Eagles WR Nelson Agholor has significant swelling in his knee
There is significant swelling in Nelson Agholor's knee and it may be time to shut him down. #Eagles have three WR options on PS — Marcus Green, Marken Michel and Deontay Burnett

Philadelphia is scorned with injuries this season. Along with Agholor, wide receiver J.J. Arcega-Whiteside, guard Brandon Brooks, defensive tackle Fletcher Cox, cornerback Ronald Darby, running back Jordan Howard, defensive end Derrick Barnett, and tackle Lane Johnson all appeared on the injury report.
With Agholor and Arcega-Whiteside on the injury report, Greg Ward and Robert Davis are the only healthy wide receivers on the depth chart. It is more than likely that the Eagles will look to the practice squad for help on the outside.
Philadelphia is already without DeSean Jackson and Alshon Jeffrey, who were put on injured reserve. Tight ends Zach Ertz and Dallas Goedert will be top targets for quarterback Carson Wentz.
Despite the litany of injuries, the Eagles must go on and face the Dallas Cowboys for sole possession of the NFC East. Dallas is not without injuries, who will be without linebacker Leighton Vander-Esch, along with quarterback Dak Prescott, linebacker Sean Lee, and offensive tackle Tyron Smith all questionable for Sunday.
Philadelphia and Dallas both stand at 7-7, vying for a playoff spot in a crowded NFC. The Eagles have been playing from behind for a playoff spot since losing to the Cowboys in Week 7 on the road.
In the biggest game of the season, the Eagles will take the field with not much talent at the receiver position.
