The Eagles practiced in their black helmets on Friday ahead of the debut of their all-black uniform look against the Packers on Sunday. Every player on the active roster was a full participant, though wide receiver A.J. Brown is still battling an illness that left him sick in bed during Thanksgiving. When speaking in the locker room, he said he'd rate the way he feels a 3 out of 10 – but noted he'll be good to go for gameday.

Here's Friday's injury report:

Roster Move

The Eagles announced on Friday that they released guard Tyrese Robinson from the practice squad.

Packers rule out rookie WR

Not Christian Watson, who has five touchdowns in the past two games. Romeo Doubs will miss his third straight game with an ankle injury.

Meanwhile, linebacker De'Vondre Campbell returned to practice in a limited manner on Friday. However, the Packers still listed him as doubtful with a knee injury.

Two other Packers are questionable – starting left tackle David Bakhtiari, who was limited on Thursday and Friday with a knee injury, and cornerback Shemar Jean-Charles, who was limited all week with an ankle injury.


The Eagles held their first full practice of the week on Thanksgiving. And while several veterans were limited to rest, two key offensive weapons were added to the Injury Report on Thursday.

Wide receiver A.J. Brown was the only player on the active roster who did not participate in practice due to an illness.

Wide receiver DeVonta Smith was limited in practice on Thursday due to a knee injury.

Cornerback Josh Jobe was the only player listed on the Eagles' Injury Report on Wednesday. He was once again limited as he recovers from a hamstring injury.

Here is the list of players who were limited due to rest on Thursday: CB James Bradberry, G Landon Dickerson, DE Brandon Graham, T Lane Johnson, C Jason Kelce, G Isaac Seumalo, CB Darius Slay, and DE Josh Sweat.

The latest on QB Aaron Rodgers

There were 11 Packers on the Injury Report who were either limited or did not participate in the Thanksgiving practice, but quarterback Aaron Rodgers was not one of them. After revealing on Wednesday that he is dealing with a thumb fracture on his throwing hand, the reigning back-to-back MVP was a full participant in practice.

Ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday, the Eagles held a walkthrough on Wednesday. Only one player was on the team's estimated injury report – cornerback Josh Jobe, who was limited as he continued to work his way back from a hamstring injury.

Meanwhile in Green Bay, quarterback Aaron Rodgers confirmed to reporters on Wednesday that he has been dealing with a broken thumb on his throwing hand since Week 5.

"I think I've had worse injuries that I've played with," Rodgers said. "It's definitely a challenge, but the days off help."

Rodgers was limited on Wednesday for the 4-7 Packers, who started 3-1 but have lost six of seven. Rodgers, the NFL's MVP in each of the past two seasons, is 15th in passing DVOA, according to Football Outsiders, and has thrown seven interceptions after four in all of 2021. He hadn't thrown seven in a season since 2016.

Left tackle David Bakhtiari missed Wednesday's practice with a knee injury. Guard Elgton Jenkins, who has played every offensive snap this season, missed practice with a knee injury. Rookie wide receiver Romeo Doubs has been sidelined with an ankle injury, which caused him to miss Wednesday's practice. Running back Aaron Jones was limited with shin and glute injuries.

Defensively, linebacker De'Vondre Campbell continues to miss time with a knee injury. Former Eagle Rudy Ford missed Wednesday's practice with an illness.
