Jackson practicing; Westbrook watching

The Eagles apparently got a little healthier today. Wide receiver DeSean Jackson and defensive end Darren Howard were back practicing today after sitting out yesterday's session with various injuries.

Brian Westbrook, meanwhile, watched practice as his backup, LeSean McCoy, took all the first-team repetitions as the Eagles prepared for Sunday's big NFC East showdown with the Giants. Westbrook, who suffered a concussion against the Redskins on Monday, is expected to be a game-time decision.

Eagles coach Andy Reid said that the running back would begin doing some aerobic exercises tomorrow, which presumably means that his headache has either gone away or has gotten significantly better.

"He did better today," Reid said. "He's feeling a little bit better today than yesterday. He's getting better. We'll add a little bit tomorrow and see how he does. It's still going to be a game-time decision."
 
Macho Harris did not practice for the second straight day. The safety has an ankle sprain. Sean Jones and Quintin Demps are his potential replacements. Cornerback Dimitri Patterson (quadriceps) also didn't practice. 

Jackson (foot) and Howard (calf, ankle) were full participants in practice.
