G Cole Doesn't Practice, But Probable For Sunday

Starting right guard Nick Cole was held out of Friday's practice as the team moved the workout to their indoor facility. Cole has been battling a knee injury since training camp and the team didn't want him to go through the pounding on the harder surface.

However, Cole is still listed as probable for this Sunday's game against Jacksonville. Head coach Andy Reid insisted that Cole is still the starter at right guard.

In Cole's place at practice was Reggie Wells, who was acquired just prior to the start of the season from the Arizona Cardinals. Wells was active for last week's game against the Lions. And while he's still learning the Eagles' scheme, he is making sure that he is ready if needed.

"I'm just worried about me and getting myself prepared to play, prepared to play a full game if need be," Wells said. "I'm going to go out there and put in my all each and every day. When the time comes, I'll be ready to go."

Injuries aren't a factor for the Eagles this week. No players are even listed as questionable for Sunday's game and that includes linebacker Stewart Bradley who missed the Lions game due to a concussion.

The same can't be said for the Jaguars, who will not have starting linebacker Justin Durant in the lineup due to an ankle injury. He will be replaced by Russell Allen. Reserve defensive tackle Landon Cohen is also out.

The Jaguars did receive some good news as Pro Bowl running back Maurice Jones-Drew is probable despite an ankle injury. Starting guard Uche Nwaneri (foot) and starting linebacker Daryl Smith (thigh) are also probable.
