The Eagles will be without two players on Monday night when they take on the Buccaneers – running back Boston Scott (concussion) and wide receiver Quez Watkins (hamstring).
Scott was a limited participant in practice, but is still in the concussion protocol. Watkins did not practice all week. Head Coach Nick Sirianni spoke on Saturday about a potential chance for an expanded role for Olamide Zaccheaus, who has 13 catches for 164 yards and two touchdowns in his career against Tampa Bay from his time with the Falcons.
"He brings a toughness. We trust him. He's a savvy route runner," Head Coach Nick Sirianni said of Zaccheaus on Friday. "He's got great football instincts. If it's turn to play this week, I've got a lot of faith in him that he'll do a really good job."
Good news for the Eagles is that the three players who missed the Week 2 win over Minnesota will be available – safety Reed Blankenship, cornerback James Bradberry, and running back Kenneth Gainwell.
Avonte Maddox was placed on Injured Reserve this week, so he is not listed on the injury report. Sirianni did not say who will replace him as the nickel cornerback.

Starting cornerback Carlton Davis is questionable with a toe injury. He was limited in practice all week.
Starting guard Cody Mauch is questionable after being added to the injury report during the week with a back injury. He was a full participant, however, on Saturday.
