Jalen Hurts Remains Off Injury Report
While the Thursday injury report for the Philadelphia Eagles ahead of Week 8 is a bit more crowded than the previous day, only one player’s playing status looks to be in jeopardy.
Cornerback Bradley Roby (shoulder) was listed as out for the second day in the row after missing Week 7. Head Coach Nick Sirianni previously called him week-to-week after he exited Week 6 early.
Three new players, all defensive starters, were an addition to the list, but were all limited: cornerback James Bradberry (shoulder), Zach Cunningham (ankle), and Jordan Davis (hamstring).
Despite all the new additions, Jalen Hurts remains off any injury report despite wearing a knee break in the second half of the win over the Dolphins.
There was no change in status to Milton Williams (heel), who remained limited, and Reed Blankenship (ribs), who practiced fully and seems ready to go alongside new addition to the backfield, two-time All Pro safety Kevin Byard.
For the Eagles’ opponent, the division rival Washington Commanders, they have been without two starters who played in the Week 4 loss. Linebacker Cody Barton (ankle) and guard Saahdiq Charles (calf) have missed both days of practice so far, while wide receiver Curtis Samuel (foot) was upgraded to limited after missing Wednesday.
