Eagles Fully Healthy Following Bye Week

While the Eagles and Falcons are both coming off bye weeks, the Eagles will likely go into Sunday's matchup as the healthier team. Falcons slot receiver Harry Douglas (knee/ankle) and reserve running back Antone Smith (hamstring) did not practice Wednesday, while defensive tackle Jonathan Babineaux (groin), tight end Michael Palmer (shoulder) and right guard Garrett Reynolds (back) were limited.

Both the Eagles and Falcons welcomed big men back to practice this week. Defensive tackle Mike Patterson hit the practice field for the first time this season, while defensive tackle Corey Peters returned for the Falcons. A starter for the past two years in Atlanta, Peters is on the team's Reserve/Non-Football Injury list after injuring his left foot in the offseason. While there remains a slight chance Peters could play Sunday, Falcons head coach Mike Smith said it remains to be seen.

"He's progressed," Smith said after practice Wednesday. "Again, he's not in football shape. That's going to be a big concern. We want to weigh that in, in terms of our decision, as we go through is it this week or is it next week? We've got 21 days to do it."

Meanwhile, all members of the Eagles roster practiced fully on Wednesday. Safety Nate Allen suffered a hamstring injury against the Lions and did not participate in Monday's 10-10-10 practice. Allen said earlier in the week that the injury will not keep him out of Sunday's game.
