Philadelphia Eagles Injury Report, Week 6: Mixed News On Injury Front For Reeling Eagles

The Washington Redskins look to retain their lead in the NFC East this Sunday when they host the struggling Philadelphia Eagles at Fed Ex Field. The Redskins will enter the Week 6 showdown rested and in fairly good shape injury-wise following their bye week. As for Philadelphia, here's the good news on the injury front. The following long list of banged up players participated fully in Thursday's practice:

safety Nate Allen (knee), wide receiver Jason Avant (hip), tackle Winston Justice (knee), safety Jarrad Page (stinger), wide receiver Steve Smith (knee), defensive end Darryl Tapp (pectoral) and guard Julian Vandervelde (elbow)

Defensive end Trent Cole sat out Thursday's practice though due to a calf injury.  Juqua Parker, also a defensive end, was limited this afternoon after taking Wednesday off to nurse an ankle injury.

The injury bug extends to the Eagles' offense as well, most notably along the offensive line. T Jason Peters missed his second consecutive day with an ailing hamstring. He is considered doubtful for Sunday. King Dunlap, who wasn't on Wednesday's injury report, was forced to sit Thursday out with a back problem. That presents the possibility of Eagles having just two tackles active this Sunday.

The big question mark and cause for concern though is the status of Cullen Jenkins. The defensive tackle returned to practice on Thursday after sitting out Wednesday's session with a triceps injury. Jenkins reportedly expressed confidence that he'll be able to suit up against the 'Skins on Sunday. We'll have more information on Jenkins shortly.
