Eagles Injury Update: DeSean tweaks ankle
Share This Post

Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson tweaked his ankle at practice Wednesday, an injury that isn’t considered major.

The team listed Jackson, who leads the Eagles with 45 receptions, 673 yards and five touchdowns, as limited on the injury report. There aren’t any indications that he won’t be ready to play Sunday against the Raiders at the O.co Coliseum.

Out of Wednesday’s practice were linebacker Jake Knott (hamstring), wide receiver/return specialist Damaris Johnson (ankle) and running back Chris Polk (shoulder). Knott missed the Giants game with a hamstring injury that he sustained against Dallas.

Limited along with Jackson were punter Donnie Jones, linebacker Casey Matthews (hip), left tackle Jason Peters (shoulder, finger), defensive end Cedric Thornton (knee) and quarterback Michael Vick (hamstring).

Nick Foles, who missed all practices last week with a concussion, practiced in full and will start against the Raiders (see story). Safety Patrick Chung (shoulder) and long snapper Jon Dorenbos (groin) were also full participants.

Chung was a full participant in practice last week but still missed his second straight game as he deals with a nerve issue in his injured shoulder.
