As the Eagles stepped onto the practice field for the first time this week, they were without four major contributors along the defensive and offensive lines. Defensive ends Trent Cole (calf) and Juqua Parker (ankle), defensive tackle Cullen Jenkins (tricep) and offensive tackle Jason Peters (hamstring) were all held out of practice Wednesday.
Luckily for the Eagles, Jenkins told reporters that he expects to again play through the injury he initially suffered three weeks ago against the Giants. Cole and Peters missed last Sunday's game against Buffalo and head coach Andy Reid said it would be "a stretch" for either to play against the Redskins. Juqua Parker battled through the high ankle sprain in Sunday's game in Buffalo.
Strong safety Jarrad Page suffered a stinger during Sunday's game, but was able to play through it for most of the second half. He was limited in practice Wednesday.
The following players participated fully for the Eagles: free safety Nate Allen (knee), wide receiver Jason Avant (hip), offensive tackle Winston Justice (knee), wide receiver Steve Smith (knee) and defensive end Darryl Tapp (pectoral).
REDSKINS REPORT: TE COOLEY LIMITED
For the Redskins, tight end Chris Cooley (knee), running back Tim Hightower (shoulder) and wide receiver Anthony Armstrong (hamstring) were each limited in practice. Hightower, if healthy, will backup Ryan Torain, who has battled back from a hand injury he suffered during training camp.
Reserve cornerback Phillip Buchanon (neck) was also limited, and running back Darrell Young (hamstring) participated fully.
