Eagles injury report: Latest on Miles Sanders, Dallas Goedert, Derek Barnett before matchup vs. Saints (UPDAT – nj.com






Philadelphia Eagles practice at the NovaCare Complex, Nov. 18, 2021
The Eagles are monitoring the injuries of three notable players entering Sunday’s Week 11 matchup against the New Orleans Saints.
Tight end Dallas Goedert (concussion), defensive end Derek Barnett (neck) and running back Miles Sanders (ankle/injured reserve) are among the banged-up players in the Eagles’ locker room.
However, during his Friday press conference, head coach Nick Sirianni said Goedert, who is in the league’s concussion protocol, is expected to play against the Saints. Goedert signed a four-year contract extension with the Eagles after practice on Friday.
UPDATE (3:21 p.m. ET): Goedert didn’t have an injury status heading into the weekend, so he has been cleared from concussion protocol and will play Sunday, barring a setback.
Barnett, who recently injured his neck, is going to be listed as questionable for Sunday’s matchup. Sirianni wouldn’t elaborate on what caused the injury but said the team is still receiving information from the medical staff about the ailment. Barnett will likely be a game-time decision at Lincoln Financial Field.
While all signs point toward Sanders coming off injured reserve after a three-week absence, Sirianni played coy about his status. Sirianni said the team wants to give Sanders one more day before deciding on his status for Sunday. The Eagles opened up Sanders’ 21-day practice window on Tuesday, so he still has more than two weeks to be activated from injured reserve.

If Sanders were to be activated, the Eagles would need to make a roster reduction, as they are currently at the 53-man limit. Sanders would likely be eased back into the running back rotation with Jordan Howard, Boston Scott and Kenny Gainwell supplementing the featured back’s carries. Sirianni said Wednesday that if Sanders is healthy, he will be the Eagles’ top back.
Guard Jack Anderson (hamstring) and linebacker Davion Taylor (knee) have been limited in practice this week. Though, Taylor said Thursday that he expects to play against New Orleans.
UPDATE (3:21 p.m. ET): Below is the Eagles’ official injury report, which doesn’t feature Taylor or Goedert:
Questionable: DE Derek Barnett (neck)
OUT: G Jack Anderson (hamstring)
UPDATE (4:46 p.m. ET): The Saints have released their injury report, and they will be without Pro Bowl running back Alvin Kamara and both starting offensive tackles:
OUT: OT Ryan Ramczyk (knee), OT Terron Armstead (knee/shoulder), RB Alvin Kamara (knee), DE Tanoh Kpassagnon (ankle), DT Malcolm Roach (knee), WR Ty Montgomery (hand)
Questionable: QB Taysom Hill (foot)
