It's unclear who will replace them in the starting lineup, but Najee Goode or Joe Walker will take Hicks' spot. Derek Barnett or Chris Long will take Graham's (see 10 players to watch). During pregame warmups, Goode and Barnett lined up with the first team. 

Nick Foles (elbow), Paul Turner (shoulder), Sidney Jones (Achilles), Josh Andrews (hand), Beau Allen (pec), Billy Brown and Destiny Vaeao will also miss the game. Brown missed practice on Tuesday and Vaeao left early with an unspecified injury.

Without Foles, Matt McGloin will be the Eagles' backup quarterback and will take over after Carson Wentz comes out. That likely won't be until the second half, as is customary in the third preseason game.

Bryce Treggs (sore legs), Wendell Smallwood (hamstring) and Jason Peters (personal reasons) all return to the field tonight after missing last week's game.
