms with the Eagles on Tuesday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

Long is fresh off of a Super Bowl win with the Patriots and will bring a veteran presence to Philadelphia's defensive front. He recorded 35 combined tackles, four sacks and one forced fumble in 16 games last season. According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, Long's deal is two years in length, so he will need to show he can still make plays at the age of 32 if he wishes to secure a long-term future with the Eagles beyond the next two seasons.

Nate Gerry
News
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
Injury
Knee - Injured Reserve
Kamu Grugier-Hill
News
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
News
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
News
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.

Beau Allen
News
Allen (pectoral) is clear to return to practice after passing his physical Friday, Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reports.

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.

Zach Ertz
News
Ertz caught eight of his 10 targets for 55 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 27-24 win over the Giants. He also lost a fumble.

The most targeted Eagles pass catcher on the day, Ertz doubled his team's lead with a three-yard touchdown reception in the third quarter. His fumble came at a crucial juncture, setting up a Giants touchdown drive to tie the game early in the fourth. Despite the mistake, Ertz bounced back to make a couple of key receptions to set up a field goal late in the game. He remains a key component of the team's passing attack and will continue as such next week against the Chargers.

Ronald Darby
News
Darby (ankle) has been ruled out for 4-to-6 weeks, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

This is pretty good news for Darby after he was carted off the field during Sunday's game against the Redskins, as there is no major ligament damage. With the defensive back out for at least four games, look for Patrick Robinson and Jaylen Watkins to fill in at cornerback opposite of Jalen Mills.

Injury
Ankle - Out for Week 4 at L.A. Chargers
Dom Williams
News
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.

Injury
Achilles - Injured Reserve
Justin Hamilton
No Updates
Darren Sproles
News
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.

Injury
Arm - Injured Reserve
Sidney Jones
News
Jones (Achilles) was moved to the reserve/Non-Football Injury list Friday, Zach Berman of The Inquirer reports.

Jones, on the mend from a March injury to his Achilles, is eligible to practice between Week 6 and 8. Then, he has a three-week window to be activated or he'll finish the season on injured reserve.

Injury
Achilles - Out for Week 4 at L.A. Chargers
Timmy Jernigan
News
Jernigan (ankle) wasn't listed on Wednesday's injury report and is expected to return for Sunday's game against the Redskins.

Jernigan is now clear to clog the lanes with Fletcher Cox on Philly's defensive front. He spent his last three seasons with Baltimore, racking up a combined 91 tackles and 13 sacks. The Redskins will have their hands full with Jernigan and Cox imposing their pass rushes simultaneously.

Josh Andrews
News
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
News
Watkins (hamstring) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Giants, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Watkins was injured when filling in for starter Rodney McLeod (hamstring) in Week 2 and did not practice this week. McLeod is listed as questionable, so the Eagles could potentially be without their top two free safeties, which would likely see Chris Maragos get a major increase in playing time against the Giants on Sunday.

Injury
Hamstring - Questionable for Week 4 at L.A. Chargers
Steven Means
News
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
News
Graham recorded four tackles (three solo), two sacks and a forced fumble in Sunday's victory over Washington.

The Eagles' deep defensive line came up huge to begin the season, with Graham leading the way. He also led the line in snaps, playing 43 of 63, tied with Fletcher Cox. Graham continues to be one of the top DLs in the game and will try and keep the momentum going next week against the Chiefs at home.

Stefen Wisniewski
No Updates
Alshon Jeffery
News
Jeffery caught four of eight targets for 56 yards in Sunday's 27-24 win over the Giants.

Jeffery was the most targeted Eagles wideout on the day, but he was relatively quiet as he drew some attention from Janoris Jenkins. He still managed to come up with one of the biggest plays of the game, however, hauling in a 19-yard completion to set up the winning 61-yard field goal by Jake Elliott as time expired. Jeffery still seems to be growing into his role on a new team, but he should remain a key component of the offense next week against the Chargers.

