WR Mike Wallace Limited in Thursday's Practice

Wide receiver Mike Wallace was a limited participant in his first full practice since suffering a fractured fibula back in Week 2 against Tampa Bay. He was activated from Injured Reserve on December 24.

Wallace was one of four Eagles who was limited on Thursday along with linebacker D.J. Alexander (hamstring), tackle Jason Peters (quadricep), and guard Isaac Seumalo (pectoral).

Defensive tackle Fletcher Cox (hip) and safety Corey Graham (illness) were full participants.

Some news to monitor on defense as linebacker Jordan Hicks was added to the injury report Thursday as a non-participant with a calf injury. Hicks missed four games with a calf injury and returned for last Sunday's win over Houston. He had five tackles in 43 snaps.

"Jordan is a really important part of our defense, not just from is playing standpoint, but from leadership and a play-calling standpoint," defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz said on Thursday. "So, it was certainly good to get him back on the field in I guess you would say a limited role that he was out there. It was a little tough for him later in that game. He got a little bit fatigued."

Defensive end Michael Bennett (foot) also missed practice along with cornerback Sidney Jones (hamstring), center Jason Kelce (knee), and quarterback Carson Wentz (back).

Washington placed tight end Jordan Reed on Injured Reserve on Thursday. Defensive lineman Matt Ioannidis (hamstring) has not practiced this week.
