Eagles Injury Report, Week 9: Jenkins, Watkins both questionable against Saints

New, 1 comment

Philadelphia has a slew of important players listed on the injury report for Monday's game against New Orleans.


The Philadelphia Eagles face perhaps the most important game of the season on Monday night against the New Orleans Saints in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

Andy Reid's club desperately needs a win, and will have to do it with some guys playing through injuries.

Defensive tackle Cullen Jenkins didn't practice Thursday and is listed as questionable with a nagging knee injury. Safety Nate Allen has been limited this week and is a game-time decision. Against the Saints and their high-powered passing game, the Eagles could certainly use the maturing Allen.

Guard Danny Watkins is the third and final player listed as questionable, but he hasn't practiced at all with an ankle issue.

Others include cornerback Brandon Boykin and defensive end Phillip Hunt. Boykin has been practicing with a toe injury throughout the week but is listed as probable and should be able to play. Hunt is also probable on the injury report after suffering a calf injury.

Wide receiver Mardy Gilyard is doubtful to play after suffering a hamstring injury against the Atlanta Falcons last Sunday.
