Jackson Practices, But "A Bit Limited"

The Eagles wrapped up practice at the NovaCare Complex this afternoon, and one of the players on the field was receiver DeSean Jackson. This was the first day that Jackson practiced since suffering a concussion on a violent hit by Falcons cornerback Dunta Robinson. Of course, Robinson was fined $50,000 by the league for his hit on Jackson.

Jackson told reporters Monday that he was "a little bit limited" in practice, and would be a "game-time decision" on Sunday against Indianapolis. But just having the electric receiver back on the practice field was a giant step in the right direction for the league's sixth-ranked offense that is looking to continue the success they had before the bye week.

If Jackson is able to play, it will be the first time both he and Vick played since the Week 4 game against the Redskins. The previous week in Jacksonville, Jackson had five catches for 153 yards and a 61-yard touchdown with Vick at quarterback. Jackson had scored two touchdowns in the first quarter - one as a receiver, and another as a rusher - of the Falcons game before the injury. Jason Avant started in his place the following week against the Titans.
