Eagles Injury Update: Mychal Kendricks, Bradley Fletcher say they will return against Arizona
Checking up on the Eagles injuries before the bye week.
Recently the Eagles have faced a number of injury issues that have tested the team's depth. Against the Redskins, three starters were out on defense: linebacker Mychal Kendricks, safety Earl Wolff, and cornerback Bradley Fletcher. Having the bye week to rest is fortunate for their chances of returning. Jason Peters played against Washington but he's been playing through injuries (shoulder, broken finger, pectoral) all year. Michael Vick is still dealing with a hamstring injury. Jake Knott also has a hamstring injury. They could probably use some rest as well.

The Eagles are fortunate to have this week off to get healthy and prepare to make a playoff push here in the final stretch.
[UPDATE by Brandon Lee Gowton, 11/19/13 1:46 PM EST ] - Bradley Fletcher and Mychal Kendrick each said they'll be back against Arizona.
