Eight Eagles are limited participants at practice; Cooper Rush to start at QB for Cowboys

Posted on October 12, 2022

The Eagles held a walkthrough Wednesday, not a full-blown practice — thus the first injury report for the Cowboys’ game is an estimation, according to the team.

In Dallas, Cowboys coach Mike McCarthy said he is preparing to start Cooper Rush at quarterback against the Eagles on Sunday night.


Only cornerback Josh Jobe did not practice.

Sixty percent of the Eagles’ offensive line are listed as “limited participation.”

Here is the list of limited participants:

  • Guard Landon Dickerson (ankle)
  • Kicker Jake Elliott (right ankle). He didn’t play at Arizona.
  • Running back Kenneth Gainwell (rib)
  • Linebacker Patrick Johnson (concussion). He didn’t play at Arizona.
  • Center Jason Kelce (ankle)
  • Cornerback Avonte Maddox (ankle).This is the first time Maddox practiced after missing the last two games.
  • Tackle Jordan Mailata (shoulder). He did not practice last week and didn’t play at Arizona.
  • Guard Isaac Seumalo (ankle)


McCarthy said: “We are preparing for Cooper [Rush] to start against the Eagles.”

In a story posted on the Cowboys’ website, McCarthy said Dak Prescott continues his recovery from Sept. 12 thumb surgery and will go through the “quarterback school” drills and will do some light throwing to receivers but is out for Sunday night’s game in Philadelphia.

Will Grier will be the back-up to Rush.

More interesting news from Dallas: Defensive stars Micah Parsons and DeMarcus Lawrence were limited in practice and are questionable for the game.

Parsons suffered a groin injury and Lawrence has an undisclosed injury that both sustained in Sunday’s game against the Rams.

The questionable designation means a “player is not certain to play.”
