Cornerback Cary Williams was among the injured Eagles to return to practice on Sunday.

Williams has missed most of training camp with a hamstring injury. Running back LeSean McCoy (knee) was also back in action, as was defensive tackle Antonio Dixon (hamstring). Sunday's practice at Lincoln Financial Field will be a light session as the players aren't wearing pads.

The Eagles also signed long snapper James Winchester to fill in for Jon Dorenbos, who suffered a concussion in Friday night's preseason game against the Patriots. The Eagles are hoping that Dorenbos will be cleared to play in time for Thursday night's preseason game against the Panthers. Winchester is an undrafted rookie free agent out of Oklahoma.

The following Eagles will miss practice: tackle Jason Peters (hamstring), running back Bryce Brown (quadriceps), linebacker Phillip Hunt (knee), linebacker Casey Matthews (knee), wide receiver Damaris Johnson (hamstring), tackle Ed Wang (knee) and tackle Dennis Kelly (knee).
