Alshon Jeffery sustained a biceps injury during practice this week, resulting in him being a limited participant in Thursday’s practice session.
Eagles coach Doug Pederson said the injury isn’t serious, and he expects Jeffery to be fine.
“He had a run-in, collision during practice,” Pederson said. “We had pads on that day and just bumped his arm. We just kept him out yesterday for extra treatment, rehab, he’ll be fine.”
Jeffery stretched with the team on Friday without any wraps or tape on his arms, and was a full participant in practice.
Pederson reiterated his confidence that defensive end Derek Barnett will be ready to go Sunday against Washington.
The 2017 first-round pick was limited in practice this week before becoming a full participant on Friday. Barnett is dealing with a shoulder injury after having rotator cuff surgery last fall. Pederson said he felt good about Barnett’s progress on Monday, but defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz sounded a bit more conservative on Thursday.
“We’re concerned with everybody, but we got a long way to go until Sunday,” Schwartz said. “We’ll see where everybody is. We have good depth at that position. I think whoever we put out there will be able to get the job done.”
