Tim Jernigan, Jordan Hicks Full Participants In Wednesday's Walkthrough

The Eagles held a walkthrough on Wednesday as a team ahead of Sunday's regular-season finale in Washington. The injury report from the walkthrough was an estimation.

Wide receiver Mike Wallace, who was activated from the Injured Reserve list Tuesday, aims to make his first appearance since Week 2. He was limited in practice with his ankle injury. Head coach Doug Pederson was not expecting to learn much when he spoke to the media in his Wednesday morning press conference.

"Today is a walkthrough, so we won't see too much out of him today, but when we get out there tomorrow and let him run around and see where he's at, it's still going to be a day-to-day thing with him, and we'll make a decision obviously later in the week and see how he is," Pederson said.

Linebacker D.J. Alexander (hamstring), defensive tackle Fletcher Cox (hip), and center Jason Kelce (knee) were also limited.

Defensive end Michael Bennett (foot), safety Corey Graham (illness), cornerback Sidney Jones (hamstring), tackle Jason Peters (quadricep), guard Isaac Seumalo (pectoral), and quarterback Carson Wentz (back) all did not participate in practice Wednesday.

Pederson said that he would evaluate Peters, who left last Sunday's game against the Texans early and did not return, but expects him to play Sunday. Peters has dealt with injuries all season and Pederson said he's done well considering it.

"He battles through it," Pederson said. "He comes in and gets his work in and he puts himself in a position to help us on Sundays. It'll be no different this week. But I think maybe deep down, any time I think a player feels that every single week, at some point you get a little frustrated because you definitely want to be healthier."

Two names left off the injury report were linebacker Jordan Hicks and defensive tackle Tim Jernigan. Both returned to the field on Sunday after long absences and played in slightly limited roles. But Pederson said Jernigan, who has played in just two games this season after undergoing offseason surgery, has felt better and can handle a bigger role at Washington. He said the same about the defense's starting middle linebacker in Hicks after he missed four games with a calf injury.

"It's hard to put a player – give him a full complement right away – because it's different than training and rehab," Pederson said. "I thought he did what he – it's kind of like Tim Jernigan. What he was given, he did well, and now we can probably increase that load this week."

The Eagles will hold their first full practice of the week on Thursday.
