As the Eagles continue prepping for the Chicago Bears on Sunday at Lincoln Financial Field, a familiar face will be back at practice today for the first time since mid-September. Wide receiver DeSean Jackson will join the team on the field today as he continues to recover from his abdomen injury.
"DeSean has been looking really good," head coach Doug Pederson said. "He's been working hard through his rehab. I expect to get him into practice today and see where he's at physically."
In his only full game of the 2019 season against Washington, Jackson put up impressive numbers helping the Eagles capture a victory in their season opener. He recorded 154 yards and two 50-plus-yard touchdowns in his first game back in midnight green. While his status for the Bears game remains uncertain, it is no secret what kind of impact Jackson would have on Sunday.
"I'm optimistic and we'll take it day by day," Pederson said about Jackson's status for the Week 9 matchup.
Following practice the Eagles issued the following injury report:
Did Not Participate: LB Nigel Bradham (ankle), T Jason Peters (knee), and RB Miles Sanders (shoulder)
Limited: WR DeSean Jackson (abdomen), DT Tim Jernigan (foot), and RB Darren Sproles (quadricep)
Full: CB Avonte Maddox (concussion, neck) and DE Josh Sweat (ankle)
