Vick and Jackson make this a completely different team.
When the Eagles' injury report came out on Wednesday, there were only two names on it. Ellis Hobbs and King Dunlap both missed practice, but everyone else was a full participant. Obviously that would include quarterback Michael Vick and wide receiver DeSean Jackson -- two guys the team has missed dearly.
Vick missed nearly three entire games, and Jackson missed nearly two games. Were it not for the bye week during Week 8, both guys would have likely missed another game.
But now Vick is saying he's "100 percent" and ready to go Sunday, and Jackson seems like he is, at the very least, nearly ready to go.
"I don't have any aches anywhere on my body, no pain, no soreness, no swelling," Vick said Wednesday. "The bye week really did a wonder for me."
Jackson also participated fully in practice Wednesday and has passed all of his concussions tests, but was non-committal when asked if he would play against the Colts.
"I don’t know yet," Jackson said Wednesday. "We'll see. Go out through the week. We'll see how I do and things like that. Still, it's only Wednesday, so we still have a couple of days to get a feel for how I'm doing."
Since he's passed his tests and is practicing without any restrictions, I don't think it's a stretch to say Jackson will be on the field absent a huge setback.
Another injured big-name player, defensive tackle Brodrick Bunkley, also practiced without any limitations on Wednesday, although he did wear a sleeve on his elbow. It looks like Bunkley is going to play against the Colts, but whether or not he starts is another story.
