The Philadelphia Eagles seemed to be getting healthy recently after suffering many injuries throughout the early part of the season. Now it seems like the injury bug has returned as the Eagles will be without two of their safeties for Sunday's game against the Chicago Bears.

Earlier this week, the Eagles signed safety Keelan Johnson off of the practice squad to the 53-man roster due to injuries to two of their safeties. It was officially announced that Colt Anderson and Kurt Coleman will not be suiting up for the game on Sunday. Anderson suffered a knee injury last week and Coleman suffered a hamstring injury. Both players missed practice this week. The Eagles will have Johnson and Patrick Chung as the backup safeties against the Bears with the starters being Nate Allen and Earl Wolff. Wolff is making his first return to action after sitting out since the Green Bay Packers game with a knee injury.

Cornerback Brandon Boykin's status is still up in the air even though he has been medically cleared for action. Boykin suffered a concussion during the Minnesota Vikings game on Sunday and was finally cleared on Thursday. All signs point to him playing, but concussions are something that are not to be messed with. As of right now, he is listed as "probable."

Other injuries:

  • LB Najee Good (hamstring) — PROBABLE
  • LB Mychal Kendricks (knee) — PROBABLE
  • WR BRAD SMITH (hamstring) — PROBABLE
