The Philadelphia Eagles have constantly been suffering from injury throughout the entire year, and this week is no different. Here is a look at the Eagles’ injuries for Week 6:
Colt Anderson, S (Knee): Probable
Anderson has only played a few games this week and is likely to play in Week 6. The Eagles will be fine with or without him.
Jason Avant, WR (Wrist): Probable
Jason Avant is listed as probable for the Eagles’ game against the Detroit Lions. With Avant likely to play, he will be able to make a solid contribution to the team and should help Michael Vick keep his turnovers down.
Bryce Brown, RB (Shoulder): Probable
The Eagles’ backup running back Bryce Brown is slightly banged up, but expected to play. This should give Lesean McCoy a few more carries which will be a good thing for McCoy and the Eagles.
Riley Cooper, WR (Collarbone): Probable
Cooper has not taking a single snap this season due to his injured collarbone. Cooper’s absence has not affected Michael Vick, because he has accounted for a total of 2 touchdowns over the past 2 years.
Jon Dorenbos, LS (Ankle): Probable
Jon Dorenbos has a banged up ankle but his job should not be too affected by it.
King Dunlap, OT (Hamstring): Probable
This massive offensive tackle for the Eagles will likely be playing against the Detroit Lions. He will have a tough matchup against the Lions front line, including Ndamukong Suh, and Kyle Vanden Bosch.
Akeem Jordan, LB (Hamstring): Probable
Akeem Jordan has not played for the past few weeks but the Eagles have found ways to play without him. Expect him to be on the field Sunday but if not, the Eagles are already prepared.
Other Notable Injuries:
Stanley Havili (FB), Mychal Kendricks (LB), Derek Landri (DT), and Darryl Tapp (DE) are all listed as probable for Sunday’s versus the Detroit Lions.
