Eagles cornerback Jalen Mills (31 above with Ronald Darby) will practice Wednesday for the first time since last October 28 when he injured his foot in the Eagles’ game in London’s Wembley Stadium against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Mills missed the final eight regular-season games plus two postseason games in 2018 and the first six games of 2019.
He remains on the Physically Unable to Perform list and does not count against the Eagles’ 53-man roster – on which the team currently has 51 players. The Eagles have 21 days from now – technically, they have until Day 22, Tuesday November 5 at 4 p.m. – to determine whether to add Mills to the active roster or keep him on PUP for the remainder of the 2019 season.
A seventh-round draft pick in 2016, Mills started 25 of the 39 regular-season games he played prior to the injury, along with all three postseason games in the Super Bowl season of 2017. Mills has recorded 203 tackles, three interceptions, and 46 passes defensed in the regular season with the Eagles.
