Herremans, Jackson Activated From PUP

The Eagles have activated offensive linemen Todd Herremans and Jamaal Jackson from the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list and released punter Ken Parrish.

Herremans is slated to start at left guard and has been out with a foot injury. Head coach Andy Reid has said all training camp that Herremans would be able to play in a game, but they were aiming to limit the pounding on his foot.

Meanwhile, Jackson suffered a torn ACL last December 26 against the Denver Broncos and has been rehabbing ever since. When healthy, he's the team's starting center. Nick Cole - who has missed practice recently with a sore knee - and Mike McGlynn have been working at center in Jackson's absence.

Cornerback Macho Harris, who missed time last week with a hamstring injury, has also returned to practice, as has defensive tackle Antonio Dixon (concussion) and wide receiver Hank Baskett (knee).

Parrish handled the punt and kickoff duties in Friday night's preseason game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
