The big results from this season’s first injury report are good news. Miles Sanders is listed as a full participant.
Unless the Eagles discreetly try to calm him down again, it looks like Sanders is on his way to doing a full workload in Detroit. It remains to be seen what exactly this workload looks like. Boston Scott and Kenneth Jenwell will also score backhand touches. But it should be Sanders who leads the way in front of a black defense that was ranked second in the league by Football Outsiders last year.
Three players are listed as limited participants: Javon Hargrave, Derek Barnett and Josiah Scott.
Hargrave missed a large part of training camp with a toe injury. His return to practice is an encouraging sign. But it doesn’t seem to be 100%.
Barnett is a new addition to the injury report. You must have gotten buzzed in practice either last week or today.
Scott was injured shortly afterwards at the camp. The Eagles inserted it into the corner again after turning it into a safe during the summer. They probably plan it to provide depth in both the nickel and safety corner.
Jason Kelsey is notably absent from the Eagles injury report. This is after undergoing Elbow surgery ‘routine cleaning’ In early August. There was some question if Kelci would miss the first week…but he won’t.

Detroit Lions injury report (Wednesday)
The Lions, who ran a bodily camp under Dan Campbell, are little more than vultures.
Our friends in Pride of Detroit He wrote that Tommy Kraemer was a leading candidate to replace his old friend Halapoulivaati Vaitai in the starting line-up with Big V who was recently on injured reserve. But now it looks like Kraemer may be unable to play, leaving the Lions to adjust their offensive line to find the best fit. Not perfect.
Campbell noted that defensive rotational intervention by Levi Onuzurik is unlikely to play against the Eagles.
Pro Bowl Center Frank Ragno and Kicker Austin Seibert in particular were among the limited participants. Ragnow being below 100% when the Lions’ offensive line is already dealing with some issues isn’t great for them. If Seibert can’t play, the Lions are ready to call in Aldrick Rosas from the coaching squad to handle kicking duties.
