Sidney Jones Says 'He's Good To Go' vs. Saints

Cornerback Sidney Jones was a full participant in Thursday's practice and afterward declared that he's "good to go" for Sunday's game against the Saints.

Jones missed the last three-plus games after suffering a hamstring injury in the Week 6 win over the Giants on October 11. The first-year cornerback has 23 tackles and two pass deflections.

Typically the nickel corner, Jones could see time on the outside Sunday against the Saints and their top-ranked scoring offense. 

"Inside and outside, they're pretty different," Jones said. "But at the end of the day, you play man coverage out here and just lock your guy up. At the end of the day, that's all it comes down to."

Some more good news for the Eagles as defensive tackle Haloti Ngata (knee) returned to practice in a limited capacity. He did not participate in Wednesday's session.

Four Eagles missed practice on Thursday: cornerbacks Ronald Darby (knee) and Jalen Mills (foot), tight end Joshua Perkins (knee), and running back Darren Sproles (hamstring). Tackle Lane Johnson (knee) was limited while safety Malcolm Jenkins (wrist) was a full participant.

It was the first day of snow in Philadelphia, but that didn't stop the Eagles from practicing. Check out the best photos.
