Max Jean-Gilles cleared all his post-concussion examinations and expects to play Monday, but Eagles coach Andy Reid was undecided Saturday as to whether Jean-Gilles or Cole would start against the Redskins.
Jean-Gilles did practice for the first time since his concussion on Sunday against the Colts, but the extra repetitions with the first team also had something to do with the Eagles resting Cole's injured knee. Jean-Gilles is listed as questionable.
"We backed off Nick a little bit today to make sure he took care of his knee," Reid said. "Both of them got reps. We'll see what happens on game day."
Safety Nate Allen (neck) and cornerback Ellis Hobbs (hip) are out. Rookie Kurt Coleman and Dimitri Patterson will fill in for Allen and Hobbs, Reid said. Allen did not practice. Hobbs was limited.
