The Philadelphia Eagles released their first official injury report on Tuesday prior to their Week 16 game against the Dallas Cowboys.
Note that this report is an estimate because the team conducted a walk-through rather than a normal practice.
Four players are listed as DID NOT Pascal: Jalen Hurts, Gardner Minshew, K’Von Wallace, and Zach Pascal.
Hurts will likely miss this week’s game with a right shoulder sprain. The fact that it is listed as a DNP only reinforces this belief. Hurt himself and Nick Siriani confirm that there is a chance to play in Dallas. The feeling here is that they’re taking on those messages because 1) Siriani is big on the idea of ”competitive advantage” and wants to force the Cowboys to prepare two different quarterbacks and 2) they want to worry less about how dangerous he is. infection. I can’t say there is a zero chance Hurts will play but I think it’s a single digit possibility.
Mencho, who is likely to start on Saturday, missed practice because he attended and spoke at Mike Leach’s funeral in Mississippi. Mincio is expected to return to Philly on Tuesday evening and practice on Wednesday. Ian Book, who hasn’t been active for a game this year, was the only Eagles quarterback available on the team’s run. The book will be Minshew’s backup if Hurts comes out on Saturday.
Wallace is an unexpected new addition to the hip problem report. He saw increased playing time in Week 15 due to CJ Gardner-Johnson on injured reserve and Reed Blankenship being ruled out. Blankenship is listed as a full entrant (more on him later) on Tuesday, however, Wallace will not be needed as he was on Sunday. If Wallace misses this week’s game, the team will likely lift interim Anthony Harris from the coaching staff to serve as backup behind Blankenship and Marcus Epps.
Pascal was not included in the original Tuesday injury report released by the Eagles; He was added later due to a concussion. Pascal must clear the league’s mandatory protocol in order to be eligible to play on Saturday. It remains to be seen if there will be enough time for this to happen. If he can’t play, the Eagles will just be AJ Brown, Devonta Smith, Queez Watkins and Britain Coffey wide. They have Greg Ward and Devon Allen on the practice squad.
One player is included in the limited entry: Terry Jackson.
Jackson appears to be dealing with a knee problem. His injury comes at a time when the Eagles really don’t need him anymore after they activated IR’s Dallas Goedert. Jackson was TE3 in the offside order with Goedert out, so now he’s TE4. Perhaps the Eagles are looking to put Jackson in the IR position to open up a roster spot for the signing of Christian Ellis, who is temporarily out of the Heights from the practice squad. something to monitor.
One player is listed in full participation: Red Blankenship.
Blankenship suffered a knee injury in Week 14 and missed Week 15. It looks like he’s ready to get back on the court in Dallas. good news. Blankenship characters start out safe with CJGJ out at least one more game.

Dallas cows injury report (Tuesday)
Two Cowboys players never trained: Micah Parsons and Leighton Vander Esch.
Parsons deals only with a disease. He will be ready to play.
However, LVE will likely miss this game after getting hurt in Week 15. That’s bad news for the Cowboys’ defense outlook.
Five Cowboys players have been tied up in practice: DeMarcus Lawrence, Dorrance Armstrong, Jaron Kerse, Noah Brown, and Jake Ferguson.
Lawrence is the player who is managed during the week in order to get to match day.
Armstrong was tied up all week in practice last week. He played though the referee is questionable…but he scored his fewest runs of the season and failed to hit a statistic. It seems to be working at less than 100%. Armstrong ranks second on the Cowboys in sacks this season.
Kearse, a starting safety for Dallas, is also being managed to make it to game day.
The Browns, who are second to the Cowboys in receiving yards, would probably play but messed up a bit.
Ferguson, the Cowboys’ second tight end, is likely to return for this game after missing last week with a concussion.
