Chiefs vs. Eagles injury report

Andre Dillard 1920 060521

There is only one player on the Eagles' Game Status report and it's tackle Jordan Mailata, who is out for Sunday's game against the Chiefs with a knee injury. Andre Dillard will start for the second game in a row in Mailata's place at left tackle.

Head Coach Nick Sirianni offered his thoughts on Dillard's performance Monday night against the Cowboys.

"I think his performance on Monday night was – I thought was really good, against two really good pass rushers. They got some good pass rushers over there at Dallas and he played an outstanding game," Sirianni said.

"And then you think about that game he played against the Jets, and then you think about the game he played in this one, he just had two stacked games right back to back in a row where he played really well.

"And, you know, he's showing us that at practice. So what does that say about him? What I think it says about him is you want everyone to think, like, 'I'm one snap – if I'm a backup, I'm one snap away from going in and my role is to get myself ready to play. And if I'm on scout team a little bit, it's to get the defense ready to play. But it's ultimately for me, myself, to be ready to play.' And he was and a tribute to him and he played his role really well.

Tackle Jordan Mailata was the only player who did not participate in Thursday's practice ahead of the Week 4 matchup with the Kansas City Chiefs. In fact, every other player was a full participant. It looks like Mailata could miss his second straight game with a knee injury. Andre Dillard started on Monday night against Dallas and told reporters that he is preparing to do the same Sunday against the Chiefs.

Thursday marked the first full practice for safety Rodney McLeod this season. He was listed as a full participant on Wednesday, but it was an estimation since the team held a walkthrough. McLeod suffered a knee injury last December in the win over New Orleans. He is on track to make his season debut on Sunday. Linebacker Davion Taylor is also poised to return after missing Monday night's game with a calf injury.

Here is a look at the Eagles' initial injury report ahead of Sunday's matchup with the Kansas City Chiefs.

Note that the Eagles held a walkthrough on Wednesday, so the practice report is an estimation.

Did Not Participate

• T Jordan Mailata (knee)

Limited Participation

• C Landon Dickerson (hip)

• S Marcus Epps (shoulder)

• T Lane Johnson (ankle)

• C Jason Kelce (foot/rest)

Full Participation

• S Rodney McLeod (knee)

• LB Davion Taylor (calf)

McLeod has only been a limited participant in the first three weeks of the regular season, so Thursday could be a significant milestone in his return from last year's knee injury. Taylor missed Monday night's game with the calf injury. If Mailata is unable to play for a second straight game, tackle Andre Dillard will start at left tackle. Head Coach Nick Sirianni did not disclose who will start at left guard following the season-ending injury to Isaac Seumalo.
