NFL teams deal with injuries all season long, and by the time the playoffs start, injury reports have grown fairly lengthy. This year’s Wild Card round closes out on Sunday with a rather lengthy injury report for both the Philadelphia Eagles and the Seattle Seahawks.

The Eagles have been losing receivers left and right, and now they head into the Wild Card round with a few more significant injuries. Right guard Brandon Brooks is done for the playoffs, and now right tackle Lane Johnson is a big question mark after missing Friday practice. Zach Ertz has still not been cleared for contact, which is a big deal due to his lacerated kidney. The one plus is Miles Sanders has been cleared and is off the final injury report. One has to wonder though if he might be a decoy, or if he’s legitimately good to go on that ankle.

The Seahawks will be without tackle Duane Brown and it could be another couple weeks if they stay alive. However, they do get pass rusher Jadeveon Clowney and safety Quandre Diggs off the injury report, which is a big boost for their defense.

The Seahawks are a 1.5-point favorite against the Eagles, and the DraftKings Sportsbook betting split has been in favor of Seattle since this line opened. The point total currently sits at 45.
