An MRI performed on Trent Cole's right ankle Saturday revealed no structural damage, the Eagles said. The defensive end is listed as day to day with a mild ankle sprain.

Cole injured his ankle in the second quarter of the Eagles' 20-17 preseason win at Kansas City. He had to be carted off the field.

"Well I'm good nothing serious," Cole tweeted. "Time to recover and get after Green Bay."

The Eagles play their final preseason game Thursday against the New York Jets. Coach Andy Reid normally rests his starters in the final game before the regular season. The Eagles open against the Packers on Sept. 12.

Wide receiver Jared Perry and guard Zipp Duncan were also waived.
