The Philadelphia Eagles will be down two players in their Week 10 game against the Washington Commanders.
On Saturday the team released their final injury report, which includes cornerbacks Avonte Maddox and Josh Jobe. Both players have sustained hamstring injuries.
CB AVONTE MADDOX OUT
Last week in Philadelphia’s Week 9 victory against the Houston Texans, Avonte Maddox sustained a hamstring injury. The cornerback didn’t participate in practice this week, and is now listed as out for Monday’s game against the Washington Commanders. Monday’s game will be the third game Maddox has missed. He was also out during Jacksonville’s and Arizona’s games with an ankle injury.
In Maddox’s absence, Josiah Scott will likely take over as the Eagles’ primary slot corner. However, Scott was limited this week in practice due to his ankle.
Scott was a 2020 fourth-round pick is a downgrade, but is used to seeing playing time. In seven games this season, he’s completed eight total tackles and one pass deflection. Scott has allowed a 127.5 passer rating compared to Maddox’s 77.5 rating when targeted this season.
Also on the injury report is cornerback Josh Jobe. Jobe was an undrafted free agent, signing with the Eagles this past offseason. His work on special teams will allow room for Andre Chachere. Chachere was recently signed from the practice squad and should add depth to the roster.
As for the Commanders, Washington will have three players out with two more questionable.
Kickoff begins at 8:15 PM on Monday, November 14, as the Eagles play to keep their streak alive.
