As the Eagles practiced yesterday, linebacker Jordan Hicks (above) and defensive lineman Tim Jernigan were participants after being listed as limited in Wednesday’s walkthrough.
Both were going through position drills during the portion of practice open to reporters.
Getting two starters back for a huge game would obviously give this defense a boost. With Hicks’ being a full participant, it looks like he should return this week.
Jernigan hasn’t played since the Giants game, and those are the only 20 snaps he’s played all season.
Hicks hasn’t played since hurting his calf in New Orleans; he’s missed the last four games.
