The Philadelphia Eagles and Chicago Bears will meet in the NFC Wild Card Game.

You can view daily practice participation along with estimated and official game statuses for all of these players on our Wild Card Round Injury Report.

Eagles Injuries

  • QB Nick Foles (ribs)
  • WR Mike Wallace (ankle)
  • LB D.J. Alexander (hamstring)
  • LG Isaac Seumalo (pec)
  • CB Sidney Jones (hamstring)

Notable players on IR: RB Corey Clement (knee), RB Jay Ajayi (knee), CB Jalen Mills (foot), CB Ronald Darby (knee), FS Rodney McLeod (knee), DE Derek Barnett (shoulder), WR Mack Hollins (hernia)

Head coach Doug Pederson has already stated that Super Bowl-winning quarterback Nick Foles (bruised ribs) is good to go for Sunday’s matchup against the Bears.

Of course, it’s not ideal to be facing Khalil Mack and the league’s best defense at less than 100%. It’s unclear whether or not Carson Wentz will suit up and serve as an emergency backup, so second-year quarterback Nate Sudfeld could be the next-man up if Foles re-aggravates his injury at Soldier Field.

Elsewhere, field-stretcher Mike Wallace should be considered questionable, while the defense could continue to be without the services of two key contributors in D.J. Alexander and Sidney Jones.

Bears Injuries

  • WR Taylor Gabriel (shoulder)
  • WR Anthony Miller (shoulder)
  • WR Allen Robinson (ribs)
  • S Eddie Jackson (ankle)
  • OLB Aaron Lynch (elbow)

Notable players on IR: CB Bryce Callahan (foot), TE Dion Sims (concussion), TE Zach Miller (knee), OLB Sam Acho (pec)

Bears receivers Allen Robinson (ribs), Taylor Gabriel (shoulder) and Anthony Miller (shoulder) are all banged up entering the Wild Card round. A-Rob didn’t suit up in Week 17, while Gabriel and Miller were each injured during the Bears’ second-ending victory over the Vikings.

The Chicago defense also isn’t completely healthy, as safety Eddie Jackson (ankle) and outside linebacker Aaron Lynch (elbow) should be considered questionable.
