Eagles & Giants Announce Final Injury Reports for Thursday’s Game

One of the NFL’s longest rivalries will add another chapter tomorrow night. The Eagles are 12-4 this decade against the Giants, and will be looking to extend their recent dominance over the G-Men even further. However, the team will be without some notable players for the game.

  • Alexander and Gerry are two key special-teamers, so it’s worth keeping an eye on that part of the game on Thursday to see how much of an impact is made without them.
  • Losing Graham on top of already being without Rodney McLeod spells trouble for the Eagles secondary. Avonte Maddox will have to step up big-time in Graham’s absence.
  • Ngata being out means Fletcher Cox will have to try to dominate against double-teams throughout the entire game. Maybe Michael Bennett will slide in and play next to Cox.
  • Sproles hamstring issue has been lingering for over a month now. The team is desperate to get him back on the field and start helping a depleted running back corps.

The Giants also announced their injury report today, and will be without two players for tomorrow’s game.

  • Engram being out is a big help for the Eagles defense. The Eagles defense can focus on trying to contain Odell Beckham Jr. and Sterling Shepard.
  • The Eagles offensive line will be tested with Olivier Vernon playing in his first game of the season.

The Eagles will have to overcome a lot of injuries, but can certainly get back on track with a “W” tomorrow against a poor Giants team.
