Bucks missing pieces on defense against Eagles
Friday’s injury report showed Bucks rookies Kaliyah Kansi and Sarvosia Denis did not play, with each previously ruled out. The team has recently added several promotions to its active roster to accommodate each absence.
Defensive lineman Deadlin Senato was called up from the practice squad but will not play tonight. This is an encouraging sign that the team expects nose tackle Vita Vea to play a lot against the Eagles’ interior offensive line, which features center Jason Kelce.
Here’s a complete overview of the Bucks’ gameday inactive list.
The Eagles flew into town knowing they were missing a few offensive weapons in running back Boston Scott and wide receiver Quez Watkins.
Other notable players include rookie third-round pick offensive lineman Tyler Steen and tight end Albert Okwuegbunam, who the Eagles acquired from the Broncos in a trade in the offseason.
