Vinny Curry, Craig James suffer 'significant' injuries in Sunday's loss

Head Coach Doug Pederson delivered some good – and some bad – injury news during his press conference Monday afternoon.

Let's start with the bad news, shall we?

Defensive end Vinny Curry and cornerback Craig James both suffered "significant" injuries during Sunday's loss to Washington, which will require them to miss "some time" over the next couple of weeks, according to Pederson.

Curry suffered a hamstring injury during the loss and did not return to the game. However, it is currently unknown what exactly is ailing James.

The Eagles will have the option to place them on Injured Reserve and bring them back after missing three games. That will open up two roster spots while the veteran defensive end and special teams captain heal.

The Eagles' other starting defensive end, Brandon Graham, also left Sunday's game with a head injury. Pederson revealed Monday that he indeed going through the concussion protocol.

Now, for some good news.

Tackle Lane Johnson (ankle), Miles Sanders (hamstring), and Derek Barnett (hamstring) will all have their workloads increased in practice this week. All three missed Sunday's game due to injury, but Pederson hopes they will be available for this week's game against the Los Angeles Rams.

"We're going to see as the week goes on where they are, and hopefully, they'll be available for the game by Sunday," Pederson said.
