Nick Foles, who had a groin issue was on the injury report last week, but he is back on track to make his first start of the season. Rookie Barkley is expected to back up Foles for the first time in five games.
There was talk of postponing the Buccaneers and the Eagles game for Sunday due to three players from Tampa Bay all diagnosed with MRSA, a highly contagious and serious infection.
The decision to have the two teams go on with the scheduled game was made after a containment report by a MRSA expert that the Buccaneers had hired. According to Fox News Sunday morning, because MRSA is spread by open wounds, the three players that are infected with MRSA are expected to be bandaged up under their uniforms.
The doctor's on Fox Sunday morning thought it was fine for the teams to play without worries of spreading the MRSA infection.
