PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — It looks like Carson Wentz will get one of his top weapons back for Sunday’s game against the Chicago Bears. Eagles head coach Doug Pederson says wide receiver DeSean Jackson is on track to return from his injury.
“I’m optimistic that he’ll play. We’re gonna get through today, again. He’s had a great week of practice. He’s been limited on the injury report all week so we’ll get through today and tomorrow and we’re optimistic that he can play,” Pederson said during Friday’s press conference.READ MORE: Man Fatally Shot After Reportedly Pointing Gun At Officers In Plymouth Township
