Reid: Barring Setback, Jackson Will Play

Andy Reid ruled out offensive lineman King Dunlap (knee) and cornerback Ellis Hobbs (hip) Friday. Reid said that everyone else practiced and is ready to go, meaning that wide receiver DeSean Jackson, barring a setback, is expected to play Sunday against the Indianapolis Colts for the first time since suffering a concussion in Week 6 against the Atlanta Falcons.

"I always leave that open when you're dealing with concussions," Reid said when asked about Jackson's status, "but he had a great practice. He's been feeling well and is ready to roll."

Reid added that Jackson is expected to return punts, as he's been practicing it all week.

Also returning to the lineup Sunday will be quarterback Michael Vick (ribs) and left tackle Jason Peters (knee). Defensive tackle Brodrick Bunkley practiced Friday and is hopeful to play Sunday, though Antonio Dixon is expected to start alongside Mike Patterson.

Dimitri Patterson will start at right cornerback in Hobbs' absence.
