As the Eagles prep to take on the Minnesota Vikings at U.S. Bank Stadium on Sunday, head coach Doug Pederson met with the media Wednesday morning to discuss injury updates. With few day-to-day injuries, Pederson states there is no major news regarding players with more time-consuming injuries.
“As far as the injury report goes on the guys that are a little more, long term, there’s really no update on those guys, like (Ronald) Darby (hamstring) and guys like that, (Avonte) Maddox (concussion, neck), Timmy (Jernigan, foot).”
DeSean Jackson (abdomen) is progressing this week and will join the team outside on the field next to practice to continue his rehab. Jackson 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, we are going to try to progress him this week. Try to get him on the field and see what he can do, from a rehab standpoint," Pederson said. "See where he’s at. He’ll rehab, aside from us.”
After practice in the indoor practice facility at the NovaCare Complex on Wednesday afternoon, the official injury report was released. Cornerback Sidney Jones (hamstring) was a full participant.
Safety Rodney McLeod (knee) and tackle Jason Peters (knee) were both limited participation in practice. Running back Corey Clement (shoulder), cornerback Ronald Darby (hamstring), wide receiver DeSean Jackson (abdomen), defensive tackle Tim Jernigan (foot), cornerback Avonte Maddox (concussion, neck), cornerback Orlando Scandrick (illness), and running back Darren Sproles (quadricep) did not participate in practice.
