Eagles Injury Report: Some positive signs ahead of Cowboys game - Bleeding Green Nation

The Philadelphia Eagles issued their second official injury report on Thursday before their Week 6 game against the Dallas Cowboys Sunday Night Football.

The Birds listed 13 players under LIMITED PARTICIPATION: Jason Kelce, Jordan Mailata, Landon Dickerson, Isaac Seumalo, Jake Elliott, Avonte Maddox, Josh Jobe, James Bradberry, AJ Brown, Fletcher Cox, Brandon Graham, Darius Slay, and Josh Sweat.

Kelce was seen entering the medical tent during the relatively short media part of practice. Tim McManus noted that he was “swinging” after an individual drill rep. Not great to hear…but the assumption here is that Kelce will play. He’s too tough to bet against. One may wonder if he will be able to make it through the entire game.

Mailata was back at left tackle in individual drills. He is wearing a sleeve on his injured shoulder. He seems to be on his way to play.

Dickerson and Seumalo also appear to be on track to play. Dickerson’s ability to get through the entire game is in question as he missed snaps last week and earlier in Week 3.

Elliott was seen attempting kicks for the first time since getting hurt in Week 4. The Eagles may not need to rely on Cameron Dicker this week.

Maddox has a chance to return as the Eagles’ slot cornerback this weekend.

Jobe was upgraded to limited after being listed under “Did Not Participate” on Wednesday. He has a chance to suit up and contribute on special teams.

Bradberry, Brown, Cox, Graham, Slay, and Sweat were limited due to scheduled rest. They will be good to play on Sunday.

Two players were listed under FULL PARTICIPATION: Kenneth Gainwell and Patrick Johnson.

They were upgraded after being listed under restricted on Wednesday. Johnson is set to return to the field after missing Week 5.

We’ll find out more about the Eagles’ health situation with the team required to list game statuses on Friday’s final injury report. Overall, things seem to be going the right way for the Birds.

DALLAS COWBARS INJURY REPORT (THURSDAY)

The only two changes from Wednesday to Thursday: Dak Prescott and Micah Parsons both upgraded from DNP to limited.

Today is the first time Prescott has practiced since hurting his thumb in Week 1. Does that mean he’s playing Sunday night? Not if the Cowboys are being truthful about Prescott, who needs a full week of practice before returning. Mike McCarthy said Dallas is preparing Cooper Rush as the starter. Prescott’s upgrade to limited is thought to be a good sign for him to return in Week 7.

Parsons told reporters he plans to play. DeMarcus Lawrence and Jason Peters have indicated they will be able to suit up as well.
