Eagles cornerback Darius Slay returned to practice yesterday in a limited capacity, and is still in concussion protocol following last Sunday’s game in Pittsburgh.
He would need to be cleared by an independent neurologist before playing Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens.
Safety Will Parks is not on the injury report since he’s not yet on the active roster, but his teammates expect him to be activated ahead of Sunday’s matchup.
“Energy. That’s the first word that comes to mind for Will Parks, man. He’s a very energetic guy. Comes to work every day ready. He’s a guy that’s shown the ability to do it all. He’s made a lot of plays for us in camp. Unfortunately, he went down with the injury. Now he’s back and he’s been doing that this week,” safety Rodney McLeod said.
“He’s a guy that you can plug in anywhere. You want him to play linebacker? OK. You want him to play centerfield? He can do that. You want him to rush the passer? He can get it done. That’s what I like most about Will. I’m excited for him this week to get back out here and play in front of his hometown and make some plays for us on defense.”
A Philly native, Parks is designated for return from Injured Reserve. He suffered a hamstring injury before the season opener.
