Acho Questionable For Thursday

Linebacker Emmanuel Acho (groin) was a limited participant in Wednesday's training session, the third straight day he was limited, and is listed as questionable for Thursday's Thanksgiving matchup with the Dallas Cowboys.

Acho said Tuesday that the decision of whether he'll play against Dallas on Thursday will likely be a game-time decision.

"I made major strides from [Monday] to [Tuesday]," Acho explained Tuesday. "But with it being on Thursday, I can't make a call on Wednesday, because who knows how I'll feel when I wake up Thursday morning. So it'll probably have to be a Thursday decision."

On Monday, Acho compared his injury to the one suffered earlier in the season by linebacker DeMeco Ryans, who tweaked his groin against St. Louis and was then able to play the following Sunday night in the win over the New York Giants. Ryans had seven days to recover. Acho has four.

We will see how much of a difference that makes.

"I think I'll be able to [play], but it will be tough to tell," Acho said on Monday. "I've got a role to play so I have to do what I can to get right."

Quarterback Nick Foles will miss his fourth straight game with the collarbone injury. Head coach Chip Kelly said on Monday that Foles will have the injury re-checked in the next week or so.

The following six Eagles were listed as full participants, and are officially probable for Thursday: safety Nate Allen (ankle), defensive end Brandon Bair (elbow), tight end Zach Ertz (oblique), wide receiver Jordan Matthews (knee), kicker Cody Parkey (right groin) and tackle Jason Peters (quadricep).
