Rams vs. Eagles Injury Report

Reinforcements are on the way for the Eagles.

Defensive tackle Javon Hargrave, tackle Lane Johnson, and running back Miles Sanders are good to go for Sunday's home opener against the Rams. Hargrave, the big-ticket free agent addition, has been sidelined with pectoral and hamstring injuries. He returned to practice this week and was full for the first time on Friday. Johnson missed the season opener with an ankle injury, while Sanders was out with a hamstring injury.

The only players who were not full participants in Friday's practice were wide receiver Alshon Jeffery (out with a foot injury) and tackle Jason Peters, who was limited with a knee injury but will play on Sunday.

Defensive end is a position to watch come Sunday as Derek Barnett (hamstring) and Brandon Graham (concussion) are both questionable.

Derek Barnett, Lane Johnson, and Miles Sanders remain on track to make their season debuts Sunday against the Los Angeles Rams.

Barnett and Sanders, who were both sidelined with hamstring injuries for the opener in Washington, were full participants in Thursday's practice. Johnson (ankle) was limited, but told reporters following practice that it was planned to hold him back a bit.

In fact, only one player – wide receiver Alshon Jeffery – did not participate in practice. Jeffery continues to rehab a foot injury.

Defensive end Brandon Graham (concussion) and defensive tackle Javon Hargrave (hamstring, pectoral) were both limited on Thursday. Graham did not practice at all on Wednesday.

Tackle Jason Peters (knee) was a full participant after being limited on Wednesday. Defensive tackle Fletcher Cox and wide receiver DeSean Jackson were full participants after getting the day off.

Wednesday's Injury Report

Looking to rebound from the season opener, the Eagles got good news on the injury front as defensive end Derek Barnett (hamstring), tackle Lane Johnson (ankle), and running back Miles Sanders (hamstring) were all full participants on Wednesday. The three starters did not play in Sunday's game. Barnett and Sanders did not travel, while Johnson was a game-time decision.

Head Coach Doug Pederson said on Wednesday that was "optimistic" that Johnson would be available to make his season debut against the Rams. Jack Driscoll started against Washington at right tackle.

Pederson added on Wednesday that he was not putting a timetable on defensive tackle Javon Hargrave's ability to play, but the big-ticket free agent acquisition was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice. Hargrave has been sidelined with hamstring and pectoral injuries.

Four players did not practice for the Eagles on Wednesday. Defensive tackle Fletcher Cox and wide receiver DeSean Jackson were each given the day off. Defensive end Brandon Graham is in the concussion protocol. Wide receiver Alshon Jeffery continues to work his way back from a foot injury. Tackle Jason Peters was also on the injury report as a limited participant with a knee injury.

For the Rams, tight end Gerald Everett missed practice due to a back injury, while tackle Andrew Whitworth did not practice for non-injury reasons.
