Eagles Injury Update: Hicks, Kendricks should be OK; Darby questionable

It's still unclear whether or not the Eagles will have Ronald Darby for Monday night's game, but at least they'll have their linebackers. 

Both Jordan Hicks (calf) and Mychal Kendricks (hamstring) will be OK to play against Washington on Monday night, head coach Doug Pederson said. Both are listed as questionable. So is Wendell Smallwood (knee), but he practiced in full all week. 

"Both [linebackers] will practice today," Pederson said Saturday morning. "They're both doing well. Just to get a couple extra days of rest. And Mychal has actually practiced all week. Jordan's been the one we've kept out. Both of them will go today and we'll get a better understanding of where they're at but they'll be fine for the game."

Hicks said he hurt his calf in the last game overcompensating for his injured ankle. He said he will definitely play Monday night. 

Darby (ankle) is listed as questionable for the game, but earlier in the week Pederson said "stars have to align" for the cornerback to play this week. 

Darby, who dislocated his right ankle in Week 1, returned to practice for the first time this week. 

"[Darby has] looked well. It's just day by day with him," Pederson said. "We'll get through today's practice with him. Obviously, have limited his reps during practice. He is doing well and we'll get through today and tomorrow to make a decision for [the game]."

The Redskins will be without their star corner Josh Norman. Norman suffered a fractured a rib and damage to the lining of his lung in Washington's Week 4 loss to the Chiefs and has been out since. Left tackle Trent Williams and starting corner Bashaud Breeland are questionable.
