Week 4’s Sunday Night Football matchup between the Philadelphia Eagles and San Francisco 49ers is the ultimate battle of attrition. These might literally be the two most injured teams in the NFL.
It’s actually wild. It’s so bad the Eagles had only one WR able to practise this week. Here’s a list of players either out or hurting for both sides:
Eagles: RB Miles Sanders (glute), WR Alshon Jeffery (foot), WR DeSean Jackson (hamstring), WR Jalen Reagor (thumb), WR J.J. Arcega-Whiteside (calf), TE Dallas Goedert (ankle), OT Jason Peters (illness), OT Lane Johnson (ankle), OT Andre Dillard (biceps), G Brandon Brooks (achilles), G Isaac Seumalo (knee), DT Fletcher Cox (abdomen), DE Vinny Curry (hamstring), CB Avonte Maddox (ankle)
49ers: QB Jimmy Garoppolo (ankle), RB Raheem Mostert (knee), RB Tevin Coleman (knee), WR Deebo Samuel (knee), TE George Kittle (knee), TE Jordan Reed (knee), C Weston Richburg (knee), edge Nick Bosa (knee), edge Dee Ford (back), DL Solomon Thomas (knee), LB Dre Greenlaw (quadricep), CB Emmanuel Moseley (concussion), CB Richard Sherman (calf), CB K’Waun Williams (hip), CB Ahkello Witherspoon (hamstring)
All of that naturally factors into what might happen Sunday evening.
