Following halftime, the Eagles announced CB Aaron Grymes and LB Joe Walker were both out for the remainder of the game. Grymes suffered a shoulder injury, while Walker left with a knee injury.


Prior to kickoff of tonight's game with the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Eagles announced that the following seven players are not expected to play:

QB Carson Wentz

WR Hunter Sharp

CB JaCorey Shepherd

CB Jalen Mills

RB Wendell Smallwood

WR Jordan Matthews

DT Mike Martin

LB Mychal Kendricks

K Caleb Sturgis

Once again, Josh Huff is expected to start in Matthews' place, while Najee Goode will start for Kendricks. Sturgis will not play after he was hit in the head by a punt during warmups and sustained a concussion.  The newly acquired Dorial Green-Beckham is not among those names, and while head coach Doug Pederson said earlier in the week that the wide receiver wouldn't play, perhaps he could make his way onto the field.

For the Steelers, a number of notable starters are listed as healthy scratches. QB Ben Roethlisberger, RB Le'Veon Bell, and WR Antonio Brown are among the Steelers who will sit out.
