Surprisingly, the report is identical to yesterday. Starting cornerback Ronald Darby is still limited with his ankle injury which leaves his potential return on Sunday questionable. The Eagles don’t want to rush Darby back too soon and unless he’s a full-go in practice tomorrow, we may not see him on the field until the team play Denver.

Jordan Hicks didn’t practice but is yet to be placed on IR. The Eagles did sign former Villanova LB Don Cherry to their practice squad, but it will be interesting to see what they decide to do with regards to his spot on the roster.

Elsewhere, the team are nearing a completely clean bill of health aside from the huge injuries to Peters and Hicks. The DT position is now fully re-enforced and Wendell Smallwood is practicing as normal after his impressive return on Monday night.
