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 DE Michael Bennett (foot) is active for today's game against the Saints. He has been playing through "questionable" tags for weeks and is fine for IDP usage. CB Sidney Jones (hamstring) is inactive after entering the day questionable. He wouldn't have been an IDP option anyway. His absence keeps the Philly secondary weakened.

Eagles DE Michael Bennett (foot) and MLB Jordan Hicks (calf) are active for today's game against Washington. Both entered the day questionable. Bennett has played through "questionable" tags for weeks and should be fine for normal IDP usage. Hicks played just two-thirds of the snaps in last week's return from the multi-week calf injury and looks risky.

Eagles DE Michael Bennett (foot) and MLB Jordan Hicks (calf) are questionable for Sunday's game against Washington. Bennett has been playing through "questionable" tags for weeks and should be in for the finale as well. We'll certainly confirm his status Sunday. Hicks returned last week from 4 games down with the calf injury. He played just 66% of the snaps in that game. Then he missed Thursday's practice and spent Friday limited before the "questionable" designation. Hicks presents a lot of risk for IDP owners this week. But we'll update his status as well in case you're looking to take the plunge. We did move him down the Week 17 IDP rankings.

Eagles LT Jason Peters suffered a torn biceps in Thursday night's win over the Giants. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Peters is expected to return this season but that he might miss a week or 2. Any missed time for Peters presents a potential challenge for Philly's pass protection and run game. Week 7 brings the Panthers to town, followed by a Week 8 clash with the Jaguars in London.

For today's game against the Cowboys, Eagles DE Brandon Graham, DE Derek Barnett, CB Jalen Mills, LB Nigel Bradham, S Rodney McLeod and DT Timmy Jernigan are all inactive. Graham was ruled out early with an ankle sprain he suffered last week. Mills was questionable. But this list clearly points to Philly's plan to rest key players and anyone dealing with any physical malady for their meaningless finale.
