Eagles rookie receiver Quez Watkins missed practice Saturday morning with an upper-body injury, according to a pool report.

Watkins, the rookie 6th-round pick from Southern Mississippi, is listed as day-to-day.

It’s not known when he got hurt, but the Eagles’ most recent practice before Saturday was Thursday morning. 

The Eagles’ practice was moved inside the indoor bubble because of rain and was closed to all media other than two pool reporters.

Lane Johnson missed a sixth day of practice with a lower-body injury, but head coach Doug Pederson said he’s still considered day-to-day. Johnson last practiced a week ago Friday.  

Pederson said Johnson is “doing fine” and said he’s not concerned with him missing opening day in Washington in 15 days.

Vinny Curry (lower body) also remains out. He hasn’t practiced since Tuesday.

Sidney Jones, who returned to practice on a limited basis on Thursday, participated in team work on Saturday. According to the pool report, Jones practiced with a sleeve on his left leg. It was Jones’ first session doing team drills since he got hurt on Aug. 18, the second day of full-team work.

Edge rusher Joe Ostman returned after missing Thursday’s practice with a lower-body injury and with Derek Barnett, Genard Avery and Curry all out Saturday, Ostman worked with the first-team defensive line.

Avery is day-to-day with a lower-body injury. Barnett, who’s missed all of camp with an ankle injury, was out at practice in the indoor Bubble in uniform and with a helmet working on the side with trainers. He’s listed as week-to-week.


Also back Saturday was safety Marcus Epps (lower body), who missed practice on Thursday.

Andre Dillard, out for the year with a biceps injury, watched practice from the sideline wearing a sling.

Running back Miles Sanders (lower body), who is “week-to-week,” watched practice from the side. Defensive tackle Javon Hargrave (upper body) is out for “multiple weeks,” according to the Eagles. 

Tight end Dallas Goedert had a maintanence day.
