Head coach Doug Pederson spoke to the media on Wednesday morning to discuss the injuries from the Falcons game. Tight end Dallas Goedert (Wade), wide receiver DeSean Jackson (groin) and Alshon Jeffery (calf) and running back Corey Clement (shoulder) recover daily from their injuries. According to Pederson, defensive action against Tim Jernigan's foot injury is the only one that will take longer.
"They are fine, and we will release an update by the end of the week," Pederson said. "That's why we're practicing this kind of exercise today, so we can get it out there."
While Wednesday's NFL usually provide for a fully cushioned workout, Pederson opted for a walk-through instead of the whole team will be of greater use in preparation for the Lions on Sunday.
"Number one, with the guys who are a bit on their feet and have the chance to take part in this football game, I would like them for the reps "Then we have two young people who may need to play and who also support the defense or the offensive. In this way, everyone can still practice and keep their focus and do the work we need to do today.
After the matchup weekend against Detroit, the Eagles have a short week-long Packers on Thursday Night Football . Pederson is now taking steps to maximize the success of everyone in the team.
"I want these guys to be as fresh as possible for the next two weeks. I have to think about the big picture here, "said Pederson. It's early in our season so we're going to keep the boys as fresh as possible so we can boost them later in our season. "
