Eagles Thursday Injury Report: Four Wide Receivers Land on Injured List
Philadelphia Eagles receivers DeSean Jackson, Alshon Jeffery, J.J. Arcega-Whiteside and John Hightower each missed practice today. The Eagles' injury-ravaged receiver corps had only one healthy receiver from the active roster at practice on Thursday and that was Greg Ward.
As for Jackson, its the second day in a row he was unable to practice, making it look more and more doubtful he will be ready to go for Sunday's game with the 49ers.
Its that's the case, the Eagles could be heading to San Francisco with Ward, Hightower as the only two healthy wide outs on the active roster, Deontay Burnett could make the trip as could Quez Watkins if he is healthy enough to play.
Left tackle Jason Peters missed his second day in a row with an illness, but is expected to play on Sunday night. Special teams ace Rudy Ford, Lane Johnson and running back Miles Sanders all practiced on a limited basis, but corners Avonte Maddox and Trevor Williams did not participate either day due to injuries.
In all 11 names appeared on today's injury report as either out or limited at Thursday's practice.
