Eagles Injury Update: Things Aren't Looking Good for Corners

On Monday, Doug Pederson admitted the Eagles were hurting physically and emotionally after Sunday's 48-7 loss to the Saints. 

With four days to go until their matchup against the suddenly-surging Giants, Pederson delivered some bits of notable injury news during his press conference Wednesday. 

• Jalen Mills (foot) isn't ready to practice yet

Jason Kelce Gets Goosebumps Explaining Why He's Returning to Eagles in 2021

Philadelphia Eagles Release Full 2021 Season Schedule

• Jason Kelce (elbow) is doing well and will practice today

• Rasul Douglas (knee) and Avonte Maddox (knee) are day to day but are unlikely to practice today 

• Tim Jernigan is expected to have a "good" role in Sunday's game 

The big takeaway from that is the corners are hurting. Sidney Jones' hamstring injury was already ruled as a "week to week" injury. So that means the Eagles might very well go into this game without Jones, Mills, Douglas and Maddox. 

If all four of those guys are missing, we're looking at a starting cornerback trio of Chandon Sullivan, De'Vante Bausby and Cre'Von LeBlanc. That's not great going against Odell Beckham Jr. and the Giants. 

The official injury report will be released later this afternoon.
