Running back Mark Ingram II was also ruled out after injuring his left ankle in the first quarter. He was seen getting his ankle taped and returned in the second quarter to carry the ball for a 5-yard gain before exiting again. Fellow backs Gus Edwards (14 carries for 26 yards) and J.K. Dobbins (nine carries for 28 yards) shouldered the workload in the backfield while Ingram (five carries for 20 yards) remained on the sideline.

Rookie right guard Tyre Phillips left the game in the fourth quarter with a hand injury. It was the second injury Phillips has suffered this season after he missed Week 5 with a shoulder injury. Patrick Mekari entered the game for Phillips.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh didn’t have an update on the severity of the players' injuries after the game but said that they didn’t look to be serious.

“I have not talked to the trainer about those guys since during the game,” Harbaugh said, “so I don’t think those are any long-term injuries but we’ll find out after.”

The Ravens will enter their bye week and then host a Week 8 matchup with the AFC-North leading Pittsburgh Steelers (5-0).

Eagles rookie safety K’Von Wallace was ruled out after suffering a shoulder injury making a tackle on a punt return in the first quarter. Cornerback Jalen Mills also headed to the team’s locker room in the third quarter but returned, while running back Miles Sanders left with a knee injury. Tight end Zach Ertz exited in the fourth quarter with a left ankle injury.
