  • senior NFL insider Adam Schefter joins us with more on who is available in all these critical matchups today.

  • And let's start with Washington's.

  • Alex Smith hasn't played in three weeks because of that calf injury.

  • So, Adam, what's the latest on his status for tonight's game against the Eagles?

  • Well, good morning, Hannah and Ron Rivera, the Washington football team coach, told Sal Paolantonio that Alex Smith has been cleared to start tonight's game for Washington.

  • And so, with the division on the line with everything at stake, Washington will turn to the man that it now trust most of the position.

  • Alex Smith, Who would have thought a man whose career could be over who's coming off to 17 surgeries will win the NFL comeback player of the year this year now will be entrusted with the fate of winning the NFC East title for the Washington football team.

  • That's but that's exactly what's gonna happen.

  • Alex Smith is expected to be behind center.

  • They will have Antonio Gibson in the backfield, and even Terry McLaurin, who's been battling a high ankle sprain, is expected to get some playing time at wide receiver.

  • I mean, it's a really great story regardless.

  • But if Alex Smith leads them back to the playoffs for the first time since 2015, and after everything Ron Rivera went through, Wow, what an ending, that would be alright elsewhere.

  • Let's talk about the Cardinals because they really did not look good.

  • They were had an upset loss to the Niners the day after Christmas, and now this.

  • They did this to themselves.

  • They're in a must win to make the playoffs.

  • Kyler Murray.

  • Good to go.

  • He was injured at the end of that game on the 26 but what do we know about Larry Fitzgerald and others playing in that game today?

  • What a.

  • Both teams battling health and covert issues and Larry Fitzgerald has been having a groin injury, and the issue is they did not feel optimistic that he would be able to play today, But that was before Christian Kirk, there other wide receiver, was placed on the reserve covert 19 list yesterday.

  • You wonder if Fitzgerald somehow is gonna find a way within him deep within him to make it onto the field when they were not expecting that all along and what could be his last regular season game.

  • We'll see what Larry Pits does, And the Los Angeles Rams were hopeful to have Cam acres back from his high ankle scream.

  • It's only one week did take part in practice in a limited fashion this week.

  • And keep in mind they don't have Darryl Henderson.

  • They don't have Jared Goff.

  • They don't have to pick up.

  • They could really use their rookie running back.

  • Looks like he's gonna try to play.

  • I don't think he's gonna be out there a lot.

  • We'll see how effective he is.

  • But they're hoping to get something today out of Cam makers.

  • Yeah, meanwhile, you've got John Woolford making his first ever NFL start, undrafted out awake in 2018, the former financial analysts.

  • So it'll be a fascinating matchup.

  • Thanks, Adam.

  • Thanks for watching ESPN on YouTube for live streaming sports and premium content.
