Eagles vs. Washington injury report

The Eagles made an injury update on Saturday, downgrading linebacker Shaun Bradley to out with a shoulder injury.

Washington announced several roster moves on Saturday:

• The following five players were elevated as COVID-19 replacements: defensive end William Bradley-King, linebacker De'Jon Harris, cornerback D.J. Hayden, safety Jeremy Reaves, and running back Wendell Smallwood.

Smallwood, a former Eagles draft pick, was a member of the Super Bowl Championship Team.

• Washington also elevated the following players from the practice squad: guard Deion Calhoun and punter Ryan Winslow. Starting offensive linemen Sam Cosmi and Ereck Flowers are on the Reserve/COVID-19 list along with punter Tress Way.

• The Football Team also announced that Offensive Line Coach John Matsko will miss Sunday's game due to COVID-19 protocols. His responsibilities will be handled by Assistant Offensive Line Coach Travelle Wharton.

The only player to watch for the Eagles on Sunday morning when the inactives list is released is running back Jordan Howard, who is officially questionable with the stinger injury he suffered last Sunday against the Giants. Howard was a limited participant in Friday's practice.

Fellow running back Miles Sanders is out for Sunday's game with a fractured hand. Everyone else on the active roster is good to go.

In terms of Eagles on the Reserve/COVID-19 list, the following players from the active roster are still on the list: defensive end Derek Barnett and defensive back Andre Chachere.

Washington's Injury Report

Washington will be without starting cornerback William Jackson III, who is out with a calf injury.

Defensive ends Montez Sweat (personal reasons) and James Smith-Williams (illness) are questionable, along with wide receiver Curtis Samuel (hamstring). Samuel has battled injury throughout the season and hasn't played since the Week 14 game against Dallas.

Washington put guard Ereck Flowers and running back Antonio Gibson on the Reserve/COVID-19 list on Friday. The Football Team also signed punter Ryan Winslow to the practice squad and designated linebacker Khaleke Hudson to return to practice from the Injured Reserve list.

Flowers is the starter at left guard for Washington. He is the second starter along the offensive line (right tackle Sam Cosmi) on the Reserve/COVID-19 list. Gibson is the team's top rusher with 891 yards on the ground this season to go along with six touchdowns. Gibson has dealt with injuries in recent weeks and has been held to 36 yards or fewer in each of the past three games, including a 15-carry, 26-yard outing against the Eagles two weeks ago (although he did have a touchdown). The Football Team is already without backup running back J.D. McKissic, who is on Injured Reserve.

Winslow was signed because punter Tress Way is on the Reserve/COVID-19 list. Hudson is a special teamer who was on IR with an ankle injury.

Running back Miles Sanders, already ruled out with the broken hand, was the only player on the active roster who did not participate in Thursday's practice.

Did Not Participate

• RB Miles Sanders (Hand)

Limited Participation

• RB Jordan Howard (Stinger)

Everyone else on the active roster, including quarterback Jalen Hurts (ankle), was a full participant.

Earlier on Thursday, the Eagles activated linebacker Shaun Bradley, one of the league's top special teams players, from the Reserve/COVID-19 list.

Meanwhile in Washington, the Football Team placed tackle Sam Cosmi and punter Tress Way on the Reserve/COVID-19 list. Defensive end Nate Orchard was activated from the Reserve/COVID-19 list.

Three players – all starters – did not practice for Washington on Thursday: running back Antonio Gibson (hip), cornerback William Jackson III (calf), and defensive end Montez Sweat (personal reasons).

The Eagles held a walkthrough on Wednesday in advance of Sunday's matchup with the Washington Football Team. Here is an estimation of who would have been listed on the injury report if the team held a full practice.

Did Not Participate

• DT Fletcher Cox (Rest)

• RB Jordan Howard (Stinger) – Said Head Coach Nick Sirianni on Wednesday when asked about Howard, "He's just working like crazy to get back and get himself ready to go for this game."

• C Jason Kelce (Rest)

• RB Miles Sanders (Hand) – Sanders will not play vs. Washington on Sunday with the broken hand, but Sirianni reiterated that the running back will not be placed on Injured Reserve.

• S K'Von Wallace (Hip)

Limited Participation

• RB Kenneth Gainwell (Ankle)

• G Nate Herbig (Knee)

• QB Jalen Hurts (Ankle)

• T Lane Johnson (Rest)

The Eagles activated the following players from the Reserve/COVID-19 list on Wednesday, making them eligible for Sunday's game: tackle Le'Raven Clark, tackle Andre Dillard, defensive end Tarron Jackson, and defensive end Ryan Kerrigan.

The Eagles still have three players on the active roster who are on the Reserve/COVID-19 list: defensive end Derek Barnett, linebacker Shaun Bradley, and defensive back Andre Chachere.

Here is a look at Washington's injury report

Starting right tackle Sam Cosmi (illness) did not participate in practice and neither did starting cornerback William Jackson III (calf) nor starting defensive end Montez Sweat (personal reasons).

Four players were limited participants on Wednesday including running back Antonio Gibson (hip) and defensive end James Smith-Williams (illness).

Quarterback Taylor Heinicke (knee) was also on the injury report, but as a full participant.

The Football Team dealt with significant COVID-19 issues which prompted the league to push the Week 15 game from Sunday afternoon to Tuesday night. As of now, the following Washington players are on the Reserve/COVID-19 list: guard Zack Bailey, defensive end Nate Orchard, and cornerback Darryl Roberts. Safety Landon Collins, who started against the Eagles two weeks ago, is on Injured Reserve. Also, safety Deshazor Everett is on the Reserve/Non-Football Injury list.
