Eagles RB Wendell Smallwood (knee) put in a limited practice on Thursday -- his 1st since going down back in Week 4. Dave Spadaro of the team's official website believes Smallwood is still a "question mark" for Monday night's game against the Redskins. We'll continue to monitor his progress, but he shouldn't be in Week 7 fantasy lineups right now.

Eagles DT Fletcher Cox (calf) is active for tonight's game against the Panthers. He's a risky IDP option after a slow start and missing the past 2 weeks, though.

Eagles RB Wendell Smallwood (knee) is inactive for tonight’s game at Carolina. It’s the 2nd straight absence for Smallwood. Philly’s backfield is down to LeGarrette Blount, Corey Clement and Kenjon Barner.

Eagles DT Fletcher Cox is questionable for tonight's game against the Panthers after returning to practice this week from 2 games down with a calf injury. He's certainly good enough when healthy to deliver in just about any matchup. But the calf situation paired with Cox's quiet statistical start to this year makes him not worth waiting on unless you're filling a DT-specific slot.

Eagles RB Wendell Smallwood (knee) is listed as questionable for Thursday night's game against the Panthers. He didn't practice all week but will be a game-time decision, according to Dave Spadaro of the team's official website. We'll find out Smallwood's status by 7 pm ET tomorrow, but he won't be a recommended fantasy play if active.

Eagles DT Fletcher Cox practiced Tuesday, according to Philly Voice's Jimmy Kempski. Cox missed the past 2 games with a calf injury and will make for a risky IDP option on the short week if he is active for Thursday night's game at Carolina.

Eagles RB Wendell Smallwood (knee) is inactive for today’s game against the Chargers. That leaves LeGarrette Blount as Philly’s likely lead back. RB Corey Clement could also see an uptick in work. RB Kenjon Barner is active and could play in some passing situations.

The Eagles list RB Wendell Smallwood (knee) as questionable for Sunday's game against the Cardinals. He didn't practice all week, though, making him unlikely to play. That leaves LeGarrette Blount as Philly's clear lead back -- and a low-end fantasy starter. Corey Clement will serve as the #2 RB, while RB Kenjon Barner could pick up some passing-down snaps.

Eagles RB Wendell Smallwood (knee) missed his 2nd straight practice on Thursday. It looks like he's in legitimate danger of missing this weekend's game against the Cardinals. His absence would leave Philly's backfield to LeGarrette Blount and Corey Clement.

Eagles MLB Jordan Hicks (ankle) and S Rodney McLeod (hamstring) are active for today's game against the Chargers. Hicks looks like the better bet for IDP lineups after full practices all week

The Eagles have ruled DT Fletcher Cox (calf) out for Sunday's game against the Chargers. MLB Jordan Hicks (ankle) and S Rodney McLeod (hamstring) are both questionable but put in full practices all week. Both seem on track to play in an upside scoring matchup for IDP owners.

Eagles MLB Jordan Hicks participated in practice Wednesday despite leaving Sunday's win over the Giants early with an ankle injury. That points to him likely being ready for a Week 4 visit to the Chargers. DT Fletcher Cox did not practice after suffering a calf injury against the Giants, but HC Doug Pederson told Philly.com that both players are "doing exceedingly above expectation." We'll see when Cox is ready for action, but it seems the team doesn't expect to miss him for the Chargers game either. Having both players would give the team D upside against a Chargers offense that issued 3 turnovers and scored just 10 points in Week 3.

Eagles OC Frank Reich confirmed on Tuesday that Wendell Smallwood will take over as the 3rd-down RB with Darren Sproles (arm, knee) done for the year. Smallwood has just 9 catches through his first 16 NFL games, but he did tally 57 grabs over his final 2 college seasons. We'll have to see about his rushing volume after he tied for the team lead with 12 carries in Week 3. But Smallwood certainly has a shot to lead all Eagles RBs in fantasy points the rest of the way. He should be owned in most leagues.

Eagles RB Darren Sproles will have surgery Monday to repair a right wrist fracture he suffered in Sunday's win over the Giants, Philly.com's Les Bowen reports. Sproles also suffered ligament damage in the wrist. After that, he'll also reportedly need a knee MRI. ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Sproles suffered an ACL tear in the game. Fantasy owners should just assume today that the veteran back is done for the season. The situation makes touches available to LeGarrette Blount, Wendell Smallwood and Corey Clement. Smallwood led the Eagles in rushing Sunday while tying Blount for the carry lead. Blount and Clement each scored rushing TDs.

Update: NFL Network's Ian Rapoport confirms that Sproles tore his ACL. He's done for the season.

Eagles RB Darren Sproles is believed to have broken his arm in Sunday's game against the Giants, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. He's undergoing an MRI on Monday to learn more. Sproles is obviously looking at a lengthy absence and could certainly miss the rest of the season. It'd be a big loss for the Eagles offense. There's no one else on the roster that can replace Sproles' skill set in the passing game.

Eagles LB Jordan Hicks (ankle) and DT Fletcher Cox (calf) each left in the 2nd quarter of Sunday's win over the Giants and did not return. We'll keep an eye out for further word on their injuries.

Eagles RB Darren Sproles exited in the 1st quarter of Sunday's game against the Giants. It looked like a knee injury, but the team is calling it a wrist. He's officially questionable to return.

Update: Sproles has been ruled out for the day.

Eagles S Rodney McLeod (hamstring) is inactive for today's game against the Giants. That's not a big blow to IDP lineups or a Philly defense with a tremendous matchup against a struggling Eli Manning.

Eagles S Rodney McLeod is questionable for Sunday's game against the Giants with a hamstring injury. He put in a limited workout Friday after missing the week's 1st 2 practices. Even if McLeod is active for the game, the hamstring issue makes him risky for IDP lineups.

Eagles S Rodney McLeod suffered a hamstring in the 1st quarter of Sunday's game at Kansas City. He is questionable to return.
