Watkins, Landri Return To Practice

After missing Wednesday's practice due to injury, starting guard Danny Watkins and starting defensive tackle Derek Landri returned to the field on Thursday. Watkins was a full participant with a chest injury that he suffered in the win over the Giants. Landri was limited with a knee injury, but head coach Andy Reid prefaced on Wednesday that he expected Landri to be fine by Sunday's 1 PM kickoff with the Steelers.

The only player to miss practice was starting weakside linebacker Akeem Jordan, who will likely miss this Sunday's game due to a hamstring injury. Jamar Chaney is in line to make his second straight start.

Everyone else was a full participant for the Eagles.

There were two additions to the injury report Thursday for the Eagles. Wide receiver Jason Avant was listed with a wrist injury. He was not on Wednesday's injury report, but has battled the wrist injury for a few weeks. In fact, he came out of Sunday's win over the Giants briefly due to the injury. Linebacker Mychal Kendricks was also added with a calf injury.

The signs continue to point to a fully healthy Steelers team this Sunday. Four players were on their injury report and all of them have been full participants all week - offensive tackle Marcus Gilbert (groin), linebacker James Harrison (knee), running back Rashard Mendenhall (knee) and safety Troy Polamalu.
