Trent Cole to have MRI on ankle; DeSean update

Defensive end Trent Cole will have an MRI on his injured ankle on Saturday morning when the Eagles return to Philadelphia, Andy Reid said after the 20-17 preseason victory over the Kansas City Chiefs.

Cole was injured in the second quarter when he was stepped on. He was carted back to the locker room and X-rays taken at the stadium were negative.

Darryl Tapp got a lot of reps with Cole sidelined.

In the other major injury story line from tonight, Reid said DeSean Jackson has a neck strain and was held out for the remainder of the game as a precaution.

In what perhaps is an understatement, Reid said, "We have plenty of work to do with the ones. There were some good things, but we have a lot of work to do."
