BETHLEHEM — DJax was back in a role Eagles fans are used to seeing him in Friday at Lehigh.

Jackson fielded punts and participated in 11-on-11 shell drills during the Eagles' shoulder pads-and-helmet-practice session Friday afternoon. He looked fine catching consecutive passes from quarterback Kevin Kolb on out patterns, where he's forced to turn his hips and twist and his body.

Jackson declined to comment to reporters after practice, continuing his training camp silence.

Kolb said it was great to have Jackson back on the field. "He looked great," Kolb said. "He was moving good. We didn't'want to push anything."
