Friday's Injury Report
Friday marked the Eagles' final practice before Sunday's home game against the Cowboys.
Cornerback Bradley Roby (shoulder) and running back Boston Scott (personal matter) did not practice this week and will be out on Sunday. Roby, a midseason signing, has missed the last three games. Scott is out for the first time this season.
Guard Cam Jurgens is also out for Sunday's game. Jurgens missed the last four games with a foot injury and had his 21-day practice window opened earlier this week. He will use this week and the upcoming bye week to continue recovering.
Tight end Grant Calcaterra (concussion) was limited at practice on Friday after not practicing the two days before. However, Calcaterra, who left last week's game in Washington early, will be out against the Cowboys. Tight end Albert Okwuegbunam, who has been inactive for most of the season, is ready to step up.
"I try to prepare every week like I am going to have a role," Okwuegbunam said. "The key to having success in this league is having a consistent mindset and that translates to your play."
Everyone else on the active roster is good to go for Sunday.
Cornerback James Bradberry (thigh) was added to the injury report on Friday as a limited participant but has no game status designation.
Defensive tackles Jalen Carter (back) and Jordan Davis (hamstring) were full participants at practice. Carter was a full participant all week, while Davis was limited on Wednesday and Thursday.
Guard Sua Opeta (hip), tight end Jack Stoll (ankle), and defensive tackle Milton Williams (shoulder) practiced fully on Friday and have no game status designations for Sunday's game.
Who will start at left tackle for the Cowboys?
Starting left tackle Tyron Smith (neck) and backup Chuma Edoga (ankle/knee) are questionable for Sunday's game against the Eagles.
The Cowboys held a walkthrough on Friday, but if they had a full practice, Smith would have been limited – an upgrade after missing Wednesday's and Thursday's practices – and Edoga would have been limited as well, the same as all week.
Smith, an eight-time Pro Bowl selection, has missed the last three games with the injury. Edoga exited during last Sunday's win over the Rams, leaving rookie Asim Richards to fill in.
Those are the only two to watch from an injury standpoint for Sunday. Wide receiver Michael Gallup (illness) and safety Jayron Kearse (toe) would have been full participants in a regular practice on Friday and have no game status designation.
Thursday's Injury Report
The Eagles held a full practice on Thursday as the team prepares for the Cowboys on Sunday afternoon.
The same three players missed practice again on Thursday. Grant Calcaterra (concussion), Bradley Roby (shoulder), and Boston Scott (personal matter) all did not participate.
On the offensive side of the ball, guard Cam Jurgens (foot) and tight end Jack Stoll (shoulder) were limited at practice. The Eagles opened the 21-day practice window for Jurgens this week following a four-week stint on Injured Reserve. Guard Sua Opeta, who was a limited participant during Wednesday's walkthrough, practiced fully on Thursday.
On the defensive side of the ball, defensive tackle Jordan Davis (hamstring) and Milton Williams (shoulder) were both limited participants at practice. Defensive tackle Jalen Carter (back), who left last week's game early, was once again a full participant.
Wednesday's Injury Report
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.
