WR Jackson Out For Sunday

It's not a surprise, but wide receiver DeSean Jackson will not play Sunday against the Titans after he suffered a concussion against the Falcons.

"I don't think he will play, no," head coach Andy Reid said on Wednesday.

Reid said that Jackson has not passed any of the neurological exams to date. Reid added that Jackson has some discomfort in the shoulder and chest area where Falcons cornerback Dunta Robinson leveled him early in the second quarter of the game. Robinson was fined $50,000 by the NFL as his helmet made contact with Jackson's helmet during the hit. Robinson also suffered a concussion.

Defensive tackle Brodrick Bunkley (elbow) and offensive tackle Jason Peters (knee) will not practice on Wednesday. Reid said that Bunkley is "making improvement" and is officially day-to-day. Neither player was in the lineup against the Falcons last week. Antonio Dixon started at defensive tackle with Mike Patterson, but Trevor Laws had a majority of the reps. King Dunlap took Peters' place in the lineup.

Running back LeSean McCoy (rib) took park in the team's walkthrough, but will do very little in practice, according to Reid. McCoy had 64 rushing yards and 21 receiving yards against Atlanta.
