With Dallas (10-4) almost losing to the Texans a few weeks ago and losing in overtime last week to the Jaguars, they will definitely be looking to muster up as much momentum as they can going into the matchup Vs. the Eagles (13-1). With the Eagles trying to clinch the number 1 seed and Dak Prescott throwing seven interceptions since Thanksgiving, this game is going to be very interesting. Let’s take a look at the Eagles Vs Cowboys Injury Report for Week 16.
Philadelphia Eagles Injury Report Week 16
While the Eagles were still hopeful that Jalen Hurts would be able to play this Saturday in Dallas, Nick Siriani gave the unfortunate news that he will be sidelined this weekend. Luckily, the Eagles have arguably one of the best receiver groups that they have ever seen, with A.J. Brown and DeVonta Smith, as well as Quez Watkins.
Jalen Hurts Injury Update
Jalen Hurts is dealing with a right shoulder sprain, which of course will drastically affect how he throws the ball. He was a non-participant on the first and second injury reports of the week. The Eagles typically don’t play players who miss multiple practices in a week, and head coach Nick Siriani confirmed on Thursday that Gardner Minshew will be his replacement for Saturday. Keep in mind that Minshew scored 17-plus fantasy points seven times as a rookie in 2019.
Zach Pascal Injury Update
Zach Pascal was also listed as DNP for the second day in a row, indicating that he might also be out for the Christmas Eve game. Pascal is still under concussion protocol, and with the league continuing to err on the side of caution as far as concussions go, he is still in jeopardy of missing this game.
Tyree Jackson Update
Tight End Tyree Jackson was listed as limited due to non-rest reasons. Whether he plays or not will likely not affect the offense much, as Dallas Goedert, Jack Stoll, and Grant Calcaterra are all ahead of him in the depth chart.
C.J. Gardner-Johnson Injury Update
CJ Gardner-Johnson suffered a lacerated kidney in November and is still recovering on IR. The injury isn’t expected to keep him out for the remainder of the season, but it is unclear when we can expect him to be able to return to play.
Two players that were listed under Full Participation were Reed Blankenship and K’Von Wallace. Safety Blankenship missed Week 15 due to a knee injury but is set to be the starting safety in Week 16. Wallace was listed as DNP on Tuesday but was upgraded to a full participant on Wednesday.
Dallas Cowboys Injury Report Week 16
With nobody officially ruled out for the Cowboys game against the Eagles, it is looking like Dallas will have most of their starters ready to for Christmas Eve. A victory for the Cowboys would keep their division title hopes alive. The Cowboys are 6-2 since the return of Dak Prescott, with both losses occurring in overtime. And between Ezekiel Elliot and Tony Pollard, the Cowboys have one of the best run games in the NFL.
Micah Parsons Injury Update
Defensman Micah Parsons was listed as out in the beginning of the week with an illness. He got banged up over the last several weeks after primarily becoming a pass rusher, and is now apparently getting over a winter cold. Head coach Mike McCarthy said Parsons was able to do everything in practice on Thursday, which means he will likely play on Saturday.
Other names on the Cowboys Injury Report under ‘unspecified’ include defensive end Dorance Armstrong (knee), wide receiver Noah Brown (foot), tight end Jake Ferguson (concussion), Safety Jayron Kearse (shoulder/back), and defensive end Demarcus Lawrence (foot).
