While Philadelphia Eagles defensive lineman Mike Patterson
could rejoin the team Monday against the New Orleans Saints, offensive lineman Danny
Watkins and defensive lineman Cullen Jenkins did not practice Thursday,
according to Chris McPherson of PhiladelphiaEagles.com.
Despite missing practice yesterday, coach Andy Reid told
reporters that he expects Jenkins to be ready to play against the Saints. The
defensive tackle is recovering from a hyper extended knee he sustained against
the Atlanta Falcons last weekend. It caused him to exit the contest, but he was
able to return to finish the game.
Watkins missed the Falcons game, and it appears that he
could be sidelined once again this weekend by an ankle injury. Reid said that
his offensive guard will “struggle” to play. Dennis Kelly will start in Watkins
place if he’s unable to suit up.
