TE Ertz, WR Matthews Both Questionable

Ahead of Friday's practice, head coach Doug Pederson gave status updates on the team's injured players. Safety Terrence Brooks (hamstring) did not participate in Wednesday, Thursday or Friday's practices and was officially ruled out for Sunday's game in Seattle.

Only two other players are listed as questionable, tight end Zach Ertz (hamstring) and wide receiver Jordan Matthews (back). After being a limited participant on Wednesday, Ertz did not practice on Thursday. Matthews did not participate in Wednesday's practice, but was a limited participant on Thursday. Both were full participants on Friday.

Because the team is scheduled to leave Philadelphia on Friday afternoon, two days before the game, Pederson said the Eagles will bring wide receiver Paul Turner on the trip as a backup plan if Matthews is unable to play.

Guard Allen Barbre (hamstring), cornerback Nolan Carroll (concussion), linebacker Kamu Grugier-Hill (hamstring) and cornerback Leodis McKelvin (hamstring) were all full participants on Friday and are all expected to be in the lineup against the Seahawks.
