The Philadelphia Eagles' offensive line will be at full strength for Thursday night's game against the New York Giants.

Starting right tackle Lane Johnson, who was added to the injury report with an ankle injury, is officially active, the Eagles announced. Johnson is dealing with a high-ankle sprain, per NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport.

Eagles cornerback Sidney Jones left during the first half of Thursday's game against the Giants after suffering a hamstring injury. Tackle Jason Peters suffered a bicep injury during the third quarter and did not return.

Other injuries we're tracking around the league on this Week 6 Thursday:

1. Giants linebacker Ray-Ray Armstrong suffered a concussion during the third quarter vs. Eagles and did not return. Wideout Cody Latimer is out with a hamstring injury.

2. Los Angeles Rams receivers Brandin Cooks (concussion) and Cooper Kupp (concussion) were set to practice in individual drills on Thursday, coach Sean McVay told reporters. Should all go well, they would practice in full on Friday and if they got through that practice would be fine to play on Sunday.

3. Green Bay Packers wide receiver Geronimo Allison is out of concussion protocol. Allison worked with the rehab group in practice as he is also dealing with a hamstring injury. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers (knee) and receiver Randall Cobb (hamstring) also worked with the rehab group. Rodgers told reporters he suffered a "setback" in his knee rehab, it's not expected to affect his status for Monday's game against the San Francisco 49ers. Tight end Jimmy Graham also missed practice because of a knee injury.

4. Atlanta Falcons coach Dan Quinn said running back Devonta Freeman will do a walkthrough today as his foot is still sore. Rapoprt reported Wednesday Freeman, who missed three games earlier this season with a knee injury, is dealing with a bone contusion.

Quinn doesn't believe the injury is long term though. Defensive tackle Grady Jarrett (ankle) is improving but his status is unknown until Friday, Quinn said.

5. Greg Olsen (foot) was limited at practice again, but all signs continue to point toward a possible Sunday return for the Panthers' veteran tight end, who has not played since the season opener.

6. The Chargers added insurance at the kicker spot with Caleb Sturgis battling a groin injury. Los Angeles signed Michael Badgley on Thursday, one day after Sturgis was limited at practice.
