The Philadelphia Eagles could certainly be on their way to 12-1 after Sunday’s game. But, they’ll do that with three of their players.
In their NFC East match-up against the New York Giants, Kyron Johnson, Arryn Sips, and Reed Blankenship were all ruled out.
EAGLES INJURIES: WEEK 14
In the first half of the game, safety Reed Blankenship was the first to go down. With an apparent leg injury, he was helped off the field.
Blankenship was filling in for C.J. Gardner-Johnson after the safety was injured two weeks ago against the Green Bay Packers. The 23-year-old has played in six games, totaling 12 tackles and one interception for four yards. Now subbing in for Blankenship will be K’Von Wallace, who has been with Philadelphia since 2020.
Following Blankenship’s injury, punter Arryn Siposs was injured. In the second quarter, Siposs’ punt was blocked. In an attempt to recover the ball, he went down, and wasn’t able to make it to the sideline without assistance. After being examined in the medical tent, Siposs was carted off to the locker room.
With Siposs out, rookie Britain Covey will be the replacement holder and if needed kicker Jake Elliott will handle punting.
Rookie linebacker Kyron Johnson also sustained a shoulder injury. He did not record a statistic before departing.
