Barwin missed practice both Wednesday and Thursday, so his status for Monday night's game against the Packers appears to be trending in the right direction.
Barwin (knee) did not practice Thursday.
Barwin is tending to a bruised bone in his knee and has now missed the first two practices of the week. His status for Monday night appears to be in question.
Barwin isn't a likely candidate to miss Monday's contest against the Packers, but he figures to miss some practice time in order to heal from the bothersome bone bruise. Marcus Smith and Vinny Curry figure to see additional reps with Barwin sidelined for the time being.
Barwin is dealing with a bruised bone, Philly.com reports.
The Eagles were ravaged by injury Sunday against the Seahawks, but Barwin is likely one of the most fortunate players to have gone down as his bone bruise isn't expected to prevent him from playing in this weekend's game against the Packers.
Connor Barwin recorded a sack, his seventh of the year, in Sunday's 35-30 win over the Giants.
Barwin's sack production was halved from last season to this year, as the Philadelphia Eagles ' defense on the whole was less effective in pressuring opposing quarterbacks. He still piled up 45 tackles and seven passes defensed, but he only forced one fumble and didn't come up with an interception. Ultimately, the stud linebacker didn't live up to his preseason expectations.
