Doug Pederson provides final injury update for Sunday's game in Washington

Head coach Doug Pederson spoke with the media Friday morning for the final time before the Eagles head on the road to take on Washington. After missing the Week 14 matchup due to a knee injury, Nelson Agholor has not practiced at all this week. He is officially questionable for Sunday.

"We'll work through today and see where he's at," Pederson said. "He hasn't worked the last couple of days. We're still working through it."

Along with Agholor, wide receiver Alshon Jeffery is another staple of the offense who is sidelined. Pederson confirmed on Friday morning that Jeffery suffered a Lisfranc (foot) injury in the second quarter of Monday's overtime win over the Giants. Pederson added that it will require surgery to repair.

"He would want to get it done quickly so he can get on the rehab schedule," Pederson said.

The final offensive injury in question is running back Jordan Howard. He has been limited in practice all week with a shoulder injury, similar to last week's preparation for the Giants, in which he was inactive for the fourth consecutive game. Pederson said that Howard has yet to be cleared for contact. Howard is officially listed as questionable.

Linebacker Kamu Grugier-Hill has been a full participant at practice this week after not playing on Monday night due to a concussion he sustained against the Miami Dolphins. Grugier-Hill admitted to media members that he was not upfront about the injury he had incurred on the first play of the game.

"This goes back to Training Camp, when we sit in here as a team and have a medical meeting. We stress how important it is to our players how important it is to one, self-police themselves or a teammate. We know how important head and neck injuries are to the league and the player himself. For him to admit what he said is very disappointing to me as a head coach," Pederson said.

Grugier-Hill will play Sunday in Washington, but two other starters on defense are questionable. Defensive end Derek Barnett did not practice all week after missing last week's game against the Giants with an ankle injury incurred on December 1 in Miami. Cornerback Ronald Darby is also questionable. He was added to the injury report on Friday as limited with a hip flexor injury.
