Injury Impact: Eagles at Giants Report

PHILADELPHIA EAGLES

Questionable

OG Stefen Wisniewski (ankle)

Despite C Jason Kelce momentarily exiting practice earlier in the week and kicking a bucket of sorts, reports later revealed he was cleated and did not end up on the injury report, which is a relief for an already banged up offensive line.

Speaking of the offensive line, OG Wisniewski is still battling an ankle injury that he suffered in last weeks’ win over the Los Angeles Rams. Even if healthy, he has struggled mightily in the past two weeks, surrendering a combined 13 pressures on 69 pass blocking snaps. It’s also a concern that his absence would once again change the configuration of an offensive line that has had problems gelling and picking up stunts.

If Wisniewski can’t go, OG Chance Warmack likely replaces those snaps. No need for advanced stats here, Warmack has been bad this season and has failed to make any kind of positive impact when on the field.

NEW YORK GIANTS

Out

SAF Nat Berhe (hamstring)

Doubtful

SAF Landon Collins

Questionable

WR Roger Lewis (ankle)

WR Travis Rudolph (hamstring)

CB Brandon Dixon (heel/hamstring)

SAF Collins’ potential absence stands out as the only significant danger for the Giants. The first round standout has been on a tear lately, racking up 46 tackles, 1 interception, and 1 fumble recovery in the last four games. He would likely be tasked with covering Eagles TE Zach Ertz if he can go, if not that duty may fall to rumored Madden generated player SAF Andrew Adams.

The drop off from wide receivers Roger Lewis and Travis Rudolph to Kalif Raymond and Hunter Sharp is about as innocuously precipitous as missing a step on a stairwell, although not entirely insignificant. Sharp is an undrafted rookie from Utah State who has dressed for 1 game and has taken 0 career snaps. Raymond is a second year return man who has 1 career catch for 12 yards and 1 career rush for -1 yards.

SAF Berhe’s injury will mean his contribution on special teams will need to be replaced, but not much else.
