Nerdy Football Analysis: Carson missed Week 5 with a neck injury and will sit again this week. That means more Alex Collins as the lead back. he handled 17 touches last week against the Rams. DeeJay Dallas should fill in as a change of pace back.

Injury Listed as Questionable

Rivera said with Terry McLaurin operating more under “an abundance of caution.” Similar to how they were with RB Antonio Gibson. Rivera also said Gibson did more this week… (John Keim on Twitter)

Nerdy Football Analysis: It seems like McLaurin should be fine for Sunday against the Chiefs but make sure you check back Sunday morning to be sure. He’s in a great spot against a Kansas City defense that’s given up three 100-yard games to Marquise Brown, Mike Williams and DeVonta Smith.

Nerdy Football Analysis: Chubb missed practice all week with a calf injury before being ruled out Friday. Kareem Hunt (wrist, knee) missed practice Wednesday and Thursday before getting in limited work on Friday. He’s expected to play and should get the bulk of the running back work. D’Ernest Johnson and Demetric Felton have seen very limited work through five games.

Injury For CB Tay Gowan and a 2022 5th-round pick

Trade: Eagles are sending three-time Pro Bowl TE Zach Ertz to the Arizona Cardinals in exchange for CB Tay Gowan and a 2022 5th-round pick, sources tell ESPN. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Nerdy Football Analysis: The Cardinals were in the market for a tight end after losing Maxx Williams to a knee injury in Week 5. Ertz will not be eligible to play in Week 6 for Arizona after playing last night for the Eagles. Dallas Goedert (Covid-19 list) should see a boost in targets and Ertz is now viable as a weekly play at a position struggling for depth.

Nerdy Football Analysis: Jackson was listed with an illness on Thursday’s practice report, marking the second time in about a month he has been ill. It is worth noting that Jackson has tested positive for coronavirus twice in the last year, although there has been no indication that is what he is dealing with now. Tyler Huntley would get the nod in Week 6 if Jackson can’t go, but Jackson’s illness will have to keep him out of Friday’s practice before fantasy managers need to consider going down that road.