Torrey Smith
News
Smith caught four of five targets for 29 yards in Sunday's victory over the Giants.

Smith was once again a distant third in targets behind Zach Ertz and Alshon Jeffery and still hasn't connected for one of the long bombs that have always been key to the seven-year veteran's fantasy relevance. While he remains a boom-or-bust wide receiver, the bet has to be on the "bust" side each week until he shows more of a rapport with his quarterback or one of the Eagles' primary pass catchers gets hurt.

DeVante Bausby
News
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
News
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
News
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
News
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
News
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.

Trae Elston
News
The Eagles claimed Elston off waivers Wednesday, Les Bowen of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

The Eagles claimed Elston just one day after he was waived by the Bills. The 23-year-old only played special teams snaps in the Bills' first two games and will likely do the same for Philadelphia.

Shelton Gibson
News
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
News
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
No Updates
Dexter McDougle
News
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.

Isaac Seumalo
No Updates
Jake Elliott
News
Elliott made two of three field-goal tries and added three extra points in Sunday's win over the Giants.

The rookie missed from 52 yards in the third quarter but more than atoned for it with a field goal from 46 to tie the game with under a minute remaining and then the 61-yarder as time expired to win it. Having achieved legendary status in only his second game for Philadelphia, one wonders if he will cede the job back to Caleb Sturgis when the veteran returns from IR. Of course, the former Bengals practice-squad signee can't afford to keep hooking a kick left each game for that to be a realistic possibility.

Randall Goforth
Injury
Knee - ACL - Injured Reserve
Greg Ward
No Updates
Rick Lovato
News
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
News
Mills made 12 tackles and deflected two passes in Sunday's 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-league production should remain solid.

Carson Wentz
News
Wentz completed 21 of 31 passes for 176 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 27-24 win over the Giants. He also carried six times for 22 yards.

Wentz struggled to make plays down the field in this one, finishing with a miserable 5.7 yards per attempt. He managed to avoid turning the ball over after doing so three times in the first two weeks, and was also able to make a couple of nifty plays in the running game. Wentz could struggle at times this season due to a lack of elite playmakers around him, but he was coming off back-to-back games with over 300 yards through the air and will look to return to that type of production next week against the Chargers.

Billy Brown
No Updates
LeGarrette Blount
News
Blount carried 12 times for 67 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 27-24 win over the Giants.

A week after he did not carry the ball, Blount ran hard en route to a solid 5.6 yards per carry. He was especially effective on a 90-yard touchdown drive in the second quarter, piling up 39 yards before capping it off with a one-yard plunge into the end zone. Darren Sproles left the game because of an injury, leaving Blount and Wendell Smallwood to share the load with Corey Clement. It remains to be seen how the backfield touches are divvied up next week against the Chargers, but Blount should be involved and stands as good a chance as any of the backs of getting into the end zone.

Najee Goode
News
Goode re-signed with the Eagles on a one-year deal Wednesday, Aaron Kasinitz of PennLive.com 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
News
Hicks hurt his ankle Sunday against the Giants and is questionable to return.

Hicks was a workhorse through the first two weeks, playing every defensive snap (116) and recording 10 tackles (six solo). If he is able to return, expect second-year linebacker Joe Walker to play the first defensive snaps of his career.

Injury
Ankle - Questionable for Week 4 at L.A. Chargers
Jerod Evans
News
Evans (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.

Injury

Donnie Jones
No Updates
DJ Pumphrey
News
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.

Injury
Hamstring - Injured Reserve
Patrick Robinson
News
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
Injury
Undisclosed - Out for Week 4 at L.A. Chargers
Brent Celek
News
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
News
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
News
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
News
Graham (hamstring) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Giants, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Graham did not practice this week after being a game-day decision Week 2. The Eagles situation at safety is a bit complicated with Graham and Jaylen Watkins (hamstring) already ruled out and Rodney McLeod (hamstring) questionable for Sunday's game.

