The Eagles held a walkthrough on Wednesday, so their initial injury report is an estimation.
Earlier in the day, the Eagles opened the 21-day practice window for starting right guard Cam Jurgens, marking a key milestone in his recovery from a foot injury he suffered in the Week 4 win over the Commanders. He went on Injured Reserve and is eligible to come back for Sunday’s NFC East showdown against the Cowboys. Jurgens would have been a limited participant in practice.
“It’s been good, focusing on rehab,” Jurgens said on Wednesday. “Doing everything I can to get it right and also stay with the guys and support them and make sure I’m staying in the meeting and listening and knowing the game plan and not taking time off. This is the time to get better. That’s the way I treated it.”
Jurgens was replaced in the starting lineup by Sua Opeta, who would have been limited as well on Wednesday with a hip injury. Jurgens is in his first season as a starter after being selected by the Eagles in the second round of the 2022 NFL Draft.
“If he’s ready to come back this week, we’ll be so excited,” left tackle Jordan Mailata said of Jurgens. “I know he’s taking it day to day and he’s itching to come back. The guy’s impatient. He just wants to be back on the field with the boys. I can’t wait, man. I’m excited for him to come back .”
Three players would have missed Wednesday’s practice – tight end Grant Calcaterra (concussion), cornerback Bradley Roby (shoulder), and running back Boston Scott (personal matter).
Jurgens and Opeta would have been limited, along with defensive tackle Jordan Davis (hamstring), tight end Jack Stoll (ankle), and defensive tackle Milton Williams (shoulder).
Defensive tackle Jalen Carter, who exited Sunday’s win over the Commanders early, would have been a full participant on Wednesday with a back injury.
