Kendricks Misses Practice, Is ‘Day To Day’


Inside linebacker Mychal Kendricks left Monday night’s game against the Colts in the second half with what he called a calf strain.

But Kendricks was not practicing during the portion of today’s session open to the media.

“He’s day to day,” said Billy Davis. “I’ve got a plan for either [way], and obviously without him practicing today, we’ll see where that is. We’ll have the other guys get the reps. Toward the end of the week, we’ll have a better feel.”

Against Indianapolis, Casey Matthews stepped in for Kendricks and did not play well. He was pulled on the final drive and replaced by Emmanuel Acho.

Acho would probably be the favorite to replace Kendricks if Kendricks is not ready to play against the Redskins.

“Both of them are up and competing for it, and we’ll see by the end of the week who has the better week,” said Davis. “We have complete confidence in both of them, so we’ll see how the week plays out, but it could be Casey or Acho, or a mix of both.”


The Eagles did get some good news. Both offensive lineman Matt Tobin and wide receiver Josh Huff appeared to be participating fully in today’s practice. Huff has been sidelined with an AC sprain (shoulder) since the preseason, and Tobin has been dealing with an ankle injury.

This was the first time both guys had helmets on during practice.

Tobin has the ability to play either tackle or guard, and the Eagles could use his help with Evan Mathis and Allen Barbre out.

Huff would potentially add wide receiver depth.

We’ll talk to both guys about what their status is later today.


Update: The Eagles released their official injury report this afternoon.