Injury
Hamstring - Questionable for Week 4 at L.A. Chargers
Nigel Bradham
News
Bradham had just one tackle (no solo) in Sunday's 27-13 win over the Cowboys.

Week 17 was not a good one for Bradham. He failed to get a solo tackle for the first time all season, despite playing in every one of the team's defensive snaps. Despite his rough day, Bradham finished the season as the team's leading tackler with 102 on the season, and he played in 97.1 percent of the team's defensive snaps. He also forced two fumbles and had five passes defensed, including an interception, while playing in all 16 games this season.

Fletcher Cox
News
Cox (calf) won't return to Sunday's game against the Giants.

The Eagles' depth at defensive tackle is in question since Destiny Vaeao (wrist) is inactive Sunday. Cox adds a pass-rushing element that's hard to replace, but expect to see Beau Allen to slot in for him while he starts his recovery.

Injury
Calf - Questionable for Week 4 at L.A. Chargers
Trey Burton
News
Burton caught his lone target for a 10-yard gain in Sunday's 27-20 loss to Kansas City.

Like Week 1, Burton saw the field for just 14 plays on Sunday, three fewer than second-string tight end Brent Celek. Burton didn't get his catch until the last drive of the game, which set up an Eagles touchdown that came too late to matter much in the grand scheme of things. With Celek and Zach Ertz ahead of him, it's hard to see Burton getting much action unless injuries strike the team.

Jason Peters
News
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
News
Vaeao (wrist) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Giants, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Vaeao did not practice this week and has not played since sustaining the sustaining the injury in the season opener. There remains no timetable for the 23-year-old at this point, and rookie Elijah Qualls will likely see snaps as reserve defensive tackle against the Giants on Sunday in his absence.

Injury
Wrist - Questionable for Week 4 at L.A. Chargers
Wendell Smallwood
News
Smallwood could replace Darren Sproles (knee/arm) as the Eagles' passing-down back, Zach Berman of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Given that LeGarrette Blount and undrafted rookie Corey Clement are the other healthy running backs on the roster, Smallwood is the obvious choice to fill in for Sproles, who will miss the rest of the season. Smallwood only caught one of two targets for nine yards in Sunday's 27-24 win over the Giants, but he was effective on the ground with 12 carries for 71 yards. While still likely to serve as just one part of a committee in the running game, Smallwood could push for a handful of targets per week. Blount has never caught more than 15 passes in a season, and Clement had only 29 receptions in 39 games at the University of Wisconsin. Though he only has nine receptions in 16 NFL appearances, Smallwood did catch 57 passes his final two seasons at West Virginia.

Marcus Johnson
News
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
News
Maragos signed a three year extension worth $6 million ($2.25 million guaranteed) with the Eagles on Wednesday, Adam Caplan of ESPN.com reports.

Maragos' contract extension also includes around an extra $300K with Pro Bowl incentives, as the backup safety intends on spending three more years in Philadelphia. Through 10 games so far this season, he's notched just six tackles (four solo), but serves as a veteran tool for the team's special teams unit.

Rodney McLeod
News
McLeod (hamstring) is inactive for Sunday's Week 3 matchup with the Giants, Tim McManus of ESPN.com reports.

McLeod joins fellow safeties Corey Graham (hamstring) and Jaylen Watkins (hamstring) on the inactive list this week, likely meaning Chris Maragos or Trae Elston, both third string safeties, will be forced into a starting role.

Rasul Douglas
News
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
News
Clement ran six times for 22 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win over the Giants.

Five of his six carries came after Darren Sproles was injured at the start of the second quarter, and three came in the fourth. While LeGarrette Blount and Wendell Smallwood handled the bulk of the load, the undrafted rookie showed he could contribute as well, finding the end zone from 15 yards out with less than six minutes left in the game. With Sproles slated for a multi-week absence, Clement could continue to earn more work in the Eagles' backfield.

Charles Walker
News
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.
