Jason Babin returned to practice on Monday for the first time since suffering a calf injury on July 28. He expects to play Sunday against the Cleveland Browns with the same rotation as usual.

"I'm about 98.9 [percent]," Babin said.

Babin, a two-time Pro Bowl defensive end, did not participate in any of the preseason games or throughout training camp after the injury.

"I was bummed," Babin said. "I trained my butt off this year to get prepared. That's what the way it goes. Kind of, looking back now, I'm glad it happened. It really made me think about how precious every snap is."

Safety Colt Anderson had full participation in practice after missing the entire offseason while recovering from a torn ACL. Anderson was activated from the physically unable to perform list on Friday.

He said it was coach Andy Reid's decision whether he's able to play on Sunday.

"I could play; I could not," Anderson said. "It's all still up in the air."

***

As expected, quarterback Michael Vick practiced and took the first-team snaps. He said he made throws he hasn't been able to make in awhile.

WR Riley Cooper (collarbone) did not practice. Casey Matthews (ankle) practiced.
