Eagles injury update: Jay Ajayi returns; Mack Hollins misses practice


As he said he would, Jay Ajayi (foot) returned to the practice field on Monday morning, but was a limited participant. 

He said he’s going to play on Thursday. 

Here’s the full injury report from Monday's practice: 

Did not practice: Mack Hollins (groin), Alshon Jeffery (shoulder), Richard Rodgers (knee)

Limited: Ajayi (foot), Carson Wentz (knee)

Alshon Jeffery isn’t expected to play, so his not practicing isn’t a surprise. But Hollins on Monday, just before the injury report was released, said he expects to play against the Falcons. Hollins reportedly had offseason sports hernia surgery, had a bad training camp and hasn’t been practicing recently. That’s something to watch. 

Wentz was listed as limited as Nick Foles gets all the first-team reps. Foles will start on Thursday. But Wentz, according to offensive coordinator Mike Groh, will continue to get some reps in practice to get him ready for when he does take over (see story)

A notable omission from the practice report is Brandon Graham, who had ankle surgery and missed training camp. Graham has been back at practice for awhile now and is ready to go.
