Pederson: Carson Wentz 'day to day' with hand bruise, won't miss any practice time

Further testing on Monday determined that quarterback Carson Wentz suffered a bruised throwing hand in Sunday's loss to Seattle.

"He's got a little bruise in his hand, kind of on the middle finger there," head coach Doug Pederson said. "Day to day, should be fine for the game."

When asked if Wentz will miss any practice time this week as the team prepares for the Miami Dolphins, Pederson simply replied, "No."

The Eagles were already without their top wide receivers, All-Pro tackle Lane Johnson, and lead running back Jordan Howard when Pro Bowl guard Brandon Brooks exited Sunday's game after two series on offense with that the team said was an illness. Brooks explained on social media Monday morning that the illness was associated with his ongoing battle with anxiety. Pederson said that Brooks has the full support of the entire team.

"This is real life for him," Pederson said. "This is serious and it's something that he battled every single day. He does a great job managing that."

The only other injury update from Pederson was with regard to Howard, who has missed the past two games with a stinger injury that he suffered in the win over Chicago in Week 9.

"He still hasn't regained full strength in his shoulder," Pederson said. "He's still day to day. He'll still do individual this week and we'll see where he's at at the end of the week."
