With Thursday’s game between the Eagles and Buccaneers coming soon, Philadelphia had a couple of upgrades for its second injury report of the week.

Defensive end Derek Barnett (ankle) and center Jason Kelce (foot/rest) both would have returned to the practice field as limited participants. The Eagles’ Tuesday injury report is an estimate as the club only held a walk-through given the short week.

Barnett played 70 percent of the Eagles’ snaps in the team’s victory over Carolina on Sunday, recording three total tackles and a pair of QB hits.

Kelce has played all of Philadelphia’s offensive snaps this year.

Offensive tackle Jordan Mailata (knee) also went from limited to full participation on Tuesday. And offensive lineman Landon Dickerson (ankle) remained a full participant.

Offensive tackle Lane Johnson remains away from the club due to a personal matter. And tight end Dallas Goedert was removed from the injury report as he was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list earlier on Tuesday.
