Eagles-Seahawks Injury Report
Here’s the injury report for Sunday’s home game against the Seahawks:
QB Nick Foles (collarbone)
TE Trey Burton (hamstring)
LB Emmanuel Acho (groin), DE Brandon Bair (elbow), K Cody Parkey (right groin), RB Chris Polk (ankle)
Chip Kelly suggested that Parkey’s injury may have impacted his kickoffs against Dallas but doesn’t anticipate that being the case this week.
“It was definitely tugging on me a little bit,” said Parkey. “That’s why I have been taking precautions now so it doesn’t get any worse.”
Parkey said that he first started feeling the tug prior to the Tennessee game on November 23. Is fatigue a factor for the rookie at this point in the season?
“Sure your legs start getting tired and everything but Coach [Dave] Fipp and Coach Kelly and the whole staff do a good job of trying to keep my kick count down when I am kicking and just trying to keep me fresh,” he said.
Parkey expects to be fine for Sunday’s game. Apparently either Chris Maragos or Riley Cooper would be the emergency option.
LeSean McCoy did not practice Friday because of personal reasons.
Polk was limited Wednesday but was listed as a full participant the rest of the week.
As for the Seahawks:
Carroll said C Max Unger won’t play Sunday. CB Jeremy Lane and TE Cooper Helfet will be gametime decisions. #SEAvsPHI

Helfet is doubtful and and Lane questionable on the official injury report.
Marshawn Lynch (back) missed some practice time this week but is probable. Defensive end Michael Bennett (toe) and corner Byron Maxwell (shin) are also probable.
