Jalen Mills is questionable for the Eagles’ game against the Oakland Raiders on Monday night, but the Eagles cornerback was a full participant in practice Saturday and expects to play.
“I was moving around today,” Mills said. “Made plays on the ball. That’s the only things that matter.”
Coach Doug Pederson said the extra rest this week helped Mills. It also helped defensive end Derek Barnett, who will play even though he nursed a groin injury earlier in the week. He was not listed on the final injury report. The Eagles had an extra day of rest and one fewer practice session during the week.
Offensive lineman Stefen Wisniewski (ankle) and linebacker Mychal Kendricks (foot) were the only other players listed as questionable. Wisniewski was limited all week after missing last Sunday’s win over the New York Giants. Pederson might want to wait for Wisniewski to get fully healthy for the playoff run. Chance Warmack will start if Wisniewski doesn’t play.
Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz is expected to attend Monday’s game, but he will not be on the sidelines because he’s still using crutches. …Pederson is giving the players and coaches off from football obligations on Monday morning to spend Christmas with their families. The game-day schedule was pushed back, which Pederson was able to do because it’s a night game. … Former Eagles defensive end Trent Cole will officially retire with the team before Monday’s game. He will be recognized in front of the home crowd after the first quarter. Cole, a two-time Pro Bowler, is second in Eagles history with 85.5 sacks.
