As the Eagles continued to prepare for what amounts to a must-win game against the San Francisco 49ers Sunday, the list of walking wounded remained long.
Defensive end Juqua Parker, hampered by a knee injury, missed practice for the second straight day, but said afterward that he does expect to play. Darren Howard ran with the first-team defense in Parker's absence.
The status for wide receiver Reggie Brown, however, is not as certain. Brown, who missed the first two games with a hamstring injury, left practice Wednesday with a groin injury and did not practice today. Brown has caught a team-high 10 passes for 163 yards in the Eagles' last two games and had 106 receiving yards in a game at San Francisco two seasons ago.
"He is better than he was yesterday," offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg said before practice.
