Eagles Thursday Practice Report: Jason Peters Limited, Jenkins Returns
The Eagles are pretty healthy as they enter the second half of the season, getting ready to host the Miami Dolphins on Sunday.
Backup guard Josh Andrews (concussion) and backup safety Jerome Couplin (shoulder) were the only two players who weren't full participants Thursday because of an injury.
Left tackle Jason Peters was limited for the second straight after missing the Dallas game with a back injury, but Eagles coach Chip Kelly said he had "no idea" if Peters would play on Sunday but noted that he looked like he was making progress.
"He looked good," Kelly said. "He was limited; he didn’t go through the full practice, but he looked good in the reps he took. He took reps in team and in all three team periods today. He looked good."
A bunch of players including WR Nelson Agholor (ankle), LB Kiko Alonso (knee), TE Trey Burton (hamstring), WR Riley Cooper (toe), S Malcolm Jenkins (concussion), RB Ryan Mathews (groin), RB DeMarco Murray (groin) and LB DeMeco Ryans (hamstring) were listed as fill participants.
Even though Agholor has been practicing in full for two weeks, Kelly won't commit to him being active for the game.
"Yeah, we've seen improvement out of Nelson," Kelly explained. "But again, we have tomorrow's training and Saturday's training before we make a determination on him."
