The Eagles continued to exercise caution with DeSean Jackson, holding the wide receiver out of a second consecutive practice Thursday because of a concussion.
That means it’s more than likely Jackson will miss Sunday’s game against the Falcons.
Eagles coach Andy Reid said Wednesday that the team wouldn’t rush Jackson back into action, despite the importance of the game. The Eagles are 7-4 and currently hold one of the NFC’s wild-card playoff spots, but the Falcons are 6-5 and would own the head-to-head tiebreaker with a win at the Georgia Dome.
Jackson leads the Eagles in receiving yards (769) and receiving touchdowns (six), and he also handles punt-return duties. He sustained the concussion during last Sunday’s 27-24 victory over the Redskins.
The Eagles did receive some good news Thursday when DT Brodrick Bunkley fully practiced on his injured ankle. Bunkley missed Wednesday’s workout.
