Backup tight end Evan Moore is doubtful for the game with a back injury.  Moore has not practiced all week.  The Eagles will be limited at tight end as Clay Harbor is already on IR, leaving them with only Brent Celek.  Rookie running back Chris Polk is listed as questionable with a toe injury.  Polk has practiced this week and looks like he will play.  

On a positive note wide out Jeremy Maclin appears to be probable for the game.  He has been nursing a knee injury and missed half of the practices this week.  With DeSean Jackson already on IR from a rib injury, it will be up to Maclin to lead the receivers.

Kickoff tomorrow is at 1:00pm EST in East Rutherford, NJ.  Currently it is snowing in the northeast, but it should cease by game time tomorrow.
