Eagles-Patriots Injury Report
UPDATE: The Eagles added Bennie Logan (knee) to the injury report this morning as questionable for today’s game. The nose tackle was not listed on the team’s practice report at all in the past week and was a full participant on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
According to CSN Philly’s Derrick Gunn, Cedric Thornton (ankle) will not play today. If Thornton or Logan are unavailable for the game, Brandon Bair is likely to be active.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter also reported that New England’s Danny Amendola (knee) and Jamie Collins (illness) will play.
Here’s the rest of the injury report for the Eagles’ game against the Patriots:
RB Ryan Mathews (concussion, groin)
T Jason Peters (back, ankle), DE Cedric Thornton (ankle), DT Bennie Logan (knee)
WR Nelson Agholor (hip), WR Seyi Ajirotutu (calf), QB Sam Bradford (left shoulder), TE Zach Ertz (concussion), WR Josh Huff (concussion), T Lane Johnson (shoulder), C Jason Kelce (knee), T Dennis Kelly (ankle), S Walter Thurmond (hamstring, calf)
It’s no surprise Mathews will miss his third consecutive game, because he didn’t practice at all this week. Thornton improved each day as he didn’t practice on Wednesday, was limited yesterday and fully participated today. However, Friday practices are typically easier workloads for the players.
Thurmond missed practice on Wednesday, but he told reporters this week that he’s been dealing with a hamstring injury for a few weeks and expects to play through it on Sunday. After missing the Tampa Bay and Detroit games, Bradford is expected to start at quarterback against New England.
WR Julian Edelman (foot), TE Rob Gronkowski (knee)
CB Justin Coleman (hand), DT Dominique Easley (ankle), WR Danny Amendola (knee), SS Patrick Chung (foot), OLB Jamie Collins (illness), OLB Dont’a Hightower (knee), TE Michael Williams (knee)
DT Alan Branch (elbow), OT Marcus Cannon (toe), DE Chandler Jones (abdomen), TE Scott Chandler (knee)
