With Thursday night’s game against the Eagles just a day away, both teams have released their final injury reports.

The Falcons have ruled out three players for Week 1:

  • G Ben Garland
  • CB Isaiah Oliver
  • CB Blidi Wreh-Wilson

The Eagles have also ruled out three players for Week 1:

  • WR Alshon Jeffery
  • QB Carson Wentz
  • WR Mack Hollins

Everyone else appears to be suiting up for Philadelphia on Thursday night. There was some confusion about a Michael Bennett injury, but he appears to have practiced in full today. Otherwise, this means the Falcons will officially be seeing Nick Foles at QB, and a receiving corps down 2 of their top 4 options.

The Falcons also announced that LS Josh Harris—who has been dealing with a hip injury—will be a game-time decision. However, the decision to promote CB Deante Burton from the practice squad instead of LS Jeff Overbaugh signals that the team is relatively confident in Harris’ ability to suit up. Atlanta is otherwise relatively healthy heading into Philly, with FS Ricardo Allen, LB Deion Jones, LB Foye Oluokun, and WR Marvin Hall all returning to a full practice load this week.

What are your thoughts on the injury report for Thursday’s game? Any surprises? What do you think the Eagles will do on offense to mitigate the loss of Jeffery and Hollins?
