Injury Report: Packers CB Underwood Out

Continuing the week-long trend, the Eagles' injury report was devoid of a single name in advance of the season opener. Every player on the 53-man roster is healthy and capable of suiting up on Sunday against the Green Bay Packers.

Only one player is listed as out for the Packers, cornerback Brandon Underwood. That means that undrafted rookie Sam Shields, who spent his first three seasons at the University of Miami as a wide receiver before switching to cornerback his senior year, will inhabit the nickel back role for the Packers on Sunday.

Two players are listed as questionable: backup inside linebacker Desmond Bishop (hamstring) and backup defensive end Mike Neal (side). After not practicing on Wednesday and Thursday, linebacker Brady Poppinga (knee) was a limited participant on Friday and is probably. Also probably are offensive lineman Bryan Bulaga (hip), tackle Chad Clifton (knee), defensive end Cullen Jenkins (calf), linebacker Brad Jones (shoulder), safety Derrick Martin (ankle), linebacker Clay Matthews (hamstring) and cornerback Charles Woodson (toe).
