Asia's Tech News Daily

A victory could help springboard the Eagles into an easier part of their schedule that begins next week against the winless Detroit Lions.

GOEDERT AND ERTZ: How Dallas Goedert forced Eagles to trade Zach Ertz; DeVonta Smith has first Alabama reunion

While the Eagles will be playing their first game without tight end Zach Ertz, they are getting two key offensive starters back in tight end Dallas Goedert, who missed the last game because he was on the COVID-19 list; and right tackle Lane Johnson is returning after missing three games for a mental health illness.

Eagles used their RB, and he gets hurt

The Eagles opened the game with a strong opening drive, keyed by handoffs to Miles Sanders.

Sanders, used sparingly the last four games, carried 5 times for 25 yards on that drive. He had back-to-back carries for 16 yards after Dallas Goedert’s 24-yard reception gave the Eagles a first down at the Raiders’ 14.

One play later, Jalen Hurts hit Kenny Gainwell over the middle for a 13-yard TD.

But on the next series, Sanders was hurt after catching a pass from Hurts that ended up losing three yards. Sanders suffered a leg injury and was helped off the field. He was then taken on a cart into the locker room.

The Eagles announced that Sanders has an ankle injury and his return is questionabl

Eagles safety, Raiders star out

The Eagles announced that starting safety Anthony Harris isn’t playing Sunday because of both hand and groin injuries. Harris had played every defensive snap until suffering the injury in the first quarter against Tampa Bay.

Harris returned later in that game. But apparently his injury didn’t improve enough to play.

That means Rodney McLeod, playing in just his fourth game this season after recovering from ACL surgery last December, will be counted on to play the entire game. McLeod has played 72% of the snaps in each of the three games. Marcus Epps will start next to him.

As for the Raiders, star tight end Darren Waller was ruled out with an ankle injury. Waller was added to the injury report Saturday and listed as questionable. He’s a key part of the Raiders’ offense, with 33 catches for 378 yards.

Eagles inactives

In addition to Harris, the Eagles left the following players off the game-day roster: CB Tay Gowan, who was acquired in the Ertz trade, CB Mac McCain, C/G Jack Anderson, G Sua Opeta and DT Marlon Tuipulotu.
