The Philadelphia Eagles released their third and final official injury report Friday ahead of their Week 14 game against the New York Giants.
The Eagles eliminated one player: Shaun Bradley.
Bradley, who leads the team in special teams scoring percentage, suffered a hamstring injury against the Tennessee Titans and did not practice this week. The Eagles will likely temporarily elevate Christian Elliss from the practice squad for the second game in a row. They may have done it even though Bradley wasn’t hurt… but now this maneuver makes even more sense.
Quez Waktins and Kyzir White are notably listed with no play status after being listed as limited on Wednesday and Thursday. They are ready for Sunday.
Avonte Maddox is still on injured reserve, but the Eagles opened his 21-day training window earlier this week. It looks like there’s a chance he could return to the starting lineup this weekend. The Eagles have until 4:00 p.m. EST Saturday to activate Maddox from IR to the active roster. Note that they currently have a spot to fill on the roster, so it’s not like they need to make a move to free up space for him.

NEW YORK GIANTS INJURY REPORT (FRIDAY)
The big news is that the Giants have deemed Saquon Barkley questionable. He was restricted to training for the second day in a row. The Giants don’t seem super confident he’ll play:
Brian Daboll on Saquon Barkley (neck) added to injury report “Week 14 neck a little sore.”
Will he play on Sunday: “I hope so”
No doubt for Sunday: “Probably to see”

Barkley has accounted for 60% of New York’s total yardage and 30.8% of their offensive touchdowns this season. He was instrumental in getting the Giants off to a hot start earlier this year. However, his efficiency numbers have been dropping since Week 6 and the team has struggled. Leaning so heavily on Barkley apparently took its toll.
If Barkley can’t play, the Giants have Matt Breida and Gary Brightwell at running back. Breida has 34 carries for 112 yards (3.3 average) while Brightwell has nine carries for 50 yards (5.6 average).
Elsewhere on the Giants’ injury report, they deemed starting cornerback Adoree’ Jackson and starting defensive tackle Leonard Williams questionable. They are two of their best defenders. It’s also worth noting that the G-Men are missing starting safety Xavier McKinney, who is on the reserve/non-football injured reserve. The Eagles must be able to take advantage of this defense.
Offensive linemen Shane Lemieux and Joshua Ezeudu are also absent. If they were healthy, one of them could start at left guard. Instead, the Giants seem set to go with Nick Gates or IR activation candidate Ben Bredeson. No matter who they choose, the Giants don’t offer a fantastic option there.
