Official Eagles/Vikings Injury Reports

Alrighty, folks, it's Friday, and you know what that means. . .it means that the last official injury reports have been released by both the Eagles and the Vikings for this Sunday's tilt at the Metrodome. As is the custom over here, we'll take a look at the Eagles' injury report first.

Philadelphia Eagles Injuries


Player Injury Type Injury Date
Todd Herremans shoulder/ankle 1.2.2009
Kevin Curtis calf 1.2.2009
Brian Dawkins back 1.2.2009
Hank Baskett knee 1.2.2009
Stewart Bradley rib/groin 1.2.2009


Player Injury Type Injury Date
Asante Samuel hip 1.2.2009
Jon Runyan knee 1.2.2009
Brian Westbrook knee/ankle 1.2.2009
L.J. Smith shoulder 1.2.2009

Out (IR / Out / Suspended / Physically unvailable)

Player Injury Type Injury Date
King Dunlap ankle 8.30.2008
Willie Reid leg 11.25.2008
Max Jean-Gilles ankle 12.3.2008
Mike Gibson shoulder 8.30.2008

Players that aren't shown on this injury report that are listed as out for Sunday are DE Victor Abiamiri (foot) and G Shawn Andrews (back).

Of the remaining players listed, Samuel and Runyan had no participation in practice today, but I don't think there's any doubt that they'll both be playing this Sunday. Samuel isn't going to be at 100%, however, and that could be something that plays to Minnesota's advantage.

Smith, Westbrook, and Bradley all had limited participation in Friday's practice, and the rest of the players listed on the injury report participated fully. It doesn't appear as though any major pieces for the Eagles are going to miss this weekend's game.

Moving on, here's the Minnesota injury report:

Minnesota Vikings Injuries


Player Injury Type Injury Date
Artis Hicks elbow 1.2.2009
Bernard Berrian ankle 1.2.2009


Player Injury Type Injury Date
Pat Williams shoulder 1.2.2009

Out (IR / Out / Suspended / Physically unvailable)

Player Injury Type Injury Date
E.J. Henderson foot/toes 10.6.2008
Heath Farwell knee 8.11.2008
Kenderick Allen wrist 8.19.2008
Drew Radovich shoulder 10.13.2008
Jayme Mitchell knee 8.11.2008
Michael Boulware wrist 8.30.2008
Charles Gordon ankle 11.13.2008

As discussed yesterday, DE Ray Edwards is also out for Minnesota, with Brian Robison starting in his place.

Nice to see Hicks back under the "Probable" section of the list. Hopefully this means that he'll be starting in place of Ryan Cook, particularly in light of all the blitzing that the Eagles are likely to do on Sunday. Bernard Berrian's ankle shouldn't be a problem, either, as it hasn't been the last couple of weeks.

As far as Pat Williams is concerned, the word is coming that he's a game-time decision. To be honest. . .and I don't mean this as a slight to the Eagles. . .if there's a game that we could "afford" to not have Pat Williams for, it's probably this one. The Eagles aren't exactly a "slam the ball up the middle" type of football team, and even though Phat Pat makes plays in the running game regardless of where the ball is going, his absence would probably be less felt in this game than if we were playing a team like Atlanta or Carolina or the Giants. I'll be happy to see him out there if he DOES suit up, but I won't be too surprised if the Vikings rest him and hope that there's a game against the Panthers next weekend that #94's services will be needed for.

That's all for tonight, folks. . .tomorrow's update will probably be a little later in the day, as I've got another funeral detail to go to again tomorrow that will take up a good portion of the day. If something happens that needs to be discussed, be sure to throw up a FanPost or a comment and discuss it right here!
