Slay to play Sunday for Eagles, but Jackson is questionable, and Jeffery is out
Slay will have to stay symptom-free through the weekend to stay out of the protocol.
Eagles coach Doug Pederson said Friday that Darius Slay has cleared concussion protocol and should be ready to play Sunday. The cornerback will have to stay symptom-free through the weekend to stay out of the protocol, though.
At wide receiver, DeSean Jackson has a chance to play Sunday after missing the last two weeks with a hamstring injury. Alshon Jeffery, on the other hand, isn’t likely to return this weekend.
“In the case of DeSean Jackson, he had a really good day yesterday,” Pederson said. “He’ll get back out there today and practice, and I’m hopeful that things go well today and there’s a possibility for him. In Alshon’s case, we just incorporated him back into practice this week, taking team reps. We want to make sure he’s feeling good before we put him out there.”
