Philadelphia could be without two of their key players for Sunday’s game against the Denver Broncos. During today’s press conference, Nick Sirianni stated that both Andre Dillard and Josh Sweat are questionable this week. Sweat has been in concussion protocol and is questionable since the protocol does not end until tomorrow.
Dillard reportedly hurt something during practice leading to the questionable status. Sirianni did say everyone was a full participant today, paving the way for Darius Slay and Avonte Maddox to be good against Denver. The way that Nick Sirianni spoke about Sweat made it seem like he would be okay but could not outright say just yet.
There were several players on yesterday's injury report including Javon Hargrave, but none of the players listed missed practice. Meanwhile, for the Broncos, things aren't looking as good. 14 players were named on yesterday's report. Seven of those players did not participate. Some of the inactive Broncos included top draft pick Patrick Surtain alongside several starting offensive linemen.
Andre Dillard is a big concern though, with how injury-prone Lane Johnson and Jordan Mailata are. If Dillard is out, the next tackle in line would likely be Jack Driscoll, leading Nate Herbig to take over at guard. Driscoll hasn’t played left tackle, so it’ll be interesting to see who the Eagles would go with if Mailata were to exit the game.
The Eagles are switching things up for Sunday, wearing black pants with white jerseys, a combination never worn before in franchise history.
