Eagles-Giants Injury Report
Here’s the injury report for Sunday’s regular-season finale in New York:
QB Nick Foles (collarbone)
CB Bradley Fletcher (hip)
DT Beau Allen (shoulder), DE Brandon Bair (knee), TE Trey Burton (back), LB Trent Cole (hand), LB Mychal Kendricks (ankle), S Chris Maragos (hamstring), WR Jordan Matthews (knee)
Fletcher was listed as a limited participant Wednesday and Thursday and a full participant Friday. Chip Kelly and Billy Davis were non-committal this week about whether the struggling Fletcher would start at left corner. The other defensive backs said everything was business as usual this week.
Les Bowen offered up this theory:
I think Eagles don’t want to embarrass Bradley Fletcher any further. This hip injury thing is a convenient way to limit his play vs. Giants.

Nolan Carroll is the expected next man in.
Kendricks popped up on the report as a limited participant Thursday. He was showing discomfort during the portion of practice open to the media.
There were some mixed signals regarding Cole this week. He’s coming off hand surgery but is listed as probable.
For the Giants: Running backs Rashad Jennings (ankle) and Andre Williams (shoulder) are banged up, as are linebackers Devon Kennard (toe), Jameel McClain (knee) and Paul Hazel (hamstring). Their status for Sunday was not available at the time of posting.
