PHILADELPHIA — Cold weather seems to have brought germs into the Philadelphia Eagles’ locker room.
Wide receiver Alshon Jeffery and defensive end Steven Means missed practice Thursday, three days before a game at the Giants, with illnesses, according to the team. Here’s a look at Philly’s official injury report for the day.
OUT: Jeffery, Means
LIMITED: OG Stefen Wisniewski (ankle)
FULL: DE Derek Barnett (groin), TE Brent Celek (not injury related), TE Zach Ertz (concussion), S Rodney McLeod (quadricep), LB Joe Walker (neck)
It’s unclear whether Jeffery or Means’ status for Sunday’s game is in serious doubt, but they each have three days to recover. McLeod was back in full action Thursday after he was limited Wednesday, which is a good sign that’ll play against the Giants, and Celek returned after missing a day of practice to celebrate the birth of his son, Otto.
Wisniewski’s health is perhaps the greatest concern for the Birds. The team’s starting left guard, Wisniewski watched practice Wednesday and participated in stretching — but not much else — Thursday as he recovers from an ankle injury he suffered during Sunday’s win over the Rams.
Chance Warmack and Isaac Seumalo took turns filling in for Wisniewski Sunday and both struggled. Warmack lined up with the first-team offensive line at left guard during the position of practice Wednesday reporters were permitted to watch.
