Eagles Missing Key Players
Goedert left Philadelphia’s last game, a 28-23 win over the Dallas Cowboys, due to a fractured right forearm. Even with the benefit of a bye week last week, there was still no chance that he’d be healed enough to play in this game.

Barnett was a healthy scratch for the Week 9 win over Dallas and will again be out due to personal reasons. He’s being forced into a lesser role in part to make room for 2023 first-round pick Nolan Smith.
This week, LB Nakobe Dean (foot) was placed on IR by the Eagles. Philadelphia was hoping to activate safety Justin Evans (knee) from IR in time for this game, but that option has been ruled out.

Chiefs Relatively Healthy For This Late In Season
Going into this matchup between the teams with the top records in the NFL (Philadelphia) and AFC (Kansas City), the Chiefs aren’t showing a single injury designation among their starters.
With Richie James back in the fold, shifty route runner who is good with the ball in his hands from the slot who might be able to rotate as an X, he gives it his all as a blocker, and he is always on the same page with the QB. @ChiefsFocus #PHIvsKC pic.twitter.com/klqn4EOYnt https://t.co/oY4y1JyaeN

Looking at the Eagles vs Chiefs prediction, there are some depth injuries at wide receiver, where Justyn Ross is on the commissioner’s exempt list and Richie James (knee) is listed as questionable. James was just activated from IR this week.
RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire (illness) and Jerick McKinnon (groin) and WR Kadarius Toney (ankle) and Justin Watson (knee) were all full participants in practice this week and cleared of any injury designation.
How Could Injuries Affect Eagles vs Chiefs Betting Lines?
The Eagles aren’t placing Goedert on IR. Head coach Nick Sirianni is hopeful that Goedert won’t be out for four full games, the minimum time that must be spent on IR.
In the meantime, the Eagles will deploy a TE by committee game plan, dividing time among Jack Stoll, Grant Calcaterra and Albert Okwuegbunam. You probably don’t want to play an over on any Philly TE in the Eagles vs Chiefs player props. Goedert has seen 52 targets and made 38 receptions this season. Both numbers are third on the team. Stoll (two receptions on three targets) is the only other Eagles TE to catch a pass this season.
With his playing time reduced, Barnett has been looking for a way out of Philadelphia. He was given permission to seek a trade, but nothing materialized prior to the October 31 NFL trade deadline. Maybe he ought to be spending his time seeking out a better route to the quarterback, According to Pro Football Focus, on 55 pass-rush snaps this season, Barnett has zero QB pressures.
