With just one more practice remaining until Sunday's game against the Cardinals, here's an injury update.
Defensive tackle Tim Jernigan returned to the practice field Thursday afternoon after sitting out Wednesday's practice with a heel contusion. Defensive tackle Fletcher Cox (calf) and running back Wendell Smallwood (knee) did not practice Thursday and have yet to practice this week. Cox has missed time dating back to the Week 3 win over the Giants.
Cornerback Ronald Darby remains out for a few more weeks with an ankle injury. Fortunately, both cornerback Jaylen Watkins and safety Corey Graham returned to practice Wednesday.
"He's getting there. We'll continue with rehab this week, and get him moving a little bit more," Pederson said of Darby. "He's on schedule. But with the severity of the injury, as you saw in the Washington game, it's just going to take time."
