DeSean Jackson expected to participate in practice on Wednesday 

After a dominant victory on Sunday afternoon, head coach Doug Pederson met with the media Monday to provide an injury update. Running back Miles Sanders left the Bills game with a shoulder injury after racking up 74 yards and his first rushing touchdown.

"Miles is going to be OK," Pederson said. "We had further testing done today, everything came back positive. We're going to take him day by day this week and see where he's at the end of the week."

As for players who sustained injuries in previous games, Pederson offered some promising news for their activity this week. The most notable is wide receiver DeSean Jackson, who has been sidelined since the Falcons game on September 15 with an abdominal injury. Jackson saw 11 snaps in the Week 2 matchup before having to leave the game.

"We can incorporate him back into practice a little bit on Wednesday," Pederson said. "See where he's at as the week progresses."

Another long-term injured player who will see more reps this week is cornerback Avonte Maddox. He was a limited participant in practice on Friday for the first time since suffering a concussion and a neck injury in the Week 4 win in Green Bay.

"Avonte practiced on Friday, so he'll be back in the mix in practice this week," Pederson said. "We're excited about that."

Cornerback Cre'Von LeBlanc is eligible to come off Injured Reserve this week. He suffered a foot injury in Training Camp. However, Pederson said that LeBlanc is not ready just yet.
