Yesterday was a day of rest for the Eagles, who beat WFT on Tuesday night to stay very much in the Wild Card race.
There was no practice, but if there had been to prep for the Giants this Sunday, Miles Sanders (quad) and Jordan Mailata (ankle) would have missed it.
Sanders rushed for a career-high 131 yards on just 18 carries Tuesday but didn’t have a carry after the 11:31 mark of the third quarter, and Jordan Howard finished the game.
Mailata missed the Dallas and Kansas City games earlier this year with a knee injury but has started the last 10.
Head coach Nick Sirianni had the players come into the NovaCare Complex Wednesday for a lifting session, and the Eagles will hold a practice or walkthrough on today and a practice on Friday.
The Eagles listed Jalen Hurts (ankle) and Jordan Howard (knee) as limited, which means they would have participated in some but not all of practice if it were held. Both came into the game with those injuries. Tight end Jack Stoll would have been limited with a knee injury he suffered in the fourth quarter.
The Eagles also list Fletcher Cox and Jason Kelce as non-participants with their usual scheduled Wednesday rest days and Lane Johnson as a limited participant with a rest day.
