Eagles-Raiders injury report, with analysis

Following their "mini bye" after a Thursday night matchup with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the Philadelphia Eagles should be well rested for their Week 7 matchup in Las Vegas against the Raiders.

Here is the final Friday Eagles-Raiders injury report, with analysis.



S Anthony Harris (hands/groin): Ah, the old "hands/groin" combo injury. If Harris can't go, Marcus Epps would likely start. It's also worth noting that the 21-day practice window was activated for K'Von Wallace to come off of IR. 

UPDATE: Harris has since been ruled out. The Eagles promoted Elijah Riley from the practice squad.

OL Jack Anderson (hamstring): Anderson would likely be a healthy scratch even without the hammy issue.

Notable players on IR, PUP, suspension, etc.

DE Brandon Graham (IR): Graham's season is over with a ruptured Achilles. On the field, Graham was arguably the Eagles' best defensive player in 2020. It's clear since his loss that the Eagles miss his contributions as a pass rusher and run stopper, and the Eagles have not been able to adequately replace him. Off the field, Graham has unlimited energy and positivity, and he is a player that you just want to have around if you're a head coach in the NFL. 

RG Brandon Brooks (IR): Brooks suffered a pectoral injury against the 49ers. It's "only" a pec strain, as opposed to a tear, so while he'll likely miss time (about 8 weeks, per Lane Johnson) on injured reserve, it's not a season-ending injury. 

LG Isaac Seumalo (IR): Seumalo was carted off the field in the Eagles' loss to the Cowboys. His season is over after having surgery for a Lisfranc injury.

S K'Von Wallace (IR): Wallace separated his shoulder while trying to tackle Ezekiel Elliott in the first quarter against the Cowboys Week 3. The Eagles activated Wallace's 21-day practice window earlier this week.

TE Tyree Jackson (IR): Jackson suffered a broken bone in his back during joint practices with the New England Patriots. The Eagles activated Jackson's 21-day practice window earlier this week, though Nick Sirianni said on Friday that Jackson won't play Sunday in Vegas.

• OG Sua Opeta (COVID): Opeta has been on the COVID list for a few weeks now.

TE Nick Bowers: Back of the roster guy.

UPDATE: TE Darren Waller, arguably the Raiders' best player, is a late addition to the Raiders' injury report, and is listed as questionable. He is reportedly a game-time decision. 

Notable players on IR, PUP, suspension, etc.

LG Richie Incognito (IR): Incognito missed the first couple of games while still recovering from a torn Achilles suffered during the 2020 season. He returned Week 3, but promptly injured his calf, and landed on IR. John Simpson has started at LG in relief of Incognito.

RG Denzelle Good (IR): Good was the Raiders' Week 1 starter at RG. Alex Leatherwood has since slid inside from RT to RG, and Brandon Parker has filled in at RT.

• CB Trayvon Mullen (IR): Mullen was a second-round pick of the Raiders in 2019. He has played in 36 games, starting 30, and was a starter for the 2021 Raiders. Good career ball production — 28 PBUs and 4 INTs. The Eagles have played teams all season long who were missing starting corners.

LB Nicholas Morrow (IR): Morrow filled up the stat sheet in 2020, collecting 78 tackles, 3 sacks, 6 QB hits, 9 pass breakups, a forced fumble, and an INT. He injured his foot before the start of the season, and has not yet played in 2021. 

CB Damon Arnette (IR): Arnette was a first-round pick of the Raiders in 2020. He played in 9 games as a rookie, starting seven. In 2021, he has played in 4 games, but is not a starter. 3 career pass breakups, 0 INTs. Disappointing start to his NFL career.

DT Gerald McCoy (Suspended): McCoy got popped for PEDs.
