It was a lively practice Sunday morning as the Eagles went live for a couple of periods. DeSean Jackson stole the show in the WR/DB one-on-one drills. Eldra Buckley proved once again just how tough he is once the pads are on.
After practice, the Eagles provided some injury updates. Linebacker Omar Gaither has ankle inflammation. Tight end Cornelius Ingram was rested because of his knee surgery, just precautionary. And linebacker Keenan Clayton was excused for personal reasons. Check out our practice tweet-cap. For up-to-the-second Eagles news, follow us on Twitter @EaglesInsider

"Kafka closes out live period with a bomb down right sideline to Jordan Norwood."
