The Eagles will be without a pair of defensive backs as they host the Dolphins’ No. 1 offense.
Safety Reed Blankenship (ribs) and nickelback Bradley Roby (shoulder) were both ruled out Friday and officially inactive.
Here is the complete list of inactive people for the Eagles:
S red blankenship (ribs)
CB Bradley Roby (shoulder)
QB Tanner McKee
RB Rashad Penny
T Albert Okwuegbunam
DT Moro Ojomo
OLB Patrick Johnson
While the Eagles are without Blankenship and Roby, they will have back Darius Slay (knee) after missing last week and rookie Sidney Brown (hamstring) after missing the past three weeks.
Jalen Carter (ankle) will also return after missing the Jets game. Lane Johnson (ankle) is also good after leaving the Week 6 game in the first quarter.
The Eagles on Saturday elevated WR Julio Jones and DB Mekhi Garner from their practice squad. Both are active.
This will be Jones’ Eagles’ first appearance on Sunday. The future Hall of Famer is the NFL’s active leader in receptions and receiving yards but has yet to play in 2023.
Garner is a junior cornerback out of LSU who was forced to play safety last week. He should be a reserve in this game behind Terrell Edmunds and Sidney Brown.
