Ahead of the Super Bowl rematch against the Chiefs, the Eagles hit the practice field, showcasing a predominantly healthy roster. Dallas Goedert’s fractured forearm kept him out of practice, yet the team’s decision to not place him on injured reserve offered a glimmer of hope.
The injury report outlined Goedert’s absence alongside limited participation from safety Justin Evans, who might miss the upcoming game after weeks on IR. However, the Eagles anticipate the return of Cam Jurgens, Bradley Roby, and Grant Calcaterra against the Chiefs.
Jurgens’ comeback from a five-game foot injury stint strengthens the offensive line, while Roby’s return after three missed games bolsters the cornerback lineup. Calcaterra’s recovery from a concussion provides additional depth, crucial given Goedert’s absence.
Jack Stoll steps in as TE1, supported by Calcaterra and possibly Albert Okwuegbunam. The Eagles’ defensive strategy might see a rotation involving Roby, Sydney Brown, Eli Ricks, and James Bradberry for the pivotal game.
