After watching Kenny Britt treat the Eagles’ secondary like marathon tape two days ago, you Philly fans could use some good news.
Here’s something that’ll warm your cheesesteak: Wideout DeSean Jackson passed his concussion test and could play against Indy after the bye week:
Philadelphia EaglesWR DeSean Jackson passed a test intended to clear him to return from a concussion, coach Andy Reid said Monday night.
Still, Reid did not give the green light to Jackson playing when the Eagles return from bye in Week 9.
Reid also said that offensive tackle Jason Peters and defensive tackle Brodrick Bunkley could also return to the lineup a week from Sunday. So the Eagles could have Jackson, Peters, and Bunkley back in addition to Michael Vick, who is certain to return. All this AND Tony Romo broke his collarbone? Pinch me, I must be dreaming!
The fact that Jackson could even return this season is something miraculous. Anyone who saw that Dunta Robinson hit could’ve sworn Jackson’s spinal cord had been snapped like a twig. Instead, he could end up missing but a single game. Is that too soon for someone who nearly had his head taken off just a few days ago?
Well, it IS the Colts, you know. It’s kinda' worth it.
