After missing three games with an MCL sprain, cornerback Asante Samuel, who leads the NFL with seven interceptions, was a full participant in Wednesday's practice. Head coach Andy Reid said earlier in the week that he expects Samuel to play this Sunday against the New York Giants, a team he victimized with two interceptions in their previous meeting.
Right tackle Winston Justice (hyperextended knee) was a limited participant in practice after he missed Sunday's win over the Dallas Cowboys. He said earlier that he hopes to play this Sunday.
Wide receiver DeSean Jackson (foot) and linebacker Keenan Clayton (hamstring) did not participate in Wednesday's practice.
Listed on the injury report as full participants were cornerback Jorrick Calvin (back), guard Nick Cole (knee) and tight end Clay Harbor (abdomen).
Starting middle linebacker Stewart Bradley is already listed as out with a dislocated elbow. Rookie Jamar Chaney will start in Bradley's place.
UPDATE: Wide receiver Mario Manningham (hip flexor) and guard Chris Snee (hip) did not practice for the Giants. The Giants only held a "jog-thru" on Wednesday. Manningham would start opposite Hakeem Nicks since Steve Smith was placed on the injured reserve list by the Giants on Wednesday. Click here for the complete Eagles-Giants injury report.
