No practice for DeSean Jackson on Wednesday 

Head coach Doug Pederson met with the media prior to practice on Wednesday morning, as the team preps for the matchup on Sunday against the New York Jets. He addressed the cornerback situation, specifically Sidney Jones who left Thursday night's game with a hamstring injury.

"Sidney is doing well," Pederson said. "He is going to go through walk-through this morning. Then we are going to progress him through the portions of practice, as we can. He is kind of day to day, but he is doing well."

Along with Jones, cornerback Avonte Maddox suffered an injury during the victory in Green Bay. His injury came with about a minute left in the game and he had to be removed from the field via stretcher. After traveling back with the team, he was evaluated at the hospital and diagnosed with a concussion and a neck injury.

"He is still in the protocol," Pederson said regarding Maddox's status.

Pederson also addressed DeSean Jackson's injury status (abdomen). He has been sidelined since the Falcons game on September 15. Jackson saw 11 snaps in the Week 2 matchup before having to leave the game.

"DeSean is still rehabbing," Pederson said. "He won't do anything today. He will just continue to rehab today, and we will progress from there."

After practice on Wednesday afternoon, the official injury report listed cornerback Ronald Darby (hamstring), tight end Alex Ellis (knee), Jackson (abdomen), defensive tackle Tim Jernigan (foot), center Jason Kelce (not injury related - personal), and Maddox (concussion, neck) as players who did not participate in practice. Defensive end Derek Barnett (groin) and Jones (hamstring) were limited in practice.
