Eagles rule out Carson Wentz, Alshon Jeffery, Mack Hollins for season opener


The Eagles on Wednesday officially ruled out Carson Wentz (knee), Alshon Jeffery (shoulder) and Mack Hollins (groin) for Thursday night’s season opener against the Falcons.

No surprises there. 

While all of that was expected, the good news is that no other player is listed on the injury report as questionable. Every other player is expected to play, including Jay Ajayi and Michael Bennett. 

Ajayi (foot) missed practice on Sunday but returned in a limited fashion on Monday. He was a full participant on Tuesday and was listed as a full participant on Wednesday’s estimated practice report (the Eagles actually didn’t practice today). 

Bennett (knee) had what appeared to be more of a maintenance day on Tuesday. He was also listed as a full participant on Wednesday after not practicing on Tuesday. 

Going into Thursday’s game, we already know three of their seven inactive players.
