Philadelphia Eagles Player News: Last 24 hours, All Positions

News: Burton (back) wasn't spotted at Friday's practice and is expected to be a game-time decision Sunday against the Bears, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.
Impact: Burton was a limited practice participant Wednesday, but he's trending in the wrong direction after finishing the week with back-to-back absences. Eagles coach Doug Pederson nonetheless views his No. 3 tight end as a game-time decision, and the team hasn't yet bothered to sign a replacement. Burton only played 11 snaps on offense in last week's blowout win of the Cowboys, falling behind both Zach Ertz (60) and Brent Celek (23). Burton's absence might actually be a bigger loss on special teams, where he's logged at least 16 snaps in every game this season.
News: Elliott was cleared from the concussion protocol Friday morning, Tim McManus of ESPN.com reports.
Impact: Elliott put in a full practice Thursday, so clearing the concussion protocol was the last hurdle he needed to cross before being given the green light to play in Week 12. He will have a favorable matchup this week, squaring off against a Bears team that allowed opposing kickers to total seven field goals -- three between 40-49 yards and two from 50 yards and beyond -- and seven extra points over its last three games.
