Philadelphia Eagles Week 13 Injury Report

The Philadelphia Eagles have had a disastrous season and much of the blame can be put on injuries. They are playing without 3 of the biggest playmakers. It is nearly impossible to win with the injury-plagued season they have had thus far. The Eagles are also playing without 4 of their 5 original starting lineman. It should be interesting to see how the Eagles matchup against Dallas:

Michael Vick (QB), Concussion: Out

Vick has only played 1 full season in his 11 year career. Of course, this year is no different. Vick has only played 9 games and will be missing their week 13 match-up against the Cowboys. Nick Foles will once again start and he should fear the Dallas defense, especially Demarcus Ware. After all, Vick did suffer his concussion against Dallas.

LeSean McCoy (RB), Concussion: Out

McCoy has had an inconsistent season, but only because the amount of carries he gets varies depending on what Andy Reid calls. Fortunately for the Eagles, Bryce Brown filled in nicely against the Panthers rushing for 178 yards and 2 touchdowns.

Jason Avant (WR), Hamstring: Probable

Avant has zero touchdowns this year and it does not seem like he is having the season the team envisioned. He has been banged up throughout the season and is likely to play against the Cowboys.

The Offensive Line (Jon Dorenbos, King Dunlap, Danny Watkins, and Dallas Reynolds)

Every one of these players except for Reynolds are expected to play but there’s a chance that they do not. This means bad news for Foles, and good news for Dallas linebacker DeMarcus Ware. Reynolds’ status is questionable. If Dorenbos does not play, the Eagles will have to resort to their 3rd string center.

Other Notable Injuries:

Riley Cooper (WR), Knee, Probable. Stanley Havili (FB), Ankle, Probable. Fletcher Cox (DT), Non-injury related reasons.
