Eagles-49ers Injury Report
Here is the injury report for Sunday’s game in San Francisco:
C Jason Kelce (hernia), LB Mychal Kendricks (calf)
WR Josh Huff (shoulder)
DE Brandon Bair (foot), CB Brandon Boykin (hip), TE James Casey (knee), DE Fletcher Cox (back), WR Jordan Matthews (oblique), WR Brad Smith (groin), T Matt Tobin (ankle), CB Jaylen Watkins (hamstring), S Earl Wolff (knee)
Kendricks looks much improved but will sit for the second straight week. The plan is to rotate Casey Matthews, Emmanuel Acho and Marcus Smith in with DeMeco Ryans like they did against Washington.
Kelce is expected to miss between 5-8 weeks following sports hernia surgery.
Huff practiced in full all week and seemed confident that he would be able to play. Chip Kelly needs to be convinced that the rookie is ready to contribute in a meaningful way if he is going to use an active roster spot on him. Cox was limited Wednesday but practiced in full the rest of the week.
For the Niners: Tight end Vernon Davis (ankle, knee) was limited this week but the expectation is that he will play. Cornerback Tramaine Brock (toe) and center Marcus Martin (knee) were sidelined at practice. Wide receiver Michael Crabtree (quadricep), running back Frank Gore (back) and linebacker Patrick Willis (wrist) were full participants.
