The Philadelphia Eagles look to build upon its 2-0 start with the Washington Commanders coming to town for a Week 3 matchup.

Through the first two weeks of the season, the Eagles have looked unstoppable on the offensive side of the ball. In fact, Philadelphia ranks second in the NFL in big plays.

It should come as no surprise to see the Birds with the second-most rushes of 10+ yards. It’s a rushing attack that is capable of gashing even the best defenses the league has to offer.

The Eagles’ rush offense ranks second in the NFL, averaging 189.5 yards per game on the ground.

Stopping the Eagles’ ground game is difficult enough with a healthy defense, but according to Thursday’s injury report, the Commanders’ defensive line could be shorthanded come Sunday.

DE Casey Toohill (concussion) and DT Daniel Wise (ankle) were both held out of Thursday’s practice entirely. Missing Thursday’s session does not bode well for either player’s availability on Sunday.

Joining them on Washington’s injury report is DE James Smith-Williams (abdominal), who practiced in a limited fashion.

The Commanders are already without the No. 2 overall pick in the 2020 draft in Chase Young.

With three more defensive lineman at risk to miss this NFC East showdown, Washington’s 28th-ranked rush defense could be forced to elevate practice squad players to rotate in.

On the other hand, Philly provided a relatively clean injury report after Thursday’s session.

With most key players held out due to rest, the Birds look to be heading into the weekend with a fresh squad. That, on top of their own injury issues, spells trouble for the visiting Commanders.
