Eagles left guard Isaac Seumalo is officially listed as questionable for Sunday’s game, but league sources have indicated the Eagles plan to start him Sunday if he’s healthy enough to go.
Seumalo has missed the last three games with a pec injury but has been healing and has felt pretty good at practice this week, getting reps with the first team at left guard.
The move back to Seumalo will be an unpopular one for Eagles fans, who have watched the Eagles go 3-0 with Stefen Wisniewski over the last three weeks. Wisniewski was also the left guard for last year’s Super Bowl run.
But Seumalo played well earlier this season and the Eagles really like his size and athleticism against a nasty and powerful Chicago defensive line.
Here’s the full injury report:
Out: LB D.J. Alexander (hamstring), CB Sidney Jones (hamstring), WR Mike Wallace (ankle), QB Carson Wentz (back)
Questionable: DE Michael Bennett (foot), CB Avonte Maddox (oblique), T Jason Peters (quadricep), G Seumalo (chest)
And an important update from Chicago:
Coach Nagy says that Eddie Jackson will be a game time decision for #PHIvsCHI.— Chicago Bears (@ChicagoBears) January 4, 2019
Nick Foles (ribs) was a full participant in practice Thursday and Friday and will be good to go against the Bears this weekend. He said earlier in the week he might wear some extra padding around his sore ribs that have been getting better every day.
There are no surprises among the players who are listed out. Wallace hasn’t yet done team drills and the team won’t rush him into a game without them. Wentz also didn’t practice all week.
Among the players listed as questionable, Bennett and Peters are definitely going to play in this game. Keep an eye on Peters, though, if he can’t finish the game. Maddox suffered that oblique injury in practice but is expected to be able to play.
