Eagles unofficial depth chart ahead of Week 18 matchup vs. Giants

The Philadelphia Eagles are less than eight hours away from returning to the field for a late Sunday afternoon matchup against the Giants.

The Birds are the favorite and will look to move to 14-3 on the season while maintaining their lead in the NFC.

Jalen Hurts is back after missing two games with a shoulder injury, while Jonathan Gannon’s retooled defense will look to regain its swagger with the return of C.J. Gardner-Johnson and Robert Quinn.

Here’s your updated depth chart for Week 18 with Philadelphia choosing to rule right tackle Lane Johnson out until the playoffs.
