December 18 Philadelphia Inquirer:
“DeSean Jackson and Asante Samuel are listed as questionable for Sunday’s game — though Jackson again hinted that he expects to play, saying, “I can’t let my troops go out there without me.” Both Pro Bowlers practiced in part for the Eagles on Friday, but were limited two days before their showdown at the New York Giants. Andy Reid said they did more work Friday than Thursday.
Tackle Winston Justice is also listed as questionable. King Dunlap, who filled in for Justice last week, said he expects to start after taking all of the first team repetitions in practice this week.
“As far as I know I am,” Dunlap said. “I’ve been taking the reps with the starters all week.”
Head coach Andy Reid said Jackson and Samuel are both doing better today, but did not give a definitive answer on whether they will be healthy enough to go on Sunday.”
