On Friday afternoon, the Eagles released their final injury report for Sunday's game against Tampa Bay. Both Sam Bradford and Ryan Mathews are officially out for the game as they deal with concussion issues. Safety Jerome Couplin is also out with a shoulder injury. With Bradford officially ruled out, expect Mark Sanchez to get the start on Sunday, his first of the season. Sanchez started the final eight games of 2014, elading the Eagles to a 4-4 record. 

After being in and out of training all week long, left tackle Jason Peters is officially questionable with his back injury. Early in the week, Lane Johnson said the he expects to play at right tackle but will be ready to shift to left if Peters can't go.

Meanwhile, linebacker Connor Barwin (quadricep), wide receiver Josh Huff (back), linebacker DeMeco Ryans (hamstring), safety Walter Thurmond (hamstring) and guard Josh Andrews (concussion) are all probable and likely to suit up on Sunday.

WR Jackson Questionable For Tampa Bay

The Buccaneers also released their final injury report of the week on Friday afternoon, with defensive end George Johnson being the only player ruled out for Sunday as of now. The bigger news for the Eagles is that wide reciever Vincent Jackson (knee) and tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins (shoulder), two of Jameis Winston's biggest playmakers, are officially questionable. The Eagles will already have a tall task in defending against Mike Evans, so not having to deal with Jackson and Seferian-Jenkins would be a nice boost.
