Friday's Injury Report

Wide receiver Quez Watkins returned to practice on Thursday and was once again a limited participant on Friday, but he will miss a second straight game due to a hamstring injury. Rookie safety Sydney Brown is also out after not practicing all week with a hamstring injury of his own.

Good news for the secondary is that starting safety Justin Evans (neck) was a full participant after missing practice on Wednesday and Thursday. However, Evans is questionable. The Eagles have Terrell Edmunds, who can play at safety if Evans suffers a setback. The team also has Tristin McCollum on the practice squad, who could be elevated as an insurance policy.

"We look at this as a 69-man roster, not a 53-man roster, so he's done a really good job," Head Coach Nick Sirianni said on Friday. "We keep guys around that we can develop and that can also be ready to step in and play if their number is called.

"We're confident in him if his number is called that he can come in and do an effective job."

Everyone else is good to go for the Eagles.

In Washington, tight end Logan Thomas has cleared concussion protocol and will be active for Sunday's game.

Running back Chris Rodriguez Jr. is out with an illness, while safety Percy Butler is questionable with a foot injury.

The Eagles will look to improve to 4-0 as they take on the 2-1 Washington Commanders for Sunday's Crucial Catch game. Check out how they have been preparing for their division rival with photos from Photography Director Kiel Leggere.

Thursday's Injury Report

The Eagles welcomed one wide receiver back to the practice field, while another was sidelined on Thursday.

Quez Watkins missed the win in Tampa Bay due to a hamstring injury. He was back on the field Thursday as a limited participant. Meanwhile, DeVonta Smith was added to the injury report on Thursday as missing practice due to an illness.

Two Eagles were upgraded on Thursday – wide receiver Britain Covey (hamstring) and linebacker Zach Cunningham (ribs) were full participants after being projected as limited participants on Wednesday (note that the Eagles only held a walkthrough on Wednesday).

The players to watch on Friday are safeties Sydney Brown (hamstring) and Justin Evans (neck). They were both non-participants on Wednesday and Thursday after exiting Monday night's game due to their respective injuries.

For Washington, the only change from Wednesday was that running back Chris Rodriguez Jr. was downgraded from a limited participant to a non-participant due to an illness. Safety Percy Butler has been limited in practice this week with a foot injury.

Wednesday's Injury Report

The Eagles held a walkthrough coming off of their win on Monday night, so the practice participation levels are just estimations.

Starting safety Justin Evans exited Monday night's game with a knee injury and would not have participated in a practice on Wednesday.

Same for rookie Sydney Brown (hamstring) and wide receiver Quez Watkins (hamstring). Brown suffered the injury on Monday night, while Watkins did not play against the Buccaneers.

Four players would have been limited participants on Wednesday – returner Britain Covey (hamstring), defensive tackle Fletcher Cox (knee), linebacker Zach Cunningham (ribs), and guard Cam Jurgens (groin).

Everyone else – including guard Landon Dickerson (who left Monday's game with a knee injury) and running back Boston Scott (who did not play due to a concussion) – would have been full participants.

Washington is healthy coming into the Week 4 showdown. Every player on the active roster was at least a limited participant in Wednesday's practice.

Limited Participation: safety Percy Butler (foot), running back Chris Rodriguez Jr. (illness), and tight end Logan Thomas (concussion)

Full Participation: cornerback Emmanuel Forbes (elbow) and cornerback Benjamin St-Juste (neck)
