Hurricane has NFL considering schedule options for Eagles-Redskins

The NFL is monitoring the weather in the Mid-Atlantic region and has been in contact with the Eagles and Washington Redskins about scheduling contingencies for their game Sunday in Landover, Md.

Hurricane Joaquin has the potential to be a significant storm in the region. The Washington Post first reported that the league is looking into contingencies.

"We have had discussions with the NFL as they are monitoring the weather for this week in Washington," an Eagles spokesman said.

There is no word on when or where the game would be moved if the league decided to make a change.

Poll

Which former Eagle does the team miss the most?

Bradford's take

Sam Bradford said he does not have an explanation for the Eagles' offensive problems early this season, but he does not think it's "a long ways off." He believes the offense can be rectified with "a small correction here and there."

"If I knew, it would already be corrected," Bradford said. "You just look at the tape from the past couple of weeks, I feel there's small mistakes all over the place. We've got to do a better job as an offense to be more consistent. It takes 11 guys to be successful. Unfortunately, there hasn't been enough times when we've all been doing the right things."

The Eagles have struggled with the deep ball this season. Bradford said the Eagles "haven't called a lot of deep balls" and said he hopes it's something they can do to if the matchup allows.

DeSean remains iffy

Former Eagles receiver DeSean Jackson did not practice for Washington on Wednesday because of a hamstring injury that has kept him out since Week 1. Washington coach Jay Gruden said his expectations are "lukewarm" about Jackson playing. He remains hopeful, but he is not counting on Jackson returning.

"When you're talking about a guy who runs as fast as he does, when you don't have everything working - hamstrings, quads, whatever it is - he knows that's the most important thing," Gruden said. "Obviously he would love to play against the Eagles, or any division opponent for that matter, but especially the Eagles. But we have to make sure he's healthy. We don't want this thing to linger throughout the season."

Eagles defensive coordinator Bill Davis has said the Eagles are preparing as if Jackson is playing.

Extra points

Running back DeMarco Murray was a limited participant in practice with a hamstring injury. Defensive end Taylor Hart (hamstring) and tackle Jackson Peters (quadriceps) were also limited. Wide receiver Riley Cooper (knee) and safety Chris Maragos (quadriceps) did not practice.
