The Philadelphia Eagles will have seven players inactive for their Sunday Night Football matchup against the Miami Dolphins.
Reed Blankenship: Unfortunately, Blankenship is unable to play due to a rib injury sustained last week. This will be his second missed game of the season.
Patrick Johnson: Normally a reliable presence on special teams, Johnson will not be active for the first time this season.
Tanner McKee (3rd QB): As a rookie, McKee will serve as the team’s emergency quarterback. However, his opportunity to play will only arise if Jalen Hurts and Marcus Mariota suffer injuries.
Moro Ojomo: Ojomo, a rookie defensive tackle, has played the past two weeks. However, with the defensive line fully healthy once again, he will not be active for this game.
Albert Okwuegbunam: With three other tight ends available, Okwuegbunam will not be dressing for this matchup.
Rashaad Penny: Once again, the running back will not be active.
Bradley Roby: Roby, who was recently acquired by the Eagles, is unable to play due to a shoulder injury.
Reed Blankenship (ribs) and Bradley Roby (shoulder) are the Eagles’ only injured players and will not be participating in this game.
Sydney Brown (hamstring), Jalen Carter (ankle), Darius Slay (knee), and Marlon Tuipulotu (triceps) all missed the previous game due to injuries, but they have been cleared to play and are active for this matchup.
Lane Johnson (ankle) and Eli Ricks (knee) left last week’s game against the Jets with injuries. However, both players fully participated in Friday’s practice and have been deemed active for this game. Milton Williams (ankle), who also participated fully in practice, is also active for the Eagles.
Dallas Goedert (groin) and DeVonta Smith (hamstring) were limited in Friday’s practice, but they have no specific game status and will be available for the game.
Yesterday, the team elevated cornerback Mekhi Garner and wide receiver Julio Jones from the practice squad. Garner will be making his second consecutive appearance, while Jones, a seasoned 13-year veteran, will be making his Philadelphia debut after signing with the team earlier this week. – Written by Owen Boyle
