Bunkley will play; Jordan still questionable

Eagles defensive coordinator Sean McDermott said he expects to have defensive tackle Brodrick Bunkley for Sunday's game against the Atlanta Falcons, but the status for linebacker Akeem Jordan remains unclear.

Bunkley did not practice Wednesday after suffering a sprained ankle Sunday against Washington. Jordan, meanwhile, worked with the scout team Wednesday for the first time since being sidelined by a hyperextended injury late in the Eagles' Nov. 8 game against Dallas.

Jordan said before this afternoon's practice that he anticipated running with the scout team again today.

Wide receiver DeSean Jackson declined to talk for the second straight day about the concussion that forced him out of Sunday's game against the Redskins. It remains unlikely that Jackson will play.

Fine appeals

A large group of Eagles players were fined $10,000 each for a group celebration after a touchdown by tight end Brent Celek during the team's season opener at Carolina.

All of them appealed and they finally received letters today on the results.

Wide receiver Kevin Curtis was the big winner. Curtis' $10,000 fine was completely erased. The injured wide receiver said he also got $5,000 back for a fine he received for the way he wore his socks during a 2007 game. Curtis said the league never even heard his appeal about the sock fine.

DeSean Jackson did not get any refund from his appeal, while Celek and fellow tight end Alex Smith each had their fines reduced to $7,000. Center Jamaal Jackson's fine was cut to $5,000.
