The Philadelphia Eagles overcame a 14-point deficit to take down the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 4 and remain the only unbeaten team in the NFL.

It was far from an uneventful win, though. Several key players went down with injuries, leading head coach Nick Sirianni to provide status updates on Monday.

Sirianni opted not to discuss any specific details on injured players, but did say that "everyone has a chance to play this weekend." That is a step in the right direction with a road matchup against the Arizona Cardinals set for Sunday. Concrete updates should be provided later this week when practice resumes.

The name to keep an eye on here is offensive lineman Jordan Mailata. Mailata hurt his shoulder in a tackle attempt during an interception return and is set to undergo a MRI. Philly signed guard Tyrese Robinson to the practice squad, which suggests it could be preparing for an absence from Mailata.

Cornerback Avonte Maddox is making progress on a high-ankle sprain that kept him off the field in Week 4 and cornerback Darius Slay reportedly avoided a serious injury to his forearm. Kicker Jake Elliott is in the same boat after his plant leg was wiped out by a Jaguars player during a field goal attempt.

Isaac Seumalo is the final name worth mentioning here. While he exited late in the game with an ankle issue, there seems to be nothing to worry about from a long-term perspective.

Even with the status of multiple key players up in the air, Philadelphia is still favored by 5.5 points against Arizona on FanDuel Sportsbook's NFL odds.
