The Eagles Have a Grand Total of One Receiver from the 53-Man Roster Practicing Today

Eagles practice update, and it’s not good.

Somehow the injury situation continues to get worse, despite the fact that we’ve already compiled a laundry list of guys who are currently on the shelf. The shelf is full. There’s no more room.

But look at this:

Opportunity for John Hightower, perhaps? –

One receiver.

They have one receiver from the 53-man roster practicing on Thursday, just three days out from Sunday’s game in San Francisco.

As it stands, the pass catching corps looks like this:

  1. Zach Ertz – healthy
  2. Greg Ward – healthy
  3. Dallas Goedert – fractured ankle
  4. DeSean Jackson – hamstring injury
  5. Jalen Reagor – on injured reserve with torn thumb ligament
  6. J.J. Arcega-Whiteside – calf injury
  7. Alshon Jeffery – returning from Lisfranc surgery
  8. John Hightower – not practicing today for some reason
  9. Quez Watkins – not yet activated from IR
  10. Richard Rodgers – healthy
  11. Miles Sanders – limited with a glute issue

Even the running back is not 100%, so it’s gonna have to be some combination of Ertz, Ward, Rodgers, Deontay Burnett, Travis Fulgham, Marcus Green, Hakeem Butler and/or whomever else they can pull off the scrap heap or practice squad for Sunday night.

It’s gonna be a disaster. San Francisco went into New York after losing their QB, #1 running back, and star defensive end, and still beat the Giants by 27 points. What are they going to do at home to a depleted and pitiful Eagles team?
