Left guard Stefen Wisniewski's status for Monday night's game is up in the air.
While Wiz has practiced in a limited fashion this week, he's questionable for the game thanks to an ankle injury that kept him out of last week's game.
Wisniewski left the Rams game early and then missed the Giants game with a right ankle injury. This week, he has been seen with the ankle taped and with a heavier black brace on the ankle.
"Wiz continues to get better," Pederson said. "He's practiced, obviously, in a little bit of a limited fashion. But again, he's another one that's coming along and we'll see where he's at today."
In his place last week, Chance Warmack played well. And it seems likely that the team would err on the side of caution with Wisniewski. They'd prefer to have him completely healthy for the playoffs. So if he's iffy for Monday, expect him to be inactive.
Meanwhile, Jalen Mills (ankle) and Derek Barnett (groin), who missed practice Friday, appear likely to be ready to play Monday, even though Mills is also listed as questionable. Pederson said the day of rest was good for both of them. Mills and Barnett both practiced Saturday.
Mychal Kendricks (foot) is also questionable but was a full participant in Saturday's practice.
This week, even with an extra day, Pederson lightened the load for his players. He eliminated a practice and replaced it with a walkthrough. He wanted to give his team a rest and give his injured players time to heal after a three-game road trip.
The Eagles could have the No. 1 seed wrapped up by the time they play Monday if the Vikings lose to the Packers Saturday night, but Pederson claimed the plan won't change. They have prepared all week for their starters to play.
"Win the game," Pederson said when asked what the plan was. "To play our best players and win. I think it's important that they continue to play. If we're in that position, if we're fortunate enough to be in that position to rest, I'll make a decision at that time. But I think it's important in these next couple of games to continue to play."
Pederson wouldn't comment on how he'd handle the Cowboys game if that game ends up being meaningless.
Carson Wentz, who had surgery to repair his torn ACL, is expected to be at Monday's game, according to Pederson. But because Wentz is still on crutches, he won't be on the sideline.
Thanks to playing at 8:30 on Monday, Pederson was able to push the team's schedule back a little bit so his players and coaches can spend Christmas morning with their families.
"Listen, you don't get these times back," he said. "It's too important to me and my family. I want to make sure that these players with young kids, coaches with young kids get to spend Christmas morning together."
