No Practice For Jackson; Samuel Limited

For the second straight day, wide receiver DeSean Jackson did not practice Thursday, though he told reporters earlier in the day that he would play this Sunday against the New York Giants. Jackson has a foot injury.

Meanwhile, cornerback Asante Samuel, the league leader with seven interceptions, was a limited participant Thursday, one day after being listed as a full participant. Samuel has missed three games with an MCL sprain.

Right tackle Winston Justice, who missed last Sunday's game with a hyperextended knee, was a limited participant for the second consecutive day.

Linebacker Keenan Clayton (hamstring) did not practice for the second straight day. Head coach Andy Reid said earlier in the week that Clayton would be a stretch to play this Sunday. Middle linebacker Stewart Bradley has already been declared out.

Three players were listed on Thursday's injury report a full participants: cornerback Jorrick Calvin (back), tight end Clay Harbor (abdomen) and guard Nick Cole (knee).
