Kincade & Salciunas: Weekdays 6am – 10am

The Philadelphia Eagles lost their undefeated record in Week 6 of 2023 NFL season against the New York Jets at MetLife Stadium. Their first loss of the season won’t ruin their playoff chances, but their Week 7 starters will look a little different due to injuries to key players.

The defending NFC champs will face the Miami Dolphins on Sunday Night Football in Week 7.

Philadelphia Eagles Fall to New York Jets

The Eagles didn’t put together flawless performances in the early weeks of the season. However, they entered the matchup against the Jets at 5-0.

Jalen Hurts threw three interceptions, including a costly pic to Tony Adams that set up the game-winning touchdown. Dallas Goedert and D’Andre Swift also made costly mistakes that contributed to the turnover plague.

The Philadelphia defense kept the New York offense in check, especially without key contributors like Darius Slay and Jalen Carter.

The loss of Lane Johnson early in the game stunted the offensive momentum. Jack Driscoll replaced Johnson, who will get news about a potential high ankle sprain this week.

Projected Philadelphia Eagles Week 7 Starters

The Eagles face serious injury concerns. Avonte Maddox is already out for the season, and the revolving door of reserve defensive backs has its fair share of injuries. Slay could return against the Dolphins, but the status of Reed Blankenship is now in question. 

Fletcher Cox returned against the Jets after missing the Week 6 matchup against the Los Angeles Rams.

Nakobe Dean returned to the field Sunday for the first time since suffering an injury in Week 1. Nicholas Morrow still played 55% of the defensive snaps while Dean saw 49%. Zach Cunningham played 75%, and Sean Desai will have to manage the rotation moving forward.

Injury news will also affect the Eagles Week 7 starters, as news about Johnson, Blankenship, Slay, and others will drop throughout the week.
