The Eagles and Washington are finally ready for their matchup in week 15, and both 53-man roster will look slightly different after an outbreak of COVID-19 hits both teams.

Jalen Hurts is back on the line-up for Philadelphia with Miles Sanders, Jordan Howard and a motivated wide receiver group.

Here is the 53-man roster for Tuesday’s huge matchup with news and notes.

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Jalen injured (1) in the first half. The Giants beat the Eagles 13-7 at MetLife Stadium on Sunday November 28, 2021 in East Rutherford.

Hurts will see its first game action in almost a month and it will be a huge duel on Tuesday night against a hotly contested Washington defense. Hurts will seek to re-establish its presence as the leader of Philadelphia’s offensive.

New York Jets wide receiver Elijah Moore (8) fails to complete a pass under pressure from Philadelphia Eagles cornerback Darius Slay (2) in the second half. The Eagles defeat the Jets, 33-18, at MetLife Stadium on Sunday, December 5, 2021, in East Rutherford.

Slay has had one of the most consistent seasons of his career, and he’s headed for a Pro Bowl appearance this season. He can cement this season by banning Terry McLaurin.
