During a Wednesday morning press conference, the Eagles have only confirmed he would not practice today due to back soreness.
"Carson has a little bit of back soreness, a little tightness, so we're going to rest him today. Continue to evaluate him and make sure he's good. But we'll have more information on all these guys later in the week," head coach Doug Pederson said.
But NFL Network is saying he could be out for the rest of the season.
