The bye week provided some additional time for starting right guard Cam Jurgens to heal from the foot injury that placed him on the Injured Reserve list for the previous five games.

The Eagles announced on Saturday that they have activated Jurgens off of Injured Reserve. He was a full participant in practice all week and is ready to return to his starting right guard position Monday night against the Kansas City Chiefs.

"Feeling good. Doing what I can every day to get back into football playing shape, getting healthy," Jurgens said earlier this week.

When Jurgens went on Injured Reserve, the Eagles ranked second in the league in rushing offense, averaging more than 165 yards per game. They currently rank eighth, just below 130 yards per contest. Sua Opeta started the first four games after Jurgens' injury with rookie third-round pick Tyler Steen manning the position for the Week 9 win over Dallas.

The Eagles did not need to make a corresponding roster move since there was an open spot on the active roster.

Safety Justin Evans, who is on Injured Reserve with a knee injury, returned to practice this week in a limited capacity, but was not activated for Monday night's game.

The only player on the active roster who will miss Monday night's game is tight end Dallas Goedert with a forearm injury. The good news is that the injury suffered in the win over Dallas two weeks ago was not severe enough to put him on the Injured Reserve list at this time.

"We have high hopes that Dallas is going to be back. Again, I don't know when. I think that's unfair to Dallas," Head Coach Nick Sirianni said on Saturday. "Yeah, there is a reason he's not an IR yet."
