Alshon Jeffery was a full participant in Thursday’s practice after being limited on Wednesday, a strong sign for the Eagles number one receiver who has turned red hot over the last four games, receiving for 265 yards and five touchdowns.

Joe Walker was a non-participant for the second consecutive day. It’s looking unlikely that Walker will play on Sunday after picking up a stinger injury against the Bears. Look for Najee Goode or Kamu Grugier-Hill to step up to the plate if that is the case. The Eagles do have a wildcard in Dannell Ellerbe waiting in the wings too.

Meanwhile, Derek Barnett was reduced to a limited role after a groin injury was noted in yesterday’s report. The rookie has been outstanding this season and after being reduced to limited today, will be worth paying attention to in tomorrow’s final report. Barnett has been an integral part of the Eagles front four success this season and would be a big loss.

Jason Kelce was limited for the second consecutive day, while both Patrick Robinson and Trey Burton returned to practice in a full capacity, a hugely encouraging sign. If Kelce was to miss the clash against Seattle, Philly would turn to either Wisniewski or Seumalo to carry the load. Kelce is having an incredible season and is leading his position in NFC Pro Bowl votes.
